  • Catalogue Essay

    Richard Mille has risen quickly through the ranks of the world of horology since its inception in 1999. RM has built an iconic character by combining essential elements of horology, artistry, technical innovation, and exquisite watchmaking. With considerable research and development on case materials based on engineering, racing, and aeronautics, the timepieces are built to withstand the rigors of activity, whether it be for Rafael Nadal on the tennis court or Felipe Masa rushing through the cockpit. In 2001, the first Richard Mille watch, the RM001, was released. The brand's popularity has soared since then, due to its avant-garde and instantly identifiable style. The RM11-03, upon its release in 2007 was a hugely successful model and was a watershed moment in the brand's history. Richard Mille pushed the RM11-03 to new heights, stressing case alterations such as more geometrical structural lines and more clearly visible cuts to create a striking image.

    The present example numbered 180 is presented in excellent overall condition. Regarded as one of the grail pieces with extreme interest in the market, the present Richard Mille RM11-03 will most certainly, if not already, develop a holy status in the lineage of the famed manufacturer.

  • 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.
