Richard Mille RM 21-01 Tourbillon Aerodyne

The combination of bold design and extraordinary materials makes Richard Mille fake watches truly unique. In the pursuit of continuous innovation, this Swiss brand designed watches that can withstand the most extreme conditions, thanks to advanced mechanical engineering solutions and materials extracted from the world of aviation and Formula One racing, they are lightweight and durable .

The new RM 21-01 Tourbillon Aerodyne is the latest proof of this bold watchmaking craftsmanship.

The complex structure of the 5N red gold case is reinforced by an exoskeleton made of carbon fiber TPT for the bezel and pillars.

This composite material was originally developed for the sails of racing yachts, and later also used in F1 car chassis and aviation. This composite material not only has excellent physical properties, but also has a unique appearance. The undulating pattern is because it is composed of multiple layers of parallel filaments obtained by dividing carbon fibers.

These layers have a maximum thickness of 30 microns, are impregnated with resin, and then woven on a special machine that changes the direction of the weft between the two layers by 45°. After heating it to 120°C under a pressure of 6 bar, NTPT is processed using a special CNC machine in Richard Mille’s ProArt enclosure factory.

The eye-catching appearance of the Carbon TPT layer complements the warm golden tones and the royal blue honeycomb pattern of the bottom plate. richard mille for sale

The oblique honeycomb structure is made of nickel-chromium-aluminum-iron alloy Haynes 214 and is treated with blue PVD. With its characteristics, the bottom plate of RM 21-01 can provide unparalleled stiffness, extremely low coefficient of thermal expansion and excellent torque resistance.

For the bridge, Richard Mille chose grade 5 titanium because of its excellent rigidity and excellent corrosion resistance. The barrel and tourbillon bridge are composed of four arms, plated with gold on the hollow circular base, located in the central crucible on the edge of the gold, providing them with ideal mechanical properties, making them very suitable for the rotation of these moving parts, while making The appearance of the tourbillon is more beautiful. impressive.

The manual winding RM21-01 movement is PVD treated with 5N rose gold and polished by hand. It beats at a speed of 21.600 vibrations per hour and has 70 hours of autonomy. The power reserve indicator replaces the number at 11 o’clock, and the torque indicator is placed symmetrically at 1 o’clock. In this way, the tension of the barrel spring can be known, thereby optimizing the function of the movement.

At 4 o’clock, we find the function selector, which is operated by a button integrated in the center of the crown. Just press it once, by switching it from neutral (N) position to winding (W) or manual setting (H).

The triple shell size is 42.68 x 50.12 x 14.30 mm, and the water resistance is up to 50 meters/165 feet. It is sealed by 2 nitrile rubber O-rings. The case is equipped with 20 grade 5 titanium spline screws and 316L stainless steel wear-resistant washers. swiss watches prices
