Richard Mille RM 11-03
This limited edition release of the RM 11-03 is made from Carbon TPT that results in an extremely resistant and lightweight case that can tackle even the harshest environments. A completely skeletonized tonneau-shaped fiat makes for a visually bold statement. richardmille.com
