Watchmaker Explained

By April 28, 2012Nat-news

Thursday nights dinner between Natalie and Richard Mille was a bit of a head scratcher. Well, scratch no more, because Natnat found the answer over at Haute Time. Synergy!

On Thursday April 26, Haute Time Curator, Seth Semilof, had the opportunity to interview watch legend Richard Mille who was in New York City, for the announcement of the New Ambassador of Richard Mille, or as he calls it, “New Friend,” actress Natalia (sic) Portman.

The evening was a very special, small affair. It was a intimate dinner for Ms. Portman to introduce herself to the brand and to meet with her charity, Free the Children, that Richard Mille will support through proceeds. These kinds of collaborations with celebrities are usually about giving back.

What was so interesting, was Natalie Portman didn’t have any paparazzi following her. She was relaxed, laughing and enjoying her time with Mr Mille and guests. At the end of the night, I was most impressed with how she kindly said goodbye to everyone and knew everyone’s name. She even came and said goodbye to me, and asked my name, since we were not introduced earlier. That type of attitude is exactly why she is one of the most special actresses of our time and why she makes a perfect Friend for Richard Mille.

    Richard Mille is certainly an intelligent man, because he chose Natalie to his really first-class watches to marketing – and why not?
    “What touches Natalie will be pure gold!”

    Thats what makes Natalie Awesome!Her charm and kindness will no doubt bring on more sponsors to her charity organizations and at the same time can lend her person to support the brand and items these sponsors sells like Dior,Rodarte and now Richard Mille.

    Ok, this interests me much more than perfume. The craftsmanship that goes into a good mechanical or automatic watch is extraordinary and fascinating. It is one useless luxury item that I would splurge on if I had the money. So much nicer than jewelry. What I hate is that they often turn women’s watches into jewelry, there is no need to embellish something that functions so beautifully. Some of Richard Mille watches look really good.
