Swan songs in the famous Richard Mille chronograph series are limited.
To celebrate the 13th anniversary of the establishment of the RM 011 chronograph, Richard Mille launched the latest RM 11-03 Automatic Ultimate Edition of the series.
The unique combination of TPT® carbon and turquoise TPT® quartz is novelty. The case is equipped with a self-winding RMAC1 with a flyback chronograph function, a large date window near 12 o’clock and a month display at 4 o’clock. The details of the movement are made of titanium, equipped with a double barrel and a 55-hour power reserve.
Richard Mille RM 11-03 McLaren Flyback Chronograph
McLaren Motor Company and Richard Mille unveiled their first timepiece at the 88th Geneva International Motor Show
When I received a call from Richard Mille to participate in this year’s Geneva Motor Show, I was pretty sure of one thing-the launched watch would not fly under the radar. Although guaranteed to be full of material innovation, it is almost inevitable that not everyone has a cup of tea. The brand new RM 11-03 does not disappoint.
Richard Mille (Richard Mille) and McLaren Automotive (McLaren Automotive) cooperated last year, this is their first watch produced as a team. This watch is the shared vision of McLaren Design Director Rob Melville and Richard Mille engineer Fabrice Namura.
If you buy a car, you will get the first discount on the same buy replicas watch (unfortunately, at least you can’t buy a watch now, not a car). The RMAC3 self-winding movement was first launched in 2016 and has a flyback chronograph and 55-hour power reserve.
Why this watch is important
Except that this is the first of the partners, the watch itself is still very angry. When two performance-oriented organizations come together, the results are extreme and correct. From a design point of view, the RM 11-03 is inspired by McLaren’s past racing cars. For example, the titanium putter looks like a McLaren 720S headlight. The shape of the titanium insert is similar to the intake pipe of the McLaren F1. The intricate grade 5 titanium crown is shaped like a McLaren wheel (with the McLaren logo on the bezel at 6 o’clock). fake watches uk
The case is interwoven with carbon fiber TPT and orange quartz TPT; TPT stands for Thin Ply Technology, which is a carbon fiber layering method first proposed by Richard Mille in 2013. The dark layer is carbon fiber, and the magma orange layer is silica fiber (orange is iconic for McLaren).
From an aesthetic point of view, this does not suit me, but I think the use of high-tech materials should be praised. Richard Mille (Richard Mille) actually made the new base plate and bridge frame for McLaren (RM 11-03 McLaren) grade 5 titanium alloy treated with PVD (all of which are to improve the function of the gear train). so cool.
Those familiar with RM11-02 ceramic and RM11-02 NPTP will recognize additional buttons at 9 o’clock (for setting the second time zone) and at 2 and 5 o’clock for the stop/start and reset functions of the chronograph . Like all Richard Mille movements, the RMAC3 movement is carefully chamfered and polished by hand. The dial has an annual calendar and oversized date, as well as a 12-hour chronograph and countdown counter, with yellow accents on the hour scale. If this is the beginning, it is difficult to imagine where these two next steps will go.
