Richard Mille unveiled six new pieces at SIHH in Geneva last week. Those familiar with his craftsmanship will not be disappointed. His distinct style shines through with some re-imagined adjustments.
The RM 030 employs technology that has been developed and researched over four year in the winding mechanism that prevents overwinding. Overwinding can damage a timepiece and traditionally is prevented by a sliding flange that allows the spring to slip once wound. Over time debris builds up that can erode the mechanism. The RM 030 features a declutching rotor that disengages the winding barrel automatically after winding.
Richard Mille’s collection also includes the RM 038 that uses a magnesium aluminum casing, the RM 029 that has an oversize date, and the RM 017 which features an ultra-thin rectangular case.
