SIHH Preview: Richard Mille RM 67-01 Automatic Extra Flat

Jason Pitsch

At SIHH 2016 next month, Richard Mille will launch a new watch styled after the brand’s original icon – the RM 010 – in a case that is only 7.75 mm thick. The RM 67-01 Automatic Extra Flat is sleeker and presumably more comfortable than the RM 010, without giving up the technical performance, robustness, or three-dimensional look that have become a signature of the brand. From Arabic numerals crafted of solid metal and mounted on two titanium rails, and attached directly to the movement – to the large, openwork winding barrel, rotor, going train and bridges – the designers have achieved the desired appearance of depth, all within a new movement measuring a mere 3.6 mm thick. Crafted from titanium, the tonneau-shaped case measures 38.7 mm x 47.52 mm x 7.75 mm and features brushed and satin finished surfaces.

Rafael Nadal's watch to be auctioned for Only Watch

Rafael Nadal’s Richard Mille RM 27-02, the very he is wearing this week at the US Open – which is similar to the RM 27-01 tourbillon watch he wore when he won the US Open in 2013 – will be auctioned off at Only Watch 2015 in November, for charity. The Rafael Nadal RM 27-02 tourbillon prototype features a “unibody” racecar-inspired case design that fuses the high-tech NTPT carbon skeletonized baseplate and case middle for increased shock-resistance. The rigidity is further enhanced by three-dimensional grade 5 titanium bridges. Ultimately, the tourbillon regulated timepiece can resist impacts of up to 5,000 G.

Introducing The Richard Mille RM 63-01 "Dizzy Hands"

The Richard Mille RM 63-01 features a novel complication that is designed to suspend time, so to speak. The “Dizzy Hands” function, which Richard Mille refers to as a “horological art complication,” allows the wearer, at the press of a button on the crown, to cause the sapphire hour disc to begin a counterclockwise rotation – at the same time, the hour hand continues in a clockwise direction, but at a different speed. The result, is a temporary suspension of time — and a break from reality. Press the crown pusher again, and the sapphire hour ring and hand return to their normal position.
