  • Catalogue Essay

    'This is a piece unique. The case is black and DLC-treated titanium. The original retail was between 600,000-700,000 Euros. There is no movement equivalent at Richard Mille apart formthe RM56 with sapphire case. Included is also a photograph of the movement and a customized Richard Mille electric guitar. There are not many words to describe the feeling and emotions that this watch evokes. It is incredible and truly amazing.'

    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.
