This watch, featuring an in-house automatic tourbillon movement, embodies the vitality of the brand commitment to the feminine. The mechanism incorporates a new automatic tourbillon that is slim, ultrahigh performance and enhanced with sparkling diamonds, mother-of-pearl, onyx and black sapphires.
The ten variations of the RM 71-01 Automatic Tourbillon Talisman weave together the cutting-edge technicity specific to Richard Mille and the unique sculptural qualities of fine art jewellery, highlighting their respective strengths.
It’s all about the art of surprise and wonder, the inexorable desire to create. ‘We are known for our incredibly technical, high performance watches that draw inspiration from the automotive and aeronautics industries, even though women’s watches have represented a considerable percentage of sales for several years now. That said, we needed a modern, creative and talented young woman to inject new energy into our status quo and take the women’s collection to new heights.
It was Cécile Guenat, the daughter of my friend and business partner Dominique, who met this challenge by overcoming technical obstacles, freeing herself from consensus and establishing a unique and resolutely contemporary style, shared Richard Mille.
