Richard Mille shocked us five decades ago when he created Tourbillons with Titanium cases and movements. This time again, he epitomized mechanical watchmaking, with the incorporation of Carbon nanofiber for movement baseplates. Carbon Nanofiber, a composite composed of carbon fibers many times thinner than human hair, possesses mechanical, physical, and chemical stability when molded under high pressure.
The combination of titanium and nanofiber, a high challenge for watch-making today, is a piece of cake for Richard Mille. What is spectacular about the watch is its all-gray appearance, which exudes an understated elegance and poses as a change from the stereotypical black or silver colors.
