  • Catalogue Essay

    Known for their unmissable tonneau-shaped wristwatches inspired by automotive engineering combined with high-tech watchmaking, Richard Mille has become a household name. With a specific style that transcends a sporty appeal, Richard Mille has become one of the most forward-thinking firms with the implementation of new materials. Having made waves in the past few years due to an increase in demand and its successful marketing campaigns from sponsoring F1 teams to creating highly advanced timepieces for tennis players and other athletes alike, the firm has become a league on its own with a dedicated community of passionate collectors.

    Launched in 2016, the RM67-01 was the brand’s first slim tonneau-shaped wristwatch differing from its other counterparts where the case is traditionally bulkier. Launched in titanium, white gold, pink gold and gem-set examples, the reference has become one of the most highly sought-after Richard Mille models in recent times. Featuring a skeletonized dial, the design language is purely Mille featuring its signature Arabic numerals, as well as a digital date display positioned at the 5 o’clock position. The present example belongs to a rare configuration of the model featuring an unusual titanium case set-with 8-rows of diamond-settings that runs from the top to the bottom of the case, known to collectors as “half diamond-setting”. Traditionally and commonly witnessed on white gold and pink gold cases, the feature on a titanium case is certainly interesting allowing the wearer to enjoy the same aesthetics though much lighter in weight.

    Extremely well-preserved, the present example Richard Mille RM67-01 Ti with “half diamond-set” case from circa 2020 is offered with its full set of accessories and a great chance for collectors to acquire this rare and desirable timepiece that is extremely sought-after by collectors 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.
