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.
Launched in 2007, the RM011 Flyback Chronograph with Annual Calendar immediately became Richard Mille’s most sought after watch. Favoured by Felipe Massa and now discontinued, this 18ct rose gold and titanium example from 2014 comes to us with its original RM winding box, signed certificate, and two additional Richard Mille ‘vented’ rubber straps.
