Richard Mille RM 11-01 Auto Flyback Chrono Titanium Roberto Mancini
My Price $140,000.00
Roberto Mancini is a master of football technique as well as being a subtle, highly creative strategist, an elegant man who is well known and recognized for his talent. He was looking for an ultra-technical instrument that could assist him not only during matches, but especially during extra time.
When Roberto confided to me that he lacked certain vital information at crucial moments in some of the most hotly contested matches, such as the exact number of minutes remaining during stoppage time, I knew what to do…
We designed a watch specifically featuring a direct countdown display of the time remaining during this particular stage of the game. It is a technical feat used in mechanical application to help guide strategy.
The case was the subject of an entire year of research and development.
With regard to the production of each case, 68 different stamping operations are required for the three main components (bezel, caseband and case back). The machine tooling process requires 8 days of adjusting the machines for the bezel, 5 days for the caseband and 5 days for the case back. Prior to this process, developing a methodology for carrying out this series of operations took 120 hours, the drawings for the tools 130 hours, and implemention 180 hours. Each rough case involves 202 separate machining operations.
The design and execution of the watch demonstrates a complete conceptual approach to the movement, case and dial.
As a result, everything has been constructed according to an extremely rigorous specification, in the manner of the analytical engineering methods used in the design of Formula 1 racing cars where the chassis and the engine are developed in complete harmony.
The case is assembled with 20 spline screws in grade 5 titanium and abrasion resistant washers in 316L stainless steel.
Variable inertia, free sprung balance
This type of balance wheel represents the ultimate in innovation. It guarantees greater reliability when subjected to shock and also during movement assembly and disassembly, hence better chronometric results over time. The regulator index is eliminated and a more accurate and repeatable adjustment is possible thanks to 4 small adjustable weights located directly on the balance.
Double barrel system
The double barrel system helps to improve the torque stability over a longer period.
This is achieved by dividing the stored energy within two winding barrels instead of one, thereby reducing pressure and friction on the teeth, the bearings and the pivots, resulting in improved long-term performance.
