comments

Carlos Sainz Jr. is a renowned car racer in Formula One, racing for the Ferrari team. He hails from Spain and is the son of the famous rally champion, Carlos Sainz Sr. Starting with the Toro Rosso team, he switched to McLaren in 2019 and then to Ferrari in 2020. Together with his teammate, Charles Leclerc, they make a formidable pair in Formula One. With a net worth exceeding $50 million, Carlos also boasts an impressive collection of watches just like the other F1 drivers like Max Verstappen, Lewis Hamilton, Lando Norris, and Daniel Ricciardo.


Before we look further at Carlos Sainz Jr watch collection, I just want to mention about bad thing that just happened to him recently. 


In September 2023, Carlos Sainz Jr. made headlines. Just after securing third place at the Italian GP in Milan, he faced an unexpected hurdle: his £500,000 Richard Mille watch was stolen. Thanks to the prompt actions of his bodyguard and the vigilant intervention of nearby bystanders, Carlos bravely pursued and caught the culprits. This not only ensured the retrieval of his watch but also led to the thieves' arrest by the police.

The Richard Mille RM 50-03 Tourbillon Split-Seconds Chronograph Ultralight McLaren F1 is an extraordinary timepiece that embodies the pinnacle of innovation and craftsmanship. This striking watch is the result of a collaborative endeavor between Richard Mille and McLaren F1, two entities renowned for their cutting-edge technology and commitment to performance and precision.


The RM 50-03, weighing just under 40 grams including the strap, is renowned as one of the world's lightest mechanical chronographs.

Just like his fellow Ferrari racer, Charles LeClerc, Carlos also owns the Richard Mille RM67-02 that was initially made for LeClerc.


Though the watch doesn't boast intricate complications, it perfectly embodies the essence of a sports watch: lightweight, durable, and designed for peak performance in every regard.


Weighing in at a mere 32 grams, the RM 67-02 owes its lightness to a combination of TPT composite materials, grade 5 titanium, and an elastic wristband, positioning it as the lightest automatic watch in the brand's lineup.


The skeletonized dial is meticulously crafted. It begins with a wafer-thin titanium plate, just four-tenths of a millimeter thick. This plate is then expertly shaped to mirror the geometries of the underlying mechanism. Afterward, the dial is hand-painted and finished with precision.


The watch's color scheme is thoughtfully chosen to reflect the hues of Leclerc's national flag: red and white.


Approximate value: over $350,000
