Hands-on: The Thinnest Watch in the World

Wei got his hands on the USD 1.88 million, 150-piece limited edition Richard Mille UP-01 Ferrari.

This ultra-thin timepiece, which broke the record for world’s thinnest watch, might be 1.75mm thin, but it can withstand accelerations of over 5,000 g’s and packs 45 hours of power reserve.

It features a baseplate and bridges crafted of grade 5 titanium, a biocompatible, rigid and corrosion-resistant alloy, and is the result of numerous prototypes and more than 6,000 hours of development and laboratory testing.
