To help launch its first women’s sports watch, the brand enlisted six inspirational athletes, including Aurora Straus, Margot Laffite, Nelly Korda, Nafi Thiam, Yuliya Levchenko and Ester Ledecká.
I don’t necessarily believe in the gender of the clock. I think very similarly as Suzanne Wong, editor and co-founder of Watch Femme, once said: “What is a women’s watch? It’s a woman’s watch.”
Sometimes I want to wear a chunky timepiece, and other times, I like a traditional “shrink and pink” ladies’ watch. I suspect many people would also like the smaller and brighter option. That’s why I’m ecstatic about Richard Mille’s new RM 07-04 Automatic Sport, a collection of six small and colorful timepieces.
One of the things I appreciate about Richard Mille is that the brand reaches out to female athletes and understands their need for a sports discount replica watches. Yes, Richard Mille has always been a cooperative company. But to launch the RM 07-04 Automatic Sport – its first women’s sports watch – the brand went a step further, partnering with six inspirational and influential athletes to share their experiences to help develop and define the pieces properties.
Specifically, the brand reached out to two motorsport legends – Aurora Strauss and Margot Laffite – as well as three-time Olympic ski gold medalist Ester Ledecká, top golfer Nelly Korda, and two track stars Yuliya Levchenko and Nafi Thiam . Based on their input, Richard Mills adapted these new models to meet the needs of its partners.
“Our partners are passionate individuals who are willing to break the mold of their respective disciplines to succeed,” Amanda Mille, director of brand and partnerships, said in a release. “Our relationship is built on respect, communication, trust and mutual admiration. These are the keys to our development. They help us to be perfect.”
The result is very light (only 36 grams including the strap) and ergonomic (the tonneau-shaped case measures 30.50 x 44.95 x 10.35mm). So no matter what kind of sport you play, you don’t need to worry about straining your wrists. women’s sports watch
Variety is the spice of life
Not all women have the same needs. According to Amanda Mille, Thiam, Ledecká and Levchenko needed a lighter. And Korda, Straus and Laffite wanted something more general.
Of course, since they come from Richard Mille, these watches are already visually striking. But to give the wearer even more options, the RM 07-04 Automatic Sport is available in six colours: black for the Carbon TPT model, and dark blue, cream, green, fuchsia and salmon pink for the Quartz TPT case.
For female lovers, the most influential is Haute Horlogerie. Each of these versions is equipped with a highly shock-resistant skeletonized in-house CRMA8 caliber automatic movement, meaning it is a sports watch that you can actually wear while exercising. Furthermore, this skeletonized display is fully integrated into the movement, allowing the wearer to appreciate the inner workings of the mechanism.
One of the most impressive achievements of the RM 07-04 Automatic Sport is the flange (the part of the case that supports the movement). Here, it works as if it were part of the movement.
The rest of the movement is no walk in the park, either. Salvador Arbona, technical director of movements at cheap Richard Mille, said, “We had to solve a triple technical challenge: the extreme skeletonization, the integration of the case into the movement, and the addition of the reverse function selector.”
