A watch has to possess vitality and be integrated within the natural stylistic development of a brand. A fixture of the Richard Mille collection since 2007, the RM 011 took its bows. Retiring at the height of its glory, it made way for the RM 11-03 Automatic Flyback Chronograph. Since the brand’s debut, Richard Mille watches have distilled performance in an unparalleled range of areas. To appreciate this, one need look no further than the RM 011. In terms of design, of materials used, of its details, its movement and its extraordinary adaptability, this piece embodies everything the brand stands for. The guiding principle for Richard Mille behind the RM 11-03 was to imbue the new automatic RMAC3 calibre with a 3D quality and to bring its complexity visually to the fore. Skeletonised, automatic winding movement with a variable-geometry rotor, offering hours, minutes, seconds, flyback chronograph, 60-minute countdown timer at 9 o’clock, 12-hour totaliser, oversize date and month indicator.
