After the success of the limited edition RM 038 Golfer’s Tourbillon released in 2011, Richard Mille undertook the development of yet another specific tourbillon watch for Bubba Watson with added functionalities to complement his powerful drives on the course.
The result is the RM 38-01 Bubba Watson, a timepiece that combines a patented g-sensor with a tourbillon mechanism, thus providing new insights for golfers during their game.
The G-sensor mechanism is integrated into the heart of a manual winding tourbillon movement with circa 48 hours of power reserve. The movement is a technological marvel with its highly skeletonized, asymmetrical flying bridges and plates machined from grade 5 titanium with PVD treatment. This choice of materials and finish ensure rigidity, flatness and resistance for all the moving parts, simultaneously allowing the movement to effortlessly express its architectural aspirations of air and form.
the RM 38-01 G-sensor Bubba Watson provides all golfers with new insights about the strength of their swing and thus allows them to better adapt the power of their technique accordingly to the playing requirements of each course they compete on. It represents the perfect synthesis of haute horlogerie with 21st century innovation, comfort and usefulness for today’s golf enthusiasts worldwide.
