RICHARD MILLE – RM 07-02 Pink Lady Saphir

A Pink Lady is more than just a girly cocktail: it’s first and foremost a symbol of female emancipation. This gin-based concoction was invented in 1932 and owes its name to the pink hue created by one of its ingredients: grenadine. It enabled ladies to enter worlds that had previously been just for men. Richard Mille took inspiration from the famous girl’s drink to design a completely feminine piece: RM 07-02 Pink Lady Saphir. Its three-part barrel case in pink sapphire crystal unveils part of the self-winding CRMA5 calibre, its openwork rose gold plate adorned with rows of diamond when you gaze at the dial and its diamond covered rose gold rotor that you can see through the back. The graduated chapter ring features twelve luminescent teardrop indices. The case’s barrel figure is depicted in the centre of the dial by an onyx rectangle bearing the hour and minute hands.
