Richard Mille Introduces RM10 Titanium Black Skeleton

Sep 21, 2009
The horological company Richard Mille has earned its fame by manufacturing high-end, luxury sports timepieces, inspired by F1 competitions. Thus, the novel RM10 Titanium Black Skeleton watch, representing a combination of sporty style and the most recent accomplishments in the watch-making industry, reflects the traditional character of Richard Milles watches.

The RM10 watch is animated by the self-winding in-house made movement. It was manufactured and assembled at the famous AP Renaud and Papi factory, located in Le Locle.

The components of the transparent movement feature PVD-treatment, which considerably contributes to the watch visual attraction. The case exterior demonstrates a sporty high-tech black Diamond Like Carbon (DLC) coating. Alluring in its appearance, this treatment also ensures avoiding the risk of scratching.

Manufactured from hand-ground grade 2 titanium, the bottom plate, balance cock and bridges are wet sandblasted and Physical Vapor Deposition (PVD) coated in order to create a perfect black finish, which enhances the beauty of this sportive watch.

The usage of high grade 2 titanium and PVD-treatment also provides the movement with a necessary level of durability and a surface flatness, which are vital for the impeccable functionality of the gear train.

The DLC and PVD treatments, employed in the manufacture of both the case and the movement, are an eloquent demonstration of the technology being applied for creating an attractive form and contributing to peerless performance.

The RM005-S Calibre movement features a balance wheel, which beats at the rate of 28,800 vibrations per hour. The watch case measures the dimensions of 48 mm x 39.30 mm x 13.84 mm.

The watch case is assembled with a 1.20 mm sapphire crystal, exposing an anti-reflective coating on both sides.

The timekeeper provides a 55-hour power reserve. Its water-resistance is down to 100 meters.

Fitting this model is a black rubber strap.
