This is the first swiss watches brands launched by Richard Mille in 2017. It reflects the partnership he signed with McLaren in 2016, which is a ten-year protocol.
It is based on Richard’s true passion for McLaren: in 1966, he watched the McLaren team’s debut in Monaco. The watch incorporates high-tech materials, such as titanium and carbon TPT, as well as the world’s first in watchmaking, Graph TPT or Graphene. Graphene developed by the University of Manchester is six times lighter than steel and 200 times stronger. In watches, it is used to enhance the physical properties of carbon TPT used in the case, bottom plate and bridge. Graphene is also incorporated into the rubber of the strap to increase elasticity and wear resistance. Graphene itself is a new material, and it cannot be used alone like the current state of research because it has too many holes.
The result is a watch with a movement weighing only 7 grams, while the entire watch weighs 40 grams. It is the lightest second chronograph in the world. The manual winding RM50-03 movement with approximately 600 parts has a tourbillon escapement, and in order to reduce energy dissipation in the gear train, a special gear profile for the barrel and gear train has been developed. The performance of the movement is displayed on the top of the dial with a 70-hour power reserve indicator and torque sensor. This shows the tension of the mainspring, so the user can keep the watch in its best condition. The crown has a torque limiter, so you will not damage the movement due to winding. The movement operates at a speed of 21,600 vibrations (3 Hz) per hour.
The chronograph is controlled by a column wheel, presumably by a horizontal clutch. The timer control system has been re-developed with a new 6-pin cylindrical gear, a new fixture design and other functions designed to reduce the movement torque changes when operating the timer. All these functions can improve timing accuracy. The layout of the buttons is different from most timers: in this watch, the button at 8 o’clock starts and stops the chronograph, and the button at 4 o’clock stops the minute hand so that the intermediate time can be read. Press the button again, the second hand will return to the other chronograph hand, and the two hands will continue to be together. The ten o’clock button resets the hands.

The width of the watch is just over 44 mm, almost 50 mm from top to bottom. Its thickness is just over 16 mm. There is a function indicator on the crown that can display three positions, namely winding, neutral and hand setting. In the classic style of Richard Mille, this is a case that combines superb engineering technology and a barrel-shaped case. The case also determines the layout of the second hand scale, so it is impossible to obtain Accurate timer reading. But I think buyers of this type of replica watches usa are not interested in actually using the chronograph function.
