In 2001, Richard Mille created the first watch in the collection: the tourbillon RM 001. The range is now composed of almost 50 models, all designed, developed and produced by the Richard Mille brand.
From tourbillon calibers to automatic movements, Richard Mille timepieces translate a watchmaker’s vision of various industries, such as automobiles, sport, aeronautics and sailing.
Richard Mille has now decided to rethink the names of his watches in order to classify them in families according to their characteristic themes and complications, according to thewatchquote.com.
As an example, the models in the RM 011 family, automatic sport watches equipped with a flyback chronograph, will be renamed the RM 11-01, RM 11-02, while those in the RM 056 family of tourbillon calibers featuring sapphire crystal cases will now be known as the RM 56-01, RM 56-02 and so forth.
