Richard Mille have indeed dumbfounded the business – this time with another women watch, the RM 19-02 Tourbillon Fleur. Robot? Lovely Complication? Call it what you will – it is a stunner.
Last year had something reasonable of “flower themed” women watches, including Breguet’s Secret de la Reine, an especially eye-satisfying Girard-Perregaux Cat’s Eye model complete with a weaving like peony theme on its dial and obviously, the Christophe Claret Margot watch which proposed to answer the sentimental situation of “He adores me… . He cherishes me not”.
Now Richard Mille have carried a botanical plan to their women assortment, with a piece which gives its wearer an entrancing mechanical display – at the same time, in spite of its sensitive craftsman feel it has still been fabricated utilizing similar forefront materials and innovation which portray each watch which bears the Richard Mille marque and it is along these lines as extreme as old boots too.
For this model time-advising becomes auxiliary to the extraordinary tourbillon which settles underneath its flower shield. Like clockwork (or on interest through the push piece at 9 o’clock) the magnolia petals gradually open, uncovering the covered flying tourbillon under, which ascends by 1mm, imitating the movement of a blossom looking for pollination.
The making of this unobtrusive, however profoundly emotive transformation required a complex framework which utilized 5 switches which encompass the underside of the petals and, an auxiliary framework which is utilized to raise the flying tourbillon utilizing a long pinion. A different winding barrel gives energy to the action with the goal that the exactness of the time sign on the upper dial remains unaffected.
The RM 19-02 Tourbillon Fleur development has a baseplate and extensions built from Grade 5 titanium. Turning the piece over uncovers its plain yet excellent engineering. Running at a recurrence of 21,600 vph it flaunts a Glucydur balance, in-assembled kif stun ingestion and a Nivarox balance spring. An effective winding framework which utilizes a Richard Mille barrel pawl framework guarantees proficient winding and an idiot proof crown force component forestalls overwinding.
The tonneau case is no less complex than the mechanics. At 45.4mm x 38.3mm x 12.55mm it is liberal, however keenly intended to bend to fit even a modest wrist. Measurements are significant at Richard Mille, and which is all well and good. With extensive interest in innovative work they have watchmaking down to an exact and demanding arrangement of cycles, every one of which requests flawlessness. For this model 250 individual processing activities are expected to create the case and that is without completing – this requires an entire day during which the granulating, coating and cleaning is accomplished. For the individuals who may decide to wear the Tourbillon Fleur while washing (kindly don’t) two Nitril D-ring seals guarantee water protection from 50m.
As you may have seen the RM 19-02 Tourbillon Fleur has been given a liberal covering of jewels on its bezel, case-sides and dial – while different brands would advance the weight/size/number and so forth of valuable stones utilized unusually there is no notice of them up until this point, yet then Richard Mille like to specify weight-saving compounds, enhancement and scraped spot safe washers … .. not diamonds.
Richard Mille RM 19-02 Tourbillon Fleur will be a restricted version of 30 pieces.
