A Pocket-Sized Richard Mille

Tick tock – an updated pocket watch for the ages.

By Terry Christodoulou 03/06/2020

While pocket watches remain more than just a vintage throwback – various haute horologie offerings are regularly released and sought after – most don’t land with the luxe flamboyance of a Richard Mille. 

Mille’s RM 020 pocket watch is a piece for modern times – built around a carbon nano-fibre composite baseplate that’s crafted under extreme pressure (temperatures of 2000 degrees).

True to form, it also boasts a manually wound tourbillon movement that powers running hours, minutes and function indicators with an impressive 10-day power reserve.

The visible movement sits inside a titanium case with black sapphire glass, measuring 63mm and 52mm and is protected from overwinding by a Cheval Frères crown – specialist manufacturers who have been in the business of component watch parts for 165 years.

In the spirit of the first pocket watches, which made timekeeping personal, the RM 020 can be attached to the hip via a titanium chain – or simply mounted to a desk on a matching stand.
