Swiss luxury watchmaker Richard Mille is making some serious headway in the world of motorsports this year.
After recently announcing its partnership with Formula One’s McLaren-Honda team, the watchmaker has now signed off on a long-term contract with British luxury car maker, Aston Martin.
This exciting new collaboration will see the skilled boffins at Richard Mille working directly with the design team at Aston Martin, led by its Chief Creative Officer, Marek Reichman.
Collectors and fans of both brands can expect a bold collection of exclusive Richard Mille watches featuring the iconic Aston Martin wings and cutting edge design using advanced materials which both names are renowned for.
“We are passionate about the world of luxury sports cars, it has always been a personal interest of mine and Aston Martin is the perfect partner for us,” said company CEO, Richard Mille.
“The spirit of embracing mechanical challenges forms an integral part of both watches and cutting edge automotive design.”
In 2016 Richard Mille will be supporting the Aston Martin Racing team in the FIA World Endurance Championship, 24 Hours of Le Mans and Nürburgring 24 Hours alongside its Formula One efforts.
Katia Bassi who is the Managing Director of AM Brands concluded: “We are delighted to be partnering with Richard Mille, a company that stands for exceptional performance and design excellence, just like Aston Martin. We are looking forward to working with Richard Mille over the coming years to develop a collection of luxury high performance watches.”
