The RM 50-03 McLaren F1 weighs less than 40 grams – including the new “comfort” strap – which makes it the lightest mechanical chronograph ever made. This landmark has been achieved through the use of cutting-edge technical materials. The design not only incorporates Titanium and Carbon TPT, but also introduces an entirely new material into the world of watchmaking: Graph TPT, more commonly known as Graphene.
A chronographic perfection brought to life: it combines a tourbillon escapement with a split second function. In order to perform without fail, the combination of these two complications within a single mechanism demands perfect transfers of energy. A technical masterpiece offering exceptional mechanical performance.
Produced in a numbered limited edition of 75 pieces available only at Richard Milles boutiques.
“The RM 50-03 represents a new approach to the challenges of lightness underlying our watchmaking philosophy.” Richard Mille
