RICHARD MILLE RM 67-01 AU­TO­MATIC EX­TRA FLAT

They say great things comes in small pack­ages and this is cer­tainly true with the RM 67-01 Au­to­matic Ex­tra Flat, which com­bines a ton­neau-shaped case with an ex­tra-flat form. It’s also an im­pres­sive tech­ni­cal achieve­ment, as each case is the prod­uct of more than 215 sep­a­rate ma­chin­ing op­er­a­tions. Sev­eral ad­di­tional work hours are thus re­quired com­pared with the case con­struc­tion of other watches in the Richard Mille col­lec­tion. Only 7.75mm high, this sleek watch is pow­ered by a skele­tonised au­to­matic move­ment just 3.6mm thick. It dis­plays hours, minutes and the date and has a func­tion in­di­ca­tor with a 50-hour power re­serve. The back of the move­ment re­veals a high de­gree of skele­ton­i­sa­tion that’s vis­i­ble on the bar­rel, the ro­tor, the gear train and the bridges of the au­to­matic-wind­ing mech­a­nism. The in­dices are made of metal and mounted on two linked and rigid ti­ta­nium rails at­tached di­rectly to the move­ment. Each in­dex has been filled with Lu­mi­nova for bet­ter read­abil­ity in the dark, which is a first for Richard Mille.
