This piece furthermore premieres an all-new state of the art split-seconds mechanism developed by the engineers at Richard Mille’s R & D department in collaboration with APR&P (Audemars Piguet Renaud & Papi).
The traditional 8-column wheel of the brand’s prior chronographs has been replaced by a 6-column wheel. This mechanism, which controls the various split-seconds rockers, improves the chronograph’s functions, optimising simultaneous actions and the function lock while ensuring the stability of its settings. In-depth study of the split-seconds clamp has led to improved ergonomics in the new version.
RM 008 TOURBILLON
The RM 008 combines a tourbillon and a split-seconds chronograph, a first for the collection. Bringing together these two complications within a single calibre constitutes a stunning technical achievement.
RM 056 TOURBILLON
FELIPE MASSA - SAPPHIRE
The first ever watch to have a case entirely machined of sapphire, the RM 056 Felipe Massa runs on the RMCC1 calibre, combining bold styling and daring feats of engineering.
RM 50-02 TOURBILLON
AIRBUS CORPORATE JETS
The RM 50-02 makes use of advanced, open worked design elements of bridges and baseplate in grade 5 titanium.
The result is a visually breathtaking view of the split-seconds chronograph calibre.
