—Founder and Name—
The watches of the Richard Mille high-quality replica brand are costly, with an average price of $ 180,000, or about 1.24 million yuan. In our traditional impression, it far exceeds the high-end brands Patek Philippe, Audemars Piguet, Vacheron Constantin, and Lange.
In the room, everyone called Richard Mille look-alike, “billionaire’s ticket.” Note, This is talking about “billionaires,” not “millionaires,” “millionaires.” “Millionaires” buying Richard Mille need to consider, “Millionaires” are still corrupt for Richard Mille look-alike watches … So, a new theory has emerged that “people wearing Real Richard Mille men’s watch must be Real Rich Man.”
Richard Mille’s price is a very young brand. We founded in 1999, and it has been 20 years since then.
The brand name comes directly from the founder, Mr. Richard Mille. Richard Mille on the mainland often translated as “Richard Miller,” but the officially recognized Chinese name is “Richard Mill.” It is similar to the car brand Tesla, which is called Tesla, and the official name is “Tuo Su Le.”
Richard Mille himself does not make or repair watches at all. The most crucial relationship between him and observation is that he worked in Seiko and a French jewelry and clock shop before the age of 50, engaged in luxury marketing and management.
At 50 years old, ie, a year later, he ran to find his watch brand. Currently, Richard Mille’s annual output price Australia brand is about 4,500 pieces, and the cumulative 20-year cumulative production is pieces.
— Case —
Mention Richard Mille, it is easy to think of a variety of nouns, such as “NTPT.”NTPT” is an abbreviation of “North Thin Ply Technology” in English, which is a carbon fiber material fabricated in a particular order. Carbon fiber is only half the weight of aluminum, but it is three times as strong. ItThe highest weight-to-strength ratio among all materials.
The Carbon fiber finished product’s directional strength, torsional stiffness, lateral stiffness, and other specific mechanical properties(such as watch cases) are not only affected itself but also related to the weaving process or pattern structure.
Switzerland’s Rains develops this carbon fiber technology called “NTPT” as early as 2001. Unlike the Traditional weaving method, when making NTPT, each layer of 30-micron carbon fiber and the previous layer have a 45 ° position mobile.
The final product not only has improved performance but also has a wavy texture like wood on the surface, which is highly recognizable.
In the early days, this technology used to produce racing sailboats. In 2013, Richard Mille found the “NTPT” company and spent a lot of money to sign long-term cooperation and exclusive supply agreement in the field of watches to make this material shine on its products. The same movement, because the case uses NTPT, the watch has a difference of hundreds of thousands of yuan …….
In addition to NTPT, Richard Mille offers other materials for the case. It wasn’t until 2013 that Richard Mille opened the ProArt SA factory that he had independent watch case production capabilities, and the previous products outsourced.
If you observe, you will also find that Richard Mille’s buckle is very similar to Blancpain and Chanel and has the same spring leaf structure. Fasteners such as Blancpain and Richard Mille high-quality replica produced by G & F Châtelain. Friends who Playing with antique watches, you can see your stamps on the buckle, case, and strap from time to time.
The Châtelain family began participating in watch production in 1936, focusing on buckle and case polishing. It relaunched after World War II, mainly engaged in the production of jewelry and high-end cases. Patek Philippe is its user. Although Chanel acquired g & F Châtelain in 1993, it still supplies parts for other companies.
Richard Miller’s movements mainly divided into two types. Vaucher Fleurier movements used below 300W RMB, and Audemars Piguet’s APRP movement studio customizes 300W +.
“APRP” stands for “Audemars Piguet Renaud & Papi.” “APRP” was co-founded by former Audemars Piguet employees Dominique Renaud and Giulio Papi in 1986. The main direction is to design, develop, and produce high-end complex movements without making watches.
The technology behind many big brands comes from APRP, according to incomplete statistics, including Audemars Piguet, Lange, IWC, Chanel, Cartier …
“APRP” was initially called “RP.” Still, in 1992, due to financial problems, Dominique Renaud and Giulio Papi sold most of their shares to Audemars Piguet, which was entirely controlled by Audemars Piguet, and was renamed “APRP.”
Audemars Piguet now holds nearly 80% of APRP shares. According to the contract, half of the high-end movements produced by APRP must supply to Audemars Piguet, and the other half can sell. APRP, as Audemars Piguet’s son, must give priority to Audemars Piguet’s needs.
It is awkward for Richard Mille, who had no R & D capabilities before. The wind and rain are swaying, maybe one day you can’t take the movement from APRP, or APRP plays a little smart, sells to Richard Mille look-alike defective products, delays the delivery time …
Therefore, to cooperate well for a long time, Richard Mille transferred 10% of the shares to Audemars Piguet and became Audemars Piguet’s brother company. Even part of Richard Miller’s stores was left to Audemars Piguet to operate.
But this share is not too much, although Richard Mille and Audemars Piguet have a close relationship, they are not close enough. At the same time, the movements supplied by APRP are all high-end and complicated models, with long waiting times for delivery, and the finished watches after assembly are expensive.
So Richard Mille Must find another sports supplier to meet the basic needs. Since RM 010, Vaucher Manufacture Fleurier became Richard Mille’s primary source of movement.
Vaucher Manufacture FleurierBelongs to the Sandoz Foundation, second wealthiest Landolt family in the Swiss watch industry. Watches and clocks Just a side job of their family. The primary sector of the Landolt family is Novartis, one of the world’s three largest pharmaceutical companies.
Another watch brand, Parmigiani, also belongs to the Sandoz Foundation. At the same time, Hermès spent 25 million Swiss francs on buying a 25% stake in this movement factory in 2006. Therefore, the movement of Vaucher Manufacture Fleurier mainly given to Parma. Johnny, Hermes, and Richard Miller.
APRP’s movement is fully customized, so we can’t find the specific selling price. Vaucher has been selling moves for the open market. In the past few years, its official website also released the factory price of regular versions of the movement, starting at 50, with a single rate of about 8,000 yuan. In recent years, the price has risen to about 12,000 yuan.
The Vaucher movement used by Richard Mille is a semi-custom model. The overall flow of the splints, gears, and steel parts is also excellent. It uses matte, bright light, PVD black coating, and other methods, which is very intimate. Even each screw is a particular pentagon, which is more expensive.
Also, some regular timepieces of Richard Mille look-alike watches are modules superimposed on the Vaucher movement, not produced by APRP. As for how to distinguish the movement from Vaucher or APRP, you can observe the action, the watch movement using the Vaucher movement will have a four-corner “small star” Logo.
Richard Mille often works with sports stars to get their watches to participate in various games, such as sprinting, tennis. Consumers easily misunderstand that Richard Mille men watch watches can use for sports. However, in practice, it is straightforward to damage the watch.
Although Richard Mille price watches use a variety of new case materials, and even some models of the movement have specially designed, but it is still a mechanical watch. No brand of the automatic watch can be worn for a long time to engage in strenuous activities, including Richard Mille’s price Australia. Just like people, no matter how much metal armor they wear, they are still a carbon-based creature.
Even Richard Mille admitted in an interview with the New York Times that their sponsored tennis star Rafael Nadal was playing tennis with his watch. As of 2017, it has broken 5 or 6 pieces!
