TECHNICAL SPECIFICATIONS OF THE RICHARD MILLE AUTOMATIC RM 016 CALIBER RM 005-S
Skeletonized automatic winding movement with hours, minutes, date and adjustable rotor geometry. Dimensions: Length 49.80 mm x 38.00 mm (widest point) x 8.25 mm (thickest area) MAIN FEATURES (MANY OF WHICH ARE MAJOR TECHNICAL INNOVATIONS) ROTOR WITH VARIABLE GEOMETRY Arm in grade 2 titanium Flange in grade 2 titanium 6-positional adjustment via grade 5 titanium screws Wings in 18-carat, high palladium content white gold Weight segment in tungsten/cobalt alloy Ceramic ball bearings Unidirectional; anti-clockwise winding direction

This exclusive RICHARD MILLE design allows the rewinding of the mainspring to be adapted most effectively to the user’s activity level whether it be sporting or non-sporting environments. By adjusting the setting of the wings’ placement, the rotor’s inertia is modified either speeding up the winding process in the case of minimal arm and hand movements, or slowing it down when high activity sports are pursued.

As a result, this invention allows the movement’s winding mechanism to be optimized and personalized to the owner’s lifestyle. POWER RESERVE: Circa 55 hours.

WATCHCASE The watchcase represents the first entrance of new shape with its own particular identity into the Richard Mille Watches collection. It is a counterpoint to the existing collection’s themes of motor sport and sailing, reflected in its discreet lines that are the thinnest in the collection, yet with the same wrist fitting curvature and taper as the rest of the ensemble it represents a further transformation of the tonneau shape suitable for all occasions.

It still retains the same characteristics and attention to detail of case design with a vast number of stamping and machining operations required for the three main components (bezel, middle section and case back). More than 18 days of machine adjustment are required and more than 400 hours of technical research and drawing before production even can start. Each case involves 202 separate machining operations.

The design and execution of this watchcase typifies the complete conceptual approach to all parts of the movement, case and dial. As a result, everything has been constructed according to an extremely rigorous specification. For example, a casing ring is no longer used and the movement is mounted on chassis mounting rubbers (ISO SW) fixed by 4 titanium screws. Features such as these are evidence of uncompromising workmanship. The tripartite case is water resistant to 30 meters, ensured by three Nitril O-ring seals. The case is assembled with 8 spline screws in grade 5 titanium and abrasion resistant washers in copper-nickel-zinc alloy.
