LIMITED EDITION TIMEPIECE DESIGN BY NATALIE PORTMAN

Natalie Portman, the famed oscar-winning American actress and worldwide partner of the brand since 2011, unveils the first watch designed and created together with Richard Mille, embodied in the Tourbillon RM 19-01 Natalie Portman. Recognized as a brilliant woman in her public as well as private life, she is a multi-talented woman of high accomplishments, having graduated from Harvard in psychology in addition to her roles at the theater and on screen.

For this first collaboration, Natalie Portman set her mind on an image combining strong associations and complex undertones expressed by a diamond studded and encrusted tracery based upon the image of a spider.

The RM19-01 manual winding tourbillon caliber is assembled around a black rhodium-plated, 18K white gold black sapphire set baseplate, a first for Richard Mille. The spider within the movement, also in 18K white gold and delicately set with diamonds, forms an integral part of the movement, with the abdomen of the spider actually supporting the bridges of the tourbillon, and its legs supporting the two winding barrels.

This aesthetic achievement was only possible after a long and difficult machining process followed by many hours of hand polishing, finishing and the guiding eye of the watchmaker working in harmony with the centuries old skills of the jewel setter- together creating the physical manifestation of Natalie’s personal vision for this unique and limited edition timepiece.

Available in 20 pieces worldwide, this novel ladies’ creation will be worn by Natalie Portman at several events worldwide and is available for purchase at the Richard Mille boutique on level 2 of The Shops at Crystals.

OMEGA De Ville Trésor

He’ll never forget the moment you give him a striking timepiece such as the OMEGA De Ville Trésor.  Characterised by its thin, golden case, the De Ville Trésor of the late 1940s was named such because it safeguarded the legendary 30mm calibre within. More than half a century later, the De Ville Trésor is reintroduced with one of the most advanced mechanical movements the brand has ever unveiled.

F1 Racing Lovers Dream Watch

For the man in your life with exception taste and a love for racing, this sporty RM 50-01 G Sensor Lotus timepiece from Richard Mille is in perfect harmony with the world of F1 racing and a dream come true to the thrill seeker in your life. 

Richard Mille Watches is the official partner the Lotus F1 Team since 2013, and this fruitful collaboration on F1 tracks around the globe has given birth to the first tourbillon watch dedicated to the team and especially one of the Lotus F1 Team drivers, Romain Grosjean for whom Richard Mille created this new tourbillon driven timepiece. Although racing under the French flag in F1, Romain was born in Geneva and holds dual French-Swiss nationality. He was the 2007 F3 Euroseries drivers’ champion, the inaugural GP2 Asia Series champion, the 2011 GP2 Asia Series and GP2 Series champion and is the first and only – as of July 2013 – two-time GP2 champion holding both the GP2 Asia series and main GP2 series titles simultaneously. In 2012, Romain Grosjean returned to F1 with the Lotus F1 Team.
 
This exceptionally sporting timepiece is in perfect harmony with the world of F1 racing, starting with its mechanical heart, a manual winding tourbillon chronograph caliber with mechanical G-force sensor. The new movement design is founded on a concept of long-term reliability achieved through studies on the profile of the barrel and pinion teeth profiles. These new profiles optimize the maximum transmission and regularity of power through the movement’s going train in a similar manner to those profiles found in optimal engine transmission gearing. The architectural layout of the modern movement design details a coherent and rational chronograph mechanism that avoids any unnecessary waste of energy and motion, through the application of technical solutions to optimize its operation. This is accomplished through the extensive use of materials such as titanium and the perfected synchronization of different interacting parts. Parallel to the best racing machines, the movement is assembled on a rigid baseplate of grade 5 titanium, offering exceptional stability and improving the functioning of the movement. In motorsport, the driver must obtain maximum information about his car and his performance. Based on this observation, the RM 50-01 uses a function indicator which shows whether the movement is in Winding, Neutral or Handsetting mode, with the addition of a mechanical G-force sensor, a mechanism able to transcribe the range of G’s endured by the driver during deceleration phases. In total this requires more than 500 components for the creation of this ultimate racing tool.
 
The RM 50-01 has a case created from carbon NTPT® with a choice of caseband in 5N red gold or carbon NTPT®. This new carbon material, a Richard Mille exclusivity, consists of more than 600 layers, each 30 microns thick of woven carbon filaments that are compressed and heated to achieve an unbelievable level of strength and rigidity. These exceptional timepieces will be produced in a limited edition of 30 watches, each accompanied by hand assembled 1/5th scale model of the 2014 Lotus F1 racing car.
