Beginning its adventure in 2001, the young horological Richard Mille Company has managed to gain the attention and admiration of watch collectors worldwide, becoming well-known on the watch market for its innovative design and manufacturing, using materials never seen before in watchmaking to create exclusive and original timepieces.
Recently, the company has introduced a new edition for divers, the Richard Mille RM 032 Automatic Chronograph watch, which offers a number of useful functions specific for a watch of its range. Therefore, the new RM 032 Automatic Chronograph model has been created to withstand ocean depths up to 300 meters and the solid, curved, three-part case design confirms that.
The timepiece features an oversized case measuring 50mm x 17,80mm which accommodates a reliable automatic winding movement that brings to life all functions of the RM 032 Automatic Chronograph: the basic functions plus the date and month functions and the fly-back chronograph function with seconds, 60-minute and 12-hour counters. Besides, the new Richard Mille model is available in titanium, 18Kt white gold or rose gold and is presented with a comfortable black rubber strap and an intriguing dial which exposes the amazing movement through the transparent crystal treated anti-reflection on both sides.
The aforementioned movement that animates the watch is the 62-jewel self-winding caliber RMAC2 movement which beats at a rate of 28,800 vph assuring the optimum functionality of the functions of the watch and boasting approximately 50 hours power-reserve and 45-hour if the chronograph is utilized. In addition, the mechanism is equipped with the company’s patented system of self-winding rotor with variable geometry and presents also an Incabloc system that provides resistance to shock.
Housed in the case is the intriguing dial provided with big hour and minute-hands, small seconds chronograph hand and white Superluminova numerals and indices which help divers to track the time in the water, while also for a clear visibility the minute markers between 12 and 3 o’clock are highlighted in red. The dial is completed with a date located in a red outlined aperture at 12 o’clock and a month indication, a fly-back chronograph hand, 60-minute and 12-hour counters and a running indicator nestled at 3 o’clock which thanks to its successive white Superluminova and black sections offer a great visual clarity making possible to check the correct functioning of the movement.
Additionally, the chronograph and the fly-back functions of the RM 032 Automatic Chronograph watch can be operated via the start/stop push-piece and respectively, the reset fly-back push-piece, both located on the sides of the crown, but the user can also lock the crown and pushers by rotating the crown’s ring to avoid any accidental manipulation during sea dives.
In conclusion, RM 032 Automatic Chronograph has all it takes for a diver’s timepiece, but it is also practical on land and this is thanks to the ingenuity of the experts within the company. The price of the timepiece starts at $125,000.
