Object of Desire: Richard Mille Bon Bon RM 07-03 Automatic Myrtille

By Lynette Kee

As a watchmaker who charted many technical marvels, Richard Mille’s latest collection rendered a sweet surprise — quite literally. The aptly named 10-piece Bonbon (French for a sweet or small confection) collection features three of Richard Mille’s flagship models as its foundation across two lines: sweets (four models) and fruits (six models). On the dial of RM 07-03 Myrtille is an assortment of candy toppings such as lollipops and liquorice — each coloured with acrylic paint and lacquered by hand — sitting atop the watch movement. The result is a timepiece that looks like it’s scooped right out of a candy jar, unwrapping to reveal a new vision of watchmaking. While the piece is unlike his other timepieces that break boundaries, it’s a vibrant way of presenting Richard Mille’s technical prowess in the art of horology, and a visual treat on the wrist.
