Richard Mille launched two versions of RM 67-02 Automatic. Everyone is dedicated to athletes, South African sprint champion Wade Van Nikolk and Qatar Jumping Champion Mutaz Esa Balhim. RM 67-02 is based on RM 67-01, its ultra-thin case thickness is only 7.8 mm, with a sports appearance.
Richard Mille’s extraordinary skill in use of high-tech materials also reduces the weight to only 32 grams, making these watches the lightest automatic watch in the brand series. These watches are different from any other watch on the market, and the hollow movement is also very unique and has a series of curved bridges. The central bridge is the color of the country where hand-painted athletes are located. The function of this watch is minimalist: hours and minutes, no seconds, no dates.
Inspiration for RM 67-02
Richard Mille replica personally describes the inspiration of Mutaz Essa Barshim watches. “I have conducted a fifteen years of work to push the senior tab industry to the niche market that has been incorporated, and open to new areas that have not yet developed or service. With high jump, there is a blank slate. Despite this, the challenge is still huge, because Mutaz only can rely on him to seek new records. Therefore, it is necessary to make the watch really “becoming some of him”, just like the second floor skin. It must be light and ventilated, but Also comfortable … “
The casing is relatively small, with a width of 38.7 mm, and the lug is 47.5 mm. Its organic stripe appearance is made by using Quartz TPT, which is made of a silica gel line soaked in a color resin for the lap and bottom cover. The strap is made of nanofiber composite carbon TPT. Both materials are proprietary by Richard Mille manufactured by Switzerland North Thin Ply Technology (explained the abbreviation of TPT). The titanium metal spline screw fixes the outer casing together. Surprisingly, the watches are only 3 bar, which is the minimum standard of most watches. It is enough to endure the sweat, a little bit of rain, but not much.
The seventh internal movement CRMA7 of the best Richard Mille movement has a bottom plate and a bridge made of titanium. The oscillation weight is carbon TPT and platinum. The power reserve is about 50 hours. Essence is variable, with four positioning screws for regulating, and runs 28,800 vibrations (4 Hz) per hour. The movement fuses the iconic technology of Richard Mille, such as reducing the friction special gear tooth shape and rapid rotating hair strip. This brand represents the phenomenon of cyclical adhesion, thereby improving performance. Surface treatments include gray and black DLC processes for the bottom plate and the bridge, as well as some detail microsaves. Richard Mille’s movement has a unique sense of beauty, only close to the use of magnifying glass to truly appreciate it.
The skeleton of the movement is attractive and compensated. Interestingly, how different brands develop their own special architecture. Richard Mille’s work is based on the curved bridge, and Roger Dubuis uses a star. You can see star echo in the RM 67-02 hollow pendant weight.
The new elastic strap or “comfort belt” is designed for a replica automatic watches wearing a athlete of Richard Mille family. It is light, elastic, seamless and non-slip, ensures excellent comfort.
