It is a natural question: how have original Richard Mille wrist watches, which do not have any moving history with the length of several decades and are created by the person, who has not received a special education, become the icon of style immediately after their release? Why are they in demand so much that the dream to become the owner of some models can be fulfilled only in several months? The answer is simple: these multilayer architectural watches with avant-garde design are a personification of a successful, independent, contemporary person, who likes innovation and non-standard solutions. And the way to the implementation of this conception was very difficult. First of all, Richard Mille signed contracts with the best Swiss watch factories and even with the aerospace conglomerate. They helped a genial inventor to fulfill his unique ideas in life. He also purchased a factory in Les Brulais, where he conducted his experiments with materials: for example, developed a case made of Nano-ceramics or special alloy for tourbillion, which weighs only 12 grams as a result.
In 2001 Richard Mille company released the first watch RM-001, where letters mean the initials of Richard Mille. Since that time unquestioning recognition and uniqueness have become the personification of the brand. Only his watches are provided with a deep and sizable dial with unusual architecture, which is perfectly visible due to skeletonizing of most of them. There is practically always a preference for tonneau - “barrel” in the form of the case, besides it is a bit curved as according to Mille only by doing so one can reach a maximal attachment to the wrist. An obligatory attribute of the watch is incredibly painstaking and expensive spline screws made of titanium. They not only decorate the watch, but also give an opportunity to completely control the mounting process due to its construction. Original hands are as if gathered from several parts and screwed. Soon it became obvious: to buy genuine wrist watches Richard Mille means to join the world of successful people, who have built career and have impressive solid contacts. It is not surprising that this is a favorite brand of politicians, millionaires, famous actors.
The watch Architectural Tourbillon RM 012 that received the highest award – “Golden Hand” at the watch contest in Geneva and was the best one among 400 watches of other acknowledged brands is considered to be a genuine technological breakthrough. Platinum is absent in Mille’s mechanism, the details are mounted on the construction made of tubes instead of it. An urban conception, brutal non-trivial design performed of the innovative materials were represented to the amazed jury. It is explicable enough that the price of Richard Mille watches is quite impressive, but it does not prevent genuine experts and brand admirers from the purchase.
Having become an official timekeeper of Le Mans Classic race the company dedicated to it 4 watch models. The last one is RM 030 Le Mans Classic includes the invention of the brand founder – a function due to which a rotor automatically disconnects with maximally wound up spiral that contributes to its preservation. The testing of the mechanisms is performed in the extreme conditions – the brand Richard Mille values its reputation and has a down on reliability and durability of each detail. It happens rather often that the watches are examined not in the laboratory but quite real conditions, for example, it is a nominal ultrathin tourbillion RM027 Rafael Nadal that is considered to be a talisman by Rafael Nadal. His wrist was adorned with luxurious genuine Richard Mille watch four times during the crucial games and he has won four times as a result. These thin, light watches endured incredible pressures on the court due to unique alloy, which is used in aircrafts and space ships. As a rule the brand produces 2 new models a year, the connoisseurs look forward to the opportunity to buy Richard Mille authentic watches for a profitable price and becoming the owners of highly technological, exclusive and prestigious accessories.
