Richard Mille RM 47 Manual Winding Tourbillon 42.70mm Ceramic Black Rubber Straps Men’s Watch
“The RM 47 Tourbillon builds on Japanese crafting traditions to provide an allegory of the samurai ethics, known as “bushido”, whose values are still prevalent in Japanese society.
Grade 3N yellow gold is reminiscent of the gold leaf used in ancient Japan to decorate the country’s finest shrines as well as some traditional craftsmanship
The new RM 47 is limited edition of 75 pieces that feature gold samurai armor and swords that have been painstakingly hand carved and painted by husband-and-wife team Pierre-Alain and Valérie Lozeron.
The engraving of each piece took 16 hours, which was followed by nine hours of hand-painting.
The armor is made from 3N yellow gold and features references to the Asano clan, whom many scholars believe symbolize the true Bushidō spirit.
Each clan has a heraldic symbol known as a Kamon and the Asano’s was two crossed falcon feathers to express strength in war and authority.
This is featured on the tourbillon at six o’clock and on the winglets of the warrior’s helmet.
Another key Japanese symbol, the maple leaf, used to represent grace, beauty and brevity of life, is featured on the winding crown.”
