Richard Mille has become a specialist in the production of ultra-robust watches. And ‘ultra’ is no mere word, since these timepieces are worn in real-life conditions by racing drivers, tennis players, golfers, skiers and polo players, even if that occasionally means breaking them. These watches’ resistance to violent impacts has led the brand to explore a whole new territory. After an encounter with Sylvester Stallone, Richard Mille is unveiling a dedicated 20-watch limited series clearly intended for survivalists, extreme adventurers and larger-than-life action heroes. The chronograph and tourbillon movement is housed in a case measuring 51mm in diameter and 23mm thick. Caliber RM25-01 is an evolved and reinforced version of the mechanism already used by the brand on several occasions. The bidirectional bezel may be swapped for a removable compass bezel made of titanium and carbon TPT® and fitted with a dedicated lid. A spirit level on the case of the side serves to balance the compass and is accompanied by a small compartment at 2 o’clock designed to provide safe storage of water purification tablets (or other valuable tiny items). The volumes, functions, added extras, along with the movement, the materials and the colors, all combine to ensure that the RM 25-01 Sylvester Stallone lives up to its name embodying its destiny : adventure.
