In an industry where some of the finest exponents of watchmaking have histories dating back 200 years and more, Richard Mille is considered relatively young, launching its first models in 2001. Yet in its short history, Richard Mille has gained a reputation for its highly complicated timepieces.
Richard Mille’s brand awareness has been heightened by engaging with famous names from the field of sport. However, it is the ingenuity of this watch company, with its use of materials and know-how from the fields of aviation and motor racing, which has brought the company to the attention of many watch collectors.
Richard Mille has always made the movements of its watches a key design element with mechanical components often revealed both dial-side and via exhibition case backs. The company forged a close working relationship with Audemars Piguet Renaud & Papi early in its life. This movement specialist has produced both Richard Mille tourbillons and split-seconds chronographs.
The Tripartite case, widely used by the brand, is unusual and highly complex. It consists of three sections, held together with grade 5 titanium spline screws and abrasion resistant washers in a steadfast union.
Annual production is relatively small and pricing could never be described as accessible, hence exclusivity is assured when wearing a timepiece from Richard Mille.
