It is the dream of many people to travel around the world and travel in all directions. Some are already on the road, and some are about to leave. No matter if you are in the southern hemisphere or the northern hemisphere, you may have been basking in the sun on an island on the equator in the previous second, and you have already watched the aurora in the Arctic Circle to make a wish the next second. A watch that can bring you accurate time around the world becomes an important companion for you to travel around the Quartet. With so many watches around the world, which one is unique? Today, let’s take a look at how this RM 58-01 from Richard Mille (Richard Mille) has shaped the world time watch that belongs to the brand style. (Model: RM 58-01)
The design inspiration for this RM 58-01 is actually inspired by the brand’s best friend FIA FIA Chairman Jean Todt. For work reasons, Jean Todd often needs to travel around the world. At this time, he very much needed a watch that could grasp the time in different time zones, telling him accurate time information. Richard Mille has designed a watch exclusively for time travelers based on this original intention.

For general world time and dual time zone watches, some need to change the time zone manually to obtain accurate time information. In order to bring more convenience to users, RM
58-01 does not have any buttons for changing the time zone. Instead, you can change the time zone by rotating the bezel counterclockwise to adjust the time more quickly. After arriving at a new city, simply rotate the city name to the 12 o’clock position, and the time on the inner circle will automatically define the local and 23 other cities. The black and white discs clearly indicate the day and night time, and automatically show the change of day and night with time. In other words, this watch can simultaneously see the time information of 24 regions in the world, including Beijing, China.

The case diameter of the RM 58-01 is 50 mm, which to many people sounds like a large diameter. But Richard Mill always has a way to make this watch more suitable for people to wear, both in weight and design. The case with a diameter of 50 mm is made of red gold, and the titanium bezel and bottom cover have a very strong sense of layer. The combination of titanium and red gold materials not only makes the appearance of this watch more three-dimensional, but also reduces the weight of the watch to a certain extent.

The RM 58-01 adopts the brand’s usual ‘wheel’ design style, with a polished crown and a soft outer ring. The watch crown has the sense of sight of racing tires, and the adjustment of the watch is completed by twisting the crown and the bezel, giving a different operating experience, which is not interesting.

The materials of red gold and titanium are perfectly blended. In fact, this is not the first time the brand has adopted such a design.
