Richard Mille RM 11-03 MCLAREN


High-tech materials, a supercharged engine, aerodynamic design – this new partnership hits the track and takes pole position for chronographs.

After an impressive RM 50-03 equipped with a calibre weighing just 7 grams, Richard Mille and McLaren have just unveiled the RM 11-03, the new fruit of their partnership, at the International Motor Show in Geneva! Like the brand’s most recent creations, the watch features high-tech materials from the world of motor racing. Here the orange TPT Quartz evokes the traditional colour of the UK team and is blended with TPT Carbon to form a zebra-style case that is both aesthetic and robust. Other elements take their inspiration from McLaren, too. The chronograph monopushers echo the design of the lights on the 720S supercar, while the crown is inspired by the shape of a car wheel.

This automatic skeletoned movement also powers a countdown counter at 9 o’clock, as well as the oversized date and the month displays, placed at 12 o’clock and 4.30, respectively. Featuring two barrels mounted in parallel, the calibre provides a power reserve of 55 hours.
