Richard Mille introduces a gem set NTPT carbon in its newest edition of female inspired watches, the RM 07-01 and the RM 037. It must be known that this kind of craftsmanship opened new challenges for the brand, who has been primarily known for its gorgeous skeletonized movement aimed primarily for its male demography. But these two new watches somehow changed course, while still retaining Richard Mille's distinct aesthetic codes.
The NTPT carbon is a prominent feature in most of Richard Mille's collection, endowing watches with a unique, masculine appearance. But in RM 07-01 and RM 037, the brand successfully reveals the material's feminine side, thanks to the glittering gem set addition that adds a divine sparkle to the usually stark models. This exclusive design is available for a limited time only.
Bearing a sporty aesthetic paired with unsurpassed glamor, these new female edition watches comes with Richard Mille’s signature characteristics. RM 07-01, for instance, has been the highlight of the luxury watchmaker's 2014 collection, boasting of an intricate tonneau shaped case crafted from white ceramic and accentuated with red gold. It possessed a skeletonized dial paired with an automatic caliber, the CRMA2, specifically developed for this design. The beautiful white color glimmers with the decorative diamond set inner dial that mirrors the same tonneau shape, clad with red gold hour and minute hands, plus droplet hour batons to further accentuate its dramatic look. Inside, its layers of gears have been crafted from lightweight grade 5 titanium. Among its key highlights: the variable inertia roter which can be adjusted according to the wearer's preference.
This time, the open-worked watch comes with a darker shade paired with the durability and robustness of the NTPT carbon. This means that special machines for milling, usually embedded with excellent diamond tools, are required to create the proper mitraillage which is necessary for setting the inner pave dial. The models still possess beautifully constructed hand prongs in either white or red gold, which are produced separately and are inserted around dial–about 250 gems are embedded on a full set model.
The RM 037 houses a skeletonized automatic movement caliber CRMA1 which hours, minutes, oversize date features and an adjustable rotor. It comes with a function selector and a 50-hour power reserve. On the other hand, the RM 07-01 comes with caliber CRMA2, offering the similar functions as CRMA1, minus the date and the functions selector.
