  • Catalogue Essay

    Richard Mille believes that timepieces should be both sophisticated, practical and comfortable on the wrist.

    Introduced in 2002, RM003 is slightly larger than its predecessor RM002. Building upon the consequent success of RM002, the present RM003 also features a movement base plate made with carbon nanofibre that optimizes the performance of the watch and enhance its precision and reliability.

    The dial features a transparent sapphire crystal disc that indicates a dual time zone with hours, which come into view when suspended above the white field at 3 o'clock. The dual time complicated is simple to adjust via a single button in the band.

    The present watch rendered in white gold showcases the technological complexities that Richard Mille is best known for. Offered with original warranty and fitted presentation box, the present watch features many of the attributes that make Richard Mille so popular today.

  • 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.
