Inspired by the extraordinary sailing vessels of the yacht builders Perini Navi of Viareggio, Italy, the RM 014 echoes the visual elements and nautical details found on those famous craft.
The shapes of the crown and the case outlines, the tourbillon and winding barrel bridges, the titanium screws of the case and movement, as well as many other elements are directly inspired by details found on the ocean going vessels created by Perini Navi. The RM 014-1 marks an exceptional premiere of oceanic themes within the collection of Richard Mille Watches.
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 75 hours (indicated on the numeric scale positioned between 1 and 2 o’clock)
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. A hand near 4 o’clock displays the selected function: C-(Carica) winding, N-(Neutrale) neutral, L-(Lancette) hand setting.
CALIBER RM 014 MARINE Manual winding tourbillon movement with hours, minutes, power reserve indicator, torque indicator and function selector.
