Richard Mille

RM 50-02 ACJ Tour­bil­lon Split Sec­onds Chronograph

ZbBZ (Singapore) - - 好时光 WATCH OUT -

Air­bus is a world leader in aero­nau­ti­cal de­sign, in par­tic­u­lar those air­craft cre­ated for per­sonal clients by its ul­tra-lux­ury sub­sidiary, Air­bus Cor­po­rate Jets (ACJ). ACJ’s col­lab­o­ra­tion with Richard Mille re­flects their syn­er­getic ap­proach to ground-break­ing tech­no­log­i­cal de­sign in the cre­ation of the RM 50-02 ACJ Tour­bil­lon Split Sec­onds Chronograph. It makes use of ad­vanced, open worked de­sign el­e­ments in the in­ter­nal de­sign of bridges and base­plate in grade 5 titanium, along with an ex­ten­sive ap­pli­ca­tion of skele­ton­i­sa­tion to ev­ery pos­si­ble area, of­fer­ing sig­nif­i­cant weight re­duc­tion. This is the first time the iconic Richard Mille screws around the outer edge of the bezel have been re­placed by Torq set screws en­graved with the wave-pat­terned Air­bus logo. The tour­bil­lon comes in a lim­ited edi­tion of 30 pieces.

Richard Mille has cre­ated sev­eral mod­els within a short time span that have be­come recog­nised by col­lec­tors as icons of con­tem­po­rary watch­mak­ing. Now, it has added yet an­other model to that list: the RM 67-01 Au­to­matic Ex­tra Flat. The au­to­matic move­ment CRMA6 cre­ated for it in-house is a new cal­i­bre of only 3.6mm thick­ness. At the heart of the move­ment’s struc­tural de­sign is the use of in­vo­lute pro­files for the en­tire go­ing train, in­stead of the stan­dard cy­cloidal-shaped teeth. Such pro­files can be found in trans­mis­sions of cars and highly ef­fi­cient mo­tors, and al­low for su­pe­rior chrono­met­ric re­sults. The case, cre­ated in an ex­tra flat form, makes it the sleek­est among Richard Mille’s ton­neau-shaped watches.
