Richard Mille Watches is the official partner the Lotus F1 Team since 2013, and this fruitful collaboration on F1 tracks around the globe has given birth to the first tourbillon watch dedicated to the team and especially one of the Lotus F1 Team drivers, Romain Grosjean for whom Richard Mille created this new tourbillon driven timepiece.
Limited edition of 30 watches, caseband in NTPT® carbon or red gold.
Each accompanied by hand assembled 1/5th scale model of the 2014 Lotus F1 racing car.
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).
TORQUE LIMITING CROWN This added security system prevents accidental overwinding of the watch, the result of which can cause damage such as breaking the winding stem or putting too much pressure on the barrel spring.
G-FORCE INDICATOR This mechanism was designed to visually display the number of the G’s accumulated by the watch’s wearer during rapid deceleration. The hand and scale located below 12 o’clock indicate whether the deceleration is mild (green zone) or critical (red zone) for the driver.
CALIBER RM 50-01 Manual winding tourbillon movement with G-sensor, Hours, Minutes and Chronograph with central seconds and 30 minute counter at 9 o’clock.
