Richard Mille

Recommended Posts

I hope I'm not wasting anyone's time by creating this thread, but I've always had a fascination with Richard Mille watches since I first saw one in my DuPont Registry magazine. I'd love to own the one in the photo I've attached once I have that type of money. It's truly a work of art and the others I've seen are no different. I would really like to hear what others think about these.

They seem insanely overpriced to me but I am cheap and quick to popo things that appear to be "faddish."

Never liked them, they look cool, but look like a replica watch. Their are a ton of copies out there, who knows whats real.

Given the prices of the Mille's I think the person wearing it may be a clue to whether or not it's real. Beyond that all high end watches have replicas, some very good.

I like the Bubba Watson watch. But I'll likely never have one. Seems like their prices are pretty insane.

If you have to have one, buy used!

Funny to look back in time. Like a few other smart luxury brands, Mille has done a great job limiting production, managing launches and killing discounts. They have their own corp stores (boutiques) and they are the only stores now that get hot pieces.

 

As a result, resale is now quite strong on the hot pieces. Some of the stuff is a little wierd but they are one of the few watchmakers innovating with movements and especially materials. I love the NTPT that looks cool, is super light and comes straight out of America’s Cup and F1.

Anyone know retail on the RM 011-03 in titanium? Chrono24 they seem to be around $135k asking.

Sprite, msrp is 115,000. If you get serious, let me know if you want a great contact at a factory store.

 

You really should consider an NTPT model, their carbon is awesome and it’s kind of their special thing.
