Hardcore cyclists are obsessed with hi-tech gear that allows them to achieve speeds that would get a car pulled over by the law. To keep them on time, Richard Mille offers the RM 70-01 Tourbillon Alain Proust, named after the driver with the most Formula One wins who now races bicycles. The eminently practical features include an easy-to-read dial, lightweight carbon housing, mechanical movement with 70-hour power reserve, a digital counter that tracks mileage and a rubber wrist strap that is impervious to sweat. The visible movement is designed to be worn on the right wrist, even if you prefer to don it on the left. A mere 30 will ever be made, which seems odd until you factor in the $815,000 pricetag. Yes, you could buy an investment home for less, but at least the watch comes with a racing bicycle, so suddenly it’s a great deal — if you can swing it; RichardMille.com.
