The Dizzy Hands is Richard Mille’s take on the notion of the suspension of time. When the pusher in the center of the crown is pressed once, the sapphire glass dial on which the numerals are printed begins to rotate counterclockwise, as the hour hand moves clockwise, both at different speeds. This serves to suspend the indications of time until the button is pushed again, restoring the watch to the current time. The automatic Caliber CRMA3 is a new movement for Richard Mille, with principles taken from chronograph design, with a column wheel activating the rotation that suspends time. The concept for the watch was inspired by a line from a poem by Gérard de Nerval: “Time does not surprise the wise, but of Time the wise laughs, as only he knows how to use it.” The case, base plate and bridges are grade 5 titanium with PVD treatment. Front and back bezels are 18K gold and are the first in the collection to be curved.
