Richard Mille (Richard Mille) showed RM 036 to the world at SIHH last year. This is a 15-piece limited edition and is their first watch equipped with a G-force sensor. RM 36-01 is a new product of 2014 SIHH, reiterated the G sensor technology, and made some modifications to its structure and appearance specially designed for the rally car brand ambassador. Although the name “RM 36-01 Competition G-Sensor Sebastien Loeb” is not significant, it does a good job in describing some of the key features of this 47.70 mm lightweight monster. This is also the first watch of Leeb as ambassador of Richard Mille. Previously, he worked on Marvin watches and produced Loeb chronographs.
First, redesign the weirdest of all these products. Although its pointer reading at 12 o’clock still does not provide an accurate numerical indication of the degree of G-force that the wearer is bearing, it can now print up to 6 G in proportion to its ratio. To give you an idea, this is almost the largest car produced by Formula-1 in the fastest and most annoying corners. You really need some of the best and latest supercars on the market to achieve this goal. A more important update shows that the G sensor in the literal sense is not “face to face”. In order to make better changes, the reset button on the case at 9 o’clock was repositioned to the very center of the dial, protruding from the sapphire crystal.
If anything, it should probably make resetting easier and faster under harsh conditions, such as when fiddling with a wholesale watch to impress your passengers without crashing your supercar. Finally, the sensor is composed of more than 50 parts and has a diameter of 17mm. It can now be manually rotated by rotating the brown ceramic bezel to align with the direction of human movement. This allows specific and more accurate measurements of different movements (such as turning, acceleration and braking).
To get rid of and get rid of the madness of the sensor, the previous model’s 42.7mm barrel case (Richard Mille’s trademark) was replaced by a round three-part case, which had a more uniform size, a diameter of 47.7mm, and a thickness It is 17.37mm. . The middle part of the case uses “super anthracite polymer infused with carbon nanotubes”, while the fixed bezel and case back are made of grade 5 titanium.
Not surprisingly, the brand chose extremely durable and lightweight materials – as we have seen, most materials use this material. Its waterproof depth is up to 30 meters, which is probably related to the setting of the button in sapphire crystal glass. The dial is a 0.40 mm thick sapphire disc with anti-reflective coating on both sides.
Inside the movement is a manual winding tourbillon with a variety of unique turns. Like the previous generation, the one-minute tourbillon jumps at 3 Hz (or 21,600 vph), and-glimpses more traditional aspects of advanced timepieces-it has a balance wheel with weight screws on its rims to achieve The variable-torque inertia Richard Mille’s bottom plate became traditional, and the bottom plate was made of a special alloy of 90% grade 5 titanium, 6% aluminum and 4% vanadium, making it extremely strong and durable Corrosive, resistant to racing, driving or sitting in a collector’s safe.
According to the brand, these components have been “completely verified” to optimize their resistance capacity. A more obvious function is the function selector, as shown on the dial between the 3 and 4 o’clock positions. Pushed by a button located in the center of the crown, the wearer can switch between winding (W), neutral (N) and pointer setting (H) functions by pressing the button. In addition, the time setting mechanism has been installed as a separate module on the back cover of the chassis. Since there is no need to disassemble the sensor and other parts of the movement, the maintenance and disassembly of this component are easier.
The original RM 036 was dedicated to Jean Todt and his road safety initiative (because sensors should warn drivers when they reach an “unsafe” amount of G), but this time the collaboration around the brand has made it more active The nature of this may be more exciting for racing fans. They collaborated with French rally driver Sebastien Loeb. Leeb is the most successful driver in the history of the World Rally Championship (WRC) and has won the championship nine times in a row. In fact, he is one of the fastest and most stable drivers ever. Just search his name and Pikes Peak on YouTube and you will understand what I mean. Although the chances of someone using such a weird musical instrument under competition conditions are negligible, Loeb is still one of the few people who can actually test.
For those who are familiar with what Richard Mille does, although unwilling to provide truly useful complex features, this 2014 novelty is not surprising, it has some unique ( (Maybe over-designed) functions, these functions show that the watch industry can achieve miniaturization, durability and not only break the boundaries of not only what can be manufactured, but also what can be sold.
