You’ve positively seen immediately that Richard Mille most recent creation is red. Obviously… (Except in the event that you are partially blind, and we’re significantly upset for you). Be that as it may, your eyes have probably spotted something else; the juxtaposition of the words “Quart” and “Automatic“. Stand by, is that at all possible? Is RM going to bring down that numerous their watches and to have quartz developments? We realize the market to be very troublesome nowadays, however come on! Alright, that was only a dread, as the new Richard Mille RM 011 Red TPT Quartz Automatic Flyback Chronograph is a valid (and very bold) Haute Horlogerie piece, with a genuine mechanical development however with a case blending carbon fiber and layers of red quartz (the material, not the watch innovation). Explanations.
As we generally will in general say, a touch of humor won’t ever stung. Nonetheless, the watch being referred to here and the material used to make its case are far, a long way from being a joke. It’s even a significant genuine arrangement of innovation to make the case of the Richard Mille RM 011 Red TPT Quartz. To comprehend a smidgen more, we need to return a couple of months sooner with another watch presented by Richard Mille, the sort of crazy RM 27-02 Tourbillon Rafael Nadal . This watch was the first to utilize the TPT Quartz innovation, a blend of materials bringing about a case with a bizarre high contrast slope and different layers. Initially developed to manufacture dashing boat cruises, this material discovers applications in Formula 1 frame development, aeronautics…and now watchmaking. After a non-colored form of this material on Nadal’s watch , Richard Mille is presently ready to apply colored pitches to bring a significantly bolder design.
This special dark and red appearance comes from a layer development (more than 600 layers altogether), rotating quartz and carbon fibers. Richard Mille’s architects have built up a profoundly unique material known as TPT quartz, composed of hundreds of layers of quartz fibers heaped on top of one another. Silica layers are embedded between layers of NTPT carbon ( you can peruse more about this material here ) with a situating framework that changes the direction of the filaments between each layer by 45 degrees. Machining will at that point uncover the haphazardly positioned layers, making a special search for each watch. After a first take a stab at the RM 27-02 Tourbillon , Richard Mille presently adds an exceptional red pitch to the TPT Quartz, uncovering a two-tone case, where the dark filaments of carbon substitute with the splendid red layers of TPT Quartz.
For the rest, the Richard Mille RM 011 Red TPT Quartz remains in fact a RM 011, implying that it includes an automatic flyback chronograph with oversized date (utilizing two isolated circles), a month show at 4 o’clock, a influence hold of 55 hours delivered by a twofold barrel framework twisted by a variable-calculation rotor, plates and extensions machined from grade 5 titanium (obvious from the skeletonized dial) and the typical flyback chronograph with a commencement work. The case stays dedicated to the Richard Mille custom, with a tonneau shape and the 12 titanium spleen screws (you can peruse more about the Richard Mille RM 011 here and here ). To complete the look, the red RM 011 comes on a coordinating red elastic tie (that you can generally trade later with a dark one if there’s a lot of red for you).
The Richard Mille RM 011 Red TPT Quartz will be a restricted version of 50 pieces, just accessible at the Richard Mille shops. No words on the valuing yet expect a cost more than 200,000 Euros.
