Wowowin viewers couldn't help but notice that host Willie Revillame is sporting a new luxury watch.
According to wristwatch experts, the timepiece is an RM 011 Felipe Massa Richard Mille watch. Considered a collector's item, the Swiss-made titanium watch is worth 10 million pesos.
Willie's Felipe Massa Richard Mille watch has an orange bracelet, a nod to his signature color.
The luxury watch was made by Swiss watch maker Richard Mille in honor of his friend Felipe Massa, a renowned Brazilian race-car driver who participated in the 15th season of Formula One and retired in 2017. There are two models available: the RM-005FM and the RM 011.
According to the Richard Mille website, the watch's design "takes its cues from the high-tech precision engineering of F1 racing cars developed to deliver exceptional performance on the track."
In particular, the RM 011 model "crystallises the inspirational foundation of the Richard Mille brand: race cars."
As the website further expounds, it is "light, thanks to its titanium movement affixed to a superstiff case with silent-blocks, the watch has aerodynamic pushers machined with non-slip ribbing. The crown resembles a smooth tyre encircling a spoked wheel rim.”
The website also lists some of the watch's features, such as a "flyback chronograph function [that] can reset without stopping and offers a countdown function" and an "annual calendar with oversize date."
The luxury watch was given to Willie as a gift by Sam Verzosa and RS Francisco, owners of the direct-selling company that sponsors Wowowin.
On November 30, 2020, the Wowowin host thanked the two businessmen not just for the watch, but also for their support to the show.
