Introducing: Three Richard Mille Watches Celebrating The Motorsports Career Of Jean Todt
RM 11-03 Jean Todt 50th Anniversary
The RM 11-03 Jean Todt 50th Anniversary
The first and most generally accessible model (all things being comparative with RM), is a restricted release RM 11-03, a programmed flyback chronograph with twin barrels ensuring a 55-hour power save. Goodness, and it’s blue. Like, incredibly blue. The baseplate and extensions are made from grade five titanium, however the case for the Jean Todt 50th Anniversary version is TPT Quartz, a composite acquired by infusing a shaded sap into layers of silica. Richard Mille uncovered the restrictive material when he dispatched the RM 011 Red TPT Quartz Automatic, which, you got it, was red. The RM 11-03 has since supplanted the R 011, and this is the first run through the new case, which estimates 30.25 x 28.45mm, is made in TPT Quartz. This exceptional version is restricted to 150 pieces and it is estimated at $140,000.
RM 050 Jean Todt 50th Anniversary
The RM 050 Jean Todt 50th Anniversary
Next we have this exceptional RM 050 with a TPT Quartz case. By and by, it’s very blue – we’re told by Richard Mille that this is Jean Todt’s #1 tone, henceforth the decision. The RM 50 is a considerable amount greater than the RM 11-03, estimating 50mm x 42.70mm. It’s a split-seconds chronograph with a tourbillon, and by making a big deal about the development out of carbon nanofiber and titanium, in addition to all the skeletonization, the type comes in at simply 9.5 grams, keeping the watch extremely light. Just five pieces will be made and estimating has not yet been set.
RM 056 Jean Todt 50th Anniversary
The RM 056 Jean Todt 50th Anniversary
Last, yet positively not least, is another RM 056, controlled by a similar type RMCC1 as the RM 050 above. But the case is strong sapphire. This is Richard Mille’s third sapphire watch, keeping the arrival of the standard RM 056 and the RM 56-02 , and it’s the first run through a brand envoy’s name is connected to one. The watch is especially troublesome (also costly) to produce, as it requires as long as 40 days to machine the case, and an additional 20 days to make the extensions. For Jean Todt’s 50th Anniversary form, Richard Mille has added a scramble of blue to the elastic trim in the crown and the minutes track. This will be the best watch in the assortment, with just three pieces will be made. Valuing has not yet been set for this model either.
