In 2004, Richard Mille introduced the Caliber RM 005, which marked the debut of an automatic winding movement with a never before seen variable geometry rotor, therefore the rotor can be adapted to the wearer’s lifestyle in order to assure optimal performance.

In the quest for perfection and the newest innovations Richard Mille then took the RM 005 Calibre to the next stage; two years later and the RM 010 presented the RM 005 movement in a skeletonized version. The RM 010 watch case took an entire year of research, there are 202 separate machine operations including, 68 different stamping operations required for the three main components.

The design and execution of the watch demonstrates a complete conceptual approach to the movement case and dial. The ergonomic shape of the watch case is now a characteristic of the brand’s iconic visual identity.

Giving existing materials a new impulse by applying them in a new manner is completely second nature to Richard Mille’s philosophy and this new edition of RM 010 perfectly embodies Richard Mille’s quest for innovation.

Richard Mille will produce just 10 pieces of RM 010 Boutique Special.
