EVOKING THE BEAUTY OF OCEAN RACING AND SEAFARING

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.

Main characteristics

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.

01
CALIBER RM 014 MARINE
Manual winding tourbillon movement with hours, minutes, power reserve indicator, torque indicator and function selector.

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.

02
CALIBER RM 014 MARINE
Manual winding tourbillon movement with hours, minutes, power reserve indicator, torque indicator and function selector.

POWER RESERVE Circa 75 hours (indicated on the numeric scale positioned between 1 and 2 o’clock)

03
CALIBER RM 014 MARINE
Manual winding tourbillon movement with hours, minutes, power reserve indicator, torque indicator and function selector.

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.

04
CALIBER RM 014 MARINE
Manual winding tourbillon movement with hours, minutes, power reserve indicator, torque indicator and function selector.

CERAMIC ENDSTONE FOR THE TOURBILLON CAGE

This reflects a technical and long-term view towards the elimination of wear phenomena, resulting in improved technical tribology.

CARBON NANOFIBER MOVEMENT BASEPLATE

A composite material of carbon nanofibers that becomes an isotrope possessing mechanical, physical and chemical stability when molded under high pressure. This carbon composite structure is also amorphous, chemically neutral and dimensionally stable within a wide range of temperatures.

MODULAR TIME SETTING MECHANISM FITTED AGAINST THE CASE BACK

Provides the following advantages for longevity and maintenance: -Since the component is mounted outside of the movement, the time setting assembly can be changed without affecting the integrity of the bottom plate in the event of a possible defect or during maintenance; -The mounting and dismantling of this module from the back will not require the removal of the hands and the dial

FAST ROTATING BARREL (6 hours per revolution instead of 7,5 hours)

This type of barrel provides the following advantages:
 • The phenomenon of periodic internal mainspring adhesion is significantly diminished, thereby increasing performance. • Provision of an excellent mainspring delta curve with an ideal power reserve/performance
and regularity ratio.

Characteristics

VARIABLE INERTIA, FREE SPRUNG BALANCE
The free-sprung balance gives better reliability in the event of shocks, movement assembly and disassembly, and also guarantees better chronometric results over an extended period of time.

BARREL PAWL WITH PROGRESSIVE RECOIL
This device permits an appreciable winding gain (circa 20 %), especially during the start of winding. It also aids in the even distribution of the mainspring’s internal tension.

CLOSURE OF THE BARREL COVER WITH EXCENTRIC SCREWS
This development is part of a coherent and logical philosophy regarding longevity and the mechanical maintenance of ultra-high quality wristwatches and machines.
