SIHH 2019: Richard Mille Bonbon Collection

According to Richard Mille Art Director Cécile Guenat, even saying the word Bonbon is enough for you to smile. The new Bonbon collection is memorable, elegant, bold and fun. The entire range is inspired by classic sweets from our childhood. From setting colorful precious stones and working with colored ceramics, to superimposing layers of materials and delicate enameling, the collection called on a vast array of skills and in-depth knowledge.

The Fruit line is a homage to the concept of sweets in six flavors: “Lemon” and “Strawberry” (RM 16-01), “Blueberry” and “Litchi” (RM 07-03), “Kiwi” and “Cherry” (RM 37-01). The remaining line consists of the Sweets collection with four models: the RM 07-03 “Cupcake,” RM 07-03 “Marshmallow,” RM 37-01 “Sucette”(Lollipop) and “RM 16-01 Réglisse” (Liquorice). RM used the turquoise colored case for the first time in its history for these models. The watches have 3000 hand painted and polished fruit figures on their dials.

“In addition to color-gradient cases made of Carbon TPT® combined with Quartz TPT® of a different hue for each model is an all-new turquoise color. To further enhance the 3,000 miniature sculptures are painted in acrylics and lacquered by hand.

A ‘sugar coating’ effect was achieved using powdered enamel and the fine sand employed in hourglasses,” the brand explains in a statement, the prices that range from $122,500 to $158,000.

Only 30 examples of each of the ten models will be produced. Richard Mille Bonbon watches will be presented to Richard Mille boutiques during the summer.   Discover Opulent Club on Apple News.
