TRIPARTITE COMPLEX CASE

Combining tonneau, rectangular and asymmetrical lines. Crafted of Carbon TPT®, a high-tech composite material that cannot be dissociated, in the world of watchmaking, from the Richard Mille brand. Practically indestructible and possessed of extraordinary physical properties, Carbon TPT® makes it possible to lighten the case without jeopardising shock resistance—perfect for cycling.

MECHANICAL MILEAGE COUNTER

Taking inspiration from speedometer-equipped shift levers, the mechanical mileage odometer is a new horological complication that can record distances of up to 99,999 kilometres.

MECHANISM

One pusher, located at 2 o’clock, controls a gear selector fork that can engage any of the 5 rollers or activate the neutral position. Pressing the second pusher, located at 11 o’clock, rotates the selected roller.

MECHANISM

This complex mechanism occupies most of the available volume; the extremely compact calibre was made possible by another horological tour de force: aligning the tourbillon and barrel on the same axis.

TORQUE LIMITED CROWN

This added security system prevents accidental overwinding of the watch, the result of which can cause possible damage to the winding stem or the application of extreme pressure on the barrel spring.
