  • Catalogue Essay

    After indulging in a successful career at Matra as well as spearheading Mauboussin’s first campaign for watches, Richard Mille started his own brand in 2001. With a vision to create timepieces utilizing the most advanced cutting-edge technology, three-dimensional construction with an emphasis in pure mechanics and finished traditionally by hand, Richard Mille simply creates “racing machines for the wrist”.

    Released in 2006, the RM010 has since become one of the most sought-after models due to its iconic traits and design. Featuring a fully skeletonized movement, the aesthetical attributes certainly pays its homage to the firm’s philosophy. Manufactured by one of the most respected movement manufacturers in the trade, Vaucher, the base is in fact the same used in the RM011 chronograph. Offered in various metals and variations, the RM010 is simply a timepiece that displays the date via a rotating transparent sapphire disc with its numbers painted in black indicated through a window positioned at 7 o’clock with a contrasting white background. Representing one of the purest forms of Richard Mille timepieces, the RM010 will most likely go down in the firm’s history as one of the quintessential models launched.

    Offered from the original owner, the present example RM010 in white gold accompanied by its original warranty from 2007 is the perfect opportunity for collectors to acquire as their first Mille wristwatch.

  • 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.
