In celebration of Boucheron’s founding in 1858, the most famous jeweller of the Place Vendome and Richard Mille have joined forces to create a unique timepiece, the RM 018 tourbillon, representing a synthesis of Boucheron’s bejewelled savoir faire and the innovation of a 21st century watch brand.
The precious stones therefore shed their role as pure ornamentation and become an integral part of the movement; the ultimate in refinement coupled with breathtaking technical achievement.
The production of this unique tourbillon watch was shared between both companies with the case and the movement by Richard Mille, and the semi-precious and precious stones chosen by and embellished with Boucheron. Furthermore, each watch was unique, with different combinations of stones in each.
Due to the time-consuming nature of the production, which requires much hand finishing and embellishment, only 5 pieces were produced per year.
