THE VIRTUES OF AN AMULET
A spectacular creative force has shaped this unique watch, to be worn around the neck like a sacred amulet, and which multiplies both mechanical and artistic prowess, paying a vibrant, almost tribal tribute to the beauty of nature.
Born of the fertile soil of the imagination, resulting from a spectacular creative force, the RM S14 Talisman Origine is doubly unique. Firstly, for Richard Mille, this horological masterpiece represents a major first, as the brand accustomed to designing wristwatches as innovative as they are exclusive ventures into the realm of mechanical timepieces to be worn entwined around the neck. Secondly, to intensify its exceptional character, this model, equipped with a metal and rubber link adjustable thanks to a gold snap clasp, was produced in a single unit.
The wealth of detail and chiseled symbols on this time-displaying amulet is so extensive that it requires careful examination. Inspired by ancient, almost tribal origins, the choice of materials – rhodonites with a thousand shades, titanium, marble, red gold and heather wood – and the engraving work on stones and metal. Clamped by claws held in place by screws, the Richard Mille signature tonneau-shaped case is 46.77 x 77.27mm with a thickness of 13.10mm. On either side of the case middle, two crowns contribute to the symmetry of the whole: one, functional, represents the sun (at 3 o’clock), while the other, purely decorative, is akin to the moon (at 9 o’clock). The transparent dial features an openworked plate whose golden geometric structure evokes the branches of a stylized tree. Hours and minutes are displayed in the center, overlooking a variable-inertia tourbillon nestled at 6 o’clock. These functions are delivered by the CRMT5 caliber, a 4hz self-winding movement equipped with a fast-rotating barrel that provides a 50-hour power reserve.
