A REAL PASSION FOR TRAVELING BEAUTIFULLY
When designing the earlier RM 58-01, Richard Mille’s goal was to simplify the use of the worldtimer complication as much as possible, notably by removing the need for a pusher in activating the time zone function. The RM 63-02 World Timer revisits this exercise, incorporating the World Timer function at the heart of an automatic in-house movement.
RM 63-02 AUTOMATIC WORLDTIMER
MULTIPLE TIME ZONE ADJUSTMENT MECHANISM
The rotating bezel in satin-brushed and polished grade-5 titanium is one of the masterpieces of the RM 63-02. Mounted on ball bearings for easy manipulation, it can be turned to select the desired time zone. When the name of the wearer’s current city is positioned at 12 o’clock, the RM 63-02 automatically defines the local time as well as the time in 23 other cities around the world thanks to its graduated 24-hour flange. This blue and white disk distinguishes night-time and daytime hours, automatically incorporating the correction hour by hour.
The bidirectional bezel interacts directly with the heart of the movement, and ensures the water-resistance of the case—which is crafted of vertically satin-brushed and polished grade-5 titanium—to 30 metres.
OVERSIZE DATE DISPLAY
Semi-instantaneous, horizontally placed below 12 o’clock.
A pusher located at 4 o’clock allows one to select the neutral, winding and hand-setting functions with a simple press, in a manner similar to a car’s gearbox.
An aperture located at 4 o’clock shows the function selected: N (Neutral) - W (Winding) - H (Hand Setting).
