The RM 025 Tourbillon Chronograph Diver's Watch is a new outstanding timekeeping creation from famous high luxury watchmaker Richard Mille. The remarkable diver’s watch distinguishes from other Richard Mille timepieces not only due to its exterior appearance but also its ability to withstand the harshest conditions of the deep sea.

The RM 025 does not feature the signature tonneau shape of other Richard Mille watches. It demonstrates a round case, measuring 50.70 mm in diameter. It has been specifically constructed to perfectly resist the pressure 300 meters below the ocean’s surface. Such water-tightness corresponds to ISO 6425 diver’s watch standards, and is only possible with a round-shaped case.

The Richard Mille RM025 Tourbillon Chronograph Diver's case, developed as a secure water-tight construction, also boasts intricate workmanship. The case is crafted from a successful combination of red or white gold and titanium. It demonstrates a tripartite structure fixed with help of torque screws to guarantee a remarkably precise and even pressure sealing.

The unidirectional rotating bezel is worth special attention - it has 3 layers connected with a 24 screw system. The bezel system is screwed to the case , so it is absolutely stable and reliably protected from inadvertent dislocating or loosening. The unique screw system also gives an advantage of perfect adjustment with the bezel not tensioned info position. The impressive water resistance is also explained by a screw down crown and newly designed watertight chronograph pushers.

The Richard Mille RM 025 accommodates the exclusive Richard Mille Calibre 025 that appeared as a result of extensive research and development that lasted more than five years. The RM 025 calibre has been designed to guarantee ease of serviceability and utmost performance under most demanding conditions.
The hand-wound movement incorporates a column-wheel chronograph with a one-minute tourbillon provided with a variable-inertia balance beating at 21,600 vibrations per hour. The movement also provides a torque indicator showing the optimum mainspring tension curve, a 70-hour power reserve indicator and a selector of functions to choose between “neutral”, “winding” and “hand-setting”.

The caliber features a number of meticulously-engineered details, including friction-diminishing titanium components incorporated by the chronograph control, specialized tooth profiles, and an in-line design of the escapement for reduced friction.

This Diver’s watch will be produced in an extremely limited number per year, considering its complexity and intricate craftsmanship.
The timepiece is coupled with a specially designed rubber diver’s strap.

My guess is well NORTH of $100,000 for this watch. Who would even risk wearing that outside in fear of hurting it. WOW.

Although incredible, put that $ into perspective, think about the car you could buy for that $, or the Boat, or the fleet of bikes, or the race car. Or you could have that Pimptastic watch, that nobody would appreciate but you and the occasional Freek that you might wander into!
