Founded in 1999, Richard Mille has a relatively short history next to many other Swiss houses. Regardless of this, the brand has gained a huge following and reputation for creating contemporary pieces of the utmost quality.
The present reference RM07 represents the highest level of craftsmanship Richard Mille has to offer. The watch rendered in white gold is exquisitely set with black sapphires and diamonds. The dial is centred with blue mother-of-pearl surrounded by baguette-cut black sapphires and the outer rim skeletonized to enjoy its superior movement. Confirmed by the certificate, the watch is set with a total of 401 stones with an approximate weight of 6.85 carats. It is suggested that this watch retailed for close to $500,000 USD.
The watch has never been used or seen on the market before and can be considered as one of the greatest lady's contemporary jeweled masterpieces.
