Is this the ultimate preppers watch?

If you have close to a million dollar budget and are in the market for something a little very bonkers with one or two unique survival functions thrown in,

then Richard Mille’s RM25-01 Tourbillon Adventure watch developed in collaboration with Sylvester Stallone might be just the thing!

Tourbillon aside, the RM 25-01 Adventure boasts several previously unseen (on a wristwatch) innovations that are there to help get you out of any tight spots that you might find yourself in.

You know, in case of an economic meltdown, the zombie apocalypse or to assist you when you’re scaling the jungle gym at your local playground.

The RM 25-01 is fabricated from state-of-the-art Carbon TPT, an exclusive material with a unique damascene appearance.

Its remarkable surface displays extremely regular striations, as Carbon TPT is composed of many layers of parallel filaments obtained by dividing carbon fibers.

The case is water resistant to 100 meters, ensured by two Nitrile O-ring seals.

It is assembled with spline screws in Grade 5 Titanium and abrasion-resistant washers in 316L Stainless steel.

Special features of the RM 25-01 Adventure include: 2 interchangeable bezels so that it’s possible to swap out the bidirectional bezel for the compass bezel.

Made of Grade 5 Titanium, the compass is equipped with a bayonet mount. Its mirrored cover with a slot at 12 o’clock improves the accuracy of sighting with the compass needle.

Also machined from Carbon TPT, a plate can be fixed to the RM 25-01’s compass bezel for more precise orientating using a map.

Then there’s a torque-limiting crown. This added security system prevents accidental over-winding of the watch, which can cause damage to the winding stem or place extreme pressure on the barrel spring.

A Titanium-cased Spirit level makes it possible to hold the watch perfectly level—essential for ensuring the accuracy of sightings with the compass needle.

5 water purification capsule contained in a hermetically-sealed compartment in Carbon TPT are each capable of making a litre of any water safe to drink within 30 to 120 minutes, depending on the level of pollution.

Power comes from a manual winding tourbillon movement with 24-hour display, minutes and chronograph function, power reserve, torque and function indicators.

RM’s engineers spent several months of R&D reducing the weight and optimizing the caliber, especially the precision of time calculation over the long term.

This has allowed for a number of innovations, such as the design and manufacturing of several Titanium parts, such as the levers, which reduce inertia thus lower energy consumption by 50%.

MSRP is 983’000USD. Thoughts? Shouldn’t the RM 25-01 have been weaponized?!
