Richard Mille presents the new RM 30-01 with removable rotor The new Richard Mille RM 30-01 with removable rotor is the successor to the RM 030 and is available in two models.
Luxury watchmaker Richard Mille has announced the launch of the RM 30-01 self-winding watch with a removable rotor, the predecessor of the RM 030, with numerous updates and upgrades. This new masterpiece is a testimony to the brand's twenty-year history, combining ergonomics, pure lines, refined finishes and technical prowess.
The RM 30-01 is known for its patented removable rotor, a major innovation in watchmaking since traditional automatic watches use the rotor to wind the watch until it reaches optimum tension. Once this point has passed, overwinding can introduce harmful dirt into the case. system.
The special feature of the RM 30-01 is that it automatically disconnects the oscillating weight from the winding barrel once it is fully wound, thus preventing overwinding and ensuring the longevity of the watch mechanism. This automatic disconnect occurs between 40 and 55 hours of power reserve and features a coupling indicator that informs the user of the current phase of the rotor.
At the heart of the watch is the Caliber RMAR2, a skeletonized self-winding movement with several functions, including an oversized horizontal date display at 4 o'clock. In addition, the unique function selector at 2 o'clock is reminiscent of a car gearbox, allowing users to easily switch between winding, date and pointer functions.
In terms of workmanship and materials, the base plate and bridge plates are made of a mix of 90% grade 5 titanium, 6% aluminum and 4% vanadium to ensure the smooth operation of the gear train. Notably, this particular alloy is preferred by the aerospace and automotive industries for its light weight and durability.
The bodywork of the RM 30-01 embodies technical and design details inspired by Formula 1 racing cars, with chassis and engine in harmony. Cleverly mounted on chassis-mounted rubber and secured with grade 5 titanium screws, the watch showcases its signature tonneau-shaped case in a mix of satin-brushed, micro-blasted and polished titanium, weighing just 96 grams.
