The first ultra-flat Richard Mille Tonneau watch — RM 67-01

The immediate predecessor of RM 67-02 was RM 67-01, which was first launched in 2016. I met Ted Fang, the owner of this model at the Richard Mille event in Singapore, and said, “From the moment I saw 67-01, I like it. It has all the Richard Mille design specifications I like, but it’s easy to wear Very simple and easy. When I first bought it, everyone was curious and asked me why I didn’t buy RM 11. Now everyone says it feels amazing to wear on the wrist. I think Richard knows that collectors will switch to buying thinner watches. , But he got there before most of the market. That’s Richard-always leading.”

RM 67-01 is an amazing timepiece. This is Mille’s first ultra-thin tonneau-shaped watch, equipped with a new internal automatic movement, equipped with CRMA6 platinum rotor, 3.6 mm high. Long before this, Richard Mille saw the need for more elegant dimensions while retaining the power of its design. Therefore, RM 67-01 is 7.75 mm high.

In many respects, the RM 67-01 is also the predecessor of Mille’s new RM 72-01 Lifestyle Chronograph and other watches, because it is more fashionable, more wear-resistant, and perhaps most importantly, from a cultural point of view, truly neutral. This is another example of Mille’s vision in a world where people no longer identify with traditional gender roles or gender watches. After all, Daytona is both a women’s watch and a men’s watch. Mille hopes that his watch will appeal to everyone, regardless of gender, and based purely on the strength of their personality. Looking at the RM 67-01, you can already see that in terms of his barrel-shaped watch, this watch represents the first dynamic shift to this concept. But in fact, Mille already has three other ultra-thin models that herald a slimmer return.

When it was first released in 2011, RM 033 was surprising and unexpected for two reasons. First, the 45.7mm case is round; secondly, this watch is ultra-thin, to be precise, an astonishing height of 6.3 mm, thanks to the lovely 2.6 mm thick RMXP1 micro-rotor movement inside. This movement is completely hollowed out with a bottom plate and bridge made of grade 5 titanium. The watch has radial Roman numerals. Although this watch is round, it is also ergonomically curved like all Mille designs, making it fit the wrist perfectly.

When it was first released in 2011, the RM 033 was surprising and unexpected because its 45.7 mm case was round; secondly, this watch was ultra-thin, to be precise, an astonishing 6.3 mm height, thanks to its lovely interior The 2.6 mm thick RMXP1 micro-rotor movement. The bottom of the RM 033 shows the 2.6 mm thick RMXP1 micro-rotor movement inside.

In 2015, Mille launched the RM 33-01, which is an enhanced version of its predecessor. The case size is 45.7 mm in diameter and 9.2 mm in height. The lugs are sharper and more angular. The dial now has an enlarged Mille Arabic mark. It also has a date and small seconds subdial, and the original RM 033 is more like a fancy chronograph watch. Then in 2019, we saw the launch of the amazing RM 33-02 with a width of 41.7 mm and a thickness of 8.8 mm. For me, this is Mille’s recognition that some of his audience really want smaller, thinner, more durable timepieces. This watch has a full Mille effect, which means a carbon TPT top and bottom cover and a red gold middle case. Like the original RM 033, it is also a chronograph watch. It is worth noting that these three watches are effortless to wear and are truly neutral. Although 45.7 mm may sound large, remember that all Mille cases are built with the focus on extreme ergonomic comfort, so the size adaptability is much better than the figure suggests.

What I found about Richard Mille’s RM 016 dating back to 2007 is that it is fundamentally ahead of the industry. Perhaps for this reason, many collectors at the time were a little unsure of how to make it. Until then, Richard’s most iconic watches, such as RM 001, RM 004 and RM 008, all adopted his stunning barrel shape and were relatively thick watches because they all contained Mille’s radical Different forms of aesthetics and seismic experiments will define the genetic blueprint of his brand in the future. However, the RM 16’s 38 mm wide and 49.8 mm long curved rectangular case is only 8.25 mm thick, and collectors are a little confused. After all, this is not the Mille watch they were looking forward to. However, for me, this is Richard’s first attempt to fundamentally improve the wear resistance of the watch by reducing the height of the case. RM 67-02 is a combination of this concept and the ultra-lightweight, seismic and material innovation experiments of RM 027 and RM 035. But without the important milestone of RM 016, I don’t think RM 67-02 will exist today.

The Richard Mille RM 016 is a curved rectangular watch case measuring 38 mm wide and 49.8 mm long with a thickness of only 8.25 mm. The Richard Mille RM 17-01 Tourbillon is a new interpretation of the RM 017. The smooth, elegant lines achieved through the unique tonneau-shaped case highlight its very elegant and technical movement.

In order to prove that his high complexity can also be the subject of ultra-thin experiments, Richard Mille introduced us to the RM 017 tourbillon in 2010. Although the surface of the case is an ergonomic RM 016 curved rectangle, here we have a spectacular hollow tourbillon movement. The thickness is only 4.65 mm, so the size of this watch is 49.8 mm x 38 mm, but the height Is 8.7 mm. In today’s context, there are thinner tourbillons and even automatic tourbillons, but in 2010, this was again far before the renaissance of ultra-thin watches. This was a pioneering and unconventional time. count. In addition, it should be said that this is one of my favorite Richard Mille movements. Although it is very slender, it displays all of Mille’s iconic ultra-skeleton theme with incredible beauty. So much so that even if it is not ultra-thin, I must yell at Richard Mille’s RM 17-01 here, which is the same movement placed in a normal-sized carbon TPT wine barrel box, in the miniature rose A version of the Golden Highlight 10 watches. It also uses the white and black ceramic versions released last year. I don’t know why these watches will suddenly appear in 2020. Maybe someone opened a drawer at RM headquarters and found some remaining movements, but I only know that this is one of my favorite Richard Milles. Thanks to the carbon fiber TPT and the simple movement, this beauty with dimensions of 48.15 mm x 40.1 mm x 13.8 mm is as the Neapolitans say, “as light as the wind on Vesuvius.”

Richard Mille RM 56-02 Tourbillon Sapphire

Most attendees at SIHH 2012 agreed that the most famous, watched and famous watch in the show was replica Richard Mille’s sapphire case model. It is different from anything the industry has never seen before, and caused a sensation, not only because of its sapphire case (a very tricky material), but also because of its unavailable price tag.

Richard Mille (Richard Mille) is very rare, even in the watch industry no one else can beat, but they prefer to surpass their own achievements. Therefore, since launching the first glass masterpiece, they have further developed the technology of processing and milling crystal blocks, and launched its successor product RM 56-01 after its original RM 056 model, and recently launched this model. The new RM 56-02 Sapphire Tourbillon Watch was made for the event aptly named Watches and Wonders in Hong Kong.

Richard Mille RM 56-02 Sapphire Watch

In addition to the sapphire case, the main attraction of the movement lies in its movement. The arrangement of its new movement provides the illusion of a clock for onlookers, who will undoubtedly favor thousands of this watch. The movement is inspired by the special effects design of RM 27-01. You may remember that it is the clothes Rafael Nadal wears in his daily work. Even on a bad day, his serve on the tennis court may exceed limit. The bottom plate of the 100 mph movement is made of grade 5 titanium alloy. It is completely suspended in the sapphire case using a single braided cable only 0.35mm thick and woven in the pulley system of the movement. Each corner of the movement All have columns, and 6 calibers are placed along each corner of the movement. The ratchet (albeit small) at 9 o’clock controls the tension of the cable, and the tension indicator just below 12 o’clock is used to let the wearer know that everything is fine, or whether adjustments are needed to be made. But this is not all. Now, Richard Mille has a knack for making miniature parts from sapphire. For this new model, they have added a new sapphire winding barrel bridge, tourbillon and center bridge.

For the technicians who developed and built these fake Richard Mille showcase models, the case made of sapphire posed a huge challenge. Such a unique case should not be simply measured in millimeters, but should be measured by the time it takes to manufacture them. The processing time on each triple watch case has reached an astonishing 40 days, in addition, the processing and finishing time of the movement bridge has reached 400 hours. In addition to allocating the time and number of days for each watch, Richard Mille also invested time and resources to research and develop this new type of watch, so those who wish to add this new type of watch to their watch collection The people will pay a high price.

RICHARD MILLE Bonbon RM 07-03 Marshmallow

Richard Mille Bonbon series hands-on RM 07-03 cupcakes, RM 07-03 marshmallows and RM 16-01 Fraise watches

It may sound creepy, but sometimes I still wish I was like a fly. For example, when the idea for the Richard Mille Bonbon series was first proposed and displayed at the brand’s headquarters, or when SIHH’s participating brands saw Richard Mille’s swan song at the last SIHH this year. In other words, Richard Mille RM 07-03 cupcakes, Richard Mille RM 07-03 marshmallows and Richard Mille RM 16 -01 Fraise is essentially destined to be programmed, and may even be programming to make people feel frustrated-although I believe we all agree that for the watch industry, brazen creativity is bound to be the ultimate goal.

I do not know. Maybe you think you did it, but in fact, you can’t be sure. I mean, I still don’t know whether Bonbon Collection is a practical (and expensive) joke, or whether it’s a genuine product after serious consideration of market research and a deep understanding of a dedicated customer base. A practical joke might be told jokingly, especially because Richard Mille is one of the few brands that might actually make such bold moves. Just look at the random “SWISS MADE” text in places where no one asked or on the crown of a real cupcake.

Or just take a look at this diabetes-inducing dial. There are lollipops and other kinds of candies on it. I don’t even know their names. These are handmade and placed in carefully processed high-tech titanium. On the movement, there is almost no description of how it is made in the luxury watch industry-let alone the actual production. For the record, Richard Mille has always relied on Manufacture Vaucher’s expertise to develop simpler automatic movements, and APR&P to solve complex movements. Those clumsy hands polarized the children’s dream diet and ultra-high-end watchmaking. Such clumsy hands are so large and exquisite, they have the opportunity to spend a long time in their long lives. night of.

After Richard Mille fake has conducted a good study of the ultra-high-end luxury accessories market, its current trends and best-selling products and other products, could this become a product? Sincerely hope that the established customer base? Maybe all it has to do is to design a fashionable, colorful and cheerful watch to fully meet their needs? Ariel said the best thing is that when he referred to them as jewelry projects in our hands-on video, it was when we saw the Richard Mille Bonbon collection at SIHH 2019.

Please correct me if I am wrong, but I believe that in general, high-end jewellery will not only be passed because of such fun and creativity, but also in general. In contrast, according to some people, the creativity of watchmaking should be limited to the difference in the shape of the dial in a hand-wound chronograph movement… Maybe the red chronograph second hand is acceptable.

This lays the foundation for an environment that is usually hostile and extremely critical of watches that can be described as weird and unusual bursts of creativity. Therefore, over the years, we have seen hot-selling brands be severely criticized by people who have such insistent, stale, and more traditional tastes. Some long-established brands and fast-developing top brands have been motivated by their success. They have launched more and more bold new watches, and they think their brands are strong enough. Franck Muller and Audemars Piguet quickly thought of different versions of their mistakes, and spent a lot of time on it. The difference between them and Richard Mille is that the Richard Mille brand is clearly strong enough to adopt this brazen design on its core design-although it is worth noting that RM has made the famous RM- 11 got rid of this adventure completely.

Just look at where the world’s leading high-end fashion houses buy women’s clothing, shoes and accessories, you will find that basically no well-known ultra-high-end watch brand can provide or even easily integrate into the world. The fashion company decided to adopt bold proportions and crazy colors and have an immediate impact on a global scale.

Given the actual pain of lack of fashionable women’s replica watches, I can hardly imagine that these parts spend too long on the shelf. As far as women’s watches are concerned, no well-known brand can achieve such an absurd level of creativity. Today, Cartier and Bulgari play too many roles within their own DNA, while Patek Philippe and Jaeger-LeCoultre are limited to the neatly executed craftsmanship and ambiguity. The combination of emotional inspiration is mostly cheesy things, such as ocean fish, or northern lights. Fashion-conscious people all over the world simply cannot adapt them to the daily rotation of expensive clothes. Therefore, these watches, with very few exceptions, can only truly pass in watchmaking and cannot have sufficient external influence. Sad, but real. Richard Mille walked all the way through the wall and introduced his colleagues to what they obviously wanted/needed lately.

Richard Mille’s Bonbon series actually contains 10 different references, divided into four segments in the “Sweets” (dessert) and six segments in the “Fruits” row. Each reference is limited to 30 pieces, so a total of 300 Bonbon Collection watches will be produced. In this hands-on article, we sampled three pieces: Richard Mille RM 07-03 cupcakes, Richard Mille RM 07-03 marshmallows and Richard Mille RM 16-01 Fraise, the latter is essentially a male model of these three . To me, any name or collection has no meaning. My favorite bundle, the block-shaped multi-color item RM 16-01 Fraise, is called strawberry, so it belongs to the Fruits series, and basically only contains candies and fruit-shaped candies.

These are Richard Mille watches, they are of course full of high-tech and highly refined details. The colorless and variable-thickness carbon TPT layer constitutes the two-color packaging box of the Fruits series, and TZP Ceramic is used to make the cream soft box of the Sweets series. To make the dial, a total of 3,000 hand-painted and hand-painted miniature sculptures were produced, and a new “sugar-coated” effect was developed using powdered enamel and fine sand in an hourglass. It is an old-school craft in Carbon TPT.

So why should we let watch lovers pay attention to this series of extremely expensive candy watches? Because they remind us of high-end watches and exquisite handicrafts, not only need to be used to make derivative watches, I suspect they can be passed, but these will not. But one thing tells me that the small workshop of 3000 colorful dial components met this challenge in the field activities, instead of painting the round dial with cheesy and tacky enamel enamel images. Just guessing.

To answer the original question, I think the solution is to combine the Richard Mille Bonbon Collection: This is a practical joke prepared after careful measurement of the customers who have established and tested Richard Mille Black Centurion. Swipe to be a part of such elaborate jokes. The show-off power of Richard Mille’s name makes its timepiece entertaining an unparalleled execution quality. Please give me a reason why it doesn’t work.

Breitling launches 5 new watches in the “Navitimer 8” series

You may remember the former leader of IWC, Georges Kern, who left the company to take over as fake Breitling. Changing the position of the CEO is not unprecedented, but it can always arouse people’s curiosity. Now, we can finally take a look at his first work, introducing the “Navimer 8” series.

So far, he has been at Breitling headquarters for more than half a year. But, until now, the charismatic Georges Kern has launched their first major series under the guidance of the newly appointed creative director Guy Bove. At first glance, these various Navitimer watches combine an old-fashioned pilot look, reminiscent of Breitling’s pilot model 768.

In structure, they have a bezel with 60 positions, some smaller case size options, and all have passed the COSC certification of astronomical watch manufacturing. For a brand that has been engaged in more gorgeous and over-detailed designs in the recent period, Georges Kern brought back the old-fashioned aesthetics of Breitling and has enough modernity to make it look fresh. It is refreshing. Let us briefly describe the various cheap luxury watches

First of all, we obtained the “Breitling B01” case with a 43mm case: stainless steel or 18k rose gold with a sturdy case. Mounted on the case is a knurled two-way bezel with the above 60 positions, which appear on all these different models. Like all these timepieces, the top is equipped with a sapphire crystal, which helps it reach a water-resistant depth of 100 meters (330 feet).

The time is displayed in the following positions: a black or blue dial with Arabic numerals, followed by a ring with a smaller minute index mark and Arabic numerals that increase every five minutes. There are three silver subdials: a 30-minute counter at 3 o’clock; a 12-hour counter at 6 o’clock, and a sub-second at 9 o’clock.

The central sword pointer and Arabic numerals are treated with luminous coating to enhance readability. There is also a date hole between 4 o’clock and 5 o’clock. Except for the 18 rose gold version, only the brown dial is available.

Breitling Navitimer B01
This “Breitling Navitimer B01” (reference number: N/A) is powered by a self-winding mechanical movement, which has 47 jewels and 28,800 Vph. Equipped with column wheel, vertical clutch and automatic centering weight. When fully tightened, the power reserve of this watch can be as long as 70 hours. The IWC stainless steel bracelet is equipped with an IWC stainless steel bracelet, which is fixed to the wrist by a stainless steel folding clasp. In addition to the 18k rose gold version, the black leather strap is also equipped with a brown leather strap and is secured by an 18k rose gold folding clasp.

Next is the “Breitling Navitimer 8 Unitime”, which is a world chronograph watch that adds additional complexity. Its 43 mm case is made of stainless steel with a strong case back. The knurled stainless steel two-way bezel is mounted on the case. It is also equipped with a patented independent adjustable hour hand; plus a 24-hour city circle integrated into the movement through a clever differential system.

The time is displayed on the black or silver dial, with a minute index ring with Arabic numerals and a railway pattern on it, then a 24-hour disc in the second time zone, and the last ring is the names of major cities in the world, which are interconnected. To an additional time zone. There is also a date hole at 6 o’clock.

For those who need more sports options, the next step is the “Breitling Navitimer 8 Chronograph”. This is also a “value proposition” option because the model has greater advantages. In addition to the timing function, the timepiece also includes the date, making it an excellent choice for daily use. The 43mm case is made of any of the following: stainless steel or stainless steel coated with DLC. Equipped with two buttons for chronograph functions and a two-way bezel that matches each case.

The time is displayed in the following positions: Arabic numerals on a black or blue dial, followed by a railway pattern minute index circle, which is characterized by Arabic numerals in increments every 5 minutes. There are three small dials: the 12-hour counter at 6 o’clock; the time at 9 o’clock is less than one second; and the 30-minute counter at 12 o’clock. It also includes the aforementioned date and date aperture window at 3 o’clock.

Breitling Navitimer 8 Chronograph
This “Breitling Navitimer 8 Chronograph” (reference number: N/A) is powered by a self-winding mechanical movement, movement B13 with 25 jewels and 28,800 Vph. A non-internal movement, originally based on the ETA 7750 mechanical movement. When fully wound, the power reserve of this watch can be as long as 42 hours.

The fourth product of these new versions is “Breitling Navitimer 8 Day & Date”. Delicately made of 41mm stainless steel case with a strong case back. When installed on the case, the same knurled stainless steel two-way bezel was found in this newly released series.

The time is displayed in the following positions: Arabic numerals on a black or blue dial, followed by a railway pattern minute index circle, which is characterized by Arabic numerals in increments every 5 minutes. Then indicate the date in the large aperture window below the 12 o’clock position. The display of the day has a small window at 6 o’clock.
