Richard Miller Rm 11-02 Automatic Movement Dual Time Zone Flyback Chronograph

The newly launched RM 11-02 continues the brand’s most popular RM 011 model for seven years, making the lineup even more prosperous. The RM 11-02 watch is equipped with the RMAC2 self-winding movement. Compared with the previous RMAC1 movement of the RM 011 watch, it has added many new features. With flyback timing function, large date display perpetual calendar, 60-minute countdown, 24-hour counter, etc., Universal Time (UTC) display, and equipped with Super-Luminova ultra bright luminous material hands. The bottom plate and bridge of the movement are made of grade 5 titanium alloy, equipped with a dual barrel device and a variable inertia balance wheel, which can provide a power reserve of 50 hours.

RM 11-02-SHANGHAI EDITION-HD (Shanghai version)

   The RM 11-02 watch is easy to operate. The button at 9 o’clock is used to set the second time zone function. The button has sculptural decoration and unique and delicate appearance. The buttons are reset to zero quickly, following the aesthetic concept of the RM 011 series, the dial layout is clear and easy to read, and the watch’s many complex functions are clear at a glance. The grade 5 titanium crown is reminiscent of a clutch, and the Alcryn washer equipped with the crown makes the feel More comfortable, thorough interpretation of the powerful posture and streamlined beauty of the car.

   Richard Mille’s unique three-piece (bezel, middle and bottom cover) barrel-shaped case requires 68 milling processes and multiple different procedures to complete. The detailed undulating curve is designed according to ergonomic principles, which fits the wrist completely when worn. Extremely comfortable. Before starting the watchmaking equipment, there are more than 300 independent processes, which involve many advanced technologies such as CNC 5-axis machines. The precision of processing or engraving and cutting can reach micrometers. Only by this can we meet Richard Mille’s pursuit of ultimate aesthetics. In addition, RM 11-02’s heart RMAC2 movement is fixed by 4 silicon connecting pieces to optimize the shock resistance performance. 20 spline screws and sealing layer can ensure the waterproof depth of RM 11-02 is up to 50 meters.

RICHARD MILLE RM 11-02 DUAL TIME ZONE Technical Features
RMAC2 movement: self-winding movement with hours, minutes and seconds at 3 o’clock, large date display,
Month display with seconds counter located in the center of the case, minute counter at 9 o’clock, flyback timing function of the countdown dial, and 24 at 6 o’clock
Hour counter, universal time (UTC) display and geometric variable dial.
Dimensions: 50.00 mm x 42.70 mm x 16.15 mm
Main features
Power reserve
About 50 hours (± 10%).
The actual duration of the power reserve depends on the continuous operating time of the chronograph.
Tier 5 titanium base plate and bridge plate
These parts are made of grade 5 titanium alloy with black PVD coating, which can realize
Excellent overall machine solidity and surface smoothness ensure perfect operation of gear transmission.
Flyback timing
By pressing the button between 4 and 5 o’clock, you can stop the machine without having to stop it in advance.
Zero the chronograph hands. The device was originally designed for pilots,
Designed to prevent pilots from stopping, zeroing and restarting the chronograph as they cross the waypoint
Wasting time (and losing precision).
When the chronograph function is activated, the hours and minutes can be displayed by the chronograph at 6 o’clock and 9 o’clock, respectively.
Seconds are indicated by the central hand.
Operation mode:
The wearer can start or stop the chronograph function with the button between 1 and 2 o’clock.
Press the button located between 4 and 5 o’clock to reset the flyback function repeatedly at any time you want.
The pointer at 9 o’clock is replaced by a hollow-out plate with a 60-minute scale. This cumulative timer can count the elapsed time,
It also reads the remaining time.
Universal Time (UTC) function
The RM 11-02 watch provides a second time zone display with a hand filled with Super-LumiNova. use
The key at 9 o’clock allows easy time adjustment.
Oversized date display
A horizontal window with a semi-instantaneous function is set below 12 o’clock, which can be automatically adjusted to 30 or 31 days per month.
Month display
With semi-instantaneous function, it is displayed by Arabic numerals between 4 and 5 o’clock.
Variable inertia balance
This balance wheel is a major technological innovation that can effectively improve the reliability of the watch when subjected to vibration, movement assembly, and disassembly.
And ensure the accuracy of the watch has long-term stability.
The spinner was removed. With 4 adjustable hammers,
The inertia of balance movement can be adjusted directly and more finely.
Variable geometry automatic disc
-Tier 2 Titanium Oscillating Arm
-Grade 5 titanium alloy frame
-6-speed position adjustment through 5 grade titanium alloy screws
-18K High Palladium Platinum Wings
-Small parts made of tungsten and cobalt alloys
-Ceramic Ball Bearing
-Anti-clockwise one-up chain
This automatic disc device is an exclusive design of Richard Mille, which is characterized by the ability to effectively adjust the automatic winding function according to the wearer’s exercise level (such as intenseness).
By selecting the adjustment wing position, you can change the level of inertial motion of the automatic disc. If the wearer’s arm movement slows down, the winding speed will increase.
For athletes, the winding speed slows down.
In this way, the winding mechanism of the movement can be personalized and optimally adjusted according to the wearer’s lifestyle.
Double barrel device
To improve long-term stability of torque. After the number of gear turns increases, the gear set,
Bearings and pivots experience less pressure and friction, and enhanced performance.
The movement uses 5 grade titanium alloy gold spline screws
Use this type of screw to better control the screw tightening torque during assembly.
In addition, these screws are not affected by the assembly and disassembly process at all, and they do not age.

The three components of the RM 11-02 case (bezel, middle and bottom cover) require a full 68 milling processes.
Among them, the processing and debugging of the bezel takes 8 days, while the middle and bottom cover each take 5 days.
Prior to this, a total of 120 hours of preparation time were required to coordinate the entire production process, and 130 hours were needed to deploy the kit.
And 180 hours to implement the entire plan. Each preliminary case requires 202 different machining processes.
Every step of the watch from conception to processing is based on the overall coordination of the movement, case and dial.
Therefore, we removed the packing ring and fixed the movement with 4 titanium screws and muffler blocks (ISO, SW).
The three-layer case of the RM 11-02 has a novel structure, and the polished button case adds a satin effect.
Two Nitril ring seals ensure that the case is water-resistant to 50 meters.
