Richard Mille Unveils RM HJ-01 Timepiece

Richard Mille introduced a series of new jewellery watches RM HJ-01. Cécile Guenat, Director of Creation and Development at Richard Mille, combined her background in fine jewellery with her fascination with Art Déco and envisioned the signature tonneau case in a completely new bejewelled avatar.

Four extraordinary watches feature striking visual lines and meticulous workmanship of precious materials. Three pieces are offered in white gold and one in red gold. Four stones define the main color for each watch: ruby, blue sapphire, purple sapphire, and emerald.  Each of these precious stones shows the concepts of volume, depth, curve, and line architecturally by configuring the Tonneau form.

The case alone takes more than a year to build and is made of black ceramic. The reference for black ceramic material is due to lightness and durability; this material has fine grains that provide a flawless finish much like Egyptian sculptures. The famous screws redesigned for this collection have gained a floral appearance. The case and bezel display a modern asymmetry with the interaction of gemstones of different colors and sizes.

The dial features diagonal lines that are curved inward. The diamond-shaped flange just below the crystal extends the lines of the bezel, providing structure and elegance, this elegant detail further narrowed the area of the hands and movement.  The buckle of Richard Mille RM HJ-01 is at least as fancy and elegant as the case. A leather strap complements the buckle, which is also equipped with precious stones. Discover Opulent Club on Apple News.
