Following the success of RM 011 special editions created exclusively for North and South America in 2009, Richard Mille introduces the first limited edition of 2010 for the hemisphere: RM 011 DLC Titanium ORANGE.
The new timepiece features the flyback chronograph functions that are essential to athletes and sports fans alike. Felipe Massa, private test driver for Richard Mille, Le Mans Classic and the Olympics have been sources of inspiration for previous models of the RM 011. This new limited edition, which is available at Richard Mille retail locations beginning this month, debuts in time for the start of another world class sporting event. When the 2010 World Cup commences in June, eight national teams from North and South America will be among the world’s 32 best soccer teams vying for the championship trophy.
Some of the RM 011’s main features, which include major technical innovations, are its skeletonized automatic winding movement with adjustable rotor geometry; 60-minute countdown timer; 12-hour totalizer; annual calendar; and oversize date and month. This limited edition’s vivid orange indicators, crown and inner bezel create an eye-catching effect against the deep black surroundings of the DLC titanium tripartite case.
The 30-piece limited edition embodies the historic synergy between timekeeping and sports, and Richard Mille’s commitment to precision performance.
