Richard Mille RM 71-02 Automatic Tourbillon Talisman Collection

Two years after the black and white shades of the RM 71-01, the brand new RM 71-02 Automatic Tourbillon Talisman collection encrusted with a spectrum of precious stones in the rainbow tones of the golden age of disco.

Comprised of ten models, each presented in a limited edition of 7 pieces, the collection is somehow inspired by the club culture of the 1970s and the birth of electronic and disco music.

Cécile Guenat, Creative and Development Director at Richard Mille, comments: “The intense glamour of the disco era resided in a multiplication of colors and textures. I had to find a way to make this idea tangible. Working with the stones themselves proved to be a considerable challenge. Because stones of very similar hues can end up looking completely different depending on their size and the type of setting.”

Depending on the model, the watches contain anywhere from 817 to 971 stones. Diamonds, sapphires, rubies, tsavorites, peridots, lapis lazuli, chrysolemon, malachite, mother-of-pearl, turquoise, pink opal and jasper are just some of the colourful elements used by Cécile Guenat. They all contain the self-winding in-house CRMT1 tourbillon calibre with a diamond-set oscillating weight.

All models are housed in 52.20 x 34.40 x 12.50 mm white gold cases and powered by the self-winding CRMT1 calibre that was originally developed for the RM 71-01 Automatic Tourbillon Talisman collection in 2018, an extraordinary technological feat given the movement‘s slender 6.2 mm width and weight of 8 grams. 

The watches are matched to a complete series of bracelets specially designed for each model. richardmille.com. Discover Opulent Club on Apple News.
