For a long time, Richard Mille was more like a patent worn by men. Mr. Richard Mille is determined to break this deadlock, and cooperates with Michelle Yeoh to launch a signature watch. In 2013, Diana Luna, a female golf player, and Natalie Portman, an Oscar film actress, were invited to join the ‘RM family’. So Richard Mille announced that 2014 would be ‘the year of women’s watches.’
RM 51-01 Michelle Yeoh’s Dragon Tiger Tourbillon Watch-Do not let the eyebrows be domineering
Richard Mille launches a number of new ladies ‘watches to celebrate the ‘Ladies’ Watch Year’. Richard Mille’s long-lasting cooperation with the famous Malaysian actress Michelle Yeoh has been fruitful. This year, the brand new RM 51-01 Tiger and Dragon-Michelle Yeoh tourbillon watch was launched.
The new watch celebrates the release of Michelle Yeoh’s new movie Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon II in 2014. In the film, Michelle Yeoh plays the household name Yu Xiulian again.
Richard Mille’s collaboration with Michelle Yeoh can be traced back to the RM 051 Phoenix Tourbillon Phoenix Tourbillon watch launched in 2011. Michelle Yeoh actively participated in this symbolic timepiece concept. This time, Michelle Yeoh made a fresh review of the internal shape and construction concept of the movement, introducing the aesthetic elements of ‘Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon’, and the tourbillon movement is surrounded by dragons and tigers. Both dragon and tiger are made of 3N red gold and are hand-carved and embedded in the movement. To this end, the brand customized special tools to meet the needs of high-end craftsmanship. In order to make animal images come to life, the artisans have gone through a difficult and long manual detailed drawing process, and even the invisible parts of the naked eye have carefully carved dragon and tiger patterns.
Dragons and tigers have deep images of Asian culture. Tigers are considered ‘yang’, a symbol of male and domineering, and an animal that drives out evil spirits. The soldier’s shield and weapon have a tiger pattern because it represents courage. The dragon is a very common totem in China. It has a complex shape and can represent a group or even a symbol of national unity. Today, dragons are considered to represent prosperity and happiness. This watch has a power reserve of 48 hours, and a red line indicates between 10 o’clock and 11 o’clock. The 5th grade titanium alloy band limits the torque of the crown to prevent the crown from being overwound.
The RM 51-01 Michelle Yeoh Dragon Tiger Tourbillon Watch is limited to 20 pieces and is available in 18K white and red gold.
RM 19-01 NATALIE PORTMAN Tourbillon Watch-Enlightenment of Goddess of Destiny
Natalie Portman, an American actress and Oscar actor, has become a brand co-star since 2011. She will launch the first watch in collaboration with Richard Mille, the RM 19-01 Natalie Portman Tourbillon. Natalie Portman’s outstanding success in her career and life is obvious to all. She graduated from the Department of Psychology at Harvard University, has amazing acting talent, and has achieved great success in the theater and film industry. She is actively involved in philanthropy among her busy schedules and provides support to various charitable associations, including the International Social Fund (FINCA), a non-profit organization that raises small loans for developing countries, and the Save the Children Association ‘(Free theChildren)-a charity that protects the rights of children worldwide.
In the first collaboration with the brand, Natalie Portman took inspiration from the spider’s pattern and showed the profound meaning and infinite imagination of this watch through diamond inlay and pattern inlay. The fascination of spiders as a predator is reflected in its strong symbolic meaning in the history of civilization and in many myths and stories in all countries of the world. Spiders are often inseparable from female energy and creativity. The spider is considered the goddess of destiny. It weaves a web of reality and is a symbol of soul and freedom. For the Altai people in Central Asia and Siberia, spiders symbolize the soul liberated from the flesh, and from a mysterious point of view, spider silk is the support of spiritual development. The West Africans called the spider Anasi, the ancestor of mankind and the creator of the sun, moon, and stars.
The RM 19-01 manual-winding tourbillon movement with black rhodium-plated, 18K white gold and black sapphire base plate is the first of its kind by Richard Mille. The spider in the movement is made of 18K white gold and is inlaid with diamonds. The spider’s abdomen sets up a tourbillon bridge. Its tentacles support two winding barrels, which blend seamlessly with the movement.
The visual beauty comes from the difficult and long manufacturing process: hand polishing around the clock, exquisite finishing, the exquisite craftsmanship of the discerning watchmaker, the extraordinary skills of the jeweler who inherited the ancient craft of generations, and Natalie herself The painstaking effort dedicated to this one-of-a-kind watch has contributed to the outstanding quality of this watch.
A total of 20 women’s watches were issued worldwide. Natalie Portman will wear this watch to attend major events around the world, once again witnessing Richard Mille’s favor and care for women around the world.

Modern women always want to have everything, who can blame their desire for perfection? After all, unlike in the past, women’s lives in the 21st century are full of unprecedented challenges, and modern society highly expects women to balance practical spirit and femininity in work, life and leisure. Richard Mille naturally knew this and created the new women’s watch RM 07-01, a self-winding watch.

There is also a variable geometry automatic disc of 5N 18K red gold. The activity of the user is adjusted to achieve the optimal effect of winding the winding barrel at a high speed. The new RM patented crown replaces the traditional system; the crown is no longer directly connected to the internal machinery, so it will not be loosened or damaged, and it can perfectly withstand the harsh environments of daily life.
This timepiece has reached an ideal balance between performance and potential. The power reserve of RM 07-01 is about 50 hours, which is an extraordinary achievement in ladies’ watches.
