  • Catalogue Essay

    Marking a turning point in the history for the brand, RM011 is one of the most successful and demanded models since its launch in 2007. A limited edition of 10 pieces, the present watch was specifically manufactured for the Japanese market, and is the first time that the model is offered at auction, to our best knowledge.

    With this special edition model, Richard Mille took the RM11-03 to a greater height, emphasizing changes to the case making the structural lines more geometrical, cutouts are more clearly visible to give a strong impression. Adding another element of collectability, the present watch incorporates a flyback mechanism which enables the wearer to reset the watch without stopping it. All in all, the watch has a modish appeal and is an example of uncompromising quality and desirability. It is a timepiece that any watch connoisseur will treasure.

  • 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.
