SKELETONISED AUTOMATIC

A REVOLUTIONARY ASSERTION OF THE BRAND'S GRAMMAR

This automatic model benefits from the application of all our technical knowledge in terms of design, choice of materials (titanium bridges, screws and baseplate) and experience gained during the creation of our previous tourbillon models. Remaining focused on the reliability of the movement and the correspondence between each creation and the individual way it is used by its owner, we developed the concept of a variable-geometry rotor for this model. Thanks to a fine, 6-positional adjustment of the wings on the rotor mass, the automatic winding system can be adapted perfectly to the personal dynamic activity of the wearer, thus diminishing the risk of over - or under- winding.

Main characteristics

Rotor with variable geometry. This exclusive RICHARD MILLE design allows the rewinding of the mainspring to be adapted most effectively to the user’s activity level within sports or leisure environments.
By adjusting the six positional setting of the rib’s placement, the rotor’s inertia is modified, either speeding up the winding process in the case of minimal arm and hand movements, or slowing it down when high activity sports are pursued. As a result, this invention allows the movement’s winding mechanism to be optimized and personalized to the owner’s lifestyle.

01
CALIBER RM 005-S
Skeletonized automatic movement with hours, minutes, seconds, date and adjustable rotor geometry.

DATE DISPLAY Semi-instantaneous, placed in a vertical aperture at 7 o’clock. The calendar disc of sapphire crystal is treated with non-reflective coating on both sides.

02
CALIBER RM 005-S
Skeletonized automatic movement with hours, minutes, seconds, date and adjustable rotor geometry.

SPLINE SCREWS IN GRADE 5 TITANIUM FOR THE BRIDGES AND CASE This permits better control of the torque applied to the screws during assembly. These screws are therefore unaffected by physical manipulation during assembly or disassembly and age well.

03
CALIBER RM 005-S
Skeletonized automatic movement with hours, minutes, seconds, date and adjustable rotor geometry.

BASEPLATE, BRIDGES AND BALANCE COCK MADE OF TITANIUM These components in grade 2 titanium with black PVD coating allows the whole assembly to be given great rigidity, as well as precise surface flatness which is essentialfor the perfect functioning of the gear train. The skeletonized baseplate was subjected to separate and extensive validation tests to insure optimal strength requirements.

WATCHCASE RM 010

This was the subject of an entire year of research and development. With regard to the production of each case, 68 different stamping operations are required for the three main components (bezel, middle section and case back). The machine tooling process requires 8 days of adjusting the machines for the bezel, 5 days for the middle section and 5 days for the case back. Prior to this process, developing a methodology for carrying out this series of operations took 120 hours, the drawings for the tools 130 hours, and implementation 180 hours. Each rough case involves 202 separate machining operations.
The design and execution of the watch demonstrates a complete conceptual approach to the movement, case and dial. As a result, everything has been constructed according to an extremely rigorous specification, in the manner of the analytical engineering methods used in the design of Formula 1 racing cars where the chassis and the engine are developed in complete harmony. For example,
a casing ring is no longer used and the movement is mounted on chassis mounting rubbers (ISO SW) fixed by 4 titanium screws. Features such as these are evidence of uncompromising workmanship. The tripartite case is water resistant to 50 meters, ensured by three Nitril O-ring seals.
The case is assembled with 12 spline screws in grade 5 titanium and abrasion resistant washers
in copper-nickel-zinc alloy.

DOUBLE BARREL SYSTEM

The double barrel system helps improve torque stability over a longer period. This is achieved by utilizing more turns of the barrel, thereby reducing pressure and wear on the teeth, bearings and pivots, resulting in improved long-term performance.
