Today we are going to talk about one of my favourite Richard Mille editions and that is Black Toro 035.Fully admitted to the tennis legend Rafael Nada, wearing his mark name Black Toro.This beautiful machine hit the market last year and comes in two variations, black ceramic and rose gold, in limited edition of 50 pieces only.
Created to withstand the extreme conditions of long hush tennis play with curved shape and light weight this time piece is the right thing for every sportsman with style. The skeletonise movement weights only 4.3 grams, inserted into black ceramic or rose gold case attracts the eye of everyone. The top and bottom bezels of the black option are made of fine black TZP ceramic with matte effect, considered to be one of the most difficult cases to produce today.
The see-through sapphire crystal from both sides back and front shows the fine set up, the base plate is made of, sandblasted grade 5 titanium and each locking section is polished by hand. The screws are bevelled and polished and the pivots burnished.The RMUL1 movement gives a power reserve of 55 hours.
Looking at first site at this master piece the contrast of black and grey with gold elements lives impression of a watch which is obviously made with lot’s of style. The grey cogs and spindles of the movement are standing out up against the matt black ceramic case. The 18K red gold side details and hands are giving the spark to make this time machine even more remarkable. Another very specific detail is the Black Toro crown crafted from NTPT Carbon, with buckle made of titanium with a black DLC finish.
The RMUL1 skeletonized manual wind movement looks fantastic even when is fitted into the Gold Toro case with matte effect. Here the bridges and the main plate are crafted from grade 5 titanium, the same material of which the iconic spline screws are made of.
The watch comes with a sticker price of $145.500 for the Black Toro option,
and $169.500 for the Gold Toro. Unfortunately this offer comes as a limited edition of only 50 master pieces, only for the Americas.
