Pre-SIHH 2017: NEW RM 07-01 AND RM 037 MODELS FEATURING GEM-SET NTPT CARBON

NTPT carbon is a signature feature of the Richard Mille men’s collection. Indeed, it lends watches a unique and powerful appearance while simultaneously ensuring an optimal protection for the calibre. Today, this material reveals its feminine side in the RM 07-01 and RM 037, which boast gem-set NTPT carbon of unsurpassed elegance, a Richard Mille exclusive.

At the slightest wrist movement, all eyes are riveted by a striking contrast between the sparkle of clear diamonds and the matt carbon contour that adorn both of these automatic timepieces.

Richard Mille RM 07-01 Gem-Set NTPT Carbon

Setting gemstones in NTPT carbon is a new adventure for the brand. Unlike gold, which can be worked directly with tools to create the prongs that will hold the diamonds, the hardness and resistance of NTPT carbon mean special CNC machines for milling equipped with diamond tools are required to perform the mitraillage involved in a pavé setting.

Richard Mille RM 037 Gem-Set NTPT Carbon 

Hand-polished prongs in red or white gold are produced separately and then inserted around the many 0.25mm bearings destined to rmly contain as many as 250 diamonds in the case of an RM 037 Full Set model. The perfectly ush surface of each creation bears witness to an absolute mastery of this art.

Thanks to the technicity of their in-house calibres and their cases adorned with diamonds and NTPT carbon—immutable materials—the RM 07-01 and the RM 037 are particularly balanced and refined models.
