ARGENTINE OPEN POLO TOURNAMENT

ARGENTINE OPEN POLO TOURNAMENT: AN 8TH VICTORY FOR PABLO MAC DONOUGH!

La Dolfina, led by Adolfo Cambiaso, beat arch-rival Ellerstina with a score of 14 to 13 at the close of the thoroughly electrifying final of the Argentine Open. It was a magnificent victory for the team, and for the most daring of our partners, Pablo Mac Donough, who held aloft the trophy of the prestigious Argentine Open for an 8th time in his career.

This 124th edition of the event, held at the Campo Argentino de Polo, known as ‘the Cathedral of Polo’, in the Palermo district of Buenos Aires, pitted against each other the two greatest polo teams of today, before a public that turned out in droves to attend the match. The atmosphere was charged, to say the least! As usual, Pablo wore his RM 053 Tourbillon during play, a wristwatch remarkable for its titanium carbide armour specifically designed to withstand the extreme impacts inevitable in polo.

Down 3-1 in the first chukka, La Dolfina surged back during the second, thanks to goals by Cambiaso and Mac Donough. The score was then neck-and-neck until the fourth chukka, when Pablo’s team opened a handsome four-goal lead, for a score of 13-9. Ellerstina nonetheless returned the charge, marking 4 consecutive points and pushing the game into overtime. Taking advantage of an air shot by Polito Pieres, La Dolfina regained possession of the ball. A long pass by Adolfo Cambiaso to Juan Martín Nero allowed the latter to score, ending the match, which has been hailed as historic.

Crowned Argentina’s champions for the 11th time, La Dolfina also won the five previous editions of the tournament. Pablo won the Fair Play tournament award (for the fewest fouls).

This was the public’s last opportunity to see Pablo play wearing his RM 053, as Richard Mille has developed an all-new polo calibre with the Argentinian player, also driven by a tourbillon mechanism, but even more sturdy, thanks to an unprecedented technology. This latest watch will be unveiled at the Salon International de la Haute Horlogerie 2018.

3. Richard Mille – Limited Edition

RM

RM 055 YAS MARINA CIRCUIT

To epitomize the successful and long-lasting partnership with Yas Marina Circuit, Richard Mille has created the RM 055 Yas Marina Circuit watch, a limited edition of 50 pieces exclusively for the UAE.

Richard Mille pays tribute to the circuit by placing the YMC logo on the sapphire case-back. The mechanical movement of the RM 055 YMC in grade 5 titanium displays extreme skeletonization, with a PVD and Titalyt® treated baseplate and bridges. This combination provides the whole structure with optimum rigidity and excellent surface flatness and finish, essential aspects for the perfect functioning of the gear train. The caliber RMUL2 is thus capable of withstanding accelerations of over 500-G’s.

 

RMW

 

The RM 055 YMC is a highly technical creation that is innovative, sporting and hand-finished in the finest watchmaking traditions. The piece is exclusively available at Richard Mille Boutiques in the Dubai Mall and Galleria Mall in Abu Dhabi.
