Rafael Nadal and his Richard Miller RM 27-04 at the 2022 Australian Open

Rafael Nadal has been an ambassador for watchmaker Richard Mille since 2010, and the collaboration has been fruitful. Since he put on the RM 027 RN, the rest is history. Since then, the Swiss watchmaker has released numerous Nadal-named products. Of course, no one can forget the million-dollar timepiece, the RM 27-04 was launched in September 2020 to commemorate the 10th anniversary of the spectacular collaboration between the innovative watch brand and the Spanish tennis superstar.

Rafael Nadal and Richard Mille: The duo we didn’t know we needed
If you’ve been following the 2022 Australian Open, you’ve probably noticed the watch on Rafael Nadal’s right wrist. The watch has remained Nadal’s faithful companion throughout the tournament – even when those balls were smashed to the ground on the court. Rafael played some intense matches in his first major of 2022, including a five-set match against Denis Shapovalov.

Richard Miller RM 27-04
Inspired by the way tennis rackets are threaded, the mechanism of the Richard Mille RM 27-04 is entirely supported by an 855mm square micro-blasted mesh, which includes a braided steel cable measuring just 0.27mm in diameter. The steel cable is attached to the turnbuckle at the 5 o’clock position. Then “braid” above and below the main string to create “cross strings”. The cable passes through the hollow grade 5 titanium flange 38 times before ending the run at another turnbuckle at the 10 o’clock position.

The movement is placed diagonally. It is attached to the grid by five grade 5 polished titanium hooks coated with red gold PVD​​ that extend from the back of the baseplate. Just as players add dampers to their strings, so do the tourbillon sleeve, barrel and hands around the 6 o’clock position.

As far as watchmaking is concerned, this type of layout is unprecedented.

Like all Nadal-specific Richard Mille timepieces, the RM 27-04 is extremely lightweight. Only 30 grams including strap. This watch is known to be extremely shock resistant, which is a must if you plan to wear it while exercising. The movement consists of a 1-minute tourbillon suspended within the case that resists an acceleration of 12,000 Gs, a personal record even for Richard Mille.

Rafael Nadal and Richard Miller RM 27-04: A match at the 2022 Australian Open

When Rafael Nadal won in 2020, it marked not only his 13th French Open title, but his 20th Grand Slam title, a historic milestone. With this feat, he is tied with Roger Federer and Novak Djokovic. And now, with his historic victory at the 2022 Australian Open, he has put his name in the annals of history forever. World No. 1 AND Hublot ambassador Novak Djokovic was not in attendance because he was expelled from Australia ahead of the tournament.

The prevailing hypothesis now is that the 35-year-old is wearing the RM 27-04 as a lucky charm in Australia. He wore it when he won the 2020 French Open.

into details
The case measures 38.4mm x 47.25mm x 11.40mm and is made of TitaCarb, a compound exclusive to Richard Mille.

As far as the movement is concerned, the watch is powered by a hand-wound movement with a one-minute tourbillon. The movement offers a power reserve of up to 38 hours at a frequency of 21,600 vph. The agency is certified to withstand magnetic fields up to 12,000 Gs. fashion watch

Richard Mille RM 50-03 – F1 technology meets watchmaking

We all know fake Richard Mille is a great watch maker – the unique case shape is probably one of the most recognizable in the entire watch industry.

When we talk about collectible and rare watches at The Collectors Circle, we definitely have to talk about Richard Mille’s RM 50-03 McLaren F1, as the luxury brand brings the perfection of watchmaking to life with this masterpiece.

Technological innovation and the constant quest for perfection and progress are the common denominators that connect McLaren and Richard Mille, which is why the two companies have teamed up to create the lightest mechanical chronograph ever built.

Created in collaboration with Formula 1 designers and engineers, the Richard Mille movement is a technological masterpiece with extraordinary mechanical power. The movement weighs only 7 grams and combines a tourbillon with a split-seconds chronograph. Including the wristband, the entire watch weighs less than 40 grams – no kidding! This is all thanks to F1 technology and the use of materials such as grade 5 titanium, carbon TPT and Graph TPT. With the infusion of these materials, Richard Mille entered a new level in watchmaking and was a pioneer in the use of raw materials other than gold, steel or platinum.

For example, Graph TPT is 6 times lighter than steel but 200 times more durable.

With RM 50-30, the brand elevates timekeeping to the highest technical art form. Well done Richard Miller! Collectors Circle expresses its gratitude for being a pioneer in the watch industry.

Hands On: Richard Mille RM50-03 McLaren F1

As the name suggests, this is a fairly complicated watch and it won’t be quick to explain.

What’s the deal with McLaren? What about F1? What does a second chronograph mean? What about the tourbillon?

We’ll take a quick look at the brand, then dive into the 50-03 to see what it’s like to wear a 38-gram watch (yes, you read that right: not pounds, not ounces, grams! Includes strap, lessons).

It’s easy to spot Richard Mille timepieces, and the tonneau case has always been a favorite of the brand and an exotic material. The first model was launched in 2001.

The brand’s goal is clear: to bring aero and F1 car performance in a watch. So, we understand why Mr. Miller decided to work with McLaren and the automotive world.

The first feeling of wearing it is “wow”.

The tonneau case gives a sturdy and heavy look, and we expected it to be heavy and annoying on the wrist. This watch is just the opposite: in addition to being incredibly comfortable, it’s like not wearing it at all.

You will be amazed when you wear such a lightweight Richard Mille for the first time.

Collectors around the world are debating the “weight factor”. Some people like to wear a fake watches for sale on their wrist and will be annoyed by such a light watch.

The first element that grabs our attention is the orange strap. It might seem trivial to start with the details of the strap, but we are ItalianWatchSpotter.

Not only the color, but also the ultra-light nylon without the buckle. Yes, the strap is elastic and doesn’t need to be opened, you just stretch it a bit and let it slide from your hand to your wrist.

There you have it, you’re wearing the world’s lightest split chronograph.

Now let’s move to the case

This material can only be innovative, Graph TPT®, an evolution of the classic Carbon TPT® infused with graphene. This nanomaterial has amazing properties: 6 times lighter than steel, but 200 times harder. The housing is made from 30 micron (0.03 mm) sheets that are glued and crossed together, then cut to final shape.

It measures 44.50mm x 49.65mm and measures 16.10mm thick. 1.5cm certainly doesn’t make this watch slim, but it’s not annoying.

The side pushrods are hollow, reminiscent of McLaren’s air intake design and aerodynamics.

The RM50-03 features a hand-wound tourbillon split-seconds chronograph with hour and 30-minute recorders, as well as power reserve, torque and function indicators.

This is a world record movement: weighing only 7 grams, it can handle up to 5000 grams.

Skeleton watches have always been attractive, but legibility isn’t always easy and quick. The red tones of the hour and minute hands are easy to distinguish. The minute hand of the chronograph is thinner and the hands are yellow and red.

At the 12 o’clock position, we can see two indicators, which may look the same at first glance. These functions are all related to movement operation: power reserve and torque indicator. On the left we find a small coloured arch from 70 to 10 showing how much power is left, while on the right we have the torque indicator showing the tension of the spring in the barrel. This is Richard Mille’s remarkable complication since its first release in 2001: the RM001.

For us, the best are details that are imperceptible to the untrained eye. They are our mission.
A function indicator might be of little use, but it comes in handy in such a complicated watch.

It’s easy to explain: there are three letters, WNH. A small arrow shows one of them, telling us where the crown is.

“W” for winding, “N” for neutral (when wearing the watch), and “H” for hand setting.

After the details, our favorite is the possibility of customizing the watch, and Richard Mille has us (partially) satisfied. The 50-03 was born with the red crown and details, but this is only a prototype. To connect more with McLaren, the final version is orange.

The only remaining customization is the strap, which is available in nylon (black or orange) or rubber (black only).

RICHARD MILLE RM UP-01: The thinnest mechanical watch

Adding a new dimension to the enduring challenge of ultra-thinness among major Haute Horlogerie brands, Richard Mille has just set a new world record in the thinnest mechanical watch category with his new RM UP-01 Ferrari.

At just 1.75mm thick, the Richard Mille RM UP-01 surpasses the thinness record set earlier this year by the Bulgari Octo Finissimo Ultra (1.80mm). Combining the most modern design with performance, aesthetics and robustness, this new ultra-thin watch was developed in collaboration with the renowned Italian car brand Ferrari.

The RM UP-01 Ferrari is the culmination of years of work and over 6,000 hours of development and laboratory testing. This ultra-thin watch is equipped with a sturdy hand-wound mechanical movement that can withstand accelerations of over 5,000 grams.

The Richard Mille RM UP-01 Ferrari has a monolithic case made of grade 5 titanium. Its case back and bezel are satin-finished with polished bevels. The ultra-thin case is secured with 13 grade 5 titanium spline screws and 316L stainless steel wear-resistant washers, and is water-resistant to 10 meters.

This watch features a distinctive face (bezel) design. It displays the hours and minutes on the upper sub-dial. This sub-dial is topped with sapphire crystal glass. On the upper right of the dial is the balance wheel dial, protected by sapphire crystal.

On the top left you will find an integrated function selector with two positions: W (winding) and H (manual setting). The rotating crown between 7 o’clock and 8 o’clock provides two functions: manual winding movement and time setting. Both crowns are protected with black ceramic inserts to ensure water resistance and eliminate friction.

This perfect replica watches features a patented ultra-flat escapement jointly developed by Audemars Piguet and Richard Mille. This new escapement with a titanium balance wheel significantly reduces the thickness of the movement while offering the same safety as a traditional Swiss anchor escapement. The new patented ultra-flat escapement eliminates components such as guard pins and safety rollers to keep the movement thin.

The hand-wound mechanical movement with hours, minutes and function selectors has a power reserve of 45 hours.

Its baseplates and bridges are made of grade 5 titanium, a biocompatible, highly corrosion-resistant and strong alloy. The hollow base plate undergoes individual and extensive verification testing to ensure that it meets stringent optimum strength requirements.

For this watch, Richard Mille has provided an ultra-thin interpretation of its signature tonneau shape. The grade 5 titanium case is just 1.75mm thick, and the beating movement inside is 1.18mm thick.

The 23-jewel hand-wound extra-flat movement measures 41.45mm long and 28.85mm wide. It is balanced at 28’800 vph (4 Hz).

All titanium case components of this ultra-thin timepiece are machined by the Richard Mille movement department to meet the extremely tight machining tolerances of a single micron. The Ferrari Prancing Horse logo and all references on the case are laser engraved.

The Richard Mille RM UP-01 watch is a limited edition. It only weighs 30 grams including the strap.

Richard Mille

The Master of Modern Watchmaking – the namesake brand embodies Richard Mille’s vision for 21st century watchmaking: an avant-garde luxury watch that symbolises a subversion of the past.

A Brief History of Richard Mille
Born in Draguignan, France in 1951, Richard Mille luxury studied marketing and entered watchmaking almost by accident. Richard Mille was the export manager of the French watchmaking company Finhor before being promoted to director of numerous watchmaking brands following the Matra Group’s acquisition of Finhor.

In 1990, he became CEO of Mauboussin’s watchmaking department and headed the jewelry department. He was deeply involved in the design process, and his insight into design combined with a love of mechanics gave rise to the idea of ​​the Richard Mille watch as we know it today.

“I want to make the watch of my dreams, I can’t find it anywhere” – Richard Miller

With technological innovation, art and a culture of fine watchmaking, Richard Mille became a dominant player in modern watchmaking, regarded by many as the ultimate expression of wealth.

From the very beginning, Richard Mille’s plan was to create a Formula 1 car in the world of watchmaking, with no regard for production costs, focusing on the use of modern production techniques and high-tech materials for maximum performance. Extremely avant-garde and technically powerful, Richard Mille transforms advanced technology and futuristic materials into pure design and extraordinary creativity while fusing traditional watchmaking craftsmanship.

Marking a break in watchmaking history, Richard Mille revolutionized the world of luxury watches, replicating the way automotive engineers build Formula 1 cars, taking design, material use, components and function into account, and delivering them with flawless finish. Execution.

In 2001, the watch industry saw the first Richard Mille RM 001 at Baselworld in 2001, with the support of renowned Swiss movement manufacturers including Audemars Piguet Renaud et Papi. A limited release, the RM 001 has firmly established itself as one of the most iconic and unique timepieces in the world.

In 2007, Richard Mille became a member of the Haute Horlogerie Foundation and has since received the most coveted accolade in the horological world, the Golden Eagle.

Richard Mille himself is an example of the lifestyle his eponymous brand has influenced, regularly appearing in sports cars and rowing races, travelling the world in private jets and hanging out with A-listers.

To date, Richard Mille has worked with many athletes and celebrities, involving them in the design process to create extraordinary timepieces that can perform under extreme conditions and critical stress tests. Tourbillon escapements in traditional watchmaking are notoriously fragile, and Richard Mille proved this theory wrong with his RM036 “G-Sensor Tourbillon”, which can withstand the damage to most tourbillon-based movements various forces. Richard Mille watches are known to be resistant to shocks up to 5000G and durable enough to be worn in extreme sports like tennis, golf, track and field and skiing. Richard Mille redefines the traditional view of high-end watch collecting and encourages his elite clients to wear Richard Mille watches for all occasions rather than keeping them in a safe.

Facts about Richard Mille
The size and shape of any Richard Mille watch is instantly recognizable, even from a distance. Often composed of three layers, Richard Mille’s iconic sandwich tonneau case is one of the most expensive and difficult to manufacture. The three curved decks had to be machined together with extreme precision to keep moisture or dust out. fake Richard Mille Rafael Nadal

Richard Mille is no stranger to using high-tech materials commonly used in Formula 1 and aerospace in watches. Richard Mille invests millions of dollars in research and development of materials such as carbon nanotubes, toughened ceramics, NTPT® carbon, silicon nitride, and gold fused with carbon and quartz. Another famous Richard Mille case material is the full sapphire crystal case, which requires an absolutely insane 1500 hours of sapphire machining on a single watch.

To create horological innovations for the 21st century, Richard Mille has redeveloped new watch movements that are different from their traditional Geneva counterparts. Richard Mille movement parts are often a mix of titanium and other materials, and Richard Mille’s professional team of watchmakers and micro-engineers have spent years perfecting and innovating.

popular Richard Mille models

Launched in 2007, the RM 11 is the most recognizable and classic watch in the Richard Mille collection. The classic Tonneau case features a unique and striking design with 20 grade 5 titanium spline screws. Each case typically involves 202 individual machining operations.

Launched in 2014, the RM 61, nicknamed “Baby Blake”, is the result of a collaboration with world champion Yohan Blake. The Richard Mille RM 61-01 is only available in limited parts and is shock tested to withstand shocks in excess of 5,000Gs.

The 50.24mm x 42.7mm case is made of TZP black ceramic with an NTPT carbon case strap. Two “claw marks” high-tech bridges reveal the RMUL2 movement through a skeletonized “dial”.

Lightness and durability are the main principles guiding Richard Mille’s watches for Rafael Nadal. Nicknamed “Baby Nadal”, the RM 35-02 was the sixth watch created for Rafael Nadal in 2016, followed by the RM27-03 the following year. The RM35-02 has a case length of 49.94mm, a thickness of 13.15mm and a width of 44.50mm. The titanium RMAL1 movement is supported by 4 peripheral V-bridges that accentuate the integrated moving elements.

Richard Mille RM 35-03 Rafael Nadal: The Butterfly Effect

The Richard Mille Manufacture recently launched the RM 35-03 “Baby Nadal” watch collection. The new instrument features an innovative butterfly rotor. Frank sans C will tell you everything you need to know in a very short (wing) time span.

Let’s go back in time, before Rafael Nadal won his 21st Grand Slam title at the Australian Open last January and became the all-time record champion. In December 2021, his old friend Richard Mille launched the RM 35-03 Rafael Nadal. This is the fourth in the “Baby Nadal” series. Why take this name? Because the performance and technology of these watches come from the RM 027 tourbillon watches worn by Spanish players on the tennis court.

“We all strive for excellence in our respective fields. We speak the same language, Richard and I. We are both passionate about what we do. Keeping the flames of that passion alive for what we do every day is for me Crucially. Even though I don’t wear the RM 035 model for the race, it’s heartening to feel the confidence he and the team have shown me to take part in this bizarre adventure,” shared Rafa Nadal.

The butterfly oscillating weight is an incredible innovation for the new RM 35-03 Automatic Rafael Nadal watch

Beware, this one has no tourbillon. Rather, it’s an extraordinary innovation with significant technology and utility. The new RM 35-03 Automatic Rafael Nadal integrates a unique winding mechanism. In fact, the wearer can directly control it.

The watchmaker’s engineers at the Swiss watchmaker spent three years developing this special rotor, which they named the “Butterfly”. And for good reason! This pendulum consists of two identical parts that can be unfolded 90° to face each other.

Owner control over a winding movement: Richard Mille’s mechanical revolution
This capability is reminiscent of Richard Mille’s famous “variable geometry rotor.” This allows the wearer to adjust the sensitivity of the winding mechanism according to their activity. Except this is a revolution: no need to go to the watchmaker to change the rotor.

In fact, the RM 35-03 displays a pusher at 7 o’clock, allowing the operation of the clever system and the placement of the two movable wings as required. You can glue them together, like an oscillating weight, to wind the movement. Or face to face to balance the rotor and stop the winding mechanism. This is the position you must choose when exercising with this watch. Because it can avoid excessive winding of the movement, so as not to damage the movement.

As a watchmaking marvel, the watch also features an “on/off” indicator. The small button is very useful as it allows the wearer to see the status of the rotor whether it is activated or not. It is located at 6 o’clock in the internal structure of the Calibre RMAL2. Treated in black PVD, this charming grade 5 titanium movement showcases a very vivid skeleton, complete with insect wings. Richard Mille fake

We’re not going to explain the butterfly system’s haptic feedback in detail. Frank sans C has done it. But we have to mention the presence of the flanges and numerals sloping inwards to create the effect of depth and draw the eye inside the movement.

another button for another indicator
The instrument also has a second button. A small indicator is located at 2 o’clock on the tonneau-shaped case. It controls the crown’s function selector (red hand at 2 o’clock). It allows the wearer to choose between winding (W), neutral (N) and manual setting (H) functions. A car’s gearbox for the movement (the motor of the fake watches for sale), a tribute to the automotive industry that Maison loved so much.

The RM 35-03 Automatic Rafael Nadal, not one but two versions, uses high-tech materials. Richard Mille is releasing a new work in two different versions. Both reflect the manufacturer’s expertise in implementing breakthrough materials.

Both are the same price, so it’s your choice. One is a blue Quartz TPT® with a white Quartz TPT® case. The other is White Quartz TPT® and Carbon TPT® and Carbon TPT® Housing. Each comes with a rubber strap, either white or blue depending on the model. perfect replica watches

RM 47 Tourbillon: Richard Mille unveils new model

At the intersection of art and philosophy. The new model is considered a dedication to Japanese culture. Richard Mille presents the RM 47 Tourbillon, the result of nearly four years of meticulous aesthetic research and design.

This artistic new timepiece features a very compact movement designed to accommodate stylish 100% handcrafted samurai armor. The idea for the model emerged during a friendly conversation between Richard Mille and two-time Formula 1 world champion Fernando Alonso, a passionate admirer of traditional Japanese art and samurai principles.

The new timepieces open up new creative horizons and live up to the brand’s prestigious collection of decorative watches. Entirely hand-carved by Pierre-Alain Lauzeron and painted by his wife Valerie Lauzeron, the image of the samurai armor reflects aspects of indigenous Japanese culture. The armor embodies the spirit of Bushido and the ethics of the samurai, whose values ​​are still prevalent in Japanese society, and is made of 3N gold – a reference to ancient Japan used to decorate some of the country’s finest temples of gold leaf, as well as some traditional arts.

Many details are reminiscent of Asano, who became the embodiment of the Bushido spirit. The 18th-century patriarch Asano Nagano had 47 ronin under his command. After his death, they avenged the master and left this world as well. Their family crest – each samurai family has its own – is displayed on the tourbillon at 6 o’clock. This coat of arms, representing two crossed eagle feathers, symbolizing strength in battle and the power of an overlord, was also engraved on the shield of a military helmet. The crown is made of titanium, TPT® carbon and polished 3N gold with a Japanese maple scalloped pattern that symbolizes the seasons as well as elegance, beauty and the transience of life. Below are two swords in their scabbards, with the sharp side facing up, new 2022 replica watches

The execution of this decoration, more like a sculpture than just a carving, requires great patience, great care, great skill and dedication. “Swords and chisels, sharp blades and cuts, the accuracy of which depends on the skill of the engraver – there are many similarities between the qualities required by warriors and those required by our creative profession,” Pierre-Alain Rau Zeron said. It took a total of 16 hours of engraving and 9 hours of painting—more than a day’s worth of work—to create 11 pieces of samurai armor, seamlessly embedded on all sides of the RM 47 tourbillon movement.

Military armor acts like a guardian, offering valuable protection to the hand-wound RM 47 movement with hours and minutes. For perfect movement, the main plate and skeletonized bridges are made of grade 5 titanium, a biocompatible alloy commonly used in the aerospace industry, with a black PVD ​​​coating. This combination offers high corrosion resistance, excellent hardness and ideal surface flatness.

The movement, case and decoration of the RM 47 follow a design approach that integrates all components harmoniously and efficiently. The barrel-shaped case consists of three parts: a 3N gold bezel and a TZP black ceramic caseback attached to the sides. Inspired by the spirit and values ​​of the Bushido samurai code, the unique aesthetic of the RM 47 Tourbillon of 75 pieces embodies a relentless pursuit of excellence and respect for tradition.

RM 07-01 Colored Ceramics

A graphic and colorful capsule collection with tradition at its core

Richard Mille’s undisputed female icon, the RM 07-01 collection, continues to make waves with each new iteration. Three new limited-edition models in advanced technical ceramics with colourful guilloche dials embody the RM 07-01 collection’s uncompromising approach to aesthetics and performance, combining the highest levels of mechanical watchmaking, Movement engineering and decorative finishes.

turn off volume turn off ads
All three watches in the new RM 07-01 coloured ceramic collection stand out with new case colours and graphic dial elements, and are limited to 50 pieces. The RM 07-01 Pastel Blue, RM 07-01 Pastel Pink and RM 07-01 Pastel Lavender are shots of pure summer joy, housed in a ceramic case and powered by the automatic CRMA2 in-house movement. The segmented central dial consists of a combination of ceramic inserts, rubber with a geometric pattern and a guilloché pattern handcrafted by Richard Mille.

Guillochage is a decorative craft that originated in the 16th century. In its truest form, the dial guilloché consists of individual repeating lines, cut by hand lathes, intersecting and overlapping to form a graphic pattern. Practitioners of this art, known as guillocheurs, can train for decades before they are considered masters of their craft.

Today, among the vintage-inspired watches, creative and development director Cécile Guenat considers incorporating it into Richard Mille watches, but with a unique freshness. So, in typical Richard Mille fashion, the RM 07-01 coloured ceramic watch takes this centuries-old technology and applies it in creative ways, demonstrating the brand’s ability to subvert established ideas.

The rhodium-plated red gold dial element in the center of each RM 07-01 is part of a larger pattern that is part vegetal with six lobes, part sunburst, part Art Deco and all fashion Richard Mille. Their lines are subtly aligned with the floating hour markers on the micro-sprayed titanium flange. Around the guilloche dial, emphasizing the theme of fusion of modernity and tradition, geometric ceramic and rubber elements complement the ceramic case and two-tone rubber strap.

The RM 07-01 Colored Ceramics collection is available in three colours – TZP pink ceramic with a sky blue-lilac rubber strap, TZP lilac ceramic with a coral orange rubber strap, and TZP blue ceramic with olive green rubber strap. When deciding on the colors and textures of these new models, Cécile Guenat and her team worked on multiple versions before arriving at these final configurations. “I was inspired by the Art Deco buildings you see in Miami, the pastel colors and bold patterns are so unique and convey such an amazing atmosphere and attitude.”

The use of the new coloured ceramic in the larger RM 07-01 replica watch collection is fun and vibrant at first, but it sets the stage for its exceptional performance as a case material. Thanks to its zirconia composition and sintered manufacturing process, TZP ceramics are lightweight, hypoallergenic, durable and virtually scratch-resistant. This level of performance is perfectly matched with the in-house automatic movement CRMA2, which is made of micro-blasted and plasma-treated titanium and draws its power from a 5N red gold variable geometry rotor that keeps the watch in optimal winding condition at all times. Combined with the bright energy of the two-tone rubber strap and the hand-polished lustre of the gold guilloche dial, the ceramic case of the new RM 07-01 makes up three of the most pleasing Richard Mille watches.

The “peak” of high-end sports watches? TASTING THE RM 61-01 YOHAN BLAKE ULTIMATE EDITION

In the process of constantly learning about watches, I found that not only did I learn more and more, but the price of watching watches became higher and higher. Today, I will share this article with you. (Watch model: RM61-01)

The watch I saw came from the RM 61-01 Yohan Blake Ultimate Edition watch in the Richard Mille men’s collection.

Let’s first briefly understand the source of this watch. The first RM 61-01 Yohan Blake watch was born in 2014. Yohan Blake, a Jamaican sprinter, took a place in the celebrity list of track and field stars. If this is the first time you know this watch, you can probably understand its inspiration – a high-end sports watch specially developed for sports.

The RM 61-01 Yohan Blake Ultimate Edition we see now is the 2020 launch of Richard Mille and the finale of this model and its unique collection. The watch case is a big highlight. First of all, it is asymmetrical. The case is deliberately extended on one side from 2 o’clock to 5 o’clock, forming a “narrow left and wide right” shape. The main purpose of this design is not For the sake of curiosity, but to avoid friction between the crown and the sprinter’s wrist.

Another highlight of the case is the use of new materials. The bezel and case back of the RM 61-01 “Ultimate Edition” are made of Quartz TPT® and Carbon TPT®, a composite material that has gone through many hurdles: An extremely thin layer of silica, from which the quartz carbon fibers are separated, is soaked in a white resin, into which layers of carbon fibers are inserted and laminated by machine.

The fiber layers are then heated to 120 degrees Celsius under high pressure before being sent to Richard Mille’s factory for processing. The machining process creates random textures on this composite material, so each watch is unique.

So far, the case is finally finished. Finally, it is assembled with grade 5 titanium alloy spline screws and stainless steel washers to ensure a waterproof depth of 50 meters.

The crown is made of carbon fiber (Carbon TPT®) with an O-ring as a protection to ensure that the crown is not accidentally touched during movement.

Flange, usually refers to punching several holes around a disk-like metal body for connecting/fixing other things

The dial, with its built-in flange, is made of titanium and is galvanized black and painted in white lacquer. The hour markers and the front of the hour and minute hands are covered with fluorescent material.

In fact, the dial of the swiss watch is directly composed of the movement. The RM61-01 “Ultimate Edition” watch is equipped with the RMUL2 skeletonized manual winding movement, which provides about 55 hours of power.

This movement uses a grade 5 titanium baseplate and bridges, as we said earlier, this is a watch specially developed for sports applications, so the skeletonized baseplate and bridges have undergone an acceleration test of more than 5000 g to meet the Watches demand for high-intensity sports.

The variable inertia free-spring balance wheel ensures the reliability of the watch and long-term accuracy when the watch is subjected to vibration.

The movement also features a double barrel arrangement, which distributes the stored power to the two winding barrels, which increases the number of revolutions while reducing the stress on the teeth, etc., which improves stability.

For a long time, Richard Mille luxury has left everyone with the impression of “tough, cool, dazzling” and “million threshold”. This is true from the perspective of shape and market conditions, but I also seem to see its rigorous technical performance. and consideration of everyday practicality. In any case, the RM 61-01 Yohan Blake Ultimate Edition brings the perfect end to the 6-year career of this watch.
