Brazilian Formula 1 driver Felipe Massa is the first sporting figure to have joined the Richard Mille family. A long-time test driver for Richard Mille watches, it was he who enabled the brand to initiate and accomplish astonishing feats in watchmaking development. The RM 011, the second timepiece in the “10th Anniversary” collection is an emblematic model by Richard Mille, named for Felipe Massa from its very conception. The RMAC1 movement heralds the brand’s first flyback chronograph.
Crafted entirely in grade 5 titanium and hand finished, the caliber features an annual calendar, a 60-minute flyback chronograph and a countdown function, assembled for this anniversary edition inside an NTPT® carbon case, a material unique to Richard Mille, offering remarkable resistance and a unique appearance.
Limited edition of 100 pieces.
