On the wrist of a golfer like Bubba Watson, it was critical for Richard Mille to ensure that the RM 38-02 could withstand shocks of 10,000 g’s.
Supporting bridges in grade 5 titanium, the Carbon TPT® baseplate is very demanding in terms of machining, both because of its hardness and its skeletonization.
Staggering at the scale of a calibre only 9.19 mm thick, the engineers paid particular attention to its volume to deliver both a strong architectural dimension and the compactness necessary for its shock resistance.
Pink is a colour that has fascinated Bubba since his childhood. Initially, it expressed his youthful desire to stand out from the crowd. Since then it has become his trademark, adorning his clubs, his golf balls, his signature driver and his clothes.
Bubba also uses his iconic shade of pink to realise other dreams, increasing the visibility of causes he supports through his charitable commitments.
A 50-piece limited edition, this third tourbillon watch bearing the name of Bubba is a true technological marvel, the result of 4 requirements: lightness, extreme shock resistance, comfort and of course the “lucky” colour pink.
