    The present RM016 extra thin automatic wristwatch, made for the renowned Singapore-based retailer The Hour Glass, was introduced to the market at the Singapore Tempus Watch Fair in 2007. This present PVD-coated titanium wristwatch is part of the All-Black Commemorative Collection specially made for the event. The present watch is numbered 17 of a limited edition of 28 pieces only.
    A deviation from Richard Mille’s iconic tonneau-shaped case, the RM016 is fitted within a rectangular watch case with a skeletonized dial proudly showcasing the movement. The thin PVD-coated titanium case gives the watch a masculine yet discreet appearance. Presented in excellent overall condition, the present watch embodies many of the classic Richard Mille’s elements that make the brand so popular today.

    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.
