British sports carmaker Aston Martin has just announced a long-term global partnership and racing collaboration with Swiss watchmaker Richard Mille. The partnership may come as a surprise but it is not without a reason. The two leading luxury brands share the same key attributes: innovation, design and technology combined with unique character and style. Both companies also respect the importance of offering handcrafted luxury products. All components of a Richard Mille watch is designed, machined and assembled by hand in the Jura Canton, while all Aston Martins are designed, engineered and handcrafted at the brand’s headquarters at Gaydon.
Richard Mille and his team will work directly with the design team at Aston Martin on a new collection of exclusive Richard Mille watches featuring the iconic Aston Martin wings. Richard Mille will also support the Aston Martin Racing team in major motorsport events such as the FIA World Endurance Championship, 24 Hours of Le Mans and Nürburgring 24 Hours.
