The case of this new icon in the collection represented the first time that the tonneau shape has been created in an extra-flat form, making it the most sleek model of the tonneau shaped Richard Mille timepieces.
Its refined dimensions require more time to create than other similar cases in the collection, adding up to almost 6 hours of pure machining time, not counting weeks of preliminary preparation such as the 68 different stamping operations required for the bezel, caseband and back bezel.
Automatic skeletonised winding movement with hours, minutes, date and function indicator.
Microblasted grade 5 titanium with grey electroplasma treatment gives great rigidity to the baseplate, as well as precise surface flatness which is essential for the perfect functioning of the gear train.
Bridges are also in grade 5 titanium, microblasted and for the first time at Richard Mille, black electroplasma treated. The skeletonised baseplate and the bridges were subjected to separate and extensive validation tests to ensure optimal strength requirements.
