Richard Mille reveals the RM 017 Tourbillon

First published: 23-11-2010

Richard Mille has unveiled a new timepiece which brings together the sophistication of a product from the luxury watchmaker with a modern design.

Entitled the RM 017 Tourbillon, one luxury element which should benefit users who wear the watch is the fact that this product only measures in at 8.7mm thick, Watch Luxus reported.

However, despite the size, the news source commented: "Nothing has been left to chance in the design of the RM 017 Tourbillon. Each part has been carefully created so that it meets Richard Mille’s requirements in terms of rigidity, reliability and precision."

Some elements which could lead fashion watch fans to make a purchase include a ceramic endstone for its tourbillon cage, as well as the case and movement of the timepiece being designed in total consistency.

Richard Mille, a company which produced its first timepiece only at the start of the millennium, finishes the watch off with a movement plate developed from grade two titanium, which is then polished with a black PVD coating.
