— The new RM 07-01 Ladies represents the mechanical synthesis between Haute Horlogerie elegance and the ‘tough love’ provided by its new Replica Watches materials.
The heart of this new timepiece centers on the novel, in house designed caliber CRMA2, a highly skeletonised automatic movement developed specifically for the RM 07-01. With baseplate and bridges machined from grade 5 titanium, the CRMA2 also includes a variable-inertia balance in order to maintain exacting long-term performance, and a rotor in 5N 18K red gold with variable geometry in order be able to adapt the rotational speed of the rotor according to the owner activity, thus optimizing the winding of the barrel’s high rotation. Its new, RM patented crown construction replaces the traditional system; now no longer connected to the interior of the movement directly, it is thus impossible to dislodge or break, providing extra protection for the rigors of daily life.
This timekeeping architecture gives the RM 07-01 a power reserve of about 50 hours, a significant accomplishment for a ladies’ movement.
The beauty of the technical mastery within the RM 07-01 can be seen throughout the skeletonised movement with its balance placed at 6 o’clock, highlighting the care given to the high grade finishing of the movement with its drawn, chamfered and polished surfaces combined with a dramatic, deep black PVD treatment of the plate and bridges.
The RM 07-01 also shines with the sensual and curvaceous lines of its tonneau shaped case design and its dial with a gemstone set center field. Together with water droplet shaped indexes, these elements contrast in an elegant way with the lines of the movement.
A first for the Richard Mille ladies’ collection, the tripartite case of the RM 07-01 is available in a choice of white ATZ ceramic, or warm brown TZP ceramic – both with a red gold caseband, providing beautiful visual contrast as well as an extremely high level of scratch protection – in addition to versions in full 18K red or white gold. With dimensions of 45.66 x 31.40 x 11.85 mm, the RM 07-01 is the perfect size for any occasion.
