Youhan Blake, a 23-year-old Jamaican sprinter, is one of the best sprinters in the world today. He won many medals at the 2012 London Olympics and became the focus of sports. In August of this year, Blake ran an outstanding result of 69 seconds and 69 seconds in the men’s 100-meter sprint in the Lausanne Diamond League, with a real-time speed of 37.15 kilometers.
Youhan Blake has been invited to be the spokesperson for the Richard Mille brand since July 2012, wearing a test version of a Richard Mille tourbillon watch for a real-life sprint test. Based on this, Richard Mille’s engineers can precisely define the track and field athletes Need detailed performance requirements of the watch.
Like other sports stars who endorse the Richard Mille watch factory, Blake, a new member of the ‘RM family’, has also developed a watch specially designed for sprinters around the world with the Richard Mille watch factory. The RM 59-01 Yohan Blake Tourbillon watch overcomes all challenges, with a moving streamlined body and ergonomic design.In addition to its super high performance, it also has an unprecedented architectural structure that meets the sprinter and Richard Mille Watch factory strict requirements.
Picking up a RM 59-01, the eyes were naturally attracted by the bridge. The dynamic design captures the entire movement, like the claws of a beast, reminiscent of Blake’s nickname ‘The Beast’. The bridge plate is made of high-strength, corrosion-resistant aluminum alloy Pb109 made of aluminum, magnesium, silicon, and lead alloys. In addition to supporting the tourbillon frame and the center wheel, it also allows the entire class 5 titanium metal plate to be more closely connected to the case. The bridge is first anodized and then painted green and yellow by hand … These two colors are also displayed on the aluminum flange.At the request of Youhan Blake, these two Jamaican flags are used. Colors pay tribute to Blake’s motherland!
The RM 59-01 is equipped with a skeletonized tourbillon manual-winding movement with a frequency of 21,600 vibrations per hour and a power reserve of approximately 48 hours. The combination of grade 5 titanium and Pb109 high-strength corrosion-resistant aluminum alloy, coupled with an optimized gear system and a variable inertia balance, make this watch’s performance, regularity, and power reserve ratio reach the top equilibrium state.
The case of the RM 59-01 Yohan Blake watch is a new interpretation of Richard Mille’s favorite barrel-shaped case and an innovative interpretation. The increasing thickness of the case and the elongated shape between 2 and 5 o’clock are amazing, which also avoids friction between the dynamometer crown and Youhan Blake’s wrist, while retaining the wear Great comfort. The case is made of a translucent composite containing millions of carbon nanotubes. It is one of the materials with the best endurance. At least 50 GPa pressure is required to damage the internal components to the micron level. The unique translucent appearance allows the wearer to see the intricacies of the movement.
RM 59-01 is full of unique marks and stands proudly among the brand’s watch collections. Its shape and architecture fully reflect the competitive spirit of Youhan Blake; its performance and unprecedented innovation once again highlight the concept of Richard Mille’s continuous pursuit of exquisite products.
RM 59-01 Yohan Blake Tourbillon watch is made of carbon nanotubes, limited to 50 pieces.
