  • Catalogue Essay

    Richard Mille is synonymous with viciously cool designs, jaw dropping cutting edge movements, unusual case metals and a design language that remains unparalleled.

    Introduced in 2008, the RM011 features a semi-skeletonized dial with a 3D quality bringing its complexity visually to the fore. It also features a flyback chronograph with date and month indication. Adopting a large tonneau-shaped case with naked screws, the design is iconic and distinctive to the firm. The first edition was launched in titanium with other variants introduced in 18K pink gold and other materials as limited editions.

    The present RM11-has a bezel made of ATZ, a combination of yttria-stabilised zirconia and alumina whose high-pressure injection-moulding increases rigidity by 20 to 30% and reduces the material’s porosity to an absolute minimum.

    ATZ is known for its stable colour and a toughness greater than that of sapphire. Next to diamond, it is one of the hardest materials in the world. Long and difficult machining using diamond tools is required to perfectly craft this complex, curved bezel and satin finish. The caseband and back bezel are made of grade 5 titanium.

    The present RM11-03 is a rare and elusive model launched in summer of 2021, never published nor officially presented but reserved only for the brand’s greatest collectors making it one of the rarest and most collectible pieces produced by Richard Mille.

    All proceeds exceeding the price paid by the consignor, will be donated to charities supporting access to medical care for families in need and orphanages.

  • 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.
