I often think of a case made entirely of sapphire crystal in order to explore the inner mechanisms. So I was very excited to see the new Richard Mille RM056 Felipe Massa Sapphire Tourbillon Split Seconds Race Chronograph (yes, that’s the full name…).
The RM056 is equipped with a very sophisticated hand-wound tourbillon movement with hours, minutes, split-seconds chronograph, power reserve and torque indicator.
The entire case is cut and milled from a solid block of sapphire, an engineering challenge given the material’s extreme hardness. The result is a scratch-resistant case that reveals the complexity of the mechanism.
All bezel case parts are treated with an anti-glare coating for optimum optics. All parts of the movement are perfect, most of which are made of titanium, and the total weight is less than 10 grams. fake watches for sale
