A pioneer of contemporary watchmaking, Richard Mille had transformed the culture of watch making by constantly showcasing the best technical innovations with avant-garde case constructions.
The RM010 is a highly desirable reference and perfectly embodies the identity of the brand. This pink gold case of the present lot contrasts beautifully with the skeletonized movement creating a strong and attractive visual contrast.
