The circle is omnipresent in mechanisms, where everything is in perpetual rotation: gear trains, wheels, pinions, rotors, etc. Focused on this fundamental to delimit the volume of everything and define the shape of the container, liberated from the constraints relating to safety and resistance to extreme conditions linked to the diver’s watch, Richard Mille imagined this chic sports model using the beautiful, subdued aesthetic grammar of the circle.
Its ergonomic elegance is based on the finesse of the curved case that espouses the wrist, while the bezel is strictly horizontal, parallel to the skeletonised baseplate. As its movement is just 2.60 mm thick, we were able to limit the depth of the case to 6.30 mm. Available in titanium, 18k white gold or red gold.
CROWN In ceramic, with double seal O-ring and detailing in titanium, 18k red or white gold.
POWER RESERVE Circa 42 hours.
BOTTOM PLATE, BRIDGES AND BALANCE COCK MADE OF TITANIUM The manufacturing of these components in grade 5 titanium - bottom plate with Titalyt® coating and bridges with PVD coating, allows the whole assembly to be given great rigidity, as well as precise surface flatness that is essential for the perfect functioning of the gear train. The skeletonized baseplate and the bridges were subjected to separate and extensive validation tests to insure optimal strength requirements.
CALIBER RMXP1 Skeletonized automatic winding movement with hours, minutes and off-center monoblock platinum rotor.
