Two years after Richard Mille appeared in the RM 71-01 black and white tones (you can read our presentation here), Richard Mille launched the new RM 71-02 automatic tourbillon amulet series The protagonist is the prismatic color of the gem, which enriches the timepiece.
The series consists of ten models, inspired by the club culture of the 1970s and the birth of electronic and disco music.
Diamonds, sapphires, rubies, tsavorites, peridot, lapis lazuli, crystals, malachite, mother-of-pearl, turquoise, pink opal and jasper are only used by Cécile Guenat, the creative and development director of Richard Mille Some of the colorful elements, such as these exclusive creations.
Thanks to the exquisite craftsmanship, gems are inlaid in geometric patterns throughout the case and dial.
Imagine that it takes more than six months to verify the location, size and setting type of a gemstone to achieve the required precise results.
The arrangement, inlay patterns, engraving and central decoration of the dial with a thickness of 0.90 mm are different for the ten models.
All models use a 52.20 x 34.40 x 12.50 mm white gold case and are equipped with a self-winding CRMT1 movement, which was originally developed for the 2018 RM 71-01 automatic tourbillon guard series.
Richard Mille’s eighth internal movement and its first automatic tourbillon movement, this hollow barrel-shaped movement is only 6.2 mm thick and weighs only 8 grams.
The mechanism combines a new automatic tourbillon, which is particularly slim, ultra-high performance, and equipped with shiny diamonds, mother-of-pearl, onyx and black sapphire. The base plate that protects the rotation of the tourbillon remains open to maintain transparency.
This new movement starts at 28,800 vibrations per hour and provides a power reserve of 50 hours. Its gem-set bidirectional rotor has a variable geometry that can adjust the clockwork according to the owner’s activity level.
Each model is associated with a woman’s name.
