  • Catalogue Essay

    The RM29 was created with the goal to improve watch ergonomics and make the date window more legible. Released in 2011, the watch has exceptional lines and is highly functional. The casing ring was removed and the movement mounted on a chassis with mounting rubbers adding to overall stability and reliability. A second innovative feature is the rotor with variable geometry that allows the mainspring to adapt to the activity level of the wearer, so adjustments can be made to speed up the winding process during minimal movement or slowed down during period of high activity. The grade 5 titanium with Titalylt treatment provides greater stability. In each and every case the finishing to the timepiece is extraordinary with baseplates and bridges hand-ground, pivots burnished, pinions undercut and sandblasting to the movement.

    The present watch is in excellent original condition and complete with guarantee and winding box. For collectors who seek to look beyond the 21st century, the RM 29 is an ideal piece.

  • 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.
