The title looks like a bunch of number. :)

Actually a couple of days ago I was fortunate to have the opportunity to 'play' with this watch, the Richard Mille RM005 Felipe Massa Limited Edition Titanium watch. That was a mouthful. The watch is not mine but belongs to a friend. 

Anyway, this is not a review but more of a photographic learning process (for me). I have to say that the watch is a very beautiful watch, well made and feels very very light on the wrist. It is a limited edition of 300 pieces and comes in at 45 x 37.8 mm. 

On with the photographs:

The watch. 

I just love the dial and the date display at the 7 o'clock position. The dial is rendered in the Brazilian Flag colours.

I also like the 'skeleton' like dial.

Not a safe queen, look at the scratches at the 6 o'clock position. I like the use of the 'Trox' like screw head around the bezel. Very utilitarian. 

Comes with a rubber strap.

The screw down crown. If I am not wrong, the RM0005 FM was the first RM to achieve the water resistant rating of 10 ATM. Look at the beautiful titanium 3 case design (bezel, mid case and case back).

The automatic movement, reference RM005-1, with hours, minutes, seconds and date complication. It also features an adjustable rotor geometry. Basically it adjust to the owners movement.

The case back with a display window. Well made and just beautiful.

Another view of the movement. 

Apologies for the many repeat photographs, but like I said, this is training shots. :)

Again the dial. 

And the case back.

A very well made and beautiful watch.
