FOR RICHARD MILLE, THE PERFECT TIMEPIECE MUST BE A TRUE EXERCISE IN THE CREATION OF COMPLEX, HOLISTIC RELATIONSHIPS THAT UNITE THE INTERIOR AND EXTERIOR OF THE WATCH.
The exterior issues of comfort offered by the ergonomic design approach and visually striking lines are important; yet they represent only the beginning of a long process in the creation of a timepiece. The interior of the watch, the entire movement, right down to seemingly inconsequential details of the shape and finish of screws, the architectural way the interior space of the case is utilized for the movement layout (which must also be a work of art on its own) is an aspect of equal importance to me. This is perhaps the essential heart of his approach – a view of watchmaking in which every detail in a timepiece is of crucial importance and easy solutions are not part of the working vocabulary. It is only when a complete unity of approach has been planned and executed in this manner that one can attempt to define and achieve perfection. These are core principles that define every timepiece within the Richard Mille collection.
Today, many of the guiding concepts and principles established by Richard Mille at that time have found their way into the mainstream of the industry, as witnessed by the fresh waves of inquisitiveness invigorating the present approach to visual and movement design, and the use of new materials in watchmaking.
Today’s collection offers everyone the watch of their dreams from unique and highly complex mechanical tours de force created for land, sea and air, to the most exquisite jewelry creations imaginable – and everything in between.
To experience the full glory of the timepieces, we invite you to visit our Boutiques or official retailers worldwide, who will happy to welcome you to the world of Richard Mille’s creations.
