Richard Mille honors Japanese culture with the RM 47 Tourbillon 'Time of the Samurai'

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.
