Richard Mille premieres new RM57-01 Phoenix and Dragon Jackie Chan tourbillon
Known for groundbreaking creations inspired by a long list of Hollywood A-listers the likes of Natalie Portman and our very own Tan Sri Michelle Yeoh, Richard Mille is back to impress with another release, this time in collaboration with one of the world’s best-known name on the silverscreen.
A new tourbillon is dedicated to everyone’s favourite kung-fu comedy master, Jackie Chan, befittingly called the RM57-01 Phoenix and Dragon – Jackie Chan.
The Phoenix, a mythical bird commonly referred to as the ‘King of Birds’ is set side-by-side with The Dragon, a symbol of great fortune and luck. Created from 3N rose gold, these creatures of lore are carved and incised entirely by hand using special miniature tools for utmost detail. To add to the realism, they are finished off with a painstaking hand micro-painting process, which also covers the unseen parts of the two entities.
The entire movement is set in PVD treated titanium baseplate, signature of Richard Mille, and comes complete with double winding barrels and a power resrve of 48 hours. It is reinforced with a torque-limiting crown to protect the watch from possible over-winding.
Only 15 pieces of this movement are available in total and come in either 18k white or red gold.
