After a long wait with great anticipation, Richard Mille presented one of the most complicated lady’s model - RM019 Lady’s Tourbillon wristwatch.  It quickly charmed the world with its mysterious and elegant design and took the prize in the category « Best Lady’s Watch » in the Asia Edition of the Grand Prix de l'Horlogerie de Genève held in Singapore in September 2009. 

The most striking feature of this new creation is the diamond-set Celtic Knot that traverses and weaves itself over and through various parts of the movement, connecting and joining winding barrel, power reserve indicator and tourbillon in an endless cycle. The Celtic Knot, often referred as the mystic or endless knot, is considered one of the most emblematic and identifiable artworks in Celtic history. It suggests that in life there are neither beginnings nor endings.  With its unlimited and returning pathway, the Celtic knot is an emblem of longevity and the never-ending cycle of our existence. The baseplate of the watch is made out of Black Onyx which is often considered as a stone of equilibrium, inspiration and protection against negative energy in many ancient cultures. 

The RM019 “Celtic Knot” Lady’s Tourbillon is available in a very limited number of 30 pieces, each watch is with minor variations therefore making it an absolutely unique opportunity for lady connoisseurs to appreciate the true art of watchmaking.
