RM011 In "Parker"
Taken with SS Note III Hand Set on my Cheapo Olevia TV.
A Panerai in Jason's "Transporter"
My eyes are always falling on people’s watch, noticeable on their types, brand…style…even on Movie.
“Parker”, a movie where Jason Statham played as Daniel Parmitt’s who wear a Clearly Iconic Watch design as a Richard Mille RM011 Felipe Massa. Obviously RM had paid a big lump sum for two Close ups in the entire movie.
Well, Parmitt’s Role as a Texan Rich man buying estate at Miami with help of Leslie (Jennifer Lopez) wearing such a Watch is a good choice… But Always I have a tough man as Jason in his movie… He should wear something like Panarai, Royal Oak Offshore or a Submariner…. Whereas RM011 should work better with Dicaprio Leonardo.
Silicon Nitride, applied on this RM011, is a hard coating material normally used in engine parts, semiconductor bonding equipment common on some surface that is requiring a smooth surface finishing a tough hard layer to withstand wearing, and a black coating to act as good background again the Lighter colour of lead frame material, such that Auto PRS (pattern Recognition System ) could take snap shot of the profile of the lead frame, that is a prerequisite requirement for the bonder to place the Silicon Chip right on the Bonding pad.
It is not an expensive process itself, but a stable process is required to maintain the evenness of the coating and colour. So the entire cost become High!
