Catalogue Note

With a Richard Mille warranty certificate, instruction manual and travel pouch.

Regarded as one of the most cutting edge watchmakers, Richard Mille introduced RM002 in 2001 as a skeletonized tourbillon model equipped with torque indicator. With the innovative use of materials such as carbon nanofiber, it presents a revolutionary way of telling time and delivers a tourbillon in a functional and modern aesthetic. RM002 was recognized as one of the pioneering models of the brand with its use of openwork dial and transparent case back instead of conventional opaque dial. All these technologically advanced developments paved way for the numerous breakthroughs shown in later Richard Mille models.
