    The present timepiece RM 52-01 is a follow-up edition of the widely successful RM 052. Introduced in 2013, it is the second timepiece in the Skull collection which features the iconic skull design which has become a symbol of the Richard Mille brand. Not only is the case aesthetically pleasing, but it is also very purposeful. The RM 52-01 case is water resistant to 50 meters. It is assembled using an average of 20 spline screws in grade 5 titanium and abrasion-resistant washers in 316L stainless steel.

    Most strikingly, the upper and lower jaws of the skull icon hold the jewel of the tourbillon carriage, invigorating the icon with the 4 bridges that link the movement to the case. Complimented with box and warranty, the watch is an all-round crown jewel that would please even the most discerning collectors. A limited edition of 6 pieces, the present watch was specifically manufactured for the Asia market, and is the first time that the model is offered at auction, to our best knowledge.

  • 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.
