Richard Mille - RM 11-02 Le Mans Classic

| No comment
The Le Mans Classic is a biennial vintage sports car event held on the grounds of the 24 Hours of Le Mans. The event consists of a series of races for cars which have competed at the 24 Hours of Le Mans or for similar cars of the same model. Car shows and auctions are also hosted on the Bugatti Circuit grounds, with various car clubs meeting to show off machinery. The 2014 edition attracted over 110,000 visitors and brought together 60 carmakers represented by 160 automobile clubs for a total of 8,000 cars.

The 8th edition of the event will take place July 8th through 10th under the colours of Richard Mille, principal partner and official timekeeper for the competition.

Richard Mille celebrates the Le Mans Classic by creating a new watch for each edition of the race. This year, the brand just unveiled the RM 11-02 Le Mans Classic, an automatic calibre in grade 5 titanium incorporating a variable-geometry rotor, an oversize date display at 12 o’clock with automatic adjustments for months of 30 and 31 days (annual calendar), UTC display at 4:30, a flyback chronograph with 24-hour and 60-minute counters at 6 o’clock and 3 o’clock respectively, and a countdown function at 9 o’clock.

The RM 11-02 Le Mans Classic bears the colours of the historic competition not only on the movement, but also on its white ATZ ceramic caseband and the rubber collar of its NTPT carbon crown. Size is 50 mm x 42.70 mm x 16.15 mm.

Several details evoke the world of racing cars: the groove of the pushers recalling the surface of vintage pedals, the precision-machined crown reminiscent of a clutch mechanism by way of its baseplate, ribbed like an engine crankcase, and of course the Le Mans Classic logo appearing on the dial at 12 o’clock along with the number "16", an allusion to the start time of the endurance race.

The Richard Mille RM 11-02 Le Mans Classic is a limited edition of 150 pieces with a price of Euro 186,000.
