The RM011 Yellow Storm is 50-piece limited edition offered exclusively through Richard Mille boutiques in the Americas, starting with the Beverly Hills and Las Vegas locations. Though keepin with the general traits of Richard Mille’s RM011 series (an automatic flyback chronograph watch), this particular RM011 is cased in Mille’s super-cool NTPT carbon case. Loud and unmistakably Mille, the NTPT carbon case along with bright yellow strap (with titanium DLC buckle) and accents make the Yellow Storm a watch that will draw lots of attention to the wrist — just what many Mille wearers would like, I’d guess. I know I sure would love wearing a watch like this!
Some of the RM 011’s main features, which include major technical innovations, are its skeletonized automatic winding movement with adjustable rotor geometry (as I explain here); 60-minute countdown timer; 12-hour totalizer; annual calendar; and oversize date and month.
Retail price? $170,000 – which is the same price as the last RM-011 I featured, although that one — the “White Demon” — was cased in white ceramic.
