Richard Mille is set to launch a 20-piece commemorative collection of flyback chronographs after its polo team won the final of the Deauville Gold Cup.
The Richard Mille polo players beat the Royal Barriere team 15-14. Their top scorer, Pablo MacDonough, wore a custom-made Richard Mille during the match – a tourbillon launched at SIHH earlier this year.
The brand will now launch a limited edition 20-piece collection of watches, RM 011 Polo de Deauville Flyback Chronographs, which will be available at selected Richard Mille retailers across Europe, Africa, the Middle East and Russia.
The piece comes in a customised box, decorated to match the number of the edition on each piece.
The watch has a white gold case with a titanium DLC treated caseband with a black rubber strap and a white gold or titanium buckle. The sapphire glass on the rear is engraved with the polo club’s logo. Each watch comes with an additional strap in black alligator with red stitching.
