Jean Todt is a very dear friend of Richard Mille who has been a brand devotee from the very beginning. This former rally co-driver and racing team director is currently President of the FIA (Fédération Internationale de l’Automobile), which represents 230 mobility and sport clubs in 130 countries around the world. Improving road safety is one of the major principles that guide his work. More and more nations are now achieving mass access to motorised transport. At Jean Todt’s request, each sale of this model is generating a royalty split between worthwhile programs in the interest of the Fédération Internationale de l’Automobile (FIA) and the ICM (Institut du Cerveau et de la Moelle épinière – Brain and Spine Institute), of which Jean Todt is Vice-President and a co-founder.
We chose to incorporate a “G” sensor in a watch’s mechanism. Drivers can use this device to assess how safely they are driving.
Depending on whether the hand of the sensor stops in a green or red zone, the watch enhances awareness of the dangers associated with failing to respect braking distances.
Limited edition of 15 pieces in titanium.
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 at 4 o’clock displays the selected function: W (Winding) – N (Neutral) – H (Hands).
DIAL In sapphire (thickness: 0.40 mm) with anti-glare treatment (both sides), protected by 8 silicon braces inserted in the upper and lower flanges grooves.
G INDICATOR This complex mechanism was designed to visually display the number of Gs accumulated by the watch’s wearer during rapid decelerations The scale located at 12 o’clock, whose needle indicates whether the deceleration is safe (green zone) or critical (red zone) for the driver. A push-piece at 9 o’clock quickly resets it to zero.
CALIBER RM036 Manual winding tourbillon movement with hours, minutes, small seconds at 6 o’clock, G sensor and function selector.
