Watch manufacturer Richard Mille is launching a new flyback chronograph. The Richard Mille RM 72-01 replaced the previously discontinued RM 11, powered by the manufacturer’s first internal chronograph movement. The new model retains the brand’s design aesthetics and, as always, incorporates a number of technological innovations.
In the case, the Richard Mille RM 72-01 adopted a recognizable case, the shape is typical of the brand. Its length is 47.34 mm, width is 38.40 mm, and height is 11.68 mm. In addition, the case is available in grade 5 titanium, 5N rose gold, black or white ceramics. All versions of the crown are made of rose gold and ceramic, and covered with a rubber ring. In addition, the sapphire crystal glass protects the front, and the mechanism can be clearly seen through the back cover. fake luxury watches
The dial is made of titanium, allowing a glimpse of the movement below. Only three Arabic numerals can be seen: 3, 8, and 11. However, the small wedge-shaped hour markers are coated with luminous material. The three small dials are not located at 3, 6 and 9 o’clock as people think, but at 1, 5 and 9 o’clock alternately. The smallest dial at 9 o’clock shows the small seconds of the main time. There is also a vertical date window at 7 o’clock.
In addition, the movement visually indicates the position of the crown on the dial. Like the gear lever of a car, the arrow at the 3 o’clock position points to one of the three positions. W stands for “Winding”, D stands for date, H stands for “Hand Setting”-time setting.
Inside the new Richard Mille RM 72-01 is the CRMC1 movement. This is the manufacturer’s first fully self-produced chronograph movement. The splints and splints are made of titanium, while the winding rotor is made of platinum. The balance with hairspring oscillates at a frequency of 4 Hz. The power reserve of this movement is approximately 50 hours.
Richard Mille RM 72-01’s patented chronograph is equipped with a dual-level clutch and a “swing pinion”. These allow the sub-dial counter to be driven directly by the main barrel, instead of being driven by the fourth wheel as usual. Therefore, the use of the chronograph has no effect on the main time and power reserve. The mechanism also provides a flyback function, which means that the reset function can be used without first stopping the timing.
The Richard Mille RM 72-01 is 30 meters water resistant and comes with a white or black rubber strap with folding clasp.
