Prestige Hong Kong - 40 under 40 - - Contents -


Richard Mille is known for push­ing tech­ni­cal and creative bound­aries when cre­at­ing watches that blend spaceage ma­te­ri­als with age-old dec­o­ra­tive tech­niques. The RM 037 Ladies Au­to­matic, made from car­bon TPT, is a tes­ta­ment to the watch­maker’s skill in cre­at­ing highly in­no­va­tive time­pieces stud­ded with pre­cious di­a­monds. Em­bel­lish­ing car­bon TPT with pre­cious gems is no easy task, as the ma­te­rial’s hard­ness and re­sis­tance ne­ces­si­tates the use of spe­cial ma­chines to han­dle mi­trail­lage — the drilling of holes into the ma­te­rial that will later house the stones. The brand suc­ceeded none­the­less, and the fin­ished prod­uct is not only a horo­log­i­cal won­der but a bril­liant beauty. The watch is driven by a skele­tonised au­to­matic move­ment with satin, cham­fered, blasted, brushed and pol­ished fin­ish­ing that of­fers a power re­serve of 50 hours. The pavé di­a­mond in­ner dial mir­rors the shape of the bezel. The RM 037 is also avail­able in TPZ black ce­ramic, in ATZ white ce­ramic and in white or red gold. The NTPT Full Set ver­sion shim­mers with 250 di­a­monds.
