The new Richard Mille partner Mutaz Essa Barshim "Mr. High Jump". An Olympic medallist twice over, the native of Doha has turned in the four best performances worldwide in the last five years, proving he has everything it takes to become this discipline’s new record holder, twenty-four years after Javier Sotomayor.
The desire to create a watch that was so uniquely adapted it was practically a second skin for the athlete, permitting a sort of ‘symbiosis’ with the athlete was the guiding ambition that propelled this new development.
FAST-ROTATING BARREL (5 hours per revolution instead of 7.5 hours) The phenomenon of periodic internal mainspring adhesion is significantly diminished, thereby increasing performance
SPLINE SCREWS IN GRADE 5 TITANIUM FOR THE BRIDGES This permits better control of the torque applied to the screws during assembly.
FREE-SPRUNG BALANCE WITH VARIABLE INERTIA This mechanism guarantees greater reliability when subjected to shock, and during movement assembly or disassembly, hence better chronometric results over time.
CALIBRE CRMA7 Automatic skeletonised winding movement with hours and minutes.
FREE SPRUNG BALANCE WITH VARIABLE INERTIA This mechanism guarantees greater reliability when subjected to shock, and during movement assembly or disassembly, hence better chronometric results over time. The regulator index is eliminated, and a more accurate and repeatable adjustment is possible, thanks to 4 small adjustable weights located directly on the balance. POWER RESERVE Circa 50 hours (±10%).
