Richard Mille To Sponsor St. Barth Regatta

By Pardhasaradhi Gonuguntla

St. Barth – Reported by Elite Traveler, the Private Jet Lifestyle Magazine

Richard Mille reinforces his presence on the seas by signing title sponsorship to St. Barth’s new international sailing regatta, Les Voiles de Saint Barth.

The world’s most beautiful sailing yachts, ranging from classic sail boats to super yachts and multi-hull racers, will convene in St. Barth for a week of competition and conviviality. Each day, participants will compete on courses that surround this Caribbean island. This new regatta is totally in line with the long maritime tradition of St. Barth, where nautical events have always been popular.

Richard Mille’s sponsorship of Les Voiles de St. Barth strengthens the brand presence in the nautical world, a realm that has already served as inspiration within the watch range. In 2009, Richard Mille introduced his first diver’s watch, the RM 025, an extremely technical tourbillon, water resistant to 300 meters with a carbon nanofiber base plate. One year on, he reveals his second diver’s watch, the RM 028 automatic, whose dimensions are slightly smaller than the RM 025. It features a rotor with adjustable geometry, a Richard Mille exclusivity. Previously, in 2006 and 2007, Richard Mille introduced the RM 014 and RM 015 tourbillon with yacht themes.

Entirely hand-built and finished in the Swiss watch making tradition, Richard Mille watches claim an extremely technical and high performance conception. Their design is inspired by innovations found in such sectors as aerospace, Formula One and competition yachts. These inspirations become reality in the application of high tech materials-– totally original in watch making.
