Would you buy a Richard Mille with your own money? The only people I see wearing one are sportspeople (being paid to wear them) and orange Lamborghini driving middle aged multimillionaires with questionable income

As someone with an engineering background who likes the technicality and the over-engineered aspect of it, if I had mountains of money that I could light on fire and not lose sleep, absolutely yes

For some people buying a RM is the equivalent of getting a g-shock. In that situation, yes. Otherwise, no.

If I had so much money that it makes no difference, I’d still get a G-Shock. Might get that solid gold one they made in limited edition.

Seeing the first version he had was what got me into watches. Learned so much since and developed this passion. A buddy from college was the definition of wealth and had a nadal watch. Was a machine of a watch

RM pushes the limits on material usage and watch making and time keeping engineering. They are the F1 equal in the watch world. Where Innovation and craft meet

These days, I’d find every available dollar I possibly could to buy as many as I possibly could at retail. Is an RM 11-04 worth 300k to me? Absolutely not, but if it’s worth 550k to someone else, you can bet that I’m getting a second mortgage on my house to buy the one at retail so I can make a cool 250k profit in a flip. Would RM ever sell me another watch again? No. Would they ever sell me that first one? Also no.

funny

You can say day and night about how RM is grossly over priced and not worth the money (and I agree) but there’s no way you can look at the 27-04 Tourbillon and not be amazed by it. It is by far my favorite skeleton watch I have ever seen and it would be on the must have wishlist for me if it could be had in a more realistic price. Honestly, the rest of RM’s watches I find pretty tacky and/or ugly though.

@WM I respect the hell out of that. And I’m not against bright and bold. But the color wheel exists for a reason 😂. Still, we all gotta do what makes us happy!

HELL no

Not at all, they don’t look good at all

Our employee satisfaction survey is tied to our performance goals. Meaning, if we rate management badly, we cannot meet 10% of our goals which in turn affects our bonuses and raises. We asked HR but they didn’t do anything about it. Is this normal? Is this legal? If not, what else can we do about it?

Help me decide which piece to get as my first luxury watch after this years promo. My brother has a strong relationship with an AD so my options are looking like green Omega seamaster, GS snowflake, GMT Batman. Obvi Batman is almost 2x the others but I’ll eventually have all 3 at some point in my life

Yea or Nay as a first luxury watch? Would love to see it in action if someone have it.
