Prestige Hong Kong - 40 under 40 - - Contents -


In 2009, Richard Mille in­tro­duced its first diver’s watch with a round case. Shortly af­ter, the brand pre­sented an au­to­matic diver’s watch, the 47mm-di­am­e­ter RM 028, which rep­re­sents a per­fect mix of style and func­tion. It wears com­fort­ably and looks fu­tur­is­tic, with an ex­cep­tional case and skele­tonised move­ment that em­body all the in­con­testable qual­i­ties that typ­ify the Richard Mille brand, and with ti­ta­nium used for the move­ment, the case and most of the screws. The RM 028 meets all ISO norms to qual­ify as a true “diver” and is wa­ter re­sis­tant up to 30 bar. The ex­cep­tional wa­ter re­sis­tance is achieved with a three-part case con­struc­tion and torque screws, with com­plete in­te­gra­tion of the lugs into the case sys­tem. The RM 028’s skele­tonised au­to­matic move­ment utilises a ro­tor with vari­able geom­e­try, a ma­jor Richard Mille in­no­va­tion that en­ables the level of au­to­matic wind­ing to be ad­justed to the user’s life­style via the set­ting of two white-gold wings.
