Inspired by Bubba Watson’s ‘lucky’ colour, the RM 38-02 is built around a baseplate in Carbon TPT®, which comprises many layers of parallel carbon filaments.
The colour is a nod to Bubba’s iconic Ping driver, and brings subtle touches of pink inside the movement. This colour is also present on the back of the calibre on a monumental micro-perforated bridge, echoing the pattern of Bubba’s driver.
A modern golf ball undergoes an acceleration of up to 50,000 g’s, the RM 38-02’s 9.9 mm thick calibre can withstand shocks of no less than 10,000 g’s. The engineers paid particular attention to its size, delivering both a strong architectural dimension and the compactness necessary for its shock resistance.
The case is made of a unique pink Quartz TPT®, white Quartz TPT® and Carbon TPT®. The association of different colours and materials without merging them was a real technical challenge.
The RM 38-02 Tourbillon Bubba Watson is the fourth watch of the collection bearing Bubba’s name. Produced in a numbered limited edition of 50 pieces, it is the watchmaking equivalent of a hole in one.
