Not content with signing up Honda-McLaren and new US-based Haas Formula 1 teams in the space of a fortnight, Richard Mille has now signed a long-term agreement with British supercar manufacturer Aston Martin.
The partnership will result in Richard Mille watchmakers working directly with the Aston Martin design team – led by chief creative officer Marek Reichman – to develop a collection of watches bearing the iconic Aston Martin wings.
Richard Mille said: “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. The spirit of embracing mechanical challenges forms an integral part of both watches and cutting edge automotive design.”
In addition, 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.
Katia Bassi, managing director AM Brands, added: “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.”
