Richard Mille’s pursuit of innovation has not slowed down. This can be noted in advanced mechanical engineering solutions and new production methods, as well as when using unconventional and often unprecedented materials. The latest is gray cermet. Richard Mille’s first watch combines the lightness of titanium with the hardness of diamonds and is used on the front bezel of the new RM 11-05 automatic anti-flight chronograph GMT.
The physical properties of cermets are widely recognized, so they are often used in ballistic protection and aerospace for re-entry space shuttle components, external fuselage components, and brakes for racing vehicles. The hardness of cermet is 2360 Vickers hardness, which is comparable to other high ceramics and is very suitable for use in bezels that are easily scratched.
The iconic case of the RM 11-05 measures 50 mm x 42.70 mm and has a total thickness of 16.15 mm. It also comes with a carbon fiber TPT strap and a grade 5 titanium case back (you can read about these materials and other high-tech materials More information) Used here by Richard Mille).
The combination of these three high-tech materials greatly reduces the weight of the RM 11-05. With two Nitrile O-rings, the entire housing structure is waterproof to 50 meters/165 feet, and is assembled in grade 5 titanium alloy and 316L stainless steel washers using 20 spline screws.
Functions include: hours, minutes, seconds at 3 o’clock, annual calendar with month and oversized date, 24-hour flyback chronograph with minutes and countdown counter (at 9 o’clock), hour counter at 6 o’clock, GMT Features. copy watches
The date display with an overly large date is located in the red outline horizontal aperture below 12 o’clock and can be automatically adjusted for 30 or 31 days. The month display in Arabic numerals is between 4 o’clock and 5 o’clock.
Thanks to the flyback function, the chronograph can be stopped without using a button between 4 and 5 o’clock, without resetting the timing device.
When the chronograph function is activated, there are counters at 6 o’clock and 9 o’clock, so the hours and minutes display the elapsed time, and the second hand is indicated by the central hand. At 9 o’clock, a disc with a hollow 60-minute mark replaced the hands. In this way, the user can read the elapsed minutes and the remaining minutes to count down.
Regarding the Greenwich Mean Time function, RM 11-05 uses orange hands to fill Super-LumiNova. It can be easily adjusted using the 9 o’clock button.
The frame and bridge of the self-winding movement RMAC3 are made of grade 5 titanium, which is a highly corrosion-resistant rigid alloy that allows the gear train to work easily. The alloy is 90% grade 5 titanium, 6% aluminum and 4% vanadium. This special combination further improves the mechanical properties of the material. This explains its frequent use in the aerospace, aviation and automotive industries.
Beating at a frequency of 4 Hz (28,800 vph), the freely suspended balance wheel with variable inertia guarantees higher reliability when subjected to shocks and during the assembly and disassembly of the movement. Therefore, as time goes by , The timing effect will be better.
With the help of 4 small adjustable weights directly on the balance, the regulator graduation is eliminated, and more accurate and repeatable adjustments can be made.
The rotor with variable geometry allows the rewinding of the mainspring to be most effectively adapted to the user’s activity level. By adjusting the setting of the rib position, the rotor’s inertia will be adjusted according to the wearer’s lifestyle to speed up or slow down the winding process. The rotor is made of titanium and weighs 18K white gold. The double barrel system ensures a power reserve of 50 hours. Shopping copy watch
