Richard Mille RM 50-02 ACJ Tour­bil­lon Split Sec­onds Chronograph Watch For Air­bus Cor­po­rate Jets Hands-On

THE MAN Magazine Cambodia - - Basel Report -

De­buted at SIHH 2016 is this new and truly awe­some (in both price and de­sign) avi­a­tion watch from Richard Mille de­signed in col­lab­o­ra­tion with Air­bus’ pri­vate jet divi­sion. ACJ stands for ”Air­bus Cor­po­rate Jets” and this arm of the French air­plane com­pany pro­duces jet­lin­ers for usu­ally 20-50 pas­sen­gers for the ul­tra-wealthy, cor­po­ra­tions, or even gov­ern­ments. ACJ chose to part­ner with Richard Mille, and this rather in­ter­est­ing Richard Mille RM 50-02 ACJ Tour­bil­lon Split Sec­onds Chronograph watch is the re­sult. Ac­cord­ing to Richard Mille and ACJ, the com­pa­nies spent about two years work­ing on the Richard Mille RM 50-02 ACJ Tour­bil­lon Split Sec­onds Chronograph lim­ited edi­tion watch. What makes the watch so unique are the many Air­bus plane-in­spired de­sign el­e­ments. I know that some peo­ple will no doubt dis­like this watch, just as all Richard Mille time­pieces have their friends and foes. I will ad­mit that on pa­per, noth­ing about the de­sign of this watch works. The col­ors, de­sign in­spi­ra­tions, and over­all ex­pla­na­tion of the shape makes the watch sound in­sane to silly, but in per­son and on the wrist, it to­tally works. I can say that the present aBlog­toWatch team fell in love with the Richard Mille RM 50-02 ACJ Tour­bil­lon Split Sec­onds Chronograph at first sight. Not that it mat­ters, since the $1,000,000-plus watch is not likely to ever have a per­ma­nent place on our wrists. I should also men­tion that the Richard Mille RM 50-02 ACJ Tour­bil­lon Split Sec­onds Chronograph is one of those watches that looks much bet­ter in per­son than in its mar­ket­ing pic­tures (which is, iron­i­cally, usu­ally the other way around).
