Luxe Watches recently had the opportunity to get hands on with the new RM 67-02 styled on Sebastien Ogier in carbon TPT and red, blue and white hues.
The watch epitomises Richard Mille as a brand – designed with versatility and adaptability. Each of the new RM 67-02 collection adapts in to their respective fields. In this instance, the Sebastien Ogier RM 67-02 fits in to the world of Rally-Car racing by being ultra lightweight and super thin.
With thanks to the in-house developed automatic caliber movement, the model is able to handle any situation and stress, successfully adapting to sports including, racing, tennis, athletics and extreme skiing.
One thing that really stands out with this watch is the fact that it is so incredibly light whilst in your hands and on the wrist. It is truly something to behold. Including the elastic strap, the watch weighs a miniscule 32 grams.
It is the combination of the size, case material and movement that creates a uniquely lightweight watch. The watch measures in at 38.7mm in diameter, with a thickness of just 7.8mm. The watchcase, made up of the front bezel and case back, is made from the signature Richard Mille Quartz TPT, whilst the case band between front bezel and baseplate is made from Carbon TPT.
Richard Mille are no strangers when it comes to creating lightweight watches. In the entire collection of Richard Mille watches, the RM 027-01 Nadal is the lightest of them all and weighs in total a mere 19 grams including strap. The RM 27-01 was effectively adapted to Rafa Nadals‘ game, effectively being as light as possible and being able to withstand an incredible amount of G-Force. This is done through the use of lightweight Carbon and a movement held in total suspension in its case using a system of pulleys and winches.
The RM 067-02 is equipped with the in-house developed CRMA7 automatic calibre movement made from grade 5 titanium and a combination of carbon TPT and 18k white gold applied bridges, and carbon TPT for the variable-geometry rotor.
