RICHARD MILLE

A passionate champion of new technologies, Richard Mille has looked to materials employed by the aeronautics and automotive industries since the very launch of his eponymous brand, in 2001. This is how alloys such as Arcap and titanium-aluminium or carbon nanofibre composites have found their way to the workbenches of watchmakers in Les Breuleux, Switzerland. The Jura-based Maison was the first introduce these materials within the world of infinite minutiae that constitutes haute horlogerie.

The mechanical structures that lie at the heart of certain movements are practically identical to those designed for Formula 1 engines. To achieve this synergy, the brand early on enlisted top names in the sport: drivers like Felipe Massa, Romain Grosjean, Sébastien Loeb or Sébastien Ogier. Jean Todt, a legendary figure of the automotive world if ever there was one, actively supports the brand

Richard Mille has fostered significant partnerships with teams like e.dams Renault in Formula E, the new championship for electric-only single-seaters. The Maison Richard Mille has been particularly present in the world of classic cars. The brand has been the principal partner of the most emblematic championship in historic racing, the Le Mans Classic , since 2002. On another register, Chantilly Arts & Elégance Richard Mille has rapidly established itself as a reference in the world of classic car shows. This event embodies a more feminine side of the brand’s commitment to the automotive realm.
