Despite being founded less than two decades ago, Richard Mille has cemented itself as a leading trailblazer in the world of luxury watches with alluring timepieces that exhibit unparalleled innovations and attention to detail.

The RM 037 watch, an extraordinary addition to the collection, holds its righteous spot as a refined symbol of purity as it combines technicality with aesthetic pleasure, all in one piece. A winning choice for both men and women, the legendary brand has now made a statement for feminism by reimagining the watch in white ceramic—a true landmark for Richard Mille.

Embodied with ATZ ceramic, a material that some would say holds more precious ranks than diamonds, Richard Mille’s latest masterpiece personifies the many facets of women, as it sparkles with elegance, yet serves as a sturdy staple. Case in point: the architecture of this particular watch’s crown features a stem crown assembly that protects it from falling apart.

An ode to the desires of women who are unapologetic about wanting it all, a second creation, the RM 07-01 ladies’ watch, fulfills expectations by combining practicality with elegance in each curve. After all, it is Richard Mille’s dedication to serving loyalists with the very best that resulted in the creation of this particular piece, the ideal companion for the 21st century woman.

With hints of modernity peeping through, the highly skeletonized automatic movement of the watch has been designed in-house by CRMA2. While mechanical techniques shine with perfection in this feminine masterpiece, the watch also offers a sense of intimacy with its tonneau-shaped case design, which features indexes resembling water droplets. What’s more the watch has been crafted in a size that works well for both, daily wear and special occasions, and comes with scratch-resistant features. As the heritage brand continues to grow and evolve its vision, it’s safe to say that Richard Mille is all set to conquer the watchmaking world.
