As hard as a diamond, cermet reappears on the appearance of the new Richard Mille RM 11-05 automatic flyback timing GMT, and Richard Mille continues to dabble in the fascinating world of tan-free materials. Essentially, the brand is equivalent to the 911, which means that it is priced at the same price as the Porsche 911 (Turbo S, remember, the price is the same), and has maintained its original, recognizable shape while evolving. The RM 11-05 includes GMT in its feature-rich movement, which can power it for a long time. But first, let’s talk briefly about Cermet.
Richard Mille’s character trait is to seek to create lighter and more durable materials. Richard Mille has found a variety of carbon, metal, ceramic and even quartz methods in the appearance and movement, and even allowed the brand to produce record-setting light watches, so that wealthy customers can be in racing or He was beaten when he fell. On the tennis court. fake Richard Mille is as tiring as the car analogy, and his tireless pursuit of car design and material performance is indeed comparable to that of supercar manufacturers. After all, its customers are more willing to bear the cost, so why not?
As the most important material category, cermet is no stranger to luxury watches. Cermet is an abbreviation for the following materials: I will give you some time to make an educated guess… Yes, ceramics and metals. When I heard Cermet, I immediately thought of the Jaeger-LeCoultre deep-sea chronographs, which are famous for using a certain Cermet, and overlap with the confusion of the names of the Rolex watches of the same name.
The 2,360 Vickers hardness is the hardness of the so-called “gray cermet”. This is what materials scientists tend to call “very hard.” From a perspective, the Gray Cermet in the RM 11-05 case is six times harder than hardened stainless steel. The latter usually runs at 390 Vickers, which is about 12 times harder than the 210 Vickers in 18k gold. Cermet was jointly developed with IMI Group (a UK-based engineering company with a name similar to the employer of the Bond villain), and its gray color is attributed to the combination of metal zirconium matrix and high-performance ceramic inserts.
It is very difficult to heat and press these different types of materials together, and it must also look beautiful enough to help justify the six-figure price. Specifically, the challenge is to remove undesirable adhesives and obtain a uniform whole. The physical properties of cermet make it the material of choice for bulletproof protection (you might be a bit armed with pickles if you find yourself with your companions), and the external aerospace fuselage components (if you hang the PJ out of your arm) will be convenient Windows), and of course the brakes of the car.
The case size of the Richard Mille RM 11-05 automatic flyback chronograph GMT watch in Cermet is fixed together by 20 spline screws made of grade 5 titanium alloy. The lugs are 50.00mm to the lugs. The diameter is 42.70mm and the total thickness is 16.15mm. Match it with the trademark arched back cover, the smooth strap fusion, and the incomparable but never-matched feel of the Richard Mille rubber strap, and you will have a super comfortable garment. I think the brand should now consider providing accurate weight measurements of watches, so that prospective buyers can choose one model based on this number instead of another, just like when they buy Superleggera cars.
The RMAC3 of the Richard Mille movement is still too numerous to list: this is a chronograph with a flyback function, Greenwich Mean Time (GMT) indication and an annual calendar. This may be the most luxurious watch One of the best secrets of complexity. The power reserve is 50 hours (+/- 10%), the operating frequency is 28,800 vph, the moment of inertia is 4.8 mg•cm2, and the lifting angle is 53°. The barrel knife shaft is made of AP20 steel-just toss it there because I know this is a controversial aspect of watchmaking today.
I guess, as opposed to the luminous materials that were madly smuggled into manufacturers on Christmas Eve, the exquisite carbon fiber flanges filled with “approved luminous materials” still make engineering crazy. The dial is made of sapphire crystal glass with a thickness of 0.40mm, and both sides are anti-glare treatment-Richard Mille (Richard Mille) watch may be the weakest link, because this coating is often on the dial itself ( Instead of the outer crystal) produces a unique blue glare. I hope this is a neutral paint. For example, the rim of the sapphire crystal is 0.84 mm thicker than the thickness at the center, or the bottom plate and bridge of the movement are made of wet sandblasted titanium alloy (as opposed to high-quality old brass). Richard Mille watches -And its price.
Richard Mille RM 11-05 automatic flyback timing GMT. The ultra-high-end chronograph series started from RM 011 in 2007 and developed to the current level of development with the development of RM 11-03. Its over-design in machinery and materials has hardly reached the level of matching and surpasses competitors Pricing.
