$1.9 million Richard Mille watches are the world’s thinnest watch wearing by Charles Leclerc and Carlos Sainz
At 1.75mm, the case of the RM UP-01 is thinner than the strap attached to it. The watch weighs just 30 grams, including the strap, and took about 6,000 hours to develop. Despite its slenderness, the watch is capable of withstanding 5000Gs and comes with a power reserve of 45 hours.
A pair of Formula One stars have a new accessory, and if you want one, it will set you back $1.9 million.
Luxury watchmaker Richard Mille announced its newest watch, the RM UP-01 Ferrari, the thinnest watch ever made at just 1.75 mm.
The watch is the latest piece coming out of the partnership between Richard Mille and Ferrari, which began in 2021. Only 150 of these watches will be made, and according to Hodinkee.com, they will have a retail price of $1.88 million.
The watch's case, base plate, and bridges are made of Grade 5 titanium, a material used in the aerospace and aeronautics industries, and can withstand forces up to 5,000 Gs.
The watch gets two crowns—one to set the winding or hand-setting function and the other to activate them.
Just in case the Richard Mille logo is not enough, you also get the Prancing Horse on the titanium surface.
The RM UP 01 is limited to 150 pieces, and at $1.9 million, you’ll need to be an F1 driver—like Ferrari’s Charles Leclerc or Carlos Sainz Jr to pick one of these up.
