If you like the Richard Mille Yohan Blake watch but find the original Jamaican flag colors of yellow and green a little too strident, there is now the RM 61-01 Yohan Blake Monochrome, a limited edition of just 50 pieces available exclusively at Richard Mille Boutiques in Geneva, Paris, London Mount Street, Harrods, Milan, Monaco, Dubai, Abu Dhabi & Doha.
The case of the RM 61-01 Yohan Blake Monochrome is created using black TZP-N ceramic with a caseband in NTPT® carbon. The white flying bridges, crown rubber, strap & lower flange create the sharply defined monochrome look.
Yohan Blake is the second fastest man in history over 100m and 200m and the aerodynamic shape of the watch accentuates this with drawn out lines between the 2 and 5 o’clock positions on the case. This timepiece also features novel crown protectors, offering full security to the crown during sports and other activities.
The skeletonised RMUL2 movement with 55 hours power reserve is built in grade 5 titanium treated with PVD and Titalyt® using a free sprung balance beating at 4Hz. Developed expressly for sport, Richard Mille has consciously aimed for exceptional impact resistance, with validation testing for the RM 61-01 carried out in excess of 5000 G’s.
