Nothing beats doing hands-on reviews on Richard Mille timepieces. There's something about holding a Richard Mille watch and feeling that special vibe from it. This time, we bring you our hands-on review of this amazing timepiece with live images and the mandatory wristshots. The Richard Mille RM055 White Drive —exclusively available in North and South America— comes fitted with a fully black rubberized grade-5 titanium case, a black ceramic bezel and a very distinctive white flange. As a side note, all of the previous watches created with Bubba Watson feature stark white cases, bezels and straps. This watch, just like the Rafael Nadal RM27-01 lacks of a dial and the time can be easily read with its skeletonized hands with white tips and seconds hand with red tip — a very delicate and well-thought element that adds the right amount of contrast without being distracting.
As you can appreciate in the pictures, the decoration around the bridges on the skeletonized movement goes from dark brushed to shiny when the watch is exposed to direct light at the right angle. The watch comes fitted with the traditional Richard Mille crown with rubber ring that is very easy to use.
The beating heart inside the Richard Mille RM055 is the calibre
RMUL2 designed to withstand accelerations of over 500 Gs, allowing it to perform on the wrist of a golfer with a massive drive, like Bubba Watson's. The calibre is fully visible via the skeletonized front with no dial and the display case back —a real treat to the eyes. The movement is completely suspended and held to the case by four five-point star screws.
This amazing timepiece is fitted with a very comfortable rubber strap with horizontal perforations that is very comfortable and that molds perfectly to the wrist. The strap is fitted with the traditional Richard Mille double-folding clasp and the watch wears true to its size with unparalleled wrist presence.
