Richard Mille A limited edition exclusive to the United Arab Emirates
The RM 055 Yas Marina Circuit pays tribute to Richard Mille's collaboration with Formula 1 Yas Marina Circuit.
Richard Mille is bringing out a limited edition of 50 pieces exclusive to the United Arab Emirates, as a tribute to the watchmaker’s collaboration with Abu Dhabi’s Yas Marina Circuit. For almost seven years now Richard Mille has been a partner and official timekeeper of the Formula 1 Yas Marina Circuit.
The RM 055 Yas Marina Circuit gives pride of place to the race track’s unique colours, which have become emblematic since the first Abu Dhabi Grand Prix took place in 2009. A highly distinctive turquoise blue, called “Yas Blue”, coats the rubber of the crown and the railway track framing the dial, which offers a spellbinding view of the movement. The YMC logo is engraved on the sapphire case back.

Its automatic movement, the calibre RMUL2, was designed to cope with acceleration of more than 500 G, and is skeletonised to the extreme, the open architecture showcasing the PVD and Titalyt® treated mainplate and bridges. The treatment guarantees optimum rigidity as well as providing ultra-smooth and flat surfaces, which are key to optimum functioning of the gear train. A variable inertia balance wheel ensures reliability under impact, and during assembly and dismantling, thus increasing the watch’s precision over the long term. The double-barrelled mechanism helps to optimise long-term torque stability and performance. Because stored energy is dispersed, pressure and friction on the gears, bearings and pivots is reduced, thus improving performance.

The distinctive construction of the RM 055 case meets the demanding requirements of sportsmen and racing drivers. The exclusive TPT® carbon used in the case is a signature of the Richard Mille collection. Its more than 600 layers of carbon fibres make it particularly rigid and resistant to impacts.
This marvel of engineering and sports styling is available only from the Richard Mille boutiques in the Dubai Mall and Galleria Mall in Abu Dhabi.
Richard Mille did not simply try to find his place in the watchmaking world – he carved one out for himself, constantly striving not to take anything for granted, and to make innovation and extreme technical prowess his driving forces.Find out more
