Combining Carbon TPT®—which is remarkable for its qualities of strength and lightness—and gold, a chemically noble substance is a technical and technological tour de force. So is working the resulting material, as it demands extensive know-how and absolute precision when it comes to designing milling programmes and seeking out suitable cutting tools. The realisation of this hybrid material with links to two worlds rests on Carbon TPT® layers compiled at a 45° angle that alternate with sheets of gold. Thus, arrayed in metallic attire, each model reveals a case whose curves are exalted by a new play of light and gorgeous shades of gold. This combination specifically reveals the full technical performance and finesse Richard Mille offers throughout the brand’s collections.
And, as it happens, Richard Mille is today presenting, after 4 years of development, the unique lustre of this exclusive material in two models conceived and designed for women: the RM 07-01 and the RM 037, each with a dial set with black sapphires and their centre are Onyx. Presented on the cases—themselves veritable jewel boxes, Gold Carbon TPT® constitutes a leap forward in terms of inalterability and ensures optimal protection for these in-house calibres. The striking damascene patterns, revealed at random during their making, make each timepiece unique, like each woman who straps daily a Mille on her wrist.
