RM 50-03 McLaren-F1

Richard Mille 2017

Men's

RM 50-03 McLaren-F1 square

 

 

The movement of this RM 50-03 tourbillon split-seconds

Chronograph, with 30-minute totaliser and indicators for power reserve, torque

and function, barely tips the scales at 7 grams. The entire watch, developed in

partnership with McLaren, the famed F1 constructor, weighs a record-breaking 40

grams in total, including the strap. Its Secret is the use of graphene, a

revolutionary nanomaterial that is six times lighter but 200 times stronger

than steel. Richard Mille's engineers have succeeded in injecting graphene into

the 600 layers of TPT carbon filaments that are used to obtain an

ultra-resistant case. The highly skeletonised movement is fashioned from grade

5 titanium.
