    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 RM005-FM delivers the same top-quality specifications for which Richard Mille is renowned. In 2004, Richard Mille released the first automatic model and in collaboration with Felipe Massa, the famous Formula 1 race car driver. RM005-FM is built on the inspirational, founding principles of racing cars – being first and foremost light weight in construction. The case is built with white gold and titanium keeping it light and houses the powerful 6200 calibre. It features a skeletonized automatic winding movement and date indicator. The state-of-the-art movement and the tonneau shaped case are iconic characteristics of Richards Mille watches, as seen in the present example. The present lot is offered in excellent condition and is numbered 216 out of a limited 300 pieces.
