SHOWSTOPPER WATCHES OF THE YEAR: Richard Mille RM 50-03

RM50-03 FULLFRONT RGB

HIGHLY COMMENDED

Richard Mille, founder of his eponymous watch brand, says the company is rapidly increasing production and will make around 4600 timepieces next year, an increase of 30% units in just two years.

The number may seem small, but this is a watch business that made only 70 of this show stopping limited edition McLaren F1 RM 50-03 and priced them at $1 million (£760m) each.

They sold out before their official on sale date.

The RM 50-03 tourbillon split seconds chronograph ultralight McLaren F1 weighs less than 40 grams – including the new strap – which Richard Mille claims is the lightest mechanical chronograph ever made.

The 31mm x 32mm carbon case is injected with graphene, as is a transverse cage.

This adds strength, but not weight to this beautiful watch.
