Catalogue Note

With a Richard Mille warranty certificate, an instruction manual and a winding box.

Released in 2002, RM003 features several unusual and sophisticated technical innovations, including a movement base plate made in carbon nanofiber, torque indicator, variable inertia balance, fast rotating barrel and function selector. All these advanced developments not only established foundation for the development of Richard Mille's later models, they also optimize the performance of the watch through enhancing its precision and reliability. When combined with the technical elegance of the tourbillon and the functionality of the quick-set second time zone mechanism, the watch ceases to perform as a mere practical and aesthetically pleasing timekeeper, but has elevated to become a true mechanical marvel.
