RICHARD MILLE DEBUTS LUXURIOUS WATCH FOR HER
Updated: Nov 26, 2019
Synonymous with making luxurious men watches, Swiss watchmaker Richard Mille has unveiled its first in-house automatic tourbillon movement: the RM 71-01 Automatic Tourbillon Talisman for women.
The limited edition collection comprises of 10 different designs in red gold or white gold cases, with each piece limited to just five.
The watch, features an in-house automatic tourbillon movement, embodying the vitality of the brand commitment to the feminine. The mechanism incorporates a new automatic tourbillon that is slim, ultra-high performance, and enhanced with sparkling diamonds, mother-of-pearl, onyx and black sapphires. The ten variations on the RM 71-01 Automatic Tourbillon Talisman weave together cutting-edge technicity and the art of fine jewelry.
An artisan’s Signature
Envisioned by Cécile Guenat, Ladies’ Collection Director. Guenat took inspiration from Art Deco forms and tribal arts, such as masks and African sculptures.
Within each variation, Guenat highlighted the skeleton movement. Each dial, a mere 0.9 mm in thickness, is hand set with mother-of-pearl, onyx and black diamonds. The bezel is lavishly set with diamonds of different shapes and sizes in various radiating patterns that complement the design of the dial piece. Even the sides of the case are set with gems, as is the crown and the movement’s variable geometry rotor, visible through the sapphire crystal case back.
The Automatic Tourbillon Talisman ticks with the brand-new and fully manufacture Caliber CRMT1. Being the brand’s first automatic Tourbillon movement, CRMT1 seems to have its place among Richard Mille milestones with its spectacular architecture made of mostly Grade 5 titanium, 6.2mm height and super-lightweight of 8gr only as well as its unrivaled robustness despite its mind-blowing features.
Beating at 28,800 vibrations per hour and offering a power reserve of 50 hours, the new movement features a gem-set bidirectional rotor with variable geometry that enables winding to be adjusted to the owner’s activity level. Adjusting the two weights, which can be slid sideways into the correct position and fixed in place by spline screws, modifies the setting. If the weights are positioned at either end of the rotor, the inertia is considerably reduced, resulting in the barrel winding more slowly.
