Richard Mille’s New RM 66 Flying Tourbillon Breaks Stylistic Rules

Drawing inspiration from the world of rock music, Richard Mille released the new RM 66 Flying Tourbillon in a limited edition of 50 watches. An electrifying and dynamic timepiece right down to its finest details, and fascinating for its irreverent spirit and faithful reflection of the brand, it is dedicated to all who, like the brand itself, seek to challenge any limitation. And since the brand has never obeyed any stylistic rules but its own, Creative and Development Director Cécile Guenat brought that to light once again with this model.

From the craftsmanship of Genevan engraver Olivier Vaucher to the architecture of the RM66 manual winding caliber that showcases a fast-winding barrel providing a 72-hour power reserve positioned at 6 o’clock and the tourbillon at 12 o’clock – a first for the brand, the flying tourbillon with variable inertia, the movement flipped by 180°, the index points shaped like a guitar plectrum, the grade 5 titanium crown in the shape of a spider, the 5N red gold plates, and everything in between, it’s more than clear how much attention Richard Mille pays to even the smallest of details.
