Known for their sports-specific and easily over-the-top luxury watches, the Swiss watchmaker and Blake, also known as “The Beast,” have now come together to build a timepiece exclusively for his unique breed of man: one that is not only designed for a sprinter, but one who is left-handed. Called the RM 59-01, this watch’s face was built asymmetrically out of lightweight composite as to be both aerodynamic and low-profile. Inside, its handwound tourbillion movement is made to take the G-forces that come with riding on the arm of an Olympic sprinter, which is covered by 3 Jamaican yellow and green “Beast bridges” made to look like a claw and match the rest of the piece. Available now, the RM 59-01 is imited to only 50-pieces and can be yours if you have a spare $620,000. Too bad it won’t have you running any faster.richard mille tourbillon rm 59 01 yohan blake 01 Richard Mille Tourbillon RM 59 01 Yohan Blake
