Richard Mille unveiled their new women’s RM 71-01 timepiece in Paris at the Palais de Tokyo’s swanky Monsieur Bleu restaurant overlooking the Seine. Called the RM 71-01 Automatic Tourbillon Talisman, it is the first collection overseen from top to bottom by Richard Mille’s Cécile Guenat, the watchmaker’s director of ladies’ collections.
Each of the 10 watches in the collection features a variation on the mother-of-pearl, onyx, and diamond settings. The highlight of this new collection is not only its unique design conceived by Guenat, but the watchmaker’s first-ever, in-house automatic tourbillon movement, the Calibre CRMT1—the brand’s 8th in-house calibre. The movement is largely made out of grade 5 titanium, make it ultra-light and compact, while still offering the typical robustness that Richard Mille’s calibers boast. It measures just 6.2 millimeters in thickness and 8 grams in weight.
Visually speaking, the 71-01 is an eye-catching stunner. And just as its name suggest, we’re certain that the 50 lucky buyers of the watch—priced at USD 425,000—will enjoy the good luck that each of these highly coveted, magical timepieces will bring. The RM 71-01 Automatic Tourbillon Talisman will be available with a price tag of roughly $405,000.
