Richard Mille also created the hollow dial, including the clever layering of sapphire crystals and the intricate movement, which are all done by hand, which explains the amazing price.
Fancy material Richard Mille watches do not use steel or gold materials.
Not only does his work look like something from Starship Enterprise, but it is also made of very advanced avant-garde materials. These materials are aluminum and carbon nanotubes hardened with ceramics (NTPT® carbon) or gold fused with carbon and quartz (gold carbon TPT®). You will usually find these materials being made into airplanes or Formula One racing cars.
And because handling these materials is very tricky, it means that random carbon patterns are generated along the way, which means that no two watch cases are the same, so really, every Richard Mille watch is unique!
From the satin finish on the bridge deck to the polished pivot, each watch is hand-finished with incredible precision.
Master movement Richard Mille's movement also uses top materials such as grade 5 titanium and aluminum. He understands that modern watchmakers want to see the operation of mechanical devices. He has mastered the tourbillon, and now every movement he creates is intuitive and complex.
