Just because Richard Mille makes watches the way Formula 1 teams make cars — with plenty of high-tech materials and futuristic designs to enhance and complement performance — doesn’t mean the company doesn’t know how to dabble in elegance.

While the slender RM 07-01 ladies’ model has been draped in diamonds on multiple occasions since its launch in 2014, the new Intergalactic Collection takes Richard Mille’s gem-setting creativity to cosmic heights.

These four new versions of the RM 07-01 start with a black Carbon TPT case, a composite material the brand has long favoured for its robustness and distinctive pattern. Layers of carbon fibre are each woven together at a 45-degree angle before the whole thing is heated and pressed into a solid block, resulting in superior toughness.
