AN EXCEPTIONAL CAREER PATH

Jean Todt and Richard Mille have forged a strong friendship based on their shared passions: watchmaking, extreme technicity and all things automotive. «I love the watches designed by Richard. I love their lightness, their technicity and their exclusivity,» shares Jean Todt. The two men agree to acknowledge one another equally obsessive, detail-oriented and demanding in their respective fields, as is clearly illustrated by the special series.

Main characteristics

Presented at Chantilly Arts & Elégance 2016, the RM 11-03 Flyback Chronograph is a resolutely sporty watch, wholly inspired by automobiles and their history while displaying the new visual codes of the brand. It is powered by an architectural automatic calibre in grade 5 Titanium.
Limited Edition of 150 pieces.

01
RMAC3 CALIBRE
Skeletonised, automatic winding movement.
Flyback Chronograph.

OVERSIZE DATE DISPLAY Semi-instantaneous, placed in a red outlined horizontal aperture under 12 o’clock with automatic adjustment for months of 30 or 31 days.

02
RMAC3 CALIBRE
Skeletonised, automatic winding movement.
Flyback Chronograph.

MONTH DISPLAY Semi-instantaneous, indicated by Arabic numerals placed between 4 and 5 o’clock.

03
RMAC3 CALIBRE
Skeletonised, automatic winding movement.
Flyback Chronograph.

DOUBLE BARREL SYSTEM The double barrel system contributes to torque stability over a longer period. This is achieved by using higher rotations of the barrel, thereby reducing pressure and wear on the teeth, bearings and pivots, improving long-term performance.

CASE

In white and blue Quartz TPT. Extremely resistant and light, this composite is obtained by stacking 600 layers of silica only 45 microns thick, which are then impregnated with an exclusive Richard Mille blue resin. The assembly is then heated to 120 °C before being machined in our factory.

BASEPLATE AND BRIDGES

Crafted of grade 5 titanium, a biocompatible, highly corrosion-resistant and remarkably rigid alloy, which enables the gear train to function effortlessly. The alloy is 90% grade 5 Titanium, 6% Aluminium and 4% Vanadium.

MOVEMENT FINISHING

- Baseplate and bridges in titanium, wet sandblasted, PVD treated - Chamfered and polished by hand - Hand-polished locking sections - Burnished pivots - Diamond-polished sinks - Pinions with undercuts - Bevelled wheels, sandblasted and rhodium-plated

FREE SPRUNG BALANCE WITH VARIABLE INERTIA
This type of balance wheel represents the ultimate in innovation. It guarantees greater reliability when subjected
to shocks and also during movement assembly and disassembly, hence better chronometric results over time.
The regulator index is eliminated and a more accurate and repeatable calibration is possible thanks to 4 small
adjustable weights located directly on the balance.

VARIABLE-GEOMETRY ROTOR
- Central flange in grade 5 titanium
- 18K white gold weight segment
- Weight segment with 6 possible positions adjusted by screws in grade 5 titanium
- 18K white Gold wings
- Ceramic ball bearings
- Unidirectional anti-clockwise winding

SPLINE SCREWS IN GRADE 5 TITANIUM FOR THE MOVEMENT
This permits better control of the torque applied to the screws during assembly. These screws are unaffected by physical manipulation during assembly or disassembly and age well.

POWER RESERVE
Circa 55 hours (±10%).
Actual power reserve results will depend on how much the chronograph features are utilised.

FLANGES
In carbon fibre filled with an approved luminescent material.
