Multi-Colored Gemstones Set the New Richard Mille RM 71-02 Automatic Tourbillon Talisman Limited Editions Alight

Navigator News > Watches + Jewelry

The most glamorous images from the 1970s—complete with glittering disco balls, illuminated dancefloors, incandescent make-up and dazzling attire—inspire the latest collection of Richard Mille watches for women:  the RM 71-02 Automatic Tourbillon Talisman limited editions.

How to translate the symbols of an era into a thoroughly modern timepiece?  Richard Mille Creative and Development Director Cécile Guenat immersed herself in the decade’s disco hits, the theatrical décor of Studio 54, and the sequins, rhinestones and shiny lame styles of the time before designing the 10 timepieces of the Talisman collection. Each watch features a combination of precious and semi-precious gemstones, resulting in a profusion of color. Tsavorites, spessartites, amethysts, diamonds, spinels, rubies, sapphires, hematite, malachite, lapis lazuli, sugilite and pink opal…Guenat designed geometric patterns using the dazzling gems that are nothing short of exuberant.

The 10 models differ in the arrangement of their stones, their setting pattern, and their central dials. They all, however, share the same CRMT1 automatic movement. Presented for the first time as part of the RM 71-01 Automatic Tourbillon Talisman collection in 2018, the CRMT1 is Richard Mille’s eighth in-house movement but its first automatic tourbillon caliber. A feat requiring 1,000 hours of development, it is a true technical achievement, given that the tourbillon mechanism is integrated into the heart of a movement only 6.2 mm thick and weighing just 8 grams. The finishing touch on each Talisman is a specially designed metallic leather bracelet, featuring two colors, and embossed with organic designs at the 12 o’clock position and geometric patterns at 6 o’clock. Only seven pieces of each model will be produced.
