If high-end watchmaking shows off its skills, it is really hard to keep a low profile. As a model among pioneer watchmaking brands, Richard Mille has never stopped in pursuit of watchmaking skills. The brand’s new RM 65-01 is a highly complex sports watch, and at the same time, this watch is also developed for everyday wear. If you are also looking for extraordinary, then this watch must be your choice. (Model: RM 65-01)
After nearly five years of careful research and development, this split-second self-winding chronograph is the most complex timepiece ever produced in the brand’s workshop. As a non-limited watch, the RM 65-01 shows the ingenious craftsmanship of watchmaking. The combination of its complex functions, unique structure and sublime aesthetics fully reflects Richard Mille’s technical pursuit. In short, only with enough patience, superb craftsmanship and extraordinary perseverance can this daunting challenge in the mechanical watch world be completed.
The RM 65-01 embodies how we interpret a highly complex chronograph inspired by motorsport. It fully embodies our technical approach, as it incorporates several additional functions, a very special architecture and an aesthetic appearance of the highest level.
The watch adopts a hollowed-out automatic winding movement with hours and minutes display, stopwatch at 6 o’clock, date display and split-second chronograph function. At 3 o’clock is the 30-minute counter, and at 9 o’clock is the 12-hour counter. The color of the watch is embellished with bright colors such as red, green and yellow, which presents us with a very dynamic sports best luxury replica watches as a whole.
The bottom plate of the watch is treated with gray plasma, and the bridges are treated with black PVD and gray plasma. With excellent biocompatibility and corrosion resistance, grade 5 titanium is a high-performance cemented carbide that ensures the smooth and efficient operation of the movement’s gear train. The alloy is composed of 90% titanium, 6% aluminum and 4% vanadium. This combination can further enhance the mechanical properties of the material and is therefore often used in aerospace and automotive manufacturing. The base plate of the RMAC4 movement has been optimized to achieve an extremely low weight-to-impact ratio advantage.
In addition to automatic winding and crown winding, a quick-winding mechanism was also developed. When the watch is stopped, the device can be used to quickly wind the watch. Pressing the pusher at 8 o’clock fully restores the barrel. If the watch has not been worn for a long time, this button can make the watch regain power, which can be said to be a very practical function.
The RM 65-01 replica features a highly specialized gearbox design for winding and date and hand setting functions. To switch back and forth between these different functions, the button located in the middle of the crown is used to select the desired function, and the hand at 4 o’clock is moved by W (winding), D (date setting) or H (manual setting) to indicate the corresponding function.
The red button for the fast-winding function allows the barrel to be fully restored. With a high vibration frequency of 5 Hz (36,000 vibrations per hour), the free spring balance wheel can more effectively enhance the reliability of the watch when it is subjected to vibration, movement assembly and disassembly operations, to ensure more accurate long-term performance. when leaving. With an accuracy of 1/10th of a second, Richard Mille’s new balance wheel is ideal for split-second chronographs used in sports.
Rubber strap with pin buckle design. Adjust the inertia of the oscillating weight by adjusting the 3-position setting of the outer ring of the oscillating weight. Therefore, if the number of wrist swings is small, the movement will speed up the winding speed; if the wearer is exercising vigorously, the winding speed will slow down. The value of this innovation lies in the individual and optimal adjustment of the winding mechanism of the movement according to the wearer’s living habits.
Such a split-seconds chronograph watch with fast winding function and Richard Mille’s iconic barrel-shaped case design, combined with a sporty youthful and fashionable color scheme, is very suitable for the choice of the younger generation who pursues individuality.
