Richard Mille RM 40-01 McLaren Speedtail
Despite the extraordinary anatomy of the case, Salvador Arbona, Richard Mille’s Movement Technical Director, created a horological ‘engine’ that seamlessly occupies all the available space and introduces a level of mechanical sophistication that makes the RM 40-01 an appropriately extraordinary companion to the Speedtail. McLaren’s relentless pursuit of aerodynamic efficiency provided the starting point for the design of the RM 40-01 Automatic Tourbillon McLaren Speedtail.

Richard Mille RM 055 Bubba Watson
The RM 055 Bubba Watson is inspired by the RM 038 Bubba Watson tourbillon watch presented in 2011. Its mechanical movement, crafted in grade 5 titanium displays extreme skeletonisation. The RM 055 is a highly technical creation that is innovative, sporty and hand-finished in the finest watchmaking tradition.

Richard Mille RM 69 Erotic
The RM 69 offers its wearers the pure pleasure of the new Richard Mille “Oracle” complication, a mechanism that sets off the rotation of three grade 5 titanium engraved rollers like Tibetan prayer wheels, displaying a random phrase. This tripartite tonneau-shaped case is fully curved, which enables the watch to be ergonomic and comfortable, but is time consuming to produce and requires a high level of quality control.
Richard Mille RM 69 Erotic Retail Price: $783,000
Richard Mille RM 052 Skull
The RM 052 Skull presented in 2012 is a visualisation of these precepts. This new caliber represents the fullest expression of liberty and nonconformity and as such, very much typifies the philosophy of the brand. Extreme technique, high performance, the highest level of aesthetic and hand-finishing: the RM 052 Skull is true Haute Horlogerie.

Richard Mille RM 35-02 Rafal Nadal
Developing the Nadal line, always an attractive prospect, means ambitiously pursuing continued technical improvements, while keeping the watch’s aesthetics up to date through advantageous use of new materials—like the Carbon TPT® line—and new colors. Inspired by the RM 35-01, the RM 35-02 emerged in response to a request from many Richard Mille customers for a self-winding mechanism at the heart of a Nadal calibre.

Richard Mille 61-01 Yohan Blake
The RM 61-01 Yohan Blake takes all of its cues from the RM 59-01 tourbillon designed for the Olympic medallist and 2nd fastest man over 100m and 200m. It incorporates the calibre RMUL2, whose highly skeletonised grade 5 titanium movement is treated with PVD and Titalyt® to provide maximum performance.

Richard Mille RM 11-04 Roberto Mancini
The idea of creating a mechanical watch with a dedicated dial for tracking half-time, extra time and overtime might seem an obvious one, however, the ingenious display, combined with the availability of a flyback chronograph, gives Roberto complete mastery of time on the playing field. While conceding nothing of the ingenuity that characterised the RM 11-01, the RM 11-04 incorporates the brand’s latest style codes, as seen in the new lines of the crown, its variable-geometry rotor and its ultra-sporty case in Carbon TPT® with raised crenulations.

Richard Mille RM 67-02
Starting with the RM 67-01, whose lightness, thinness and ergonomics made it a perfect candidate, we reworked its lines to highlight its hidden athletic qualities. The definition of the bezels and case with four extensions, in addition to being a hallmark of the brand’s sports watches, contributes to the reinforcement the case structure. The RM 67-02 weighs a mere of 32 grams, thanks to the combination of TPT® composite materials, grade 5 titanium and the elastic wristband, the lightest strap ever created by the brand.
Richard Mille RM 67-02 Retail Price: $120,500
Richard Mille RM 52-05 Pharrell Williams
Conjuring the visions, fantasies, and other imaginary projections of the brand’s partners is a familiar quest for Richard Mille, one that begins all over with every new adventure. A truly artistic project, the development of the RM 52-05 is special for the way it hinges on interpreting an idea, a symbol and a desire. This last has taken the form of a tourbillon whose originality lies in its astonishingly multidisciplinary techniques.
