Timepieces should be both sophisticated and practical, easy to use, and comfortable on the wrist. The RM 003 is slightly larger than the RM 002 model that inspired it. The second time zone, which is very useful and legible, bears witness to this, as does the very handy push-piece to operate it positioned at nine o’clock. With the function indicator, via a pusher in the crown, the wearer can select from three positions.
Building upon the premiere use and consequent success of the carbon nanofibre baseplate developed for Richard Mille’s tourbillon wristwatches, a new interpretation of this high-tech material combined with a case of microblasted titanium is added to the existing collection.
Available in Titanium, 18K red or white gold, platinum, gem-set case All gray.
TORQUE INDICATOR Shows the mainspring’s tension: below 53 dNmm, the spring is too slack; at the other extreme, above 65 dNmm, excessive tension can adversely affect the running of the movement and may even cause damage.
POWER RESERVE Circa 70 hours Indicated on the numeric scale to the left of the winding barrel.
FUNCTION SELECTOR In a manner similar to a car’s gearbox, a push-button located at the center of the crown allows one to select the winding, neutral and hand setting functions with a simple push : W (Winding) – N (Neutral) – H (Hands)
CALIBER RM003-V2 Manual winding Tourbillon movement with hours, minutes, second time zone, power reserve, torque indicator and function selector.
