Richard Mille Offers RM 033 Wristwatch At Christie’s Geneva May Auction

By Pardhasaradhi Gonuguntla

New York, New York – Reported by Elite Traveler, the private jet lifestyle magazine

On May 14th Richard Mille will auction the RM 033 Sentebale at Christie’s Important Watches sale, Geneva. The watch was donated by Richard Mille in aid of the Sentebale and Tusk Trust’s charitable work.

This unique RM 033 automatic caliber comes in an 18k red gold case, black rubber strap and red gold buckle. The colors of the dial take inspiration from the Sentebale logo which is discretely reproduced on the back sapphire glass.

Richard Mille paid homage to Sentebale and Tusk Trust whose Patrons are Prince Harry and The Duke of Cambridge respectively by donating this extraordinary piece during last year’s edition of the British Polo Day Charity Cup. A quintessential celebration of the finest polo, the day attracted VIP guests and members of several royal families including Prince Seeiso of Lesotho, who is the Co-Patron of Sentebale alongside Prince Harry.

In a letter to Richard Mille, Kedge Martin (CEO of Sentebale) and Charles Mayhew MBE (CEO of Tusk Trust) expressed their ‘’deepest gratitude’’ for the generous support to the charities. The letter said: “Through the creation of this unique RM 033 Sentebale timepiece (No. 01/01) and your participation in the 2011 British Polo Day Charity Cup Richard Mille are directly enabling both charities to continue their valuable work throughout Africa.’’ It continued: ‘’Prince William and Prince Harry are proud Patrons of Tusk and Sentebale, as they are causes very close to both of their hearts.”

The RM 033 features a skeletonized automatic winding movement with hours and minutes, integrated off-center monoblock platinum rotor, free sprung balance with variable inertia, power reserve of 42 hours and baseplate in grade 5 titanium with Titalyt® treatment.
