Earlier this year Richard Mille launched the follow up of the RM 56 and 56-01, the Richard Mille RM 56-02 Tourbillon Sapphire and I just had to make you aware of it. Upping the ante, the RM 56-02 has added a suspended titanium baseplate separated from the sapphire case with an elaborate cable and pulley system.
The RM 56-02’s case is made entirely from scratch resistant and hardened sapphire crystal milled from solid pieces of sapphire. It takes 40 days worth of machining to create one RM 56-02 case and the sapphire bridges take an additional 400 hours.
This incredible feat doesn’t come cheap and sees the Richard Mille RM 56-02 Tourbillon Sapphire come in at a whopping $2 000 000.
