The Le Mans Classic is a biennial vintage sports car event held at the legendary Le Mans circuit. The event includes a series of races that have participated in the 24 Hours of Le Mans or similar races of the same model. Auto shows and auctions are also held on the track, and various auto clubs meet to display machinery.
As the official partner of this event since its inception in 2002, Richard Mille will present their new watch, the RM 11-03 Le Mans Classic Flyback Chronograph, an individually numbered limited edition of 150 pieces packed in a super sports Three-part barrel box (49.94 mm x 44.50 mm x 16.15 mm).
The first RM 11-03 made of white ceramic, this new model features a typical British racing green.

The large date display of the annual calendar-which can automatically adjust the months of 30 and 31 days-is placed in the green outline horizontal hole below 12 o’clock, while the small month display is located between 4 and 5 o’clock. Richard Mille luxury
