ASIA LTD EDITION

The RM 017 embodied the challenge to reconcile the extra flat with the complex mechanism of a tourbillon. The paradox was similar to trying to construct a Formula 1 racing car from a luxury saloon automobile. A perfect harmony between excellence/mechanical performance and ergonomics.

Main characteristics

This model enables the unobstructed contemplation of a technical spectacle to a clear field of vision.
To enhance the timepiece’s visual beauty, extremely slender bridges were used to highlight its architecture and mechanical structure, clearly visible through the case back.
Rectangular case in ATZ White Ceramic.
Limited Edition available exclusively in Asia.

01
CALIBER RM 017
Manual winding, extra flat tourbillon movement with hours, minutes, power reserve and function indicator.

FUNCTION INDICATOR In a manner similar to a car's gearbox, the function indicator allows one to see the winding, neutral and hand setting positions as the crown is pulled out. Each position is indicated via a hand at 4 o’clock displaying the functions: W (Winding) – N (Neutral) – H (Hands).

02
CALIBER RM 017
Manual winding, extra flat tourbillon movement with hours, minutes, power reserve and function indicator.

POWER RESERVE Circa 70 hours, located on a scale at 2 o’clock.

03
CALIBER RM 017
Manual winding, extra flat tourbillon movement with hours, minutes, power reserve and function indicator.

TORQUE LIMITING CROWN This additional security system prevents from accidental overwinding, which could cause damage such as the winding stem breaking or too much pressure on the barrel spring.

04
CALIBER RM 017
Manual winding, extra flat tourbillon movement with hours, minutes, power reserve and function indicator.

CASE

The case represents an uncompromising approach, with extensive attention to all details of the design with numerous stamping and machining operations required for the three main components (front bezel, back bezel and caseband). It is assembled with 12 spline screws in grade 5 titanium and abrasion resistant washers in 316L stainless steel.

TITANIUM BASEPLATE

Tourbillon diameter: 12.30 mm These components are manufactured in grade 5 titanium and treated with a black PVD coating. As a consequence the whole assembly is extremely rigid, with precise surface flatness, an essential for the perfect functioning of the geartrain.

VARIABLE INERTIA, FREE SPRUNG BALANCE

Provides better reliability in the event of shocks, movement assembly and disassembly. It also guarantees better chronometric results over an extended period of time.

Characteristics

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.

SPLINE SCREWS IN GRADE 5 TITANIUM FOR THE BRIDGES
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.

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

WINDING BARREL TEETH AND THIRD-WHEEL PINION WITH CENTRAL INVOLUTE PROFILE
The central involute profile of the winding barrel teeth and pinion provides an optimal pressure angle of 20°. This promotes effective rotary motion and allows for compensation of possible variations in the engagement of the going train, thus insuring excellent torque transmission with a distinct improvement in performance.
