In 2007, Richard Mille released a new watch developed in collaboration with Felipe Massa. The RM 011, named after the eponymous F1 driver, takes its cues from the high-tech precision engineering of F1 racing cars developed to deliver exceptional performance on the track.
The RM 011 crystallises the inspirational foundation of the Richard Mille brand: race cars. Light, thanks to its titanium movement affixed to a superstiff case with silent-blocks, the watch has aerodynamic pushers machined with non-slip ribbing.
The crown resembles a smooth tyre encircling a spoked wheel rim.
Lastly, Richard Mille is all about meticulous technical exploration of materials. The RM 011 was available in titanium, gold and all of the brand’s proprietary materials: ceramic, carbon TPT®, silicon nitride and Red Quartz TPT® , which have lent their properties to a long line of limited-edition timepieces created with Philippe Starck, Le Mans Classic, Lotus F1 Team… and with the driver that inspired the RM 011, Felipe Massa.
