The sixth edition of the Caribbean’s finest sailing race, Voiles de Saint Barth 2015 – an event a few have ever heard of, let alone been apart of – deserves an equally exclusive timepiece.
Being that they are one of the principal partners of the event since it first began, Richard Mille has just unveiled their RM 60-01 Regatta Flyback. Decked out in the competition colors from the event, the 60-01 is driven by an automatic flyback chronograph caliber in grade 5 titanium that lends the watch its name. In addition to running local time, the timepiece has a 3D rotating bezel that features a wind rose and a graduate 360-degree 24-hour disk, which work with the hour hand to produce compass points in both hemispheres without any other calculations. A countdown timer, UTC functions, and a patented locking crown finish the design in a fashion fitting of one of the world’s most prestigious yachting battles. The RM 60-01 will be limited to just 100 pieces and will be made available during the competition next week.
