Richard Mille Tourbillon Wristwatch RM 018

        Richard Mille is a relatively young watch-making brand which acquired international prestige through creating high-performance wristwatches which embody not only the guiding principles of 21st century’s watch-making industry, but, at the same time, which testify about a profound connection between the skilled watchmaker and the adrenalin-inflicting world of motor sports, as well as the aerospace industry, the main sources of inspiration for the brand’s designers and engineering team.

        Paying a great tribute to the fruitful intertwining between Richard Mille and the prestigious House of Boucheron, founded in 1858, the watchmaker created another unique timepiece of timeless elegance and unmatched mechanical complexity the RM018 Tourbillon Wristwatch.

        Driven by an unfailing stream of inspiration, which defines its pioneering spirit, Richard Mille, practically reinvented the 21st century watch-making using highly innovative materials, and implementing vanguard technologies. Now, in its desire of commemorating the 150th anniversary of the renowned House of Boucheron, the skilled watchmaker united its efforts with those of Jean-Christophe Bedos, the powerhouse’s president, and from this privileged partnership based on shared principles and values an amazing timepiece, the RM018 Tourbillon Wristwatch, emerged as an epitome of watch-making craftsmanship, luxury and exceptional quality.

        This revolutionary timepiece represented an enormous challenge both for the skilled watchmaker and for the master jeweler, an indeed a delicacy for the exceptional objects connoisseurs which will surely be charmed by a worldwide premiere: the very first timepiece with the wheels of the movement made from semi-precious and precious stones. The vanguard technology revealed here astounds the sharp aesthetic sense of a true watch enthusiast, due to an inner refinement and an exquisite elegance owed to the meticulous work of the jeweler.

        The production of this fascinating timepiece is furthermore shared by the two powerhouses, as Richard Mille produces the watch’s case and movement while Boucheron manufactures the precious and semi-precious stones. Every watch unfurls, for a curious eye its intricate unique nature, fitted with a one-of-a-kind stones combination. This tourbillon is the final product of many hours of meticulous hand-finishing and adorning, that is why the model will be produced in a highly exclusive edition of just 30 wristwatches in 18 karat white gold timepieces which will be sold for a price ranging between $700,000.00 to over $1,000,000.00.
