    Founded upon the three crucial elements of technical innovation, artistry and culture of fine watchmaking, Richard Mille has become a dominant player of the watch industry. With the creation of the RM001 tourbillon in 2001, the manufacture stunned the watchmaking sphere through its forward-looking approach towards its designs and use of innovative materials.

    As one of the first sporting figure to have joined the Richard Mille family, the manufacture celebrated the 10th year anniversary of their collaboration with Formula One racing driver Felipe Massa by launching the present RM 011 Automatic Flyback Chronograph.

    Born in Sao Paulo in 1981, Felipe Massa erupted onto the Formula One scene rapidly, making his racing debut at only 21 years old. Acquiring a reputation for being fast, Massa joined the Ferrari racing team and partnered with the legendary Michael Schumacher during the 2006 season. Throughout his career, Felipe Massa was the first Brazilian racing driver to win on home soil since Ayrton Senna, and was able through his determination and sportsmanship to win the hearts of a nation as well as the Formula One community.
