Description

I am selling this BRM MT 51 49N racing watch. It was never worn, brand new still in the box. 
I just noticed the small chronograph pusher fell off, not sure when or where,  but it will need to be replaced. Cost for it is around $450. Beside this its in perfect condition.
I am a car enthusiast and held on to this peace for many years. Now ready to sell it, currently there are only 2 of these exact watches for sale on line, one for $14,100US dollars and the other for 9,800 Euros.  Its a gorgeous watch! Please contact me with any questions!

BRM watches display exceptional mechanical sophistication: amazing timepieces for anyone lucky enough to get hold of one!

About Bernard Richards:

Born in a clock-makers family, Bernard Richards was quite logically led to study at the Horology and Micro-mechanics Schools of Paris, and to be filled in turn by the love of traditional clock and watch making.

In the 80s, this knowledge enabled him to create his own watch : the GP-44, a unique model reflecting his passion for mechanical sports and more particularly for the automobile competition. 

This watch was immediately adopted by customers and, in 2003, Bernard Richards decides to create “BRM” Bernard Richards Manufacture.

This master, as some aficionados use to call him, never draws watches. Unlike the others, this enthusiast man creates prototypes directly within his workshop. Bernard Richards is always exceeding ordinary standards and, today, he has succeeded in imposing his brand in the very closed world of luxury watchmaking.

 
The Manufacture:

In the whole world, there is only one watch manufacturer whose timepieces are made in France. Just outside of Paris, the BRM watchmakers create remarkable pieces, each born from a commitment to the competitive spirit that has fueled Bernard Richards since the founding of BRM.

Each manufacturing operation, from the selection of the best metals down to the case setting, is exceptional. The parts are never made by pending, but only by removal of material. Thus their molecular structure is perfectly preserved. All the major operations – fitting, assembling, setting and polishing- are performed by hand and each watch is meticulously verified at each stage of its assembly.

A BRM is a unique and authentic timepiece, all custom-made and hand-finished. All watches are produced in a small series and always will be. Quality, not quantity is our goal. In 2014, Bernard Richards introduces “BRM Jewelry” and launches “La Twice” a unique ring with a revolutionary concept

BRM Method:
Technical skills and perfection in all stages of manufacture. Instead of lugs stamped in the case-piece, we manufacture each element separately, hence the great difficulty of adding the lugs by screwing them onto the case. Thus it is possible to assemble different materials and colors (black or grey titanium case, polished stainless steel lugs …).
The cases are manufactured from 3m long bars of titanium or stainless steel, whereas the majority of competitors use a simple 16 to 18 mm thick stamping. This technical wizardry is expressed in figures with 18 different case parts instead of the usual 2 or 3.
The strap buckle consists of no less than 12 components instead of the 3 currently present in other upmarket watches. More than 20 transfers are necessary for the accomplishment of the watch dial. For the hands, instead of resorting to any of the hundreds of possibilities offered by subcontractors, Bernard Richards creates ornamented hands that are fit for only the most beautiful watches, like beautiful pedal boards created by the Transalpine car industry.
The assembly screws of the watch are also specific. Composed of three holes, their manufacturing requires almost twelve times longer than that of other competitors.
