Richard Mille just released three new versions of the lightest sports watch in their collection —the RM 67-02. These new editions have been created along with the brand's professional athlete partners. These sportsmen will now put the 67-02 through extreme field testing on the tennis court, Formula 1 circuit, rally course, ski slope as well as track and field. Please find details of the new editions below, and photos of the three newest production models attached. They are available at Richard Mille authorized retailers, including Richard Mille boutiques, worldwide.
Powered by the 7th Richard Mille in-house calibre, the Richard Mille RM 67-02 is the lightest automatic watch in the Richard Mille collection with a total weight of only 32 grams. Thin, lightweight, colorful, elegant and athletic, the RM 67-02 is the watch for any situation. Breaking with precedent, Richard Mille designed this model so that it can adapt to various sporting disciplines. This is why several of the brand’s partners wear an RM 67-02 in the colors of their respective countries, and test the abilities of this automatic calibre in a range of settings beyond the athletics track.
On the wrist of German tennis player Alexander Zverev, the RM 67-02 enters a new battlefield. Alexander, now ranked no. 3 in the world, tests the resistance of his RM 67-02 in Carbon TPT and red Quartz TPT when faced with repeated accelerations. The white Quartz TPT RM 67-02 issued to French skier and brand partner Alexis Pinturault must withstand the harsh cold of the slopes and the shocks received against the gates. Meanwhile, a black Carbon TPT variation designed for five-time World Rally Champion Sébastien Ogier, who also hails from France, will join him next along the varied stages of the Argentinian Rally.
The first versions of the RM 67-02 were developed for South African sprinter Wayde Van Niekerk, and Qatari high-jumper Mutaz Essa Barshim —you can read all about them here.
All of these models preserve the mechanical beauty of the CRMA7 calibre, combining the grade 5 titanium of the baseplate and bridges with the white gold and Carbon TPT of the variable-geometry rotor, as well as the exceptional finishes. Beyond the resistance of the case milled from TPT composites, these watches boast aesthetically polished renditions of each sports figure’s flag, easily visible across the hand-painted grade 5 titanium dial. For superlative wearing enjoyment of the RM 67-02, Richard Mille has equipped these timepieces with a new ‘comfort’ strap. Entirely seamless, the strap is highly elastic, allowing it to perfectly fit the contours of each wrist, adapting to individual morphology.
In addition to these RM 67-02 editions in production, Richard Mille created two unique prototypes that are currently touring the Formula 1 circuits. Worn by rookie Charles Leclerc of Monaco and Fernando Alonso of Spain (see below), both pilots allow the brand to test new technical solutions for future models.
