Synchronize your watches to top speed. The prancing horse Ferrari and the iconic Swiss watchmaker Richard Mille have signed a multi-year partnership agreement this week. It allows both multinational corporations to jointly sponsor, promote and develop each other’s luxury brands.
“Nothing says luxury performance like a Richard Mille,” says Watch Your Style YouTuber and jewelers sales representative, Eric Rivera. “Very rarely have I sold a Richard Mille to a client that hasn’t had a nice sports car.”

They will promote each other’s brands. Ferrari and Richard Mille will also create a think tank by merging their research and design teams. In the end, they hope to create an exclusive range of limited edition watches.
“Pure performance. These are watches that are very sporty. Besides the fact that they are ultra-luxury pieces, I would say that they are ultra-sporty pieces,” says Rivera. “It’s something targeted towards the guy that likes the fancy sports car. There is always going to be a direct correlation between the two.”
Richard Mille praises the Ferrari deal:
“The whole team is thrilled about the collaboration with Ferrari and committed to creating a strong and passionate partnership.’’
Ferrari sees checkered flags
“Ferrari and Richard Mille share many common values, from technology to use of similar materials, as well as the passion we put into coming up with and designing our products. Both brands bear the name of their founder and represent their dreams and visions. The partnership will have a wide reach and I am particularly pleased that it also extends to the Ferrari Driver Academy.
“Richard Mille is a great racing fan and shares our commitment to bringing along talented youngsters and to attract young people to motorsport.”
