As the main sponsor of the Les Voiles De St Barth Regatta, Richard Mille presents the limited edition RM 60-01 Les Voiles De St Barth. As the event cannot be held this year, the brand reiterates its commitment and intends to donate all proceeds from the sale of RM 60-01 to the St Barth’s initiative. The watch has a 50mm case made of titanium and carbon TPT. It also features a flyback chronograph and annual calendar. With its rotating bezel, this watch can also be used as a compass.
Shell and materials of RM 60-01 Les Voiles De St Barth
Richard Mille opted for a round case measuring 50 x 16.33 mm. It consists of four separate parts, including long titanium lugs. The middle section is also made of titanium, but with a carbon TPT insert. Additionally, 46 titanium screws hold the case together. Richard Mille can also lock the two chronograph pushers by turning the black ring on the crown. However, the UTC button used to increment the second time zone pointer is not affected by this. fake watch fashion
The case also has a rotating bezel made of titanium and carbon TPT with four cardinal points, a 360° measuring disc and a 24-hour scale. Together with the red UTC hand, sailors can orient themselves like a compass. First, the red hand is aligned with the sun. Then turn the bezel so that the hands correspond to the current hour in local time. The correct north, east, west and south directions are now displayed to the wearer.
The dial of the Richard Mille RM 60-01 Les Voiles De St Barth is made of sapphire crystal, thus providing a view of the mechanism. Additionally, the manufacturer has placed a turquoise-colored flange with dotted indexes around the dial. Two large hands with luminous material indicate the time. There is also a small seconds hand with a yellow hand at 3 o’clock. The watch has an annual calendar that distinguishes 30-day and 31-day months. To this end, there is an extra-large date window at 12 o’clock, and the current month is displayed between 4 o’clock and 5 o’clock.
The time measurement of the flyback chronograph is displayed on the countdown subdial at 9 o’clock. Here, the hands are replaced by a disc that can be used to read the elapsed minutes and the remaining time of the hour. In addition, there is a 24-hour totalizer at 6 o’clock.
The Manufacur movement RMAC2 inside the Richard Mille RM 60-01 Les Voiles De St Barth is visible through the sapphire crystal caseback. It also offers a 55-hour power reserve provided by two barrels. The winding rotor has a system that adjusts its geometry according to the wearer’s activity level. Watchmakers believe this will optimize the performance of the winding mechanism. In addition, Richard Mille uses a free spring balance with screws. The baseplate, bridge and balance cock are all made of PVD-coated grade 5 titanium, making the mechanism more stable.
The Richard Mille RM 60-01 Les Voiles De St Barth comes with a rubber strap with a pin buckle.
