FOR A MUTED JOURNEY IN BUSINESS CLASS
Being discreetly alerted by your watch, just like your smartphone: this is the particularly impressive feature of this exclusive production aimed at demanding travelers.
Once again, Richard Mille proves to us that simplicity is the ultimate sophistication (Leonardo da Vinci). The RM62-01 Tourbillon Alarm ACJ proposes a discreet alternative to the traditional chimes of watch complications. The result of the second cooperation with Airbus Corporate Jets, this timepiece vibrates on demand to the nearest minute thanks to an impressive alarm which has been five years in the making. The off-center dial at 4:40 enables it to be adjusted. It also has its own dedicated barrel to power it. Pressing 12 times on the pusher at 8 o’clock ensures it lasts for 12 seconds. An indicator at 7 o’clock provides the owner with further information about the remaining power reserve.
Regulating the time information, no less than 816 components work together to form the manual-winding caliber of this 30-piece limited edition.
