Ceramics are quickly becoming one of the most exciting materials in the watchmaking industry. Not long ago, your choices were black, gray, and possibly white, but recently you named a color and you might find a super hard, almost scratch-resistant material in it. So far, Hublot has dominated the color conversation with bright blues and reds, but now Richard Mille is turning their avant-garde hands to the softer RM 07-01 colored ceramics.
RM 07-01 is the brand’s more feminine interpretation of its iconic cutout, tonneau-shaped shell, and high-performance sports style. Although slimmer and more elegant, they are still very much like Richard Mille. This means visible screws, multilayer structure and top industrial appearance.
However, here, the color is center stage, not the flyback chronograph or tourbillon. First of all, the TZP ceramic case is available in light blue, lavender or pink, all of which are very feminine and summery. But this is just the beginning.
Each dial is made of four distinct parts, using materials of different colors. Of course, there are ceramics that match the case, but there are also textured rubber and guilloche patterns. Depending on the color of the case, there are different shades of orange, red and lavender or turquoise, black and blue. The guilloche pattern is particularly cute, with decorative plant art patterns, and different parts of the three models can be seen.
The dial itself is supported from below rather than from the side to achieve a floating effect. I guess you would call them flight dials. To complete the look-and add to the chaos of the rainbow-each best luxury replica watches has a two-tone strap that splits in half.
All three watches are equipped with a CRMA2 movement. Although there are fewer black and silver colors and a rose gold variable geometric oscillating weight, they have adopted a hollow bridge made of micro-sandblasted and plasma-treated titanium. Yes, it’s not just ceramics Richard Mille has a way.
To be honest, I like these works. They are too feminine for me-if they are bolder rather than soft, although I may be tempted, especially the 45.23 mm (ear to ear) size is a good choice. Even better, no piece of candy can be seen.
