Old school.. and proud of it πŸ˜‰ 

In the middle of the Richard Mille technological storm ever pushing for technical advancement with new material and sci-fi movements and ever striving to introduce more complex and exquisite cases and dials designs... please let us have a moment and go back to the bare essential, the basic where it all started. 

100m water resistance + shock proof=a real sport watch. 

This is one of my all time favourite RM. 

Thank you.

Jen, this is an amazing looking RM and I agree with you the case shape and design are quite beautiful...a true classic

I think Hublot tried to imitate this case design if I am not mistaking (the spirit of big bang?) but this RM will stand the test of time!

yes you right

Hublot have with the spirit of big bang a RM wannabe. My complain about Hublot are the busy dials, searching hands is annoying. Look at a RM, it’s always no problem to see the time at a glance.

I bow the tread to Hublot a bit. Jean Claudes intention with Hublot was and is, to position Hublot as a luxury Swatch. Looking at many Hublots, the colors, forms, it reminds a lot of Swatch. The Swatch for adults ...

Yes! I love the swatch β€œjelly” collection!

The only Hublot I bought resemblance of the jelly concept (transparent)

Thank you! πŸ₯‚

Yes the Spirit of Big Bang does remind me of a shadow or RM.. I however do own a Hublot 😬 ... one only πŸ₯‚ Jen

Love it! Incredible watch!

I have literally been having RM dreams lately. 2021 may be the time to consolidate and pull the trigger. Agree on the RM005, the water resistance is a major selling point compared to more recent offerings. However, an RM030 speaks to me from a technical l... 

Thank you πŸ₯‚ [nt]

I appreciate the new case materials, but this one is a classic for many of us.

I wonder what the modern RM collector would make of this watch?

Jay thank you for chiming in ..

 By: janef : October 22nd, 2020-01:48
I own RM055, RM030, RM52-01, RM63-01, RM016, RM11 and RM33 .. in all honesty, I love the RM005 as a daily watch. I am currently seeking for a RM002 or RM003 ie similar size as the 005. I love smaller watches lately.. they are so easy to wear and no hassle... 

The size (relative thinness too) is the reason I always like the older RMs.

 By: Jay (Eire) : October 22nd, 2020-06:23
These days the 67-02 is appealing to be precisely for that same reason, the size. And the case material and lightness of this reference too. But your 005 is a classic, enjoy it.

Completely agree

The WR on certain references doesn't make a lot of sense, you have a perfect example here of a great daily piece. I'd love to see a photo of your 052-01, I have tried to track one down for a colleague won had his eye on the reference but they are hard to ...

Looking forward to your next combo buddy πŸ₯‚

Can’t beat this one

Well I’m biased but just maybe... ...  


 By: grahamhar : October 23rd, 2020-14:52
I think the Velcro straps should be the standard

Totally agree!

 By: janef : March 15th, 2021-12:34
The original design is timeless. I own larger modern RMs but these early originals sizes are a class of its own. Watch collectors n non watch enthusiasts friends all complimented how good it looks. Market demands on these early RMs has shot through the ro... 

Only have 1 RM

And happy with it I wanted to add 67-02 but prices now are crazy. ...  

Great piece!
