Hong Kong Tatler - - Style | Watches -

COM­ING ACROSS A SEN­TENCE CON­TAIN­ING THE WORDS “RICHARD MILLE,” “RAD­I­CAL” AND “AS­TRO­NOM­I­CAL PRICES” IS NOT AN UN­USUAL OC­CUR­RENCE. FOR ONE REA­SON OR AN­OTHER, THE BRAND NEVER FAILS TO STUN EVEN THE MOST JADED, AND THIS YEAR IT DOES SO AGAIN WITH A LADIES WATCH CALLED TOUR­BIL­LON FLEUR. THE WATCH’S FLY­ING TOUR­BIL­LON IS CON­CEALED BY FIVE PE­TALS THAT MAKE

A MAG­NO­LIA, A FLOWER REVERED FOR ITS LONG EX­IS­TENCE ON EARTH AND ITS DEL­I­CATE AP­PEAR­ANCE, WHICH BE­LIES THE FACT IT SUR­VIVES IN EVEN THE HARSH­EST OF EN­VI­RON­MENTS. RICHARD MILLE’S ME­CHAN­I­CAL MAG­NO­LIA, WITH PE­TALS MADE OUT OF SOLID GOLD, OPENS AND CLOSES IN PER­FECT RHYTHM EV­ERY FIVE MIN­UTES. THIS AL­LOWS THE WEARER, AND CU­RI­OUS BY­STANDERS FOR THAT MAT­TER, TO FULLY AP­PRE­CI­ATE THE FLY­ING TOUR­BIL­LON, WHICH RAISES IT­SELF A MIL­LIME­TRE HIGHER, MIM­ICK­ING A FLOWER PRE­PAR­ING

IT­SELF FOR POL­LI­NA­TION. THIS STUN­NER, WHICH PROM­ISES 36 HOURS OF AU­TON­OMY, IS LIMITED TO 30 PIECES.
