This impressive timekeeping marvel, dubbed RM 53-02 Tourbillon Sapphire, has been introduced by the brilliant Swiss watchmakers from Richard Mille. The Swiss luxury watch-brand has represented a very limited edition their latest timepiece, only 10 pieces, due to the challenge posed by its triple-curved sapphire tonneau case. Richard Mille is the only one to date to achieve such a complex case design in sapphire.
The bezel, caseband and caseback were 100% crafted from a single block of sapphire crystal. The watch features a highly architectural movement and extremely sophisticated skeletonization. Its calibre’s volume express esresistance and lightness at once, while remaining exposed to the eye.
The team of Richard Mille spent years researching and experimenting before developing a sapphire case that will ensure adequate levels of strength and comfort. Just imagine this – each block of sapphire requires more than 1,000 hours of machining before that stunning case may adorn your wrist.
The RM 53-02 Tourbillon Sapphire also stands out for its unusual and interesting developments in the suspended movement, thanks to the use of braided cables that also allows this watch to benefit from a supreme anti-shock system.
Furthermore, Richard Mille’s newest timepiece also brags about a 70-hour power reserve – that means almost 3 days of counting each and every second under almost any conditions in breathtaking fashion.
