  • Catalogue Essay

    'The 1000th Richard Mille. This watch is numbered 1000. 'Mille' in French translates to 'thousand' and I thought it would be cool to own the 'Mille' Mille. The Richard Mille RM005 is a very popular model and really illustrates the Richard Mille design. The movement is fitted with a variable geometric rotor. This allows the re-winding of the main spring to be adapted to the user's activity. Pending on the user's environment and activity, the rotors in inertia is modified to either speed up or slow down. Therefore, the results is that the movement winding mechanism personalized itself to the owner's needs.'

    Richard Mille

    Swiss • 1999

    Established in 1999, Richard Mille's ultra-modern timepieces combine cutting-edge materials from high performance worlds such as Formula 1 racecars with high-end traditional watchmaking. The brand's revolutionary designs, technical breakthroughs and exceptional hand-finishing excite even the most discriminating collectors, and have positioned Richard Mille alongside the top makers of the modern luxury watch world.

    Innovative watches, such as the RM 027 Tourbillon, which was the world’s lightest mechanical watch when introduced in 2011, have helped the brand invert the concept of the luxury watch. Key models include the RM 009 Tourbillon cased in Aluminum Silicon Carbide (AlSiC), the RM 027-02 Tourbillon made for tennis star Rafael Nadal with a case made from quartz and carbon fiber and the RM 008 split seconds chronograph.
