Richard Mille RM 11-05 self-winding flyback chronograph

Gray Cermet has emerged in this new timepiece.

In keeping with the spirit of replica Richard Mille, Grey Cermet is the result of arduous research by the brand, which is firmly committed to creating new materials. The exclusive Richard Mille watchmaking material combines the lightness of titanium with the hardness of diamonds.

The structure of the self-winding movement makes titanium metal proud. Its functions include a GMT display, with the help of a button at 9 o’clock, a 24-hour flyback chronograph and an annual calendar, which can be easily adjusted. The added grey cermet is suitable for the pure aerodynamic lines of the iconic case, with a size of 50 x 42.70 mm and a total thickness of 16.15 mm.

The unique gray color of cermets is due to the combination of metal zirconium base and high-performance ceramic blades. Its implementation needs to correspond to the rigor required to create the material itself. It is a challenge to heat and press very different kinds of materials together at high temperatures without changing their respective qualities. Facts have proved that it is more difficult to obtain a uniform overall, because in order to comply with the REACH standard, the nickel and cobalt normally used in this hard material series are excluded, thereby ensuring the safety of the European chemical production and use industry.

After years of development, Richard Mille and IMI Group, which specializes in microtechnology, have removed these bad adhesives and only retained suitable materials. The innovative process used in this solution combines classic hot stamping with a series of powerful current pulses to improve sintering kinetics. This is a technique called “rapid sintering”. Its density is 4.1 g/cm3, which is lower than that of titanium, and its density is titanium. The 2360 Vickers hardness—almost the same as the diamond’s 2400 Vickers—makes cermets a wise choice for bezels that are very easy to scratch and maintain overall brightness. The physical properties of cermets are widely recognized, so they are often used in bulletproof protection, external aerospace fuselage components, and brakes for racing replica watches

Double barrel system

The dual barrel system helps maintain torque stability for a longer period of time. This is achieved by using a higher degree of rotation of the barrel, which reduces the pressure and wear on the teeth, bearings and pivots, thereby improving long-term performance.

Free spring balance with variable inertia

This balance wheel represents the ultimate goal of innovation. It guarantees higher reliability when it is impacted and during assembly or disassembly of the movement, so it has better timing over time. The regulator index is eliminated, and because of the 4 small adjustable weights directly on the balance, more accurate and repeatable calibration can be performed.

Spline screws in grade 5 titanium for bridging and housing

This allows better control of the torque applied to the screw during assembly. These screws are not affected by physical operations during assembly or disassembly, and they age well.

The RM 11-05 automatic flyback timing GMT will be available in July 2020.
