  • Catalogue Essay

    Superlative in design and deemed to be one of the most advanced cutting-edge luxury wristwatch of our time, the Richard Mille RM007 is the brand’s first feminine model which embarked in 2005. A design that marries mechanical hyper-technology with beauty, the model’s elongated shape with sensual curvaceous contours and smaller dimension flourished into an array of styles from precious metal to diamond-set timepieces for the RM007 lineage.

    The present RM007 from 2009 shining in a glamourous mirror-polished pink gold face is balanced with eight Grade-5 titanium spline screws, the gorgeous skeletonised dial is finished with a PVD-coating and illustrates incredible depth to this elegant timepiece. Fitted with a transparent sapphire disc with numerals painted in black that rotates through the aperture at 6 o’clock with a contrasting white background, the date of the month stands out from the dial with clear legibility. Furthermore the pink gold case is contrasted with satin-brushed caseband and features a matching gold stud-shaped crown that adds a touch of edginess to the overall chic design.

    Powered by the calibre RM007 that incorporates a patented bi-directional automatic movement with a rotor segment that is distinctive to the model. Under the sapphire caseback exhibits the 18-carat satin finished gold rotor with a transparent PVD coated weight compartment. Like the elegance of a hourglass filled with fine sand that flows organically, the compartment is filled with more than 100 free-flowing 18-carat gold micro-beads which reduces energy bursts during shock, each rotation of the rotor is simply mesmerising. Further secured by Grade-5 titanium spline screws used in aviation and professional racing, the screws allows precise tightening control of the torque during assembly.

    Preserved in excellent overall condition and accompanied by its original warranty, the present RM007 with attractive feminine codes and part of the firm’s historical milestones is the perfect timepiece made for the discerned ladies who see beauty and mechanical perfection with equal adoration.

  • 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.
