About Project

Richard Mille releases at least a few different $1,000,00+ watches per year, and the average price of one of their tourbillon watches ranges from about $500,000–$800,000. These are enormous numbers even by luxury watch standards.

The characteristic Richard Mille case shape is now the principal element of the brand's visual identity, ensuring that the watches are clearly recognizable, as are the spline screws visible on both the case and the inside of the movement. The movement is always visible in a Richard Mille watch.

Some billionaires were not just satisfied wearing the ordinary Richard Mille watch and thought of customizing a transparent case for it. So they broke down the original case carefully, then scan the pieces with the industrial-level high-resolution 3D scanner. For small-batch customization services, we recommend SLA 3D printing service.


  • Step 1: Break apart the original case of the Richard Mille watch.
  • Step 2: Scan the case with a high-resolution 3D scanner and post-process the auto-generated 3D model.
  • Step 3: Print the pieces with Clear Resin in an SLA 3D printer.
  • Step 4: Remove the supporting structure and post-cure the case with UV.
  • Step 5: Polish the uneven part and make adjustments manually to make it fit into the watch.
