Richard Mille’s Bonbon
Richard Mille’s delightful Bonbon collection meets your sweet tooth needs Sweet, colorful and fruity. Yes, we are talking about candy, but it may not be what you think. Richard Mille (Richard Mille) once again issued a bold statement, showing their Bonbon series at SIHH in early January this year-10 watch series with candy and fruit as the theme, divided into “sweet” and “fruit” “Two themes. This is the last appearance of the luxury brand at the annual Geneva Trade Fair and, as always, has stirred up controversy at the Hornet’s unveiling.
Cécile Guenat, the art director of the series, said: “Bangbang-just saying the word is enough to make you smile.” “It manages to convey a combination of joy, enjoyment and sharing. The series is disruptive. Sex, elegance, boldness and fun. In a word: creativity! For me, this is indeed an opportunity to relax and relive my childhood. Nevertheless, this is an ambitious project that requires 18 months of development. Completely true to the spirit of Richard Mille, Richard Mille is a serious brand that is not afraid to break tradition.
These timepieces not only scored high on the “fun” factor, but also-Richard Mille’s reputation for technical excellence was also praised. The series is based on the three most popular models of the brand-RM 07-03, RM 16-01 and RM 37-01– with six CarbonTPT® and QuartzTPT® cases, as well as four ceramic cases. The level of handwork required to create the nominal “candy” or “fruit” (ie 3,000 titanium sculptures, hand-painted in various colors and finishes) is extraordinary. The shape of the crown is eclectic (reminiscent of a cupcake or gelato), and the dial section is painted with dozens of different shades of acrylic paint or varnish. Guenat said: “The idea is to revisit the existing series while playing color games.” “This allows me to inspire the fun of pop music. We have developed a total of 60 color palettes for this unisex series. “
Each “Sweets” timepiece is made of four models from the Bonbon series and is wrapped in two-color ceramic-ideal bases are feu or titanium dials, which come in various styles (cupcakes, marshmallows, etc.) Image processing. The RM 07-03 cupcakes are a bright spot in this regard: the fluffy maelstrom that simulates marshmallows, green, pink and yellow crayons are all eye-catching. Black is also surprisingly well used as a decorative element: huge licorice rolls are made on the dial of the RM 16-01 Réglisse.
The “Fruit” series has 6 models, paying tribute to the juicy flavors including lemon strawberry (RM 16-01 Citron et Fraise); blueberry lychee (RM 07-03 Myrtille et Litchi); and kiwi cherry (RM 37- 01 Kiwi et Cerise). Twisted lollipops, candied oranges, glue drops, jelly and ribbons of sugar crystals are just some of the eye-catching patterns that decorate these discount watches. The “sugar coating” effect of enamel powder and hourglass-grade sand helps to enhance the realism of the artwork. The gradient color case is made of carbon and quartz composite materials, and each timepiece has a different hue. Although carbon TPT is a material closely related to the brand, the turquoise color is an attractive addition-it will be brand new in 2019.
