New York, New York – Reported by Elite Traveler, the Private Jet Lifestyle Magazine
In celebration of the grand opening of the OC Concept Store in New York City, Richard Mille presents a 10-piece limited edition of his thinnest watch yet, the RM 016 OC Concept in white gold.
The OC Concept Store houses a curated selection of fine timepieces, beauty products, leather goods, jewelry and art installations. All objects represent innovative design that enhances daily life, and the
RM 016 OC Concept embodies the store’s philosophy perfectly. With its thin profile-8.25 mm thick-the rectangular RM 016 is a sleek accessory for men and women. The polished and brushed white gold case provides an elegant setting for a dazzling skeletonized dial, which features hot pink numerals, the OC Concept Store logo at 3 o’clock, and a date aperture at 7 o’clock. The watch is presented on a hot pink strap.
When Richard Mille introduced the first RM 016 in 2007, it represented the first rectangular watch in the collection. Its distinct design-thin and tapered to fit the wrist-found instant appeal with men and women. Yet this watch remains 100 percent Richard Mille, featuring the same attention to detail and technical achievement as its tonneau-shaped predecessors. The manufacture and assembly of the case’s three sections require 202 separate machining operations. And its unidirectional rotor with variable geometry, an exclusive to Richard Mille, allows the movement’s winding mechanism to be optimized and personalized to the owner’s lifestyle.
Richard Mille will produce 10 examples of the RM 016 OC Concept in white gold, and it will be available exclusively at the OC Concept Store in New York City.
