Just as hard as diamonds, cermets reappeared in the appearance of the new Richard Mille RM 11-05 automatic return chronograph GMT, while Richard Miller continued to set foot in the fascinating world of non-antimony grade materials. In essence, the brand is equivalent to the 911, which means that its price is the same as the Porsche 911 (Turbo S, please remember, the price is the same), and it keeps its original, recognizable shape while constantly evolving. RM 11-05 includes GMT in a feature-rich movement that can power it for a long time. But first, let’s talk briefly about Cermet.
Richard Mille’s character is to seek to create lighter and more durable materials. Richard Mille found a variety of carbon, metals, ceramics, and even quartz in the appearance and movement of the movement, and even allowed the brand to produce record light watches so that their wealthy customers could Being beaten in a racing car or when falling. I’m on the tennis court. Richard Mille is as tiring as the car analogy, and his relentless pursuit of car design and material performance is indeed truly comparable to supercar manufacturers. After all, its customers are more willing to bear the cost, so why not?
As the main material category, cermets are not completely new to luxury watches. Cermet is an abbreviation for the following materials: I will give you a moment to make an educated guess… Yes, ceramics and metals. When I heard about Cermet, I immediately thought of those rare Jaeger-LeCoultre deep-sea chronographs, which are famous for using a Cermet type, and which are confused with the same name Rolex watches online shop.
2,360 Vickers hardness is the so-called “gray cermet” hardness. This is what materials scientists usually call “very hard.” From a perspective, the Gray Cermet in the RM 11-05 case is six times harder than hardened stainless steel. The latter usually runs at a frequency of 390 Vickers, which is about 12 times higher than the hardness of 210kicker in 18k gold at 210 Vickers. Cermet was co-developed with IMI Group (a British-based engineering company whose name is similar to that of Bond’s employer), and its gray color is attributed to the combination of a metal zirconium matrix and high-performance ceramic inserts.
It is very difficult to heat and press these different types of materials together, and a layer must be added to make it look beautiful enough to help justify the six-digit price tag. In particular, the challenge is to remove undesirable adhesives and obtain a homogeneous whole. The physical properties of cermets make it the material of choice for bulletproof protection (if you find yourself with a companion you might be a bit armed with pickles), external aerospace fuselage components (if you extend PJ over your arm) may be sent use. Windows) and of course the brakes of the car.
The Richard Mille RM 11-05 automatic anti-fly chronograph GMT watch in Cermet’s case size is fixed together by 20 spline screws processed in grade 5 titanium alloy, the lug diameter is 50.00mm, diameter It is 42.70mm and the total thickness is 16.15mm. Match it with the trademark arched back cover, smooth strap fusion, and the unmatched feel of the Richard Mille rubber strap but never match, and you will have super comfortable wearing. I think now the brand should consider providing accurate weight measurements of watches, so that prospective buyers can choose one model based on this number instead of another model, just as they buy Superleggera cars.
Richard Mille movement RMAC3 is still a punch: it is a chronograph with a flyback function, Greenwich Mean Time (GMT) indication and annual calendar-probably all luxury watches One of the best secrets of medium complexity. The power reserve is 50 hours (+/- 10%), the operating frequency is 28,800 vph, the moment of inertia is 4.8 mg•cm 2 and the lifting angle is 53°. The barrel shaft is made of AP20 steel-just throw it away because I know this is a controversial aspect of watchmaking today.
I guess, in contrast to the luminescent materials that were smuggled into manufacturers frantically on Christmas Eve, the exquisite carbon fiber flanges filled with “approved luminescent materials” still made the project crazy. The dial is made of sapphire crystal with a thickness of 0.40mm and is anti-glare on both sides-probably the weakest link in Richard Mille’s replica watches, because this coating tends to be on the dial itself ( Instead of the outer crystal) produces a unique blue glare. I hope this is a neutral paint. If the edge of the case sapphire crystal is 0.84 mm thicker than the thickness of the center, or the bottom plate and bridge of the movement are made of wet sandblasted titanium alloy (as opposed to high-quality old brass), these slight differences can be definite.
The ultra-high-end chronograph series started from RM 011 in 2007 and has grown to the current development level with the development of RM 11-03. Its excessive design in machinery and materials has hardly reached the matching level, and it has surpassed competitors. Pricing.
