A FLIGHTWORTHY INSTRUMENT
The superlative quality of a Richard Mille watch is in equal measure due to its architecture and the materials it is made of. Naturally, it would be impossible to design watches capable of resisting extreme conditions without using constituents that were themselves created to handle punishing demands. In capitalising on engineering materials—particularly from the fields of aeronautics and Formula 1—and testing their potential applications in a watch movement or its housing, Richard Mille brings into being watches whose precision, lightness and reliability are intimately bound to the materials employed.
The RM 21-01 Tourbillon Aerodyne is entirely true to this lineage and draws on the influence of aeronautics.
