Richard Mille has al­ways had a pen­chant for work­ing with var­i­ous ath­letes, cre­at­ing time­pieces that are stylish yet func­tional for var­i­ous ath­letic pur­suits. This year sees a col­lab­o­ra­tion with a sport that is noth­ing if not el­e­gant. To­gether world-renowned polo player Pablo Mac Donough, Richard Mille presents The RM 53-01 Tour­bil­lon Pablo Mac Donough. What im­me­di­ately catches the eyes is the Car­bon TPT case lam­i­nated over sap­phire glass. This tough ex­te­rior pro­vides shock re­sis­tance, a cru­cial el­e­ment for a time­piece to be worn dur­ing the high im­pact sport.

The watch­maker de­vised a cable-sus­pended move­ment to com­bat shock. Two base­plates are used to iso­late the dif­fer­ent parts of the move­ment to achieve this. The piece is fit­ted with an eye-catch­ing blue per­fo­rated rub­ber strap. In­spi­ra­tions from the au­to­mo­tive world have led to yet an­other Roger Dubuis time­piece. The Ex­cal­ibur Aven­ta­dor S Blue takes the ag­gres­sive and ath­letic per­son­al­ity of the Lam­borgh­ini su­per­car and turns it into a rag­ing time­keep­ing ma­chine. Tak­ing on the same C-SMC car­bon that's used in Lam­borgh­ini's cars, the black case is ac­cented with Nep­tune blue mark­ers around the bezel. A match­ing leather strap with a rub­ber un­der­side, to­gether with the red top­stitch­ing, gives the Aven­ta­dor S Blue its sporty ap­peal. Roger Dubuis' iconic skele­ton move­ment is found proudly spread across the dial. While the tour­bil­lon dom­i­nates the cen­tre of at­ten­tion, the jump­ing sec­onds is also a wel­come new fea­ture in the Ex­cal­ibur.
