    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.

    About 10 years ago someone wore one at an WIS event in Palo Alto, created quite a stir. I have the feeling
    that after you've seen one, you've pretty much seen them all.

    Agree.They don't have diversity despite many models, and trying a few on I was underwhelmed

    They have how many "limited" editions? They all are the same it seems. Their Diver is the only one that sticks out at this point.

    They make some fantastic bits of kit; I just wish they came in different cases.

    RM seems to be the big sports/celebrity watch right now, lots of them sporting these nowadays. I personally think its still better than diamond/gold Rolex and Hublots so more power to them.
