A FURTHER DEVELOPMENT OF THE MECHANICAL G-FORCE SENSOR

The new RM 36-01 G-Sensor Tourbillon Sébastien Loeb is the result of the collaboration between Richard Mille and Sébastien Loeb, the most successful driver in WRC history, having won the world rally championship a record nine times in a row and set the new world record on the Pikes Peak Hill Climb in 2013.

Main characteristics

The key to understanding this new creation can be gleaned from the rotating brown ceramic bezel: the G-force sensor can now be rotated manually to align in different directions, enabling drivers to view the lateral deceleration as well as longitudinal forces found respectively in corners, acceleration and braking on straights.
Directly connected to the bezel and sapphire glass, the sensor can indicate G-forces of up to 6 G’s.
Created in a limited edition of 30 pieces, Sébastien Loeb wears this exceptional timepiece during WTCC competitions and on all other motorsport events in which he will participate.

Manual winding tourbillon movement with hours, minutes, rotary G-sensor, power reserve indicator and function selector.

FUNCTION INDICATOR In a manner similar to a car’s gearbox, the function indicator allows one to see the winding, neutral and handsetting 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 (Handsetting).

BASEPLATE AND BRIDGES IN GRADE 5 TITANIUM The baseplate has been 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 % grade 5 titanium, 6% aluminum and 4 % vanadium.

ROTARY G-SENSOR Composed of over 50 parts and measuring a mere 17mm, the rotary G-sensor is designed to visually display the number of G’s accumulated by the driver during the different phases of driving such as rapid acceleration, deceleration and lateral forces. The direction of the G-force to be recorded is set by rotating the bezel. A needle on the scale indicates whether the number of Gs accumulated is mild (green zone) or critical (red zone). A push-piece set at the center of the sapphire glass quickly resets it to zero.

CASE RM36-01

The three-part case of the RM 36-01 is composed of extremely advanced materials: - Rotating bezel inTZP-Z brown ceramic made of aluminum oxide powder tubes injected at a pressure of almost 2,000bar. 
It is noted for being a particularly scratch-resistant material (1,400 Vickers), possessing a stable color. Brown ceramic 
requires a long and difficult machining and grinding process using special diamond tools. - Caseband: made from an extremely strong anthracite polymer injected with carbon nanotubes. This combination 
produces a material that provides perfect protection for the movement and the tourbillon. - Caseback and fixed bezel: in grade 5 titanium, a biocompatible, highly corrosion-resistant and remarkably rigid alloy. 
It is composed of 90% titanium, 6% aluminum and 4% vanadium, a combination that further enhances the mechanical properties of the material. 
The design and execution of the watch demonstrates a complete conceptual approach to the movement, case and dial. As a result, everything has been constructed according to an extremely rigorous specifications, in the manner of the analytical engineering methods used in the design of Formula 1 racing cars where the chassis and the engine are developed in complete harmony. 
The three-part case is water resistant to 30 meters ensured by two Nitril O-ring seals. The case is assembled with 20 spline screws in grade 5 titanium and abrasion resistant washers in 316L stainless steel.
