Richard Mille is delighted to be associated with this trade fair, which is now considered to be one of the most important and influential in Asia.
Richard Mille has offered its enthusiastic support to the Fondation de la Haute Horlogerie in promoting this event dedicated to watchmaking culture and Swiss expertise. The brand sees the event as a highly fitting tribute to the thousands of collectors in the region who are passionate about complex mechanisms and Swiss Haute Horlogerie.
For the fair’s second edition, the watchmaker from Les Breuleux in Switzerland, will oversee a 300 m² boutique set up for the occasion in the heart of the HKCEC. The famous glass sculpture representing the calibre RM008 marks the monumental entrance that leads into a luxurious space, adorned with ebony, leather, glass and steel with an atmosphere of calm refinement – an ideal environment for visitors to observe the detail and technique of Richard Mille watches. They will also be able to admire the richness of the 2014 collection and discover the many facets of the brand.
2014 is the Year of the Woman for Richard Mille, with a strong focus on the feminine side in the RM 07-01 and RM 037 calibres as well as the RM 19-01 Natalie Portman and RM 51-01 Tiger and Dragon Michelle Yeoh.
New products have also been developed with the brand’s partners from the world of top-level sports: the calibre RM 36-01 G-sensor tourbillon with Sébastien Loeb, the world-famous rally driver; the RM 011 and RM 50-01 tourbillon with Romain Grosjean, the official driver of the famous British Formula One Lotus F1 team; the RM 35-01 mechanical calibre with Rafael Nadal, the current tennis number one; the RM 61-01 with Yohan Blake, the world athletics champion; and finally the new RM 38-01 G-Sensor with Bubba Watson, the American golfer and winner of two Augusta Masters.
No less complex in their approach are the RM 60-01 Regatta and the RM 11-02 GMT, an enhanced version of the iconic RM 011. And in another more poetic vein altogether, the RM 63-01 Dizzy Hands, which allows the wearer to stop time at will…
In a world exclusive to Watches & Wonders, Richard Mille will present two new tourbillon calibres in a limited edition – a key feature of this new collection that is bound to arouse particular interest.
Head to Hong Kong between 30th September and 2nd October to discover the new Richard Mille collection.
