As a special one-off piece Richard Mille is making this RM 055 JC watch for charity. It will be auctioned off on September 14th in Beijing as part of the brand's continual push to capture more of the Chinese market. Who better than to do it with Jackie Chan? The watch will officially be called The RM 055 JC Jackie Chan's Dragons' Heart Foundation. I wanna little dragon's heart in my life, I hear it is really tasty with BBQ sauce.
Chan has worked with watch brands before. I believe there was something with Piaget, and here I discussed a limited edition IWC watch that he worked on as well. This one-off piece has the logo of the Dragon's Heart Foundation on the dial, which has been sorta of integrated with the design of the hands. The colors are nice, and you can still see much of the watch underneath. The RM 055 has a tourbillon based manually-wound movement with the time, power reserve indicator, and torque indicator. A cool piece, and it is up to you to decide whether or not the colorful graphics on the dial are for you or not. Well, Richard Mille really only needs to convince one person.
The 48.18mm tall by 39.70mm wide watch will be done in 18k white gold with a white rubber strap matched to the tonneau style case. Again, the watch will be auctioned off in Beijing on September 14th, but I am not sure where. UPDATE: The Richard Mille RM 055 JC watch went for $860,000 at auction.
