AN UNCOMPROMISING CALIBRE
We have revisited the extraordinary movement of the legendary RM 012, reconciling innovations at the level of materials with a testament to horological architecture. Known as the RM 12-01 Tourbillon, this is an uncompromising calibre that reinterprets the art and methods of watch design in the 21st century.
Its unibody baseplate, in which the caseband and baseplate have been fused into a single piece, was inspired by the chassis of racing cars and enhances rigidity and resistance to impact. A major watchmaking and technological breakthrough, the unibody baseplate is a technical feat that requires in-depth knowledge and mastery of micro-machining new materials—knowledge Richard Mille has nurtured since the very beginning.
