The 8th edition of the Le Mans Classic will be held from July 8th to 10th, 2016. Founded in 2002 by Peter Auto and the Auto Club de l'Ouest, the event is held every two years and in just a few years has become the largest racing luxury car event with a worldwide collection. As the official watchmaking partner and timekeeper of the event, Richard Mille has been associated with this grand event from the very beginning, bringing the history of the 24 Hours of Le Mans to life and allowing you to re-enroll in the great 24 hours See the legendary racing hours loop.
Richard Mille celebrates each edition with a special collection based on one of its high-tech watches. This year, the manufacturer introduced the RM 11-02 Le Mans Classic, a titanium chronograph in race colors.
The RM 11-02 is the evolution of the famous brand's iconic model RM 011. It is identifiable by the third pusher at 9 o'clock and is used to set the second time zone, an additional feature added to the RMAC1 movement, which became the RMAC2. The design of this watch is based on the global treatment of movement, case and dial. The materials used come directly from Formula 1, and Richard Mille is also involved in the championship thanks to two partnerships signed with McLaren and Haas.replica watches for sale
The RM 11-02 Le Mans Classic Chronograph is decorated in the green and white of the event on the case and dial. As a sign of recognition for each edition celebrating the Le Mans Classic, the race logo - a checkered flag under the stylized British green Dunlop footbridge - adorns the dial at 12 o'clock. The tripartite tonneau case is the emblematic of the Richard Mille Pilot's Watch, consisting of a bezel and a white ATZ ceramic caseback secured in the middle of a carbon NTPT by 12 splined screws. These three parts (bezel, middle and back) require no less than 200 separate machining operations.
Motorsport reminders are everywhere, with the NTPT carbon fiber crown protected by a green rubber ring reminiscent of a clutch plate, three ribbed buttons reminiscent of racing pedals, and a splined screw in the shape of a fuel tank cap.replica watches online
The tricompax anti-reflective treated sapphire dial is also a nod to the racing car, with a green carbon fiber flange and a race-coloured date window. The chronograph functions are displayed on the hour and minute dials at 6 o'clock and 9 o'clock respectively, with the seconds indicated by the central hand. The hour accumulator is scaled on a 24-hour scale, and the red number 16 recalls the start of the 24 Hours of Le Mans. The counter at 9 o'clock uses a 60-minute dial instead of the traditional hand to read the elapsed and remaining minutes. The second time zone is shown by yellow and red hands with green arrows.
The self-winding movement RMAC2 is clearly visible under the dial and at the caseback, and is machined entirely from PVD-treated grade 5 titanium. It features a flyback chronograph (or "flyback", a mechanism that allows a new measurement to be restarted immediately without pressing the "stop" and "reset" buttons continuously), a countdown countdown and an annual calendar. An evolution of RMAC1, this engine also includes a "dual time zone" or second time zone capability. The two barrels ensure a comfortable 55 hours of autonomy, charged by a variable inertia rotor that, with its moving fins, optimizes the automatic winding according to the owner's activity.jacob & co astronomia SKY AT110.40.AA.WD.A
