The Richard Mille sponsored competition features 700 sailors in 71 teams racing to win in various categories. The regatta located in the Caribbean Sea will last six days with the overall winner in the Maxi category being awarded a titanium RM 028 diving watch.
The new RM032 watch, presented during the event, is a highly technical creatio n which was designed to withstand pressures of 30 atmospheres (300 metres). The Voiles de Saint Barth limited edition in titanium which features a two-tone combination of Caribbean blue and white quartz will be one of just 120 timepieces produced. Other elements of the watch include a grade 5 titanium case middle and the seal of Les Voiles de Saint Barth Richard Mille on the back.
