Richard Mille created the model RM038 specially for the PGA Tour winning golfer – Bubba Watson. He developed a movement that can overcome the environment of temperature, gravity and vibration，which a golfer may constantly experiences and can affect the timekeeping ability of his watch. This resulted in the creation of the RM038 which adopted materials such as ATZ - an aluminum-zirconium-titanium and a grade 5 titanium with a rubber casting to ensure the that watch can absorb any vibrations from the impact of a golf swing to the constant climate change on a golf course.
Incredibly light, the movement itself weigh only a mere 4.3 grams and it is astonishingly comfortable with the sporty curved case.
The present lot, the RM055 was inspired by the first Bubba Watson, RM038 and can be considered a modern interpretation of a creative and functional 20th century high-end luxury sports watch.
