The Watch: Richard Mille Tourbillon G-Sensor Bubba Watson,
This watch belongs to a limited edition of 50 pieces.
Based in Les Breuleux, Switzerland, Richard Mille is a Swiss luxury watch company established by Dominique Guenat and Richard Mille in 2001. American golfer Bubba Watson, partner for Richard Mille since 2010, is celebrated for his self-taught skills in golf. The 44-year-old golf wizard has carved his niche as one of the best players of his generation.
The RM 38-01 manual winding Tourbillon G-Sensor with its tripartite tonneau-shaped case has the dimensions, 42.70 x 49.94 x 16.15 mm. The matte green front and back bezels are created from TZP-G, a zirconia-based ceramic material. They are complemented by a central caseband made from Grade 5 titanium and moulded with white rubber. Boasting a fully skeletonised dial with contrasting white flange with a green minute track, the layout features a G-Sensor located at the 12 o'clock position. This device registers the number of G-forces created by a golfer during swings and records these on the dial at 12 o'clock. RM 38-01 can record acceleration worth up to 20-G's. Now, as per Richard Mille, this is a very important piece of information for professional golfers, such as Bubba Watson, who is known to hit the ball at over 310 kilometres per hour. One can reset the sensor back to zero for the next swing by pressing the aerodynamically formed pusher at 9:00. The tourbillon movement offers hours, minutes and a G-force indicator. It has a power reserve of 48 hours, when fully wound. There is a vented strap in green rubber. Water resistance is up to 50 metres.
