Patek Philippe Moon phase in 18k Rose Gold — reference 5712R
With the oblong, soft shape of the bezel, the 40 mm porthole-shaped rose gold case and the dial with a ribbed surface, the Nautilus bears the signature style of its designer, the same Gerald Genta who authored the Royal Oak. It’s almost cyberpunk-ish lines embody, since 1976, one of the main references of the luxury sports niche. And even today, 40 years later, it feels always so contemporary, and perfect to accompany the most exigent wearers through their daily life.
The Nautilus mounts an automatic 240 PS IRM C LU caliber, visible through a sapphire glass back, and features an indicator of the power reserve and sundials for the small seconds and the moon phase. The movement, based on an eccentric micro-rotor in red gold, beats at 21.600 BPH and offers a power reserve of 48 hours.
The brownish-black dial, with a feature guilloche texture in horizontal bands, is subtly enriched by the applied hour markers in yellow gold. The supple black crocodile wristband features a deployment clasp in rose gold.
This timepiece is so elegant that it blows you away with its sheer class and its extremely balanced mix of contemporary elements and vintage inspirations. It is definitely a keeper.
And here we come to the fourth and — let us say it — most exclusive part of Mr. Hart’s collection: Richard Mille. He shows a real love of Richard Mille and has been seen wearing at least five different models. Given the fact that they start from the best part of the $85,000 upwards that show insane Kevin Hart Net worth, you can understand the size of the investment Kevin Hart is carefully injecting into his collection.
One of his main assets is the Richard Mille RM 11–01 “Roberto Mancini”, created by the Maison for the exclusive needs of the worldwide-famous Italian football coach.
But Mr. Hart has shown us other beauties, like a white Richard Mille RM035 Gold Toro and a Limited Edition (of only 50) of Richard Mile’s manually wound RM 035 Americas Rafael Nadal.
Richard Mille RM 035 “Gold Toro”
Richard Mille watches are like the F1 of horology and are created to break the rules, achieving results never thought before.
As such, for the past 7 years Richard Mille has been cooperating with the Spanish tennis star Rafael Nadal, creating in the meanwhile a line of awe-inspiring pieces such as insanely costly tour billons, as well as more affordable — but still groundbreaking — manual wound watches. So, after Nadal’s victory at Roland Garros, making him the only man to win a single Grand Slam tournament 10 times, Richard Mille has presented two Limited Editions to celebrate him, “El Toro” — ‘The Bull’ — from Manacor in Mallorca.
The Gold Toro, created in only 50 exemplars, and available exclusively in the American boutiques of the brand, features a satin-finished 18K red gold tonneau-shaped case. This same precious metal is also found in the crown, buckle, and hands of the timepiece. The watch proudly displays — as often happens in Richard Mille’s creations — it’s superbly finished skeletonized RMUL1 manual wound movement which offers a 55-hour power reserve.
As expected, the watch is pretty evident, measuring 48 mm x 39.70 mm x 12.25 mm, so do not try to hide it under the cuffs of your shirt.
But when you have such beauty around your wrist, who would want to hide it?
