This split seconds chronograph, another new caliber for the brand, unites all the experience acquired in the fields of reliability, accuracy since the brand’s inception. In this ultimate split seconds chronograph, having successfully managed to make the optimised performance of every function completely reliable and repeatable under all conditions. Our storehouse of on-the-ground experience gained with our sporting partners under extreme conditions was exceedingly useful in the development of this creation. Limited edition of 10 pieces in carbon nanotubes.
The RMCC1 movement is inspired by the tourbillon caliber with split-seconds chronograph from the RM 008. Released in 2004, this caliber has established itself as one of the most complex in the world thanks to its tourbillon movement operating a split-seconds chronograph.
TORQUE INDICATOR Supplies information about the mainspring’s tension, thus permitting the optimalization of the chronometric functioning of the movement. Below 53 dNmm, the spring is considered to be too slack, while above 65 dNmm, the excessive spring tension can adversely affect the mechanism’s operation, or else actually endanger it. (These indications appear on the numerical zone to the right of the barrel).
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 following functions: W (Winding) – N (Neutral) – H (Hands).
SKELETONIZED TITANIUM BASEPLATE Finished in grade 5 titanium, a biocompatible, highly corrosion-resistant and remarkably rigid alloy, which enables the gear train to function effortlessly. The alloy is 90% titanium, 6% aluminium and 4% vanadium. This combination further increases its mechanical properties, which explains its frequent use in the aerospace, aeronautical and automobile industries. The baseplate of the calibre RMCC1 has been optimised to achieve an extreme weight/resistance ratio.
CALIBER RMCC1 Manual winding tourbillon movement with hours, minutes, split-seconds chronograph and power reserve, torque and function indicators.
