The two most successful models of Richard Mille ladies’ watches, namely RM 07-01 and RM 037, have now adopted Gold Carbon TPT, a new type of combination of carbon and gold leaf Exclusive materials.
The RM 07-01 and the slightly larger RM 037 with extra-large date have been exhibited with carbon TPT, ceramic or gold cases.
Now, the latest interpretation of these models combines an extremely strong and lightweight composite material (carbon TPT) with precious metals that are unmatched in terms of attractiveness.
The creation of Gold Carbon TPT is particularly challenging and requires four years of development. It is not difficult to use this new material. In fact, it requires extensive expertise and absolute precision when designing a milling program and implementing a suitable cutting tool.
Carbon TPT consists of multiple layers of parallel filaments, which are obtained by dividing carbon fibers. These layers with a maximum thickness of 30 microns are impregnated with resin and then woven on a special machine that changes the direction of the weft between the two layers by 45°. For the gold-carbon TPT, the carbon layer and the gold sheet are arranged alternately.
The final surface is completely stunning, and the unique appearance of Carbon TPT reminds us of the gorgeous golden hue enriching the high-quality wood look. The mosaic pattern is displayed randomly during the manufacturing process, making each fashion cheap watch truly unique.
The barrel-shaped case of the RM 07-01 and RM 037 frame dials is paired with black sapphire and agate.
RM 07-01 is the smallest timepiece in the ladies’ watch series (45.66 mm x 31.40 mm x 11.85 mm). Its heartbeat is an internal CRMA2 movement, a 4 Hz (28,800 vibrations per hour) skeletonized automatic movement, a power reserve of 50 hours (±10%), and an 18-carat 5N red gold variable geometry rotor. In this way, the automatic winding can be adjusted to the wearer’s activity level.
The RM 037 is only slightly larger (52.63mm x 34.40mm x 13.00mm), revealing more details of its internal CRMA1 skeleton movement, including two skeleton calendar discs for displaying the extra-large date in the white area below 12 o. ‘clock. The beat frequency and autonomy are the same as the CRMA2 model that powers the RM 07-01.
The model also has a function selector. Using the 4 o’clock button, you can select the winding (W), neutral point (N) and manual setting (H) functions at the push of a button.
With this special gear system, the pressure exerted on the crown can be minimized, and it is impossible to cause any interference to the function of the crown. Because this method does not use the classic crown attachment that penetrates into the heart of the movement, it can protect the integrity of the movement and its mechanism from external influences.
