Size: gent Richard Mille Bubba Watson Watch, limited and numbered edition of 38 pieces, tonneau-shaped magnisum WE54 case (48mm length x 39.7mm width x 12.8mm thickness) with transparent caseback, eight titanium spline screws hold together the case for better control of torque during assembly, skeletonized dial with luminous index markers and hands, tourbillon carriage at 6 o’clock, 19 jewel calibre #RM038 manual-winding movement, 48 hour power reserve, scratch resistant sapphire crystal, water resistant to 50 meters.The RM 038 is made of an extremely strong and light alloy called magnesium WE 54. The tourbillon movement has been developed for a particular emphasis on shock protection (a good thing if playing golf with it).Bubba Watson is a professional golfer and Richard Mille ambassador. He won the US Masters Tournament in 2012 and is one of the longest drivers on the PGA Tour.Just in time for SIHH 2011, Richard Mille signed a new ambassador to the brand. Starting in 2008, they signed Formula 1 race car driver Felipe Massa, then last year they signed pro tennis player Rafael Nadal, and now, they have signed pro golfer Bubba Watson. For Felipe Massa and Rafael Nadal, a special timepiece was created by Richard Mille, and the same is true for Bubba Watson. And just like Rafael and Felipe, Bubba will wear a special edition Richard Mille timepiece during all of his professional competitions. The new RM 038 Tourbillon Bubba Watson wristwatch has been designed to resist the enormous shocks that occur from the impact of a golf club striking a ball. This shock is transferred from the golf club to the wearer’s arms and then to the timepiece. So the main challenge was to dampen the negative effects of the impact, so as to protect the movement. Specifically, the RM 038 features two cross braces that allow the delicate tourbillon movement to operate properly, even with the constant impacts and shocks that occur during an 18-hole game of golf.

Richard Mille Watches Replica American golfer Bubba Watson, partner for Richard Mille since 2010, stands out from the crowd with his unique physique, personality and self-taught skills in golf.He epitomizes the high performance and precision of human ability as an instrument for sports. Only 35 years old, he is already leaving his mark as one of the best players of his generation with one of the most powerful drives, establishing him consistently as the longest hitter on the PGA tour since 2006, followed by his first 1st US PGA Tour event in 2010.After the success of the limited RM 038 Golfer’s Tourbillon released in 2011, Richard Mille has undertaken the development of yet another specific tourbillon watch for Bubba Watson with added functionality to complement his powerful drives on the course.The result is the RM 38-01 Bubba Watson, a timepiece that combines a patented G-sensor with a tourbillon mechanism, thus providing new insights for golfers during their game.The mechanical G-sensor, a Richard Mille world first containing more than 50 moving parts within a mere 17mm, allows the user to see the accumulated motion of their swing in G’s. The sensor, placed under 12 o’clock, is able to record the force generated by a golfer’s swing, specifically during the last segment. In reality this means that the RM 38-01 can record up to 20-G’s of acceleration, a very important insight for golfers such as Bubba Watson, renowned for his ability to hit a ball at more than 310 kilometers per hour. Resetting the sensor back to zero for the following swing is done by simply pressing the aerodynamically formed pusher at 9:00 once.

Audemar Piguet Watches replica The G-sensor mechanism is integrated into the heart of a manual winding tourbillon movement with circa 48 hours of power reserve. The movement is a technological marvel with its highly skeletonized, asymmetrical flying bridges and plates machined from grade 5 titanium with PVD treatment. This choice of materials and finish ensure rigidity, flatness and resistance for all the moving parts, simultaneously allowing the movement to effortlessly express its architectural aspirations of air and form.On looking at the RM 38-01 Bubba Watson, one’s attention is immediately drawn to the unique green case – bubba’s favorite color – which upon closer examination again demonstrates the mastery and insight of Richard Mille in the revolutionary application of industrial materials for 21st century watchmaking.In this manner the front and back bezels of the RM 38-01 are created in TZP-G, a ceramic class of material based on microscopic tubes of alumina oxide powder injected with green colorant at a pressure of 2,000 bars. This is followed by a long and difficult machining and grinding process with diamond tooling in order to obtain the exact complex curves and arcs typical of Richard Mille’s designs. The result is a material that offers 20 – 30% more stiffness in comparison to traditional ceramics. In the last stage, the material is then delicately worked in order to create an attractive matt surface finish and further complemented with a central caseband in grade 5 titanium molded with white rubber, thus providing comfort and lightness for the user under all conditions.
