Richard Mille is a Swiss company that is 21 years old. However, such a “young” age does not prevent the production of expensive watches, which, despite their cost, always find buyers. We have collected the most luxurious models on the market for you.
RM 26-01 Tourbillon Panda
Panda cannot spoil the design a priori, even when it comes to the most luxurious watch models. This is exactly what the designers of the manufactory thought when developing a new masterpiece of jewellery art. For the manufacture of the tourbillon calibre, black onyx was used. The stone was not chosen by chance: it is believed that it is able to absorb bad energy, maintaining the emotional state of its owner.
The panda, made of white gold and integrated into the tourbillon, is encrusted with diamonds and black sapphires. The bear is in its natural habitat – a bamboo forest, where all the leaves and stems are handmade from yellow gold.
RM 11-03 Ultimate Edition
Perhaps this is the most “sporty” watch from our selection, which, however, does not make their cost more affordable. The watch is distinguished by an unusual colour: on the bezel, carbon alternates with turquoise quartz, forming bright stripes. In total, 200 watches saw the light of day. The supply is very limited. This means it will be impossible to win the watch in a Play Amo casino tournament, lottery or elsewhere. You will be required to pay a large amount of money for this model.
RM 51-02 Manual Winding Tourbillon Diamond Twister
This masterpiece is inspired by the spiral pattern, resulting in a watch with a hypnotic effect. Arcs encrusted with diamonds circulate from the tourbillon carriage and then smoothly pass to the gold bezel. But it depends on the specific model: some, while retaining the sparkling fireworks on the dial, are distinguished by the classic setting of diamonds on the bezel.
Even the crown of the Diamond Twister is adorned with three rows of diamonds, so the attention to detail cannot be denied by the designers.
RM 52-01 Blue Carbon TPT Skull
Is there anything better to remind us of the frailty and transience of life than a skull – one of the main symbols of death? But the designers of Richard Mille did not just use it to decorate the model. The skull has literally been integrated into the structure of the movement itself, and its outlines are shaped by the board and bridges of the Grade 5 titanium movement.
The cost of such a watch with a skull-decorated dial varies depending on the model and year of manufacture, but it is unlikely that you will be able to find a copy for less than 600 thousand dollars.
RM 56-02 Tourbillon Sapphire
The undisputed leader is the RM 56-02 Tourbillon Sapphire watch. This model can be called the standard of transparent watches: the three-piece case and many details are made of sapphire. Interestingly, this material is distinguished not only by crystal transparency but also by exceptional strength (9 out of 10 on the Mohs scale), that is, it can only be scratched with a diamond.
You can buy such a masterpiece of watchmaking art for at least $2 million. That is, the cost is comparable not only to luxury real estate in the most expensive cities in the world but also to a small island.
