|Discover the secrets behind Richard Miller watchmaking
Since its introduction in 2001, the uniquely designed Richard Mille watch has been the dream of many watch lovers. Richard Mille has established his name in the field of luxury watches with groundbreaking futuristic designs related to racing cars, Tonneau cases or Skeleton-designed dials.Richard Mille RM 11 replica watches
Richard Miller's factory
The elaborate process between Richard Mille and partners is behind every successful model. The best and most expensive Richard Mille case is crafted from a factory in Les Breuleux, Switzerland. In addition to Richard Mille, Richard Mille co-owns other important players in the system including Horometrie SA, Valgine, Audemars Piguet Renaud et Papi (APR & P), ProArt and Vaucher Manufacture Fleurier.
Although the factory is small, the watches produced here are always considered one of the most complex timekeeping machines in the world. Richard Mille's products are very expensive, accompanied by the perfect fusion of watchmaking art. In fact, on Richard Mille watches, up to 15 different types of screws are used on average.
Richard Mille doesn't make watches entirely self-made, but decides on product design, engineering and all other production-related matters. When Sir Richard Mille came up with the idea to make a new watch, he did not follow the normal manufacturing process. Instead, he works with internal design teams and suppliers to turn his ideas into reality. The ultimate goal is to create a masterpiece that is technically and aesthetically optimized. replica watches swiss
In the past, in 1999, when Richard Mille decided to implement the idea of producing watches under his own brand, he turned to his longtime friends and companions in the manufacturing industry. The watchmaker is Dominique Guenat. Mr. Guanat is the owner of Valgine, a private watch company. At the time, Guenat and Mille co-founded the parent company of the Richard Mille brand, Horometrie SA. Not only that, but Richard Mille was also supported by Audemars Piguet Renaud et Papi (APRP), a 78% stake in the company owned by Audemars Piguet, to help ensure that this fledgling brand has an advantage in copper production. Lake water was previously another big brand.
Manufacturing of equipment
Richard Mille did not make the machine himself. However, the company works with suppliers to create machines based on its specifications. In particular, APR & P was responsible for designing Richard Mille's most complex mechanism. Therefore, APRP manufactures the components and assembles them into complete units.
On the other hand, Vaucher Manufacture Fleurier is a company that makes simpler movements, such as Richard Mille's automatic chronograph movement. With the exception of the ref.007 watch series, this series is operated by Vaucher movement-based movements, but is customized for Richard Mille watches. In addition, Vaucher has also produced a manual winding movement to power RM035. replica watches luxury
In addition, third-party supplier Valgine SA is also a very important factor. Valgine is responsible for quality control, assembly, supply of parts and even the entire watch product, and then bears the Richard Mille brand name. In addition, the design of the integrated equipment was performed by Mille and his team.
Manufacture of casing
Richard Mille did not produce a completely homemade watch, but he made the case himself. The special case has become one of Mille's iconic elements, first made by supplier DonzÚ Baume based on Mr Mille's sketches. The barrel-shaped watch has a unique design with an ideal curvature, allowing the watch to hold anyone's wrist. These cases require up to 28 stamping operations before machining on a CNC lathe.
In 2016, the Richard Mille brand introduced the RM 67-01 model and its Extra-Flat series of barrel cases. The barrel of this model has an ultra-thin case, so Richard Mille must replace all traditional machines with new machines. It was reported that it took Richard Mille about 455 hours to create the mechanical system to make the case of the RM 67-01 model. The treatment is performed at the Les Breuleux plant.
Another unique factor that makes Richard Mille so expensive is the "100% Swiss Origin" label for each watch part. Few companies can claim that every department of a company is marked as Swiss. But with Richard Mille, including the case and strap, it took Mille six years to complete. It can be seen that the foundation of Richard Mille's creation of the best products is to choose the best people and control the mentality of good cooperation.MB&F replica Watches
Les Breuleux's factory is very efficient, with more than 90% of its assembled watches sold before being sold to the owner or retailer. In 2010, this number reached approximately 2,500 units. Richard Mille's distribution channels are currently available on 3 continents: US (operated by John Simonian of Sissem), Europe / Middle East / Russia (London and Far East) .
Following the success of RM 007 and RM 07-01, Richard Mille inherited the essence of his predecessors and launched RM 037, which left a deep impression on both genders.
The RM 037 time machine is the first model equipped with a fully invented and internal movement in a Les Breuleux factory called Caliber CRMA1. This is a complex machine designed to expose the body, bring a new visual experience to the wearer, and highlight its internal mechanisms. The watch has only three main parts-the bottom, the bezel and the strap, which perform 44 different stamping operations and require more than 255 tools to perform.
The Calibre CRMA1 movement not only has a large date window, but also a window displaying the knob function, allowing the wearer to customize the N (neutral) mode by simply turning the crown. , H (set date and time) and W (winding). Obviously, this mechanism is considered a tradition familiar on the dial of most watches manufactured by Richard Mille. If on the dial of the RM 056 watch model, the three position display is set at the 4 o'clock position, then for the RM 67-01 watch model using the CRMA6 movement, the dial is set at the 2 o'clock position. .
The frame and bridge of the movement are made of titanium and covered with Titaly and DLC. The rotor is decorated with a geometric pattern that can be weighted to help keep the clock's clock speed consistent with the wearer's level of motion. This design helps to optimize the power reserve and ensures that the machine is always stable and never windy.harry winston replica watches
