Haute Time: Richard Mille Releases RM 032

Richard Mille, one of the world’s leading watch companies, had released their newest creation, the RM 032.

This automatic chronograph RM 032 diver’s watch offers a wide range of functions: hours, minutes, seconds, 60-minute countdown, 12-hour totalizer, and flyback chronograph functions, combined with an annual calendar sporting an oversized date at 12 o’clock and a month indicator. The digits for the date indicator are composed of two discs, with the digits cut out like positive stencils, offering great visual clarity combined with style. It also has a power reserve of 50 hours.

The RM032 boasts a water resistance of up to 300 meters and a unidirectional turning bezel following ISO 6425 norms that prevents miscalculations while diving. The bezel is assembled by three layers connected with 22 screws, attaching it to the watchcase, making it totally stable as well as impossible to dislocate or loosen. It also possesses a running indicator, that makes it possible to check the correct functioning of the running movement under stressful conditions. The running indicator disc is composed of successive Superluminova and black sectors, making it easy to read both during the day and at night. The caliber RMAC2, with 62 jewels and beating at 4Hz, has a free sprung balance with variable inertia. This type of balance wheel represents the ultimate in innovation. It guarantees greater reliability when subjected to shock and also during movement and assembly and disassembly.

The RM 032 is considered as one of the most difficult to manufacture in the world of horology. It is available in titanium, 18-karat white gold or red gold. Not only does it have great design, but it serves its purpose in function as well.
