SYMBOLS FOR GREAT FORTUITOUSNESS AND LUCK

The Phoenix, a supernatural bird, was commonly referred to as the ‘King of Birds’ embodying the five virtues of benevolence, righteousness, propriety, wisdom, and sincerity as well as being symbolic for the Empress. It was known never to harm either a single insect nor blade of grass, eating and drinking nothing but bamboo seeds and sweet spring water. The dragon has always appeared in a magical variety of forms; long or short bodied, small or gigantic in size. Its nature could be both secretive yet active, and it inhabited all areas of the universe from the heights above to the depths below. Since they were able to travel between the skies and earth, dragons were considered the mounts of heavenly deities.

Main characteristics

Created from 3N rose gold, these legendary figures inhabiting the interior of the movement are carved and incised entirely by hand. Strictly limited edition of 15 pieces in 18K white or red gold.

01
PHOENIX AND DRAGON ADORN THE MOVEMENT
Special miniature tools needed to be made for the specific artistry required in the physical realization of these two creatures. To increase the realism of these special animals, a long and painstaking process of hand finished micro painting was executed, also including the unseen parts of these two marvelous entities.

CASE

In the world of horology, the cases of Richard Mille watches are currently considered as the most difficult to manufacture. This tripartite tonneau-shaped case is fully curved, which enables the watch to be ergonomic and comfortable, yet time consuming during its production and requiring a high level of quality control. These integral front and back curves are an essential part of the Richard Mille watchcase and demand ultimate precision and accuracy for their perfect execution. The front bezel and caseband have to be perfectly and delicately assembled to prevent the sapphires from any damage. The manufacturing specifications required to achieve this required one year of research and development. The characteristic tonneau shape of the RM 57-01 requires no less than 47 stamping and 21 striking operations. The machining lasts 4 hours and 255 milling procedures are required to produce a single RM 57-01 case with a further day spent on finishing which entails grinding, satin brushing and polishing. The tripartite case is water-resistant to 50 meters thanks to two Nitril O-ring seals. It is assembled using 20 grade 5 titanium spline screws and abrasion-resistant washers in 316L stainless steel.

FREE SPRUNG BALANCE WITH VARIABLE INERTIA

The free-sprung balance provides better reliability in the event of shocks, movement assembly and disassembly. It also guarantees better chronometric results over an extended period of time. The regulator index is eliminated and a more accurate and repeatable adjustment is possible thanks to 4 small adjustable weights located directly on the balance.
