Thin and light, the Richard Mille RM 67-02 was designed with versatility and adaptability in mind. Recently unveiled, RM 67-02 is not only extremely lightweight, it is also astoundingly versatile, a characteristic the horloger strived toward in order to offer a hallmark timepiece to its many brand friends and ambassadors in the world of sports.
Thanks to the in-house development of an automatic calibre able to handle any situation and stress, the luxury Swiss brand was successful in adapting this watch to various sporting disciplines.
Powered by the mechanical CRMA7 calibre, the watch, which comes in three versions, boasts exceptional resistance thanks to its white gold and Carbon TPT® rotor as well as the TPT®-composite case (composite materials exclusive to Richard Mille and possessing exceptional shock resistance). Each variation comes with a hand-painted, grade-5 titanium dial that exhibits the national flags of some of Richard Mille’s partners, including Qatari high-jumper, Mutaz Essa Barshim and South African sprinter, Wayde Van Niekerk, who were the first to don an RM 67-02.
French skier, Alexis Pinturault now possesses a white Quartz TPT®-encased RM 67-02, equipped to brace the chills on the slopes. A carbon model rests on the wrists of Sebastien Ogier, the five-time World Rally champion and Pinturault’s compatriot. German tennis player, Alexander Zverev also owns a new RM 67-02 in Carbon TPT® and red Quartz TPT®.
The 38.70 mm x 47.52 mm cases of the new RM 67-02 models are characterized by four extensions which, in addition to being a hallmark of the brand’s sports watches, contribute to reinforcing the case structure. The total bezel/caseband/caseback assembly has a slimness of the 7.8 mm making the watch really comfortable on the wrist. The complete case construction is water-resistant to 30 metres / 100 feet thanks to two Nitril O-rings, and is assembled with 12 spline screws in grade 5 titanium and 316L stainless steel washers.
The total weight of the RM 67-02 is just 32 grams which makes this model the lightest automatic watch of the Richard Mille collection.
