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.

Richard Mille is delighted to welcome Australian actress Margot Robbie to the circle of women who are partners of the brand. She is an inspiration to the current generation and the brand looks forward to creating a fascinating range of watches.

Born in Australia, Robbie grew up on the Gold Coast and eventually moved to Melbourne where she began acting professionally at the age of 17. She appeared on Neighbors, Australia’s longest-running television serial, from 2008-2010. In 2011, Robbie moved to the United States to pursue her career and was quickly cast in the critically-acclaimed series, Pan Am.

Robbie is perhaps best known for her breakout role in Martin Scorsese’s 2013 hit, The Wolf of Wall Street, in which she stars as the female lead opposite Leonardo DiCaprio. Her star-making performance in the film garnered praise from critics and audiences alike.

The Wolf of Wall Street paved the way for interesting and unique opportunities for Robbie including starring opposite Will Smith in Focus, a lead role in sci-fi thriller Z for Zachariah, starring as “Jane” in David Yates’ The Legend of Tarzan, as well as her coveted role as the iconic “Harley Quinn” in David Ayer’s Suicide Squad.

Robbie can be seen next in Simon Curtis’ Goodbye Christopher Robin alongside Domhnall Gleeson.
She recently wrapped production on Craig Gillespie’s I, Tonya, which she stars in as Tonya Harding, and served as a producer under her production company, LuckyChap Entertainment. Robbie will soon begin production on Josie Rourke’s Mary Queen of Scots in which she will star as “Queen Elizabeth” opposite Saoirse Ronan.

Not content to limit her involvement in film and television to acting, Margot launched her production company, LuckyChap Entertainment. Robbie currently has several films in development under the production banner including Bad Monkeys, Beautiful Things and Marian.

This partnership between Margot Robbie and Richard Mille complements the very contemporary spirit of the collection in which Margot will bring her creative energy and her own interpretation of femininity as she participates in the design of several models.    
”I am really excited to join the Richard Mille family, I have always admired the brand’s artistry and innovation. The watch we are working on embodies Richard Mille’s vision of horology; it’s beautiful, unique and modern. I can’t wait for everyone to see it.”

Richard Mille and Margot will create together a collection of which the proceeds will be donated to Youngcare. This foundation is committed to helping young Aussies with high-care needs live life with choice, independence and dignity.

Collaborating with an array of artists and masters in their disciplines allows Richard Mille to enrich its vision of what a masterpiece of watchmaking for the 21st century should look like, without losing sight of tradition and history.
