Richard Mille’s New Tourbillon Designed For Golfer Bubba Watson
The bubble-gum pink colour is a reference to the golfer’s signature drivers.
Richard Mille and PGA Tour golfer Bubba Watson might have just scored a hole in one.
Watson, who’s been an ambassador for the Swiss watchmaker since 2011, has for years asked the brand to create a bright pink watch. The eye-catching hue is the same colour as his signature drivers, which he’s been using for most of his professional career, perhaps most notably in charity drives. That vibrant colour is the first thing you notice about the new RM 38-02 Tourbillon, the fourth Richard Mille timepiece to bear Watson’s name.
Watson is hardly the only Richard Mille ambassador who was recruited from the top tier of the sports world. Earlier this month, world record-holding diver Arnaud Jerald tested a new RM diver during the Les Voiles de St. Barth boat race. In January, tennis great Rafael Nadal won the Australian Open—and set an all-time Grand Slam record—wearing one of the brand’s $1.4 million tourbilons. And late last year, Olympic fencer Miles Chamley-Watson signed on as one of the brand’s newest faces.
If you have your sights set on the new RM 38-02 Tourbillon, you’d better move fast. The watch is limited to just 50 pieces. Visit the Richard Mille website for more details.
