ABOUT Richard Mille
A story is told of Richard Mille, that in the early 2000s when he launched the company, when doing presentations, he would throw the watch he was wearing on his wrist into the room, causing it to crash with a loud thud, before walking into the room himself, announcing, “Bonjour tout le monde!”
This is exactly how the story of Richard Mille continues today; his watches go before him. His watches stand testament to themselves. His watches stand far ahead of their time. This is because his watches bring together a level of traditional watchmaking techniques, merged with space-age materials and standards of manufacturing that has yet to be seen in the industry. Which in turn has resulted in some of the most astonishing timepieces of this era that boast extreme performance and lightness.
It is why world class athletes such as Felipe Massa and Rafael Nadal are able to wear Richard Mille watches in the heat of competition without the watches getting in the way and while remaining reliable.
Richard Mille explains that it is passion that pushes him to continue to create watches at such a level. This same passion has now gathered a cult following around the man and his watches that counts some of the world’s most seasoned collectors, Hollywood elite and royalty as lifetime members.
