Richard Mille - RM 022 Aerodyne Dual Time Zone Tourbillon Asia Edition

| No comment
Originally created by Richard Mille with an external structure in titanium and carbon nanofibres, the RM 022 Aerodyne Dual Time Zone Tourbillon will also be available in a special version featuring an NTPT carbon and red gold case.

Premiered at Watches & Wonders 2015 in Hong Kong, the RM 022 Aerodyne Dual Time Zone Tourbillon Asia Edition is a limited edition of just 8 pieces that will be available only at Richard Mille boutiques in Shanghai, Hong Kong, Macau, Jakarta, Kuala Lumpur and Singapore.


Designed for frequent travellers, the exclusive watch combines a large tourbillon at 6 o'clock with a second time zone, displayed at 3 o'clock, which can be easily set by using a push button on the left side of the caseband. Particularly comfortable on the wrist, the watch measures 48 mm x 39.7 mm x 13.8 mm.


The bezel and back of the case are made of NTPT carbon, an ultra-lightweight and highly resistant form of carbon fibre that has been used on the sails of racing yachts, Formula 1 car chassis and in aeronautics. The surface of NTPT carbon displays extremely regular undulations, as this material is composed of multiple layers of parallel filaments obtained by dividing carbon fibers. These layers are then impregnated with resin and woven on a special machine that will produce a high quality wood appearance. NTPT stands for North Thin Ply Technology, the name of the Swiss company who developed this technology.

The caseband, the hands and the chapter ring are made of warm-toned red gold which well combines with the black tones of the NTPT carbon material.

The dial includes a power reserve indicator at 11 o'clock and, symmetrically positioned at 1 o'clock, a torque indicator which provides a visualisation of the mainspring internal tension which should be kept between 53 and 65 dNmm (deciNewton per millimeter).


The small hand at 4 o'clock shows which function is selected. Selection is performed  by pressing the button on the crown: W for winding, H for setting the time or N for the neutral position.

The Richard Mille RM 022 Aerodyne Dual Time Zone Tourbillon Asia Edition is driven by a Swiss in-house hand-wound movement beating at 21,600 vph and offering a power reserve of 70 hours. The movement is produced in collaboration with Audemars Piguet Renaud et Papi (APR&P).
