    With Richard Mille undated Warranty, instruction manual, leather wallet, fitted presentation box and outer packaging.
    Richard Mille began his career in 1974 as a commercial director for one of the world’s largest watch companies. In 2000, he started developing his timepieces inspired by the perfection found in automobile and aviation industries. The innovative technical choices applied to the design of his sophisticated watches require thousand of hours to develop. In 2002, Richard Mille introduced the Tourbillon RM 003 with dual-time indicator, such as the present lot.
