Richard Mille unveil RM 72-01 with in-house chronograph
Richard Mille just unveiled the RM 72-01, with what it’s calling a Lifestyle In-House Chronograph.
The new watch was unveiled with help from choreographer Benjamin Millepied and composter Thomas Roussel, in a new campaign film WITHIN.
The dynamic duo used the connection between the acceleration and repetitive motion of watch faces, as well as the natural rhythms of dance and music. Richard Mille adopted this to create a new hybrid watch, where art meets technology.
The RM 72-01 is actually the first watch to come with a flyback chronograph, a movement that is entirely produced in-house.
As per Richard Mille, the new watch was crafted out of some truly advanced materials, with a radical design. It was machined out of grade 5 titanium.
The skeletonized CRMC1 movement comes with a bidirectional automatic winding feature with hours, minutes, small seconds, date, flyback chronograph and a function indicator.
