New Richard Mille Sapphire Crystal Watch Worth $1.65 Million

The expression “time is money” just got interesting. After presenting remarkable limited series of watches, such as the Winter Olympics 2010 watch, famous brand Richard Mille  launches a new, but not less interesting edition of 5 watches entitled RM 56 Felipe Massa SAPPHIRE, each with a price tag of $1.65 Million.

Even though the watches produced by Richard Mille are known to pay tribute to elegance and luxury, not many people expected a design that features the entire casing carved into a piece of sapphire crystal rock. This makes the entire process of production interesting and, according to official data, quite laborious. Professionals at Richard Mille stated that it takes 1,000 hours to machine the case, another 430 hours to grind and further 350 for the finishing touches!

One could say all this effort is well worth it. The end result is intricate, stylish and absorbing. So much so, that telling time could be a bit more difficult than when dealing with a common watch, as the user’s attention is likely to be drawn by the impressive exposed mechanical system. The watch is said to be reflective and scratch resistant. The Richard Mille logo is present on the back, as a reassurance of quality and opulence.
