Distinctive amulets

With the RM 71-01 Talisman, Richard Mille introduces a standout ultra-feminine collection. On the design side, talismans inspired by Art Deco and Primitive Arts form lines that are reflected in the movement structure and the case decoration, composing remarkable harmonious and complex architectural works. The range includes no less than ten combinations that are cleverly diverse not only in color, but also in terms of shape, volume and perspective. They combine gold, mother-of-pearl, onyx and precious stones with the exclusive character of haute couture and High Jewellery. As one has come to expect from Richard Mille, the technical side of the watch is entirely worthy of its standout exterior, since the RM 71-01 Talisman watches are equipped with a movement specially designed with them in mind. This is the first self-winding tourbillon caliber to feature a particularly compact, slim and light openworked construction, which nonetheless meets the brand’s specific demands in terms of performance and resistance. The tourbillon mechanism plays a starring role, appearing to be literally ‘crowned’ by various talismans. Within this extremely contemporary collection, the dial and case engage in an original dialogue opening up whole new horizons for femininity according to Richard Mille.
