    Accompanied by a Richard Mille presentation box and certificate.

    Further to the immense success of the RM 006, an experimental model featuring a movement plate in carbon fibre, this innovation has been fully exploited and introduced to the other tourbillons under the Richard Mille marque. The RM 003-V2 replaces the RM 003-1, housing a movement in carbon nanofibre. The isotope possesses high mechanical, physical and chemical stability and can withstand a wide range of temperatures producing excellent chronometric performance.
