THE ULTIMATE TRAVELLER’S WATCH

As part of his worldwide campaign to promote cars and road safety, Jean Todt, President of the FIA (Fédération Internationale de l’Automobile), has travelled to over 130 different countries since his election in 2009. This adventure inspired the concept behind this model. At Jean Todt’s request, each sale of this model will generate 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.

Main characteristics

The watch provides a direct display of the exact local time in the major cities of the world, making it simple to manage your universal diary.
Limited edition of 35 pieces.

01
TORQUE LIMITING CROWN
This additional security system prevents from accidental overwinding, which could cause damage to the winding stem or putting extreme pressure on the mainspring barrel.

CALIBER RM58-01 Manual winding tourbillon movement with hours, minutes, power reserve indicator universal 24-hour time display, tourbillon at 9 o’clock.

02
TORQUE LIMITING CROWN
This additional security system prevents from accidental overwinding, which could cause damage to the winding stem or putting extreme pressure on the mainspring barrel.

POWER RESERVE Circa 10 days (±10%). The power reserve is provided by two barrels fitted consecutively and is indicated on a 2-hour numerical scale.

03
TORQUE LIMITING CROWN
This additional security system prevents from accidental overwinding, which could cause damage to the winding stem or putting extreme pressure on the mainspring barrel.

MULTIPLE TIME ZONE ADJUSTMENT MECHANISM The RM 58-01 features an innovative mechanism for adjusting the time zone. The rotating bezel includes a specific wheel connected to the movement that acts directly on the hours wheel. Turning the bezel anti clockwise ensures quicker, more accurate time-setting. The lower disc, divided into 24 hours, shows the time in other cities and indicates whether it is day (white part) or night (black part).

TORQUE LIMITING CROWN
This additional security system prevents from accidental overwinding, which could cause damage to the winding stem or putting extreme pressure on the mainspring barrel.

BARREL PAWL WITH PROGRESSIVE RECOIL

This device permits an appreciable winding gain (circa 20 %), especially during the start of winding. It also aids in the even distribution of the mainspring’s internal tension.

CASE

Producing the RM 58-01 case is an extremely complex task, as almost 200 parts are required to create it. The design and creation of the watch are both fruits of an overall conceptual approach applied to the case, dial and individual movement parts. Its four-part construction includes the unidirectional rotating bevel that, in addition to being used to adjust the watch, plays a role in keeping the timepiece water-resistant. The case mechanism is completed by horns and screws to securely fix the strap. The fixed bezel and the case back are made from 5N 18K red gold, both polished and satin-brushed. The case middle is made from grade 5 titanium with a vertical satin-brushing, while the rotating bezel is in shot-blasted and polished titanium. The lugs in 5N 18K red gold have vertical and horizontal satin-brushing and polished bevels. The crown-protector is made from satin-brushed grade 5 titanium, which is combined with 5N 18K shot-blasted red gold. The case is assembled with 20 spline screws in grade 5 titanium and is water-resistant to 30 meters, ensured by two Nitril O-ring seals.

FREE SPRUNG BALANCE WITH VARIABLE INERTIA

A free sprung balance with variable inertia and a terminal-curve spring (originally designed for pocket watches) guarantees greater reliability in case of impacts and during movement assembly and disassembly, thus achieving better chronometric results over time.

SPLINE SCREWS IN GRADE 5 TITANIUM RM58-01

This permits better control of the torque applied to the screws during assembly. These screws are therefore unaffected by physical manipulation during assembly or disassembly and age well.

Characteristics

IMPROVED TIME-SETTING SYSTEM
By replacing engaging friction by rolling friction, the time-setting function is smoother.
