  • Catalogue Essay

    Established in 1999, Richard Mille strives to innovate and create timepieces that are inspired by the intricate art and craft of micro-engineering, the world of aerospace and automobile racing. With a rather successful reception, Richard Mille has become a global icon due to its distinctive futuristic appeal fused along with newly innovated materials. Since its establishment, the firm has enjoyed various partnerships with world class athletes such as Rafael Nadal, Formula One teams, and many other global figures.

    Introduced in 2008, the RM011 features a semi-skeletonized dial with a flyback chronograph complication with date and month indication. Adopting a large tonneau-shaped case with naked screws, the design is iconic and distinctive to the firm. The first edition was launched in titanium with other variants introduced in 18K pink gold and other materials as limited editions. In 2018, the firm collaborated with McLaren F1 team to introduce the RM11-03 with an NTPT forged carbon case.

    The present example Richard Mille RM011 Felipe Massa “Le Mans” in titanium is the first example of the model and is numbered 001 of a limited edition of 150 pieces. Made to commemorate the acclaimed F1 driver and the prestigious 24-hour endurance race, the RM011 is certainly a “race day” wristwatch. Preserved in exceptional condition and complete with the full set of accessories, the present example is extremely desirable and offered with superb value considering the rise in demands for these timepieces in the market today, even more so as they have discontinued the coveted RM11-03 this year.

    The present lot is being sold to benefit The One Drop Foundation, a charity striving to provide safe drinking water to all communities.

    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.
