Prestige Hong Kong - Tic Talk - - INDUSTRY | AUCTIONS -

The Richard Mille RM56-02, which was cre­ated for the Watches & Won­ders event in Hong Kong in 2014, sold for a cool HK$14.5 mil­lion at Sotheby’s Im­por­tant Watches Au­tumn Sale in Hong Kong last Oc­to­ber. One of only 10 such pieces, this skele­tonised marvel is the first tour­bil­lon with a full sap­phire case, the three parts of which were painstak­ingly cut and milled from blocks of solid sap­phire

– a process that can take up to 40 solid days. The RM56-02 also comes with a trans­par­ent strap in an elas­tic, wa­ter­proof ma­te­rial known as Aero­space

Nano, plus a base­plate in grade 5 ti­ta­nium.
