Super function collection tasting Richard Mille RM 011 Black Kite flyback chronograph
After the RM 011 Red Kite Flyback Chronograph Limited Edition, Richard Mille is now launching its similar Black Kite. The Black Kite is made of matte black DLC titanium, like a bird hidden in the night, mysterious and sharp. Of course, in addition to the exquisite appearance, this watch is not inferior in terms of function and convenience. The official number of the watch is: RM 011 Flyback Chronograp.
Friends who are familiar with Richard Mille may be no strangers to such exaggerated appearance. This time this flyback chronograph also uses an extremely exaggerated design to demonstrate its unique sports style.
In addition to the flyback timer function, the watch also provides 60-minute countdown, date display, and month display functions. In the next article, I will introduce this watch in detail.
Richard Mille RM 011 Black Kite Flyback Chronograph-Appearance
The watch case is made of 50×40 mm titanium alloy and has a thickness of 16.15 mm. In addition to the flyback timing function, it is also equipped with a date display function. The strap is a black rubber strap and a black buckle. The whole is mainly black. Red and yellow are used as embellishments in the design of the watch, making the overall more A rough man’s style.
From an intuitive sense, the hollow dial is the biggest highlight of this watch. It is reported that the automatic dial device this time is fake Richard Mille’s exclusive design. Its feature is that the mainspring can effectively adjust the winding function according to the wearer’s intense level of exercise. By adjusting the position, the inertial movement of the automatic disc can be changed. Make the operation reach the best condition.
The crown and the buttons for controlling the timing are the positions of the conventional chronograph. In addition to the strong sense of texture design, the crown is made of five-grade micro-sandblasted titanium alloy, equipped with double O-rings and Alcryn gaskets. The timing button is also marked with a prominent red font to identify the function, which is convenient for the wearer to operate and use.
The back of the watch is designed with sapphire crystal, and the watch is equipped with a black rubber strap. Although it lacks novelty from the overall point of view, it also explains the conventional ways of sports watches.
The watch has a semi-instant horizontal date red frame display window at 12 o’clock. Because the entire dial is mainly black, the red is particularly prominent in it, which is clear and easy to read.
Between four o’clock and five o’clock, there is a month display window with Arabic numerals. Although the design of this place is not very obvious in the overall vision, it also increases its practical function.
This countdown dial can be seen from the scale at the nine o’clock position of the watch. This is also one of the powerful functions of this watch. It provides a 60-minute countdown, made of carbon fiber, and the scale is treated with British fluorescent.
I believe that the biggest highlight of this watch is its flyback timing function. There is no need to stop the chronograph timing in advance. Press the button between four o’clock and five o’clock to directly redesign the chronograph. It is reported that this function is in the design. At the beginning, it was specially formulated for pilots, simplifying the tedious operation process in order to save time.
Richard Mille RM 011 Black Kite Flyback Chronograph-Movement
The watch is equipped with the RM 011-S self-winding movement. The bottom plate, the bridge and the balance bridge are all made of titanium alloy, which can improve its overall solidity and surface smoothness, which is very important for the good operation of the gear train. of. The movement size is 30.30×32.75 mm, the vibration frequency is 28,800 vibrations per hour, and the power reserve is 50 hours.
Personally, it’s actually too sporty. I always think it should be the second watch after a man owns a formal watch. On the one hand, it is the limitation of wearing occasions. On the other hand, it is more difficult for ordinary buyers. In the high price range, other first-tier brands may become Richard Mille’s competitors.
