Richard Mille is a “niche” brand when compared with other big Swiss watch brands like Rolex, Panerai and others. It is easily recognized due to its tonneau-shaped appearance. Actually each watch brand has their own attractiveness not matter how “niche” it is. Richard Mille always won people’s attention by its unique dial design. Besides, because of being promoted by tennis super star Nadal, now the young brand Richard Mille has gotten a high recognition.
The watch I am going to introduce today is a skull watch, there is a big 3D skull pattern in golden on the dial. I reviewed another skull watch before, it is BR-01 Airborne from Bell & Ross. The skull dial on BR-01 is lumed while the skull on Richard Mille is more three-dimensional.
This is a replica and has a lot of difference with genuine, especially on its dial and case back, you can find too much fake spots. And this replica Richard Mille is sold at an expensive price, which is almost $500 usd. If I were you, I would rather spend these money on a high quality PAM or V6s Sub, but If you were a super Richard Mille fan, this watch will stay cool on wrist.
The whole case is made of 316L stainless steel and has thick black pvd coating. I have tried this watch and found it more fit my wrist than other watches, with rubber strap, the watch stay steadily on my wrist, and will not slide like other watches with steel bracelet. Besides, rubber strap is more suitable to be worn in hot summer, it brings a good wearing comfort for people who usually sweat a lot. The tonneau case has a certain bending so it could perfectly fit your wrist. This is the main reason why I love tonneau watches.
Skeleton dial has a golden skull decoration. There are white Tachymeter scales and “RICHARD MILLE” printing in white on inner bezel. The time is displayed only by stainless steel hour and minute hands, which are engineered cutting. On the crystal case back, you can see the back of the skull. Although the movement is 21 jeweled automatic, it is skeletonized and abandoned a lot of structures, the movement itself only has four brackets to support the central working parts. I though that is the reason why it is so expensive, the watch master must spend a lot of time to modify the original movement.
