  • Catalogue Essay

    The RM 033 was a departure from Richard Mille’s signature aesthetic with its round case and new automatic movement and was the brands thinnest model when introduced in 2011. The large 45.7mm case has an architectural structure that retains the overall look and feel of the Mille design. The thin case has a curvature that fits well to one’s wrist, and with the rubber strap has a strong masculine appeal, that is rugged and fit for the outdoors. The skeletonized dial allows for a partial view of the movement, and with large Roman numerals it is reminiscent of the earlier RM 017 tourbillon model released the same year.

    For collectors of modern technical watches, the RM 033 is a great choice and value. It is a watch from a master of technology, who has a strong design aesthetic, and makes watches that have a 21st century appeal. In like new condition and complete with box and papers it is sure to please the discerning collector.

  • 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.
