Richard Mille RM 031 High Performance
As its name spells out, this watch is performance at its pinnacle. Pushed to the extreme, each of the ten timepieces produced bears certification that ensures 61-days of non-stop testing. While this level of precision and detail housed in the massive 50mm platinum dial isn’t discernable to the naked eye, the two decade-old company is now recognized for its groundbreaking achievements in watchmaking. The round shape, a deviation from the classic tonneau, houses a direct-impulse escapement developed by Audemars Piguet, basically guaranteeing perfect performance. It also promises a chronometric variation of just zero to 30 seconds a month (translation: high performance over 30 days, not just 24 hours). It’s no wonder connoisseurs obsessed with mechanical performance describe it as the F1 of watches.
