When you tend to lean toward avant-garde piece when it comes to fashion, worry not because there are brands that will cater to your preference. However, when it comes to high-end timepieces, perhaps there are a few willing to craft unconventional pieces. For us, the brands that come to mind are Urwerk, Roger Dubuis, and Richard Mille. We know there are others more, but we’ve recently been featuring unique pieces from these luxury watchmakers. So let’s get started by introducing the Richard Mille 62-01 ACJ.
Richard Mille loves to do collaborations. One of the models we presented before was a tie-in with Sylvester Stallone. If you grew up watching the actor’s films, that particular model will tick all the right boxes for fans of Rocky or Rambo. This time the ACJ in the name stands for Airbus Corporate Jets, which lends the RM 62-01 ACJ high-flying pedigree. Boasting a whopping 816 parts, for its construction, the watchmaker uses titanium and TPT.
Some of the most eye-catching wristwatches in Richard Mille catalogue regularly sport beautiful damascene patterns. This unique aesthetic element comes from the exposed layers of the material used for the case. Then there’s the open-work dial, which we always prefer over the more traditional kind.
After all, why would you choose to hide the intricate inner workings of a horological masterpiece in the first place? As with other models by the brand, bright colours on the hands and indices are somewhat a trademark. The Richard Mille RM 62-01 ACJ reportedly features a vibrating alarm using an oscillating weight to gently nudge the user. Only 30 examples will be available and we know those would have been spoken for as of this writing.Only available here
