The RM 67-02 is ever lighter and more powerful, and is now joined by three new models dedicated to some outstanding athletes. We take a closer look!
What do the tennis player Alexander Zverev, the skier Alexis Pinturault and the Formula 1 driver Fernando Alonso have in common? Apart from the fact that they are all famous sportsmen, they now have a Richard Mille watch associated with their name. To understand why, we need to take a flash-back to 2015, when the brand unveiled an elegant-looking model, the RM 67-01. The timepiece made no claims to rival the stars of the extra-flat, but its light and robust case made of Quartz TPT® and just 7.8mm thick was the forerunner of a more radical development. Two years later, a sports version was launched, the RM 67-02. The strong point of these watches: a new self-winding calibre with finely tuned skeletonised design, the CRMA7, combined with a high-tech case made of Carbone TPT® and Quartz TPT®. Last but not least, by keeping to the essential with only the hours and minutes on display, the model weighs just 32 grams, including the strap!
The brand also made a brand-new strap, specially developed to provide an ultra-comfortable user experience. It is made in a single piece, and stands out through added suppleness, meaning it can be perfectly adjusted to its owner’s morphology, like a second skin.
