The pounding hooves, gasping crowds and expert athleticism of the Polo field is what makes the sport so thrilling, but it’s imperative that for a match to run smoothly, an excellent timekeeper keeps close watch over every second. Fortunately for the St. Tropez Polo Club, Richard Mille has recently been named official timekeeper and sponsor.
Who is Richard Mille?
Though only in business for a bit over a decade, Richard Mille and his eponymous brand of watches are one of the most revered and beloved in the luxury accessory world. Before you excitedly jot down the name as a possible holiday or birthday gift for a significant other, it’s worth noting that the price of these exceptional pieces can run $300,000 and up.
In common fashion, once named sponsor and official timekeeper, Mille created a line of limited edition watches that exemplify the vision and experience of playing on a Polo field. You may or may not be able to afford such a sophisticated piece, but St. Tropez Polo player and friend of Richard Mille Pablo Mac Donough routinely wears his sturdy yet stylish RM 053 Tourbillon, which was designed specifically for the rigors of the game.
A History of Friendship
This isn’t Mille’s first foray into Polo playing, or sports in general. He started his interest in 2011, with Pablo Mac Donough, and continued taking an interest. This year, players will compete in over 10 international tournaments for the chance to win the “Richard Mille Cup.”
Richard Mille Boca Raton
The beautiful RM 011 Polo de St. Tropez watch series may only be available in European boutiques, but there are numerous high quality Richard Mille watches available all over the world, including Boca Raton. These are some of the most technologically advanced watches ever made, and the modern skeleton case style is especially popular.
Whatever model catches your eye, whether it’s the RM 006 or RM 056, you can rest assured the timepiece will last for generations, and the St. Tropez Polo team will have spot on timing.
