  • Catalogue Essay

    Throughout the history of horology, the quest has always been to create timepieces, which are functional, aesthetically pleasing and accurate. As all collectors know, issues of temperature, gravity and even vibration can cause a mechanical movement to speed up or down, creating variations in timekeeping. With the Richard Mille RM055, the brand sought to address the question, how to reduce the vibrations so that when worn, the watch maintained accuracy. The Bubba Watson draws its inspiration from the American left-handed golf champion, who is known to wear watches during tournaments. The force of the swing as well as the hit of the ball can cause vibrations to a movement.

    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.
