RICHARD MILLE – RM 67-01 Automatique Extraplate

What gives a timepiece personality is when you can easily recognise its design, even from afar. A Richard Mille watch is instantly recognisable and the RM 67-01 is no different. The unisex watch is all in proportion with a super-slim barrel-shape case in three parts and a self-winding core: that’s a brief look at its lovely features. The extra-thin skeleton CRMA6 calibre brings the time to life on the openwork dial surrounded by a screwdown bezel: hours and minutes in the centre, semi-instant date display in a vertical luminescent display at 5 o’ clock and a function indicator at 2 o’ clock. The latter acts like a gearstick and enables you to wind the watch (W), set the date (D) or time (H). The metal time indices are coated in Super LumiNova® and set on two titanium rails fitted straight onto the movement which elevates the 3D effect of the model’s dial. Price on request. Sharmila Bertin
