The RM 055 boutique edition is the newest edition of the popular RM 055 line of watches.
The RM 055 Boutique Edition is available only at select Richard Mille Boutiques in Europe and the Middle East. A limited edition of just 50 pieces, this watch has a bezel crafted out of TiC (shot-blasted titanium carbide). Titanium carbide consists of titanium and carbon, which combine to create an alloy with a hardness of 1450 Vickers. This, however, is not the first time RM has used the alloy. It was first used in the case of the Tourbillon RM 053 Pablo Mac Donough which debuted in 2012. The manual winding caliber RMUL2 is skeletonized, and, just like the case, is made of grade 5 titanium. The RM055 was originally designed in collaboration with Bubba Watson. With this in mind, the caliber RMUL2 is capable of withstanding accelerations of over 500-G’s. The watch will have a retail price of 105,000CHF (~$110,000USD)
