Richard Mille is set to charm the ladies this year. It has just launched its first automatic tourbillon in its latest women’s watch, the RM 71-01 Automatic Tourbillon Talisman.
The brand is known for its high-precision calibres paired with edgy aesthetics, and its latest watch does not disappoint.
Nestled in the heart of the case is the calibre CRMT1, the brand’s eighth in-house calibre. With skeletonised base plate and bridges made of grade 5 titanium, the tonneau-shaped calibre weighs only eight grams and boasts 50 hours of power reserve.
The design of the watch is just as spectacular. The RM 71-01 is available in 10 different variations, including white or red gold cases paired with dials featuring mother-of-pearl, onyx and diamonds.
The timepieces were designed by Cécile Guenat, the women’s collection director at Richard Mille, who comes with a solid background in fine jewellery. Guenat was inspired by art deco and tribal arts elements to create the ultimate talisman for the modern woman. The brand had to bring jewellery artisans, dial-makers and watchmakers together because of the complexity of the design. The result is strong, geometric lines that converge to crown the central portion of the tourbillon.
