Richard Mille has been an official partner of Le Mans Classic since its inception in 2002. Over the weekend, the brand unveiled a new watch dedicated to competition, the very sporty RM 11-03 LMC.
Following a now firmly established tradition, Richard Mille presents a new watch at the 2018 Le Mans Classic from July 6th to 8th (watch the video). Dedicated to endurance racing, the RM 11-03 Le Mans Classic timepiece is inspired by automotive history and sporting elements of the legendary British racing green in full Le Mans Classic style.
This limited edition of just 150 pieces is the first RM 11-03 to feature a white ceramic and carbon TPT® case. This material has an immutable color and is one of the hardest materials in the world after diamonds.
Motorsport details abound in the RM 11-03, from the crown design inspired by race rims and tire treads to the ribbed pushrods inspired by the grooves on the pedals made of the same material.
The Calibre RMAC3 is made of grade 5 titanium. The flyback chronograph and the seconds window’s coloured counters with smooth bevelled edges marking the middle time give the impression of depth. This sense of volume is further accentuated by the upper bridge made of satin-brushed grade 5 titanium, in contrast to the movement, which is also made of titanium but with a PVD coating.
The 24-hour flyback timing display highlights the number “16”, which refers to the start time of the race. watches replica online
