Owned by Richard Mille, the world’s top mechanical watch brand developed the most precise tourbillon watch with revolutionary watchmaking technology.
Basic introduction edit
Swiss watch brands
Richard Mille, the founder of the brand named after himself, once said, “My goal is to make the” Formula 1 “of the watch industry.” By the end of 2005, nine Richard Mille watches had released. From the design concept, the watchmaking materials to the appearance and performance of each part in the table, it has a very close relationship with the precision design of Formula One racing cars.
The inspiration of the watch’s shock absorber and the function selection key inspired by the vehicle. The function selection key of the clock is the original technology of Richard Mille.
It is like a gear of a vehicle, with three positions of winding, timing, and neutral. Area, which reduces the impact on the movement of the movement due to winding or timing.
Brand Story Editor
In 2001, Richard Mille launched the first wristwatch, RM001. The product became a thunderous thunder when it was first released, and gained international fame and success.
Up to the end of 2005, the nine Richard Mille watches that have been on the market, from the design concept, the watchmaking materials to the appearance and performance of each part of the watch, have a close relationship with the precision design of Formula 1.

The function selection key of the clock is the original technology of Richard Mille. It is like a gear of a vehicle, with three positions of winding, timing, and neutral.
In 2006, Richard Mille presented a new concept, incorporating modern design concepts, inheriting breakthrough watchmaking technology, and launching six new mechanical watches.
At the same time, Richard Mille selected as the BEST OF THE BEST watch by Robb Report & Collection.
As of January 2010, Richard Mille has launched a total of 21 models with 100 models and has exclusive stores in Legendale Hotel and Shanghai Hang Lung Plaza in Mainland China. Among them, Legendale Hotel Beijing is the largest Richard Mille in the world. Flagship store.
RM 037 edit
Richard Mille’s new RM 037 watch with CRMA1 automatic movement has a newly designed coreless crown system. The system design must add a core to the campaign to install the crown. Since this core directly connected to the change, if the head hits, the change will be damaged. Richard Mille then invented a coreless crown system that, in addition to strengthening the watch’s shock resistance, would also reduce the risk of losing the crown.
RM 037 designed to cope with extreme environments.
The steel case, bezel, and bottom take a total of six days and can make through multiple stamping processes. After 255 operations, more than five hours of polishing considered. Initially completed, and then 45 hours later on the brand mark.
The three-layer case has a water resistance of 50 meters and a power reserve of 50 hours.
They made of Titalyt®-treated micro-blasted grade 5 titanium alloy, which guarantees the rigidity and smoothness of the bottom plate, which is critical to the first operation of the gear train.
The plywood is also made of grade 5 titanium alloy and finely sandblasted and black PVD coated. Hollow floor and plywood undergo independent and extensive validation tests to ensure optimal strength requirements.
The RM 037 movement uses a new variable inertia automatic disc that can adjust according to the intensity of the wearer’s activity. Adjustment is achieved by sliding the two hammers into the correct position and fixing them with spline screws.
When the two rams approach each other, the inertia of movement increases, so the barrel is accelerated to wind up; when the two hammers placed at the two ends of the automatic disc, the inertia is reduced, which slows down the winding of the barrel.
Richard Mille uses modern micro-mechanical engineering to apply special flat-head screws to the CRMA1 movement. This particular screw has six eyes on the screw head, which based on the concept of a snake-eye screw and mainly used for assembly of parts that have precise requirements on torque.
For specific movements, this type of screw provides a secure fit while allowing rotation of the date and function display.
In essence, this type of screws can use to control the screw torque during assembly battery, so the screws are durable during assembly and disassembly because they will not be damaged. Each screw has to go through more than 20 different processes before being inserted into the movement.
