Skeletonised automatic-winding movement with hours, minutes and off-centre monoblock platinum rotor. Power reseve: Circa 45 hours (±10%). Frequency: 21,600 vph (3 Hz)
The design and execution of the watch demonstrate a holistic approach to conception of the movement, case and dial.
As a result, everything has been constructed according to extremely rigorous specifications.
The front and back bezels are made of Carbon TPT®, a remarkable material with a unique finish obtained by layering
hundreds of sheets of carbon fibres using an automated process that changes the orientation of the weft between layers.
Heated to 120 °C in an autoclave similar to those used for aero- nautic components, the material is then ready to be
machined at Richard Mille. During this phase, the many layers of Carbon TPT® are revealed, creating random patterns
that make each piece unique. The caseband is in 5N red gold.
The tripartite case is assembled with 14 spline screws in grade 5 titanium and abrasion-resistant washers in 316L
stainless steel, further complemented by integration of the lugs into the case’s torque screw system. The tripartite
case is water resistant to 30 metres, ensured by 2 Nitrile O-ring seals.
