The main elements of the movement, the escapement, going train and the winding barrel, have been specifically studied and tested to provide optimal shock and thermal resistance resulting in an extremely reliable timekeeper.
A UNIQUE 3+2 WARRANTY SERVICE CONCEPT
A watch is a fine mechanical object and as such it needs to be cared for in exactly the same way as any quality machine such as a sports car. That is to say: through the course of time the oil in the watch needs to be renewed and the mechanism checked for wear and tear in exactly the same manner one would never drive a fine car for many thousands of miles without normal servicing.
Because Richard Mille rigorously stands behind the quality and longevity of the timepieces he creates, he has taken an approach to servicing, unique in the industry, through the creation of a 3+2 warranty concept.
Every Richard Mille owner has the right to have their watch serviced free of charge within the first three years of ownership, after which the warranty is officially extended for another 2 years. This 3+2 system provides a full 5-year period warranty protection period, as long as the watch has first been properly serviced within the initial 3-year ownership period.
Such transformations are a danger for your watch and its authenticity. Any intervention on a Richard Mille watch must be carried out by one of our specialised watchmakers, who are fully trained in our manufacturing facilities in Switzerland. Meticulous recordkeeping at Richard Mille After Sales Service that ensures each watch’s service record accurately describes the entire service history of the timepiece. This attention to detail protects owners and also protects each watch.
Oil is at the heart of every machine, and oil’s ability to lubricate is limited to a specific period of time as well the amount of metallic particles it can absorb, exactly as we experience in automotive engines.
We advise having the watch serviced regularly every 3 years, and its water resistance checked yearly if the watch is subjected to immersion on a regular basis.
