RICHARD MILLE is proud to be a brand with many outstanding male and female athletes as brand friends. The members who join the family of best friends have always been the core of the brand’s continuous breakthrough of limitations and courage.
To celebrate the launch of the first women’s sports watch-the RM 07-04 automatic winding sports watch, RICHARD MILLE invited six inspiring and influential female athletes: racing driver Aurora Straus, French racing driver and navigator Margot Laffite, golfer Nelly Korda, heptathlete Nafi Thiam, high jumper Yuliya Levchenko and snowboarder Ester Ledecká share their personal experiences to develop and interpret the characteristics of this watch.
Two representatives of motor sports, a world’s second-ranked golfer, two dazzling stars in track and field, and a three-time Olympic gold medalist, these six friends of the Richard Mille brand proudly wear the new RM Six watches in the 07-04 Automatic Movement Collection.
The development of the RM 07-04 self-winding sports watch took three years before and after, during which many difficulties were overcome. This self-made skeletonized automatic movement has a small and compact structure. While ensuring impact resistance, it perfectly integrates the case with the movement and allows a clear view of the inner workings of the watch.
One of the notable parts is the scale ring, which the brand considers to be designed as one with the movement. At first glance, the scale circle is integrated with the movement, and the overall structure is balanced by the use of titanium alloy elements across the surface and the integration of the hollow display window of the function selector. Such a bold structural design visually creates an extraordinary sense of dynamism.
The launch of this series of six watches symbolizes RICHARD MILLE’s relentless pursuit of ultimate versatility and continuity of works in the ever-growing field of ladies’ watches. As a result, elegance and sophistication are perfectly combined with ultra-high performance and sports prowess.
Salvador Arbona, technical director of the movement, explained: “In the process we had to solve three technical challenges: the extreme skeletonization, the integration of the case and the movement, and the inverted function selector.” richard mille bubba watson replica
