Richard Mille unveils new RM33-01 Automatic watch ahead of 2015 SIHH
The new skeletonised Richard Mille RMXP3 caliber that will drive the RM 33-01 has an off-center platinum micro rotor. This architecture reveals the grade 5 titanium movement, which is wet sandblasted and electro-plasma-treated, the surfaces micro-blasted, drawn and satin-finished and the anglage entirely worked by hand.
The apparently traditional conceptual approach is very quickly dominated by the taut lines of the sports-inspired design that combines the curvature of the brand’s tonneau cases with the constructions characteristic of its round watches. The graphic style of the numerals contribute to confirming the watch’s dynamic energy, while their outsized dimensions offer a dial with perfect readability.
The tripartite case, with a diameter of 45.70 mm and a thickness of 9.20 mm, is mounted on a rubber strap secured with a folding clasp in grade 5 titanium. Water-resistant to 30 meters, it is assembled using 14 grade 5 titanium spline screws.
The RM 33-01 will be available in titanium, red gold or white gold with a caseband in grade 5 titanium
