With Richard Mille instruction manual, original fitted presentation box and outer packaging.
A veteran in the watch industry, Richard Mille began his career in 1974 as a commercial director for one of the world's largest watch companies where he remained for 20 years. In 2000 he started developing his own timepieces, inspired by the perfection found in the automobile and aviation industries. His line of watches includes a specially developed tourbillon escapement, the innovative technical choices applied to the design of this sophisticated watch required thousands of hours to develop. In August 2001 the first watch, the Tourbillon RM 001, was launched followed by the Tourbillon RM 002 the same year, a further improvement of its predecessor featuring a titanium plate and function indicator. In 2002, Mille introduced the Tourbillon RM 003 with dual-time indicator.
Richard Mille timepieces offer a very different conceptual approach in the luxury watch field. His goal is to be to the watch industry what Ferrari and McLaren are to the automotive field: technologically advanced, innovative and performance oriented.
The materials used for Richard Mille watches are high-tech, including titanium, ceramic (for the cap jewels) and ARCAP (an alloy with superb mechanical properties of endurance and resistance to distortion). The cases are ergonomically curved and feature lateral ribs for extra strength.
Richard Mille's RM10 is fitted with the automatic manufacture movement RM 005-S, produced and assembled at the renowned AP Renaud & Papi factory in Le Locle. It features a so-called rotor with variable geometry with the option of adapting the winding to the wearers activity level, such as sports or leisure. By adjusting the six positional setting of the ribs placement, the rotors inertia is modified, either speeding up the winding process in the case of minimal arm and hand movements, or slowing it down when high activity sports are pursued.
