Charles Leclerc and Carlos Sainz sport the new world’s thinnest mechanical watch.
After recently making its world-renowned debut, the new Richard Mille RM UP-01 Ferrari sent shock waves throughout the watch world. The ultra-think exclusive example officially took the throne as the world’s thinnest mechanical watch, measuring a width of 1.75mm. Being a collaboration piece as its Official Partnership with Ferrari, Richard Mille knew the perfect two racing drivers to experience the $1.888 million racing machine for the wrist. Scuderia Ferrari F1 team drivers Charles Leclerc and Carlos Sainz were among the few lucky individuals to receive the RM UP-01 Ferrari, putting its new lightweight design and complex movement to the test on motorsports’ biggest stage.
Incorporating aspects of Formula One design and technology, Richard Mille’s newest release focuses on showcasing the shared values of each brand’s success. Charles Leclerc expresses his love for the RM UP-01 by describing it as “instantly recognizable”, while teammate Carlos Sainz enjoys its optimal and ergonomic case shape. The watch release proves to be one of the most followed of the year, leaving us all wondering which individuals are willing to shell out the funds for its impressive seven-figure price tag. Until then, we will enjoy the new Richard Mille RM UP-01 from a distance as the two Scuderia Ferrari F1 drivers will wear the piece during the 2022 Formula One season.
