Artistic director of Richard Mille Melanie Treton-Monceyron has collaborated with Jackie Chan to create a one-of-its-kind wristwatch, the RM 044 JC tourbillion. The timepiece will be auctioned off at the Jackie Chan charity auction on September 14 in Beijing, with proceeds going to the Dragon’s Heart Foundation.
An allegorical as well as artistic venture, the charity’s logo is subtly embedded within the dial. Decked out in red, green and blue, the logo is symbolic of love and childhood, at once evoking the imagery of Jackie Chan with a child on each side The words ‘Dragon’s Heart’ is boldly etched in Chinese on the dial, with Chan’s emblem – the dragon – stamped at the center. The RM 055 JC tourbillion is finished in white gold and equipped with hours, minutes, a power reserve indicator (circa 70h), torque indicator and function selector.
