RICHARD MILLE – RM 19-02 Tourbillon Fleur

Magnolias herald spring’s arrival with their plump fleshy petals and now they’re planting their roots into the leafy green dial of this timekeeping marvel. Its hand-painted pink and white petals at 7 o’ clock unfurl every 5 minutes (or by pressing the pusher at 9 o’ clock on the case side). The flower unveils a flying tourbillon studded with sparkling stamens before its 5 petals close to become a pink bud. The dazzling diamond time display between 12 and 3 o’ clock on a black background bears diamond markers as two white-tipped silver hands track the hours and minutes. The flying tourbillon, 36-hour power reserve and time functions are brought to life by a manual wind mechanical movement housed in Richard Mille’s signature three-parth barrel-shaped case.
