  • Catalogue Essay

    In 2001 Richard Mille launched his first model, the RM001. The visionary and avant-garde design of the watch set new standards for high end watchmaking by using new technology, design and manufacturing process never seen before in watchmaking. For the last 16 years, the manufacture has pushed the limits of horology placing the brand amongst the most technical time keepers of the era. In this line, the RM010 bears the code of the brand, its very distinctive case is a rich blend of simple design with highly technical manufacturing process. For each case 68 different stamping operations are required to manufacture the three main components (bezel, middle section and case back).
    Apart from a very distinctive and recognizable design, the DNA of the brand is linked to the most extreme conditions faced by athletes. From Raphael Nadal to Eric Grosjean, RMs are the watches that meet the toughest challenges. But the brand DNA also pursues another noble cause and is very active in charity auctions. The present watch with its lilac accents on the dial and on the crown was specially designed and offered by the brand to Action Innocence. This NGO was founded in 1999, by Valérie Wertheimer to help preserve the dignity and integrity of children on the Internet. Since its creation, the organisation has benefited from the support of some watch manufacturers such as Richard Mille. The present unique piece was offered at auction during the charity gala in spring 2011.
    This lot is offered today in close to mint condition with its original box and a set of seven straps to fit any occasion.

  • Artist Biography

    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.
