Catalogue Note

Richard Mille began working in the watch industry in 1974, and founded his own eponymous firm in 1999. It was not until 2001 that he released his first watch for sale, the RM001. Since the launch, Richard Mille has become one of the greatest innovators of technical development, cutting-edge materials and forward-looking style.

Inspired by the perfection found in the Formula-1 racing circuit, Richard Mille creates his innovative and performance-oriented wristwatches using non-traditional materials, such as ceramics, new metallic alloys and carbon fiber compounds. The company does not produce watches with standard metal parts, as many of the gears and pieces that make up the movement are custom-made for individual models.

The present lot, the RM003, features several unusual and sophisticated technical innovations, including a movement base plate in carbon nanofiber, torque indicator, variable inertia balance, fast rotating barrel and function selector. All these advanced developments are not simply created to optimize the performance of the watches, but also to enhance their precision and reliability. When combined with the technical elegance of the tourbillon and the utility of the quick-set second time zone, the watch becomes a mechanical marvel of form and function.
