The oversized Arabic numeral hour markers are placed right on the protective sapphire crystal and asides the central time display, Richard Mille RM 016 Titalyt features a small date-display located at 7 o’clock position. The original architecture of this timepiece is furthermore completed by a classy black leather strap.

        A sophisticated horological novelty of 2009, Richard Mille RM 016 Titalyt Watch asserts once more the watchmaker’s creativity and ingenuity and will surely be a coveted collectable item in spite of its rather exclusive price tag of $60,000.00
