  • Catalogue Essay

    Richard Mille announced his first watch, the RM001 Tourbillon, in 2000 and has ever since remained true to three key concepts driving the passion, which helped redefine modern horology: the best technical innovations, the best artistry and architecture with the best heritage and fine watchmaking craftsmanship. Mille sought to create wristwatches that were 21st century masterpieces, employing cutting edge materials and techniques, but remaining steeped in traditional Swiss watchmaking

    The quest for exceptional quality and perfection is the constant driving force behind Richard Mille, and RM-005 is an epitome of such brand philosophy. Debuted in 2004, RM 005 was the brand's first automatic wristwatch and was offered in a variety of case materials during its production run. One of the most distinctive is the version shown here is its all grey finishing and yellow inner bezel, as well as the colourful accents to the dial, produced especially for the former Ferrari Formula One driver Filipe Massa. The present watch is numbered 201 of a limited edition of 300 pieces, and is preserved in excellent condition.

  • 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.
