Today, Richard Mille Watches Copy Replica debuts their first watch aimed squarely at the world of biking (it even includes a bike when you purchase it). It’s the RM 70-01 Tourbillon Alain Prost, and with its interesting “swoosh” event design, seems to have answered the question of “what should Richard Mille made one of those handheld tally counters” — like the ones frequently used by event doorway guys to count the number of people attending. It’ll be the ritzy modern-looking “super watch” brand’s latest toy to receive its fans talking about the brand, in addition to an intriguing new look by the new to the area of cycling.This is going to be one of these bizarre and very rare Richard Mille watches everyone spends a few months asking why Richard Mille decided to make 30 of them, and whether or not the brand is losing their mind. In a couple of years from now, people will be remarking on the genius of the opinion, all but forgetting their initial cynical reaction to this. I can not imagine how the whole concept of the watch didn’t begin as the product of a phone call between Richard Mille and Alain Prost, with one of them bringing up, “just how do we make a watch for when you’re on a bicycle. Why is there no Richard Mille tourbillon for biking?”
