Today’s Haute Time Watch of the Day is the RM 56-01 Sapphire Crystal Tourbillon by Richard Mille. This magnificent timepiece is created from sapphire crystal. The case, movement, baseplate and even wheels and the bridges of the watch are sapphire, also making it transparent, which reflects light beautifully through the timepiece and really showcases the movement.
Richard Milles’ Sapphire Crystal Tourbillon features an RM 56-01 caliber tourbillon movement. Hours and minutes are displayed on the dial along with a power reserve indicator at the 11 o’clock position and a torque indicator at 2 o’clock.
The Sapphire Crystal Tourbillon is shown here on a transparent elastic strap constructed from a material called Aerospace Nano®, in which Richard Mille developed with a company called Biwi, SA and create a strap that integrates perfectly with the sapphire case.
Richard Mille takes it to the next level with the Sapphire Crystal Tourbillon and continues to merge new materials, technology, design and creativity to create this amazing timepiece.
