With the beautiful Saint Barth island as the backdrop, the third annual Les Voiles de Saint Barth went underway last week. Already a premiere regatta in the Caribbean region, the sailing event saw some 65 vessels, everything from Maxi-Yachts, IRC 52 Class, to Multihulls, and more categories, all for a shot at glory. For skippers of the Maxi Yachts class however, pride wasn't the only thing at stake. There was also this, the Richard Mille RM 028 Voiles de Saint Barth Automatic Diver's Watch. By a meticulous incorporation of elements from a traditional diver's watch to its signature skeletonized construct, Richard Mille's new RM 028 was able to meet the stringent ISO 6425 standard for diver's watch. Measured at 47 mm in diameter, the RM 028 is water resistant to 300 meters, thanks to an assembly of triple bezel and 22 screws. Driven by a skeletonized automatic movement with a variable geometry rotor, one that alters winding function to the user's activity and a design uniquely Richard Mille's. Quipped with a vibrant yellow rubber band, as well as matching crown and bezel indexes, the very first Richard Mille RM 028 Voiles de Saint Barth was presented to skipper George David for the best overall performance in the Maxi Yachts class.
