The creation of a rectangular shape while conserving the brand’s distinguishing hallmarks is a difficult exercise. Up to now, the height of the mechanical architecture had been a starting point. For this model, Richard Mille concentrated on the opposite constraint: the watch was to be as flat as possible. The mechanism had to be spatially extended, spread out along the horizontal plane, to create a different sensual relationship with the wrist. This determinedly technological watch is also a very refined, ascetic accessory to a particular art of living.
Rotor with variable geometry. By adjusting the setting of the rib’s placement, the rotor’s inertia is modified to either speed up the winding process in the case of leisurely arm movements, or slow it down when sporting activities are pursued. As a result, this invention allows the movement’s winding mechanism to be optimized and personalized to the owner’s lifestyle.
