JJ Lin (林俊杰) caught the attention of netizens when he wore a fancy and expensive-looking accessory. The 38-year-old singer returned to Singapore for Chinese New Year from Taiwan and has recently posted photos of himself on a bike outing.
Lin was wearing bicycle gear, which includes a colourful orangey and red cycling shirt, a helmet, and protective glasses. But what grabbed the attention of netizens is the fancy-looking watch that’s probably worth more than a typical-looking house. The watch is an RM 11-03 Ultimate Edition created by Franco-Swiss luxury watchmaker Richard Mille and is worth RM2.8 million.
The watch is extremely rare since it is the Ultimate Edition. This model only has a few units in the market, and the one Lin is wearing is probably the last of them. The RM 11-03 watch is designed to be virtually unbreakable, as the case is assembled using Carbon TPT (Thin Ply Technology).
This material is incredibly strong, which is why Richard Mille’s watches stand out. If Lin himself were to fall off his bike, there probably wouldn’t be any scratch marks on his watch at all. Certain athletes including tennis star Rafael Nadal, professional golfer Bubba Watson, and Formula One racer Felipe Massa all have worn watches made by Richard Mille.
Lin also wore the RM 11-03 watch when he attended the Golden Melody Awards last year in October 2020. The Singaporean Mandopop singer was also seen wearing the same watch when visiting Spotify’s regional office on 1st March, where he had a room all to himself.
On 3rd March, the musician wore the watch again on an outing with his mother to Jay Chou’s favourite bubble tea chain located in Taiwan, Machi Machi, bringing his flex once again. Lin even gave a shout-out on Instagram to his friend Ang Jun Yang, who is a producer, songwriter, and someone who co-owns the Singapore outlet.
Looking at his IG feed, it’s pretty obvious that JJ Lin loves watches and has a whole collection of them.
