RICHARD MILLE RM 020 TOURBILLON POCKET WATCH
This pocket timepiece is Richard Mille’s unique reinterpretation of a classic. Without sacrificing technical mastery, the RM 020 combines 18th-century horological values with 21st-century technology and aesthetics. It’s constructed entirely from modern materials and is the first pocket watch to make use of a non-metallic baseplate made out of carbon nanofibre, a material originally utilised in US Air Force jets that can withstand extreme conditions and temperatures. The RM 020 also features a double-barrel tourbillon movement that provides 10 days of power. The construction of the chain and crown attachment on the RM 020 is a tremendous technical feat as it takes 580 separate operations to produce. There are no fewer than 189 component parts in the RM 020, which can also be used as a pendulette de bureau when attached to a desk stand. All versions have a central caseband in titanium, with a choice of both front and back bezels in either red gold, white gold or titanium.
