Luxury watch titan Richard Mille has unveiled its latest creation, the RM 30-01 Automatic Winding with Declutchable Rotor. A sophisticated successor to the RM 030, this timepiece encapsulates the brand’s 20-year legacy, melding ergonomics, sleek design, superior finishing, and technological mastery.
What sets the RM 30-01 apart is its pioneering declutchable rotor. Traditional automatic watches pose a risk of overwinding beyond optimal tension. However, this timepiece is engineered to automatically disconnect the rotor from its winding barrel once fully wound, thus eliminating overwinding threats and preserving the watch’s lifespan. Users stay informed of the rotor phase thanks to a clutch engagement indicator, with automatic declutching activating between 40-55 hours of power reserve.
At the watch’s core lies the Calibre RMAR2, showcasing a skeletonized automatic-winding movement with standout features such as a prominently placed date display and a unique function selector, echoing the aesthetics of a car’s gearbox, at 2 o’clock.
In terms of materials and craftsmanship, the baseplate and bridges blend 90% grade 5 titanium, 6% aluminum, and 4% vanadium, ensuring optimal operation. This aerospace-favored alloy provides lightweight strength. Drawing cues from Formula 1 cars, the RM 30-01’s design brilliantly integrates the chassis and engine. Encased in a blend of satin-finished, microblasted, and polished titanium, the watch is a featherlight 96 grams.
Two variants are available: the Red Gold case is priced at $253,000 USD, while its Titanium counterpart retails for $208,000 USD. Both are available through Richard Mille’s official portal and selected retailers.
