Richard Mille RM 07-01 Automatic Color Ceramic Watch

The latest collection from Richard Mille is the RM 07-01 Colored Ceramic. Colorful, fun and refreshing, it is inspired by the Memphis Design Movement, an Italian 1980s art and architectural movement. The new Richard Mille RM 07-01 Automatic Color Ceramic Watch defies conventional watch design, using contrasting colours, shapes and materials to seriously interpret the idea of fun and light-heartedness.

The diversity and freedom of Memphis design is particularly fascinating. Its creators’ goal at the time was to break away from the constraints of modernist aesthetics by fusing Art Deco geometry with Pop Art-style colors. Central to the design process for the collection was the juxtaposition of colors in materials such as ceramic and patterned rubber. The technical team then enriched their work by incorporating the ancient guilloché technique into the dial. This creates a symbiosis of ultra-modern and traditional watchmaking.

Making hand-guilloché dials is an art form that requires special hand machines and the hands of expert craftsmen with decades of experience. Richard Mille incorporates this handcrafted technique. Rather than employing familiar traditional guilloche patterns, the RM 07-01 colored ceramic uses these techniques in bold ways, carving themes inspired by Memphis design and the Richard Mille universe. The pattern is engraved on a white gold section and is surrounded by ceramic decorative details, colorful rubber appliques and diamond-set elements. PVD-treated gray white gold brings out all these elements. mens replica watch

The new RM 07-01 collection is available in three summer-inspired colors, including Blush, Lilac and Powder Blue Ceramic, which have been carefully selected to create an elegant contrast with the other hues that adorn the watch. The Tetragonal Zirconia Polycrystalline (TZP) ceramic used by Richard Mille for the bezel and case back is renowned for its lightness, strength and color-retaining properties. Even after a long period of time, the shades of this delicate material remain perfectly balanced and do not fade. The special sintering process also gives the ceramic an ideal matte effect. Case dimensions are 31.40 x 45.23 x 11.85mm

These ceramic bezels are fixed to a white gold micro-blasted case with polished pillars and protect the CRMA2 movement, an automatic winding made of skeletonized, micro-blasted and plasma-treated grade 5 titanium In-house movement. It features a variable-inertia balance wheel for perfect long-term performance and a variable-geometry 5N 18K red gold oscillating weight that adjusts the winding of the watch according to the wearer’s movements. The movement provides a power reserve of 50 hours.

The juxtaposition of colors gives the RM 07-01 a strong personality, but what takes the entire design to another level is the contrast of the color blocks and different surface textures with the guilloche dial sections and the delicate lines of the movement architecture. In this way, they are thoroughly modern in every aspect of their design, material selection and color scheme, but here they are blended with 18th-century patterns and decorative methods, evoking a feeling of elegance and magic. fake watches for sale
