Description

Richard Mille RM11-03 McLaren Automatic Flyback Chronograph Carbon NTPT and Orange Quartz-TPT Special Edition

This exclusive design of the Richard Mille RM11-03 was made in honor of McLaren Automotive's creations. The Skeletonized automatic Calibre RMAC3 winding movement is housed in a Carbon TPT and orange Quartz-TPT case. Made with Titanium Pushers fitted to the Carbon TPT caseband, which echo the design of the headlights on the 720S. This watch features Titanium inserts similar in shape to the iconic McLaren F1’s air vents and bearing the Richard Mille logo adorn the bezel. With an adjustable rotor geometry offering hours, minutes, seconds, flyback chronograph, 60-minute countdown timer at 9 o’clock, 12-hour totalizer, oversize date, month indicator and rotor with variable geometry.

Richard Mille and McLaren Automotive have just revealed their first jointly-commissioned timepiece, the new Richard Mille RM 11-03 McLaren Automatic Flyback Chronograph was unveiled at the Geneva International Motor Show during a reception hosted by McLaren Automotive CEO, Mr. Mike Flewitt and Richard Mille himself. The new RM 11-03 McLaren, created in close collaboration between McLaren Design Director Rob Melville and Richard Mille Engineer Fabrice Namura, has been in development since McLaren Automotive and Richard Mille partnered last year uniting a mutual interest in unique design, the use of new materials and modern craftsmanship. “The idea was to take on a real technical challenge, and come up with something other than a mere dial with an inscription, for example. I find the 720S designed by Rob Melville mesmerizingly beautiful, and we wanted to give the RM 11-03 McLaren curves that were similarly both aesthetic and functional,” says Namura.

These influences, as well as design cues borrowed from McLaren’s range of luxury sports and super cars, are reflected in this special timepiece.The case of the RM 11-03 McLaren is made of Carbon TPT interlaced with Orange Quartz TPT, resulting in an extremely resistant and light-weight case while paying tribute to a color that is synonymous with McLaren. The Carbon TPT enhances the mechanical performance of the RM 11-03 and offers resistance to harsh environments. The titanium pushers fitted to the Carbon TPT case echo the design of the distinctive headlights of the McLaren 720S. Titanium inserts, similar in shape to the iconic McLaren F1’s air-intake snorkel and bearing the McLaren logo, adorn the bezel. The complex grade 5 titanium crown is shaped like a McLaren lightweight wheel, while the McLaren Speedmark logo is incorporated on the rubber strap specifically developed for this edition.

Under the bonnet of the RM 11-03 beats the automatic RMAC3 calibre with a flyback chronograph ready to literally race on the track. The instant return of the counter to zero makes it possible to quickly restart the stopwatch function. Powered by two barrels mounted in parallel and a balance wheel with variable inertia, the movement has a 55-hour power reserve. Barrel winding is ensured by a variable-geometry rotor that enables personalized winding adjusted to the wearer’s activity level, further evidence of Richard Mille’s characteristic attentiveness. The fact that a race car’s chassis must always exhibit tremendous torque resistance while remaining light in weight inspired the brand, which adopted these requirements as its own in producing the baseplate and bridges for this calibre of PVD-treated grade 5 titanium to ensure the requisite stiffness and perfect functioning of the going train. The satin-finish grade 5 titanium upper bridge further accentuates the depth of the calibre, creating a visual trajectory around the annual calendar and oversized date as well as the 12-hour chronograph and countdown counters.

The fact that Richard Mille actually created a new baseplate and bridges for the RM 11-03 McLaren made from PVD-treated grade 5 titanium (all for improved gear train functionality) is super cool.

Those of you familiar with the RM11-02 Ceramic and RM11-02 NPTP will recognize the additional pusher at 9 o’clock (used for setting the second time zone) and at 2 and 5 for the chronograph stop/start and reset functions. Like all Richard Mille movements, the RMAC3 calibre is meticulously chamfered and polished by hand. The dial features an annual calendar and oversized date, as well as a 12-hour chronograph and countdown counters and yellow accents on the hour markers. If this is the start, it's hard to imagine where these two go next.
