Richard Mille at Watches & Wonders – crystal clear and coming here

RM57-01 THREEQUARTER RGB

Richard Mille’s prime attractions in Hong Kong were two new tourbillons, an RM 57-01 Phoenix and Dragon Jackie Chan wonder, lavishly integrating a highly technical movement with gold beast-work, and the even more mesmerising RM 56-02 Sapphire.

This creation raises the bar for transparency in a watch, with virtually nothing hidden from view, with the movement suspended within the sapphire crystal case by 0.35mm cables.

You might be surprised to know that the crystal is actually rather tough –resistant to abrasion by a factor of eight over steel. Just 10 will be produced. In other news Mille indicated Australia was the next country where they wanted to have a real presence.
