The RM 50-03 Mclaren F1 Tour­bil­lon Split Sec­onds Chrono­graph is the first of what we imag­ine will be a num­ber of prod­ucts born from the re­cently signed ten-year part­ner­ship be­tween the Swiss watch­maker, Richard Mille, and the English For­mula 1 au­tomaker Mclaren. Given both brands share the same val­ues of push­ing the lim­its of what is pos­si­ble in their re­spec­tive fields, this watch doesn’t dis­ap­point. Through a mar­riage of ex­cep­tion­ally strong and light­weight ma­te­ri­als, like ti­ta­nium, car­bon thin-ply tech­nol­ogy and, in a watch­mak­ing first, Graph TPT (which is six times lighter than steel and 200 times as strong), it tips the scales at just un­der 40 grams (in­clud­ing the strap), mak­ing it the light­est split sec­onds chrono­graph ever cre­ated. Only 75 pieces will be made, for an eye-wa­ter­ing sum of 980,000 USD.
