    In the early 1999, Richard Mille and Dominique Guenat partnered with the legendary Audemars Piguet. They had one common goal, and it was to push the Luxury Swiss hand-made watches to the very top of technical innovation. After three years of intensive research and multiple prototypes, Richard Mille launched their RM 001 Tourbillon at Baselworld 2001. It had a phenomenal response from the public. All 80 pieces were sold out almost the moment they were launched. The memorizing factor of the RM001 was that it didn't feature any precious metal or gemstones, it was solely the stunning movement and the technology of the calibre that captivated the audience. A large portion of Richard Mille's inspiration came from race cars and the study of shock-resistance. Today, Richard Mille watches are worn by watch enthusiasts all over the world and renowned athletes like tennis icon Rafael Nadal wear their Richard Mille Tourbillon watch during their sporting matches.

    Similarly, this Reference RM011-FM AL Ti delivers the same top-quality specifications for which Richard Mille is renowned. In 2007, Richard Mille released a new watch in collaboration with Felipe Massa, the famous Formula 1 race car driver. RM011 is built on the inspirational, founding principles of racing cars – being first and foremost light weight in construction. The case is built with a uniquely processed, bronze titanium keeping it light and houses the powerful RMAC1 calibre. It features a skeletonized automatic winding movement with fly-back chronograph, 60-minute countdown timer, and oversized date/month indicator. The state-of-the-art movement and the tonneau shaped case are iconic characteristics of Richard Mille watches, as seen in the present example.

    The present lot is very limited and exclusive, the number 00/30 was distributed only to Richard Mille's most important VIP collector. The complex, powerful movement and bronzed titanium case truly lives up to Richard Mille's exceptional standards. This timepiece is in excellent condition with Richard Mille box and the original certificate.
