The relationship between the internationally well-known movie star and Richard Mille began when they were introduced through Jean Todt. However, they soon realised that they shared a common passion for watches.
Impressed by her commitment, her artistic sensitivity, her intuition as to what women want and her natural sense for luxury, Richard Mille suggested that Michelle Yeoh work on the RM ladies’ range and subsequently on jewellery.
Michelle Yeoh accepted the challenge enthusiastically and Richard Mille gave free rein to her creative talents on her first project: the watch RM 019 tourbillon.
When first launched, the unisex watch was acclaimed for its technical prowess as well as for its poetry.
Michelle Yeoh, however, has chosen to re-style one of the models in this exceptional unisex range, this time with only women in mind.
The watch RM 019 for women, styled by Michelle Yeoh, will be presented in 2010.
This happy collaboration is likely to lead to other new watches dedicated to women only.
More to follow in the coming months!
