Giving existing materials a new impulse by applying them in a new manner, as well as the implementation of new materials to watchmaking, is completely second nature to Richard Mille Watches’ philosophy.
In 2005, for the first time in watchmaking history and after years of research and development, a movement baseplate in carbon nanofiber were created and tested in the RM 006.
The technical results were so remarkable that Richard Mille therefore decided to expand the use of carbon nanofiber further in its tourbillon range, opening up a new era in watchmaking. The V2 version of the RM 002-V1 is released.
This timepiece proclaimed the positions the brand have adopted and intend to showcase in each of its creations. It interprets Richard Mille declaration of faith: to innovate continually and in total freedom, even if this means flagrant subversion of traditional watchmaking classicism.
This model immediately exhibits the aesthetic vocabulary used to produce its watchmaking architecture.
