The first watch to carry Richard Mille’s name was the RM 001, in 2001. The model marked the beginning of a new era in watchmaking. Today, the collection’s more than sixty models point resolutely towards the future, while holding steadfast to the time-honoured traditions of fine watchmaking. Richard Mille’s success is founded upon three crucial elements : the best in technical innovation, the best of artististic and architectural features that contribute to the watch’s ergonomy, and the best of fine watchmaking’s heritage and culture. From the very inception of the brand, Richard Mille has endeavoured to apply to the haute horlogerie the techniques and materials found in the most innovative sectors, from the domain of F1 racing car development to the aerospace industry, with the goal of creating an extreme timepiece, without compromise, without gimmicks.
