Mr. Mille said: ‘As we all know, we have been drawing inspiration from the racing and aviation industry to launch a series of amazing high-tech, high-performance watches. However, ladies’ watches have accounted for a considerable portion of our sales in recent years. Large proportion. This means that we need an innovative and talented modern woman to inject new energy into us and take the women’s watch collection to a whole new level.

Dating back three years ago, Ms. Cécile, who is now the director of the RICHARD MILLE women’s watch series, was invited to join the company for the first time to design a new series of watches. At that time, Ms. Cécile had little success in the fine jewelry industry, and the invitation was irresistible to the young woman. After graduating from the Geneva School of Art and Design, Ms. Cécile worked for a jeweller in Lausanne, and then studied with a London jewellery designer, where she created a range of haute couture workshops and brand designs works. From the drawing of the initial sketch to the selection of gemstones, Ms. Cécile Guenat has been meticulous in every aspect, paying great attention to details, outstanding talent and enthusiasm for work, making her a lucky girl in the jewellery and watchmaking palace.

Talisman, metaphorical amulet. The term is reminiscent of the mysterious power of protection. The mysterious fusion of Tribal arts and Art Deco creates this series of watches.

In designing this series, I not only referenced the decorative arts, but also took inspiration from tribal arts-masks, African sculptures, etc., and they inspired all great modern It has a very deep influence on contemporary artists. The sharp contrast, geometric shapes and sacredness of those artworks have me deeply fascinated. Through the fusion of content and form, they magically outline the designs that are now available. ‘ The combination concept of the series has taken shape as early as the initial drafting stage. A variety of different interpretations of this concept have emerged, and ten different styles of case and surface dial have finally been obtained. Ms. Cécile Guenat is determined to highlight the charm of the skeletonized movement, and through the setting and engraving of the case, many possibilities are realized. Against the backdrop of dazzling gems, the contour of the face plate presents two completely different worlds, a vibrant nature, and a sexy modern city.
Case setting process
The RM 71-01 Talisman self-winding women’s tourbillon watch is a veritable masterpiece in every sense. It perfectly integrates the design of high jewelry and watch, so that the two are not in conflict. Whether it is the design of the movement, the dial or the case, the sparks of the collision of aesthetics, technology and visual art are everywhere. Mr. Richard Mille explained, ‘This is a unique and classic watch. In order to highlight its uniqueness, we want to combine this outstanding design with strong technical strength. Therefore, the brand’s first self-winding tourbillon The movement was born! It is not just the uniqueness that attracts people’s attention.

The design also appropriately reflects the mechanism of automatic winding. The structural design is unobtrusive, highlighting the decoration of the face plate, hands and interior and exterior. ‘

Ms. Cécile Guenat insists on finding the most suitable jewelry design for the complex mechanical structure of the brand. This watch has unprecedentedly combined so many craftsmanship: jewelry craftsmen, faceplate craftsmen and watchmakers have overcome various difficulties to create this extraordinary work. The hollowing out process, inlaying process and face plate making are the ideal combination of craftsmanship and aesthetics, and the movement itself is the embodiment of perfect proportions. When the gears started rolling, such a tight combination worked wonders.

This part requires a large number of different surface treatments: sandblasting, polishing, inlaying, all processes are implemented in multiple layers on a very small area, thereby overcoming huge technical challenges. The bezel is decorated with staggered stones. The number, shape and size of the stones vary according to each design version. The caseback is engraved with a matte finish that complements the sparkling gems and other polished surfaces.
