Throughout its rather short but fast growth as an industry leader in the luxury watch market, Richard Mille continues to incorporate a variety of cultural aspects into its collection of timepieces for its international clientele. The use of traditional Japanese inspiration seems to be a reoccurring theme behind some of the world’s most expensive and exclusive Richard Mille models. Richard Mille is proud to announce the newest addition to its line of highly-desirable timepieces, the samurai-inspired RM 47 Tourbillon. The all-new RM 47 Tourbillon features a classic square case design crafted from lightweight TPZ black ceramic with 18k Gold accents. Protecting the RM47 caliber, the samurai armor created from 3N yellow gold has been entirely hand-engraved by Pierre-Alain Lozeron to accentuate the skeleton dial design.
Delivering power to the new limited-edition RM47 is Richard Mille’s in-house Caliber RM47 manual-winding tourbillon movement, which suspends itself from grade 5 titanium baseplates and provides a lengthy 72-hour power reserve. A sapphire backcase allows for a closer look at the inner workings of the movement, while the outer portion includes individually numbered engravings to signify the special 75-piece release from Richard Mille. Tying into Richard Mille’s functional everyday feel, the RM47 Tourbillon comes fit with a comfortable black rubber strap and matching deployant clasp. The all-new Richard Mille RM47 Tourbillon will be available at Haute Luxury Watches soon, serious inquiries only.
