After making the RM 036 Jean Todt, whose objective was to promote civic responsibility by encouraging drivers to adopt a more relaxed driving style, it seemed logical they should make a product designed for pure competitive racing.
Who other than Sébastien Loeb could have embodied the use of this extreme-racing watch? Limited edition of 30 pieces.
- Rotating bezel: TZP brown ceramic made of aluminium oxide powder tubes injected at a pressure of almost 2,000 bar. It is noted for being a particularly scratch resistant material (1,400 Vickers), possessing a stable color.
Brown ceramic requires a long and difficult machining and grinding process using special diamond tools
- Caseband: made from an extremely strong anthracite polymer injected with carbon nanotubes.
This combination produces a material that provides perfect protection for the movement and the tourbillon
- Caseback and fixed bezel: grade 5 titanium, a biocompatible, highly corrosion-resistant and remarkably rigid alloy.
It is composed of 90% titanium, 6% aluminium and 4% vanadium, a combination that further enhances the mechanical properties of the material
