Richard Mille RM 055 Bubba Watson and Richard Mille The Art of Time
The high quality and craftsmanship you can literally see are the two main qualities of the watch. The watch face and back are clearly visible, so you can see the inner workings of the tiny elements that make up the watch's moving parts. The process of displaying working parts and then enhancing those parts for better viewing is called skeletonization. A 2011 version of this watch used similar technology and was called the RM 038 Bubba Watson. It was this look that gave the watch the rugged texture that became very popular when the 038 was released.
The RM 055 Bubba Watson has a durable casing made of grade 5 titanium. You can feel the quality of the case when you run your finger across it. The polished but still rough look adds a different level of beauty to this watch. The watch is said to be able to withstand nearly 500 Gs of acceleration and can also withstand the shock of activities such as mountain climbing and hiking. The power reserve of this luxury watch holds up to 55 hours of energy, which means you'll run out of energy on any given day long before the watch runs.
Art of Time watches are not only manufactured to Richard Mille's high standards, they are also sold at the price of works of art that can only be seen at the best auctions. The cases used in the Art of Time collection are manufactured by a very special sapphire crystal technology. They are very beautiful, very durable, and take weeks to make. The factory used to manufacture these new cases is owned by Richard Mille and is uniquely equipped to meet the demands of the "Art of Time" collection. This is just another thing that sets Richard Mille apart from the competition.
The Richard Mille Art of Time series uses enhanced components to help users view the time. But the design and beauty of the watches make them stand out as works of art and timepieces. These sporty watches have an elegance that appeals to a wide range of people. Watches in the Time Art collection sell for up to 1 million euros. When people are willing to pay so much for a watch, the watch has earned the nickname "The Art of Time."
I must admit that my interest in golf has died down. I took a golf lesson once and just when I thought I was mastering my swing, it disappeared. It's all part of playing golf, my golf instructor explained. It doesn't fit my own impatient character.
If I try a sport or a hobby and I don't feel like I'm making rapid progress, I immediately drop it and move on.
Before interviewing Bubba, the prospect of asking him questions was a challenge I couldn't ignore. How do you interview a top athlete about a sport you know very little about? This will be fun and definitely a story I can retell to my grandkids one day.
Bubba played the Open at Royal Lytham and St. Annes, and I was interviewed at a nearby house.
A brief overview of BUBBA WATSON Bubba Watson was born on November 5, 1978 in Baghdad, Florida.
A physical giant at 6-foot-3, he hits the ball with prodigious power, putting him in the lead on the PGA Tour in driving distance, averaging 313.1 yards.
Bubba is a refreshing change from the average golfer on the PGA Tour. He was self-taught and eschewed the methods that many precocious children and aggressive parents used to achieve their dreams through their offspring instead.
Many golfers have been instructed for years to hold their clubs in a specific way, honing their swings through video analysis, not Bubba.
He wears an all-white outfit with pink details and uses a pink driver to support charity. "Helping these charities, and more importantly, helping families, may be more valuable than winning golf tournaments," Bubba says on his website. I suspect that's a mantra many sports coaches espouse.
Bubba has a down-to-earth persona, speaking of his humble origins from Baghdad, Florida. He openly expressed his emotions, burst into tears, celebrated the Masters victory and hugged his mother affectionately.
During the Masters, he landed his ball in the woods in a playoff against Louis Osterhuizen. The bushes were supposed to cost and thwart his ambitions. After such a ferocious shot, however, golf intelligence would suggest an imminent defeat, Bubba said: "It's just a crazy shot I see in my head". This is not one to follow convention.
So it's no surprise that he wears a very special watch - the Richard Mille RM 038.
