One more time we are presenting you live pictures of another fantastic Richard Mille watch. This time, we decided to dust off our macro lens and take some very close and personal shots of the Richard Mille RM011 Felipe Massa Carbon. A watch that is already quite amazing, but even more fascinating under the macro lens.
As you can see in these pictures, the attention to detail in every component and part of this watch is just remarkable. Looking at this watch is mesmerizing and thinking about the amount of work that went into it from beginning to completion is unfathomable.
The 50 mm ultra-light carbon composite case —weighing only 90 grams— has a very unique finish that can only be fully appreciated under a jeweler's loupe or a macroscopic camera lens. The open-worked dial, the movement, the hands and every single component in this watch is definitely product of the love for watchmaking. This level of perfection, can only be attained by the finest 'Haute Horlogerie' brands and Richard Mille is definitely one of them.
Now, enjoy the watch eye-candy!
The calibre inside this timepiece is the automatic RM011-S fly-back chronograph movement with centrally mounted hands for the minutes and seconds and hours/minutes chrono-register at 6 o'clock. The month is indicated between the 4 and 5 o'clock markers and the date indicator is located above the central pinion towards the 12 o'clock marker.
The calibre comes with adjustable rotor geometry and a power-reserve of approximately 55 hours. According to Richard Mille, the exclusive design of the calibre allows the rewinding of the mainspring to adapt to the user’s activity level. By adjusting the setting of the rib’s placement, the rotor’s inertia is modified to either speed up the winding process in the case of leisurely arm movements, or slow it down when sporting activities are performed. As a result, this invention allows the movement’s winding mechanism to be optimized and personalized to the owner’s lifestyle.
