Richard Mille entered the field of luxury watchmaking in 2001 with the intention of designing a wristwatch that would be "a racing car for the wrist." His entry was met with a lot of fanfare and excitement. To achieve this goal, the company utilizes cutting-edge materials, such as carbon nanofibers, which are renowned for their incredible lightness while retaining incredible strength. It combines the most cutting-edge technology with a streamlined architectural style and characteristics that are common to luxury watches, such as pave-set diamonds in the cases and dials of several of the watches.
It was natural that top-tier sportsmen would choose Richard Mille watches as their go-to timepieces given the company's dedication to providing products with the highest possible levels of accuracy and functionality. Richard Mille has, throughout the course of his career, cultivated ties with some of the highest-profile athletes in the world. In return, these sportsmen have given their names to limited-edition designs produced by Richard Mille.
