Richard Mille RM 50-02 ACJ Tourbillon Split Seconds Chronograph
Created in collaboration with Airbus Corporate Jets the RM 50-02 ACJ Tourbillon Split Seconds Chronograph continues Richard Mille’s tradition of being non-traditional. There are, obviously, plenty of airplane themes, including the dial that looks like the window of a passenger aircraft. Speaking of the dial, the clashing colors and visible movement parts might make all the distinct elements, such as the tourbillon and chronograph, hard to discern; but take a closer look and you’ll see that there’s a method to this madness. That being said, the RM 50-02 ACJ is not only a very limited edition watch but also very expensive at just US$1,050,000.
