For 2009, a long awaited addition to the ladies’ collection at Richard Mille watches has become a reality with the presentation of the RM 019 “Celtic Knot” Ladies’ Tourbillon wristwatch.
The first and most striking feature of this new creation is the diamond studded Celtic Knot that traverses and weaves itself over and through various parts of the movement, connecting and joining winding barrel, power reserve indicator and tourbillon in an endless cycle. The hour and minute hands are striking in their asymmetrical placement within the flowing lines of this Celtic Knot pattern.
Adding a refined visible touch, the tourbillon endstone bridge on the onyx baseplate side is also engraved with a Celtic triquetra knot. Keeping with the technical nature of all watches created by the brand, the RM 019 utilizes a newly developed power reserve indicator that makes use of a differential gearing system, directly connected to the winding barrel. Via a red line etched on its surface, the direct turning of the power reserve barrel allows the wearer to easily note if the watch requires winding.
The RM 019 “Celtic Knot” Ladies’ Tourbillon will be available in 18 carat Red or White gold cases, finished with a specially sculpted, Alcryn collared crown.
