Richard Mille announced that 2014 will be the ‘Year of Women’s Watch’, and women’s watches will also occupy the first place in the 2014 new models. This year’s new ladies ‘watches include the RM 037 ladies’ watch, which injects feminine elements into the original neutral watch RM 037, combining aesthetic elegance, technical craftsmanship and Richard Mille’s long-established exquisite details. The most unique classic masterpiece of a high-end mechanical watch.
The bottom plate of the movement adopts a hollow design, the bridge plate is treated with black PVD coating, grade 5 titanium alloy material, and a large date is displayed at 12 o’clock. The date display consists of two hollowed-out rotating discs and a function selector. The wearer can freely choose winding, neutral or time, without pulling the crown to different positions. Two drop-shaped buttons are distributed between 10 o’clock and 11 o’clock (date adjustment) and 4 o’clock and 5 o’clock (function selector), making date adjustment and function selection extremely easy. The selected operation will be at 3 A small window (HNW) display between the hours and 4 o’clock.
The CRMA1 movement carries superb craftsmanship and gorgeous visual contrast. The mercerized polished surface and chamfered, sandblasted, matte and polished areas, and the rare black polishing treatment, strive to make every detail of the movement beautiful. Alas. The unique crown system fully guarantees that the movement is complete and undisturbed, because the new crown is different from the traditional crown and is not connected to the inside of the movement, so it will not come loose. With specially designed gear teeth, a cardless balance with hairspring, and a variable geometry rotating disc, the RM 037 ladies’ watch is the true masterpiece of Richard Mille. The RM 037 watch is available in a variety of materials: 18K red gold main case, highly scratch-resistant white ceramic (ATZ bezel) or black ceramic (TZP) bezel, available in 18K red gold and white gold. Multiple gem-set and dials in rare or semi-rare materials, such as onyx, jasper or pearl.
