Luxury watchmaker Richard Mille has teamed up with Academy Award-winning actress Natalie Portman to create a new timepiece for charity. Portman, who has been a worldwide partner of Richard Mille since 2011, teamed up with the manufacture to create the Tourbillon RM 19-01 Natalie Portman.
The timepiece features a diamond studded and encrusted tracery based upon the image of a spider. The dial showcases the RM19-01 manual winding tourbillon caliber assembled around a black rhodium-plated, 18K white gold black sapphire set baseplate.
The 18K white gold spider, which is set with diamonds, forms an integral part of the movement, with the abdomen of the spider actually supporting the bridges of the tourbillon, and its legs supporting the two winding barrels.
The Tourbillon RM 19-01 Natalie Portman will be limited to an edition of just 20 pieces worldwide. Sales will benefit Free the Children, a charity defending the rights of children worldwide.
According to the manufacture, we can look forward to seeing this piece on Portman’s wrist on the red carpet!
