Richard Mille takes the lid off the candy jar in a new collection for women, filled with sweet treats and slices of candied fruit. For this RM 07-03 Myrtille (Blueberry), four swirly lollipops, two gummy ribbons and two sugar canes share the dial. Each sweet is painted in acrylic and lacquered by hand. For an even more lifelike appearance, powdered enamel and the fine sand used in hourglasses are combined to create the impression of a sugar coating. The bezel is made from Carbon TPT, a superposition of hundreds of carbon filaments which are compiled on a machine to modify the orientation of the fibres between layers. After firing, this Carbon TPT is sliced open to reveal random patterns. The caseback is in Quartz TPT, produced using the same method as for Carbon TPT, this time with silicon filaments. The turquoise shade is a new colour that took a full year to develop. The caseband uses a gradient of both materials, allowing a gradual colour transition between the bezel and the caseback. Proposed as a 30-piece limited edition.
