RICHARD MILLE RM 63-01 DIZZY HANDS
This watch, introduced in 2014, was inspired by a line from Le Temps, a poem by Gérard de Nerval. At first glance, it tracks time like an ordinary timepiece, but when the pusher in the centre of the crown is depressed, a sort of magic takes over: the sapphire glass dial on which the numerals are printed begins to rotate counter-clockwise, while the hour hand moves clockwise, each at a different speed from the other. When this happens, one gets the impression that time has been dislocated or suspended — until the button is pushed again, and everything on the dial returns to normal. The RM 63-01 comes in a round case of red gold and houses a unique self-winding movement in grade 5 titanium treated with PVD. The watch has a 50-hour power reserve and is the ﬁrst by Richard Mille to have a curved, round front bezel, a subtle mark of the artistry held within its sensual and unique exterior.
