Description

From 2001 when they introduced the RM001 tourbillon and 2007 when the RM011 was released, “RM” had already redefined modern-horology. It was like Mr Mille created a category in itself, avant-garde watches using cutting-edge techniques+materials inspired by motorsports and aerospace.

The  RM011 is certainly the most recognisable model, its story and success has RM’s friendship with Brazilian driver, Felipe Massa. Since then we saw RM011-01, RM011-02 and in 2016 the release of an upgraded version, bigger in size called RM11-03.
The classic tonneau case is emblematic of Richard Mille and its signature design, endorsing top athletes and answering their need for watches that resist extreme conditions, 2011 saw a revolution with the world’s lightest and shock resistant watch in the industry.  The RM27 collection developed for Rafael Nadal, to allow him to play during tournaments with his watch.  Since then the carbon fiber cased RM27-01, RM27-02 and RM27-03 versions were released, all limited to 50 pieces & ultra-ultra-light.

*The present model is the Richard Mille RM 35-02 Rafael Nadal – Again a tribute to the famous tennis player – this time they evolved this version with a new caliber and a more flashy design • The large tonneau case is this time in Quartz-TPT Red • A unique and uncommon material  for a tribute to the Spanish flag • It surrounds a skeleton dial with a black inner bezel graduated in red and the gorgeous « floating » self-winding movement with double barrel system assembled with grade 5 titanium screws • This timepiece is made to absorb any heavy shocks and stress • Visible from both sides.  Located in the middle  are the hours, minutes and center seconds hands in grey • The crown has a nice red collar in Alcryn  that reminds the usual bands Rafa wears, the watch has a power-reserve of more than 55 hours.

The company was bought by Matra in 1981 and Richard Mille rose to manage Matra’s watchmaking business, which then included the brands Yema and Cupillard Rième. Matra’s watchmaking activities were sold to Seiko, who Mille left in 1992 to start a watchmaking business for jewellery firm Mauboussin. In 1999 he founded the company Richard Mille SA in collaboration with Audemars Piguet. Its first product, the RM001 went on sale in 2001
