Richard Mille - RM 67-02 Automatic

The latest creations from Richard Mille, the RM 67-02 Sprint and the RM 67-02 High Jump are the sporty versions of the RM 67-01 and will be on the wrists of the brand’s ambassadors Wayde van Niekerk and Mutaz Essa Barshim during the World Championships in Athletics at the Olympic stadium in London (August 4-13, 2017).


Olympic Gold medallist and world-record holder for the 300 and 400 metres, the pluridisciplinary athlete Wayde van Niekerk is the only sprinter to have run the 100 metres in under 10 seconds, the 200 metres in less than 20 seconds, the 300 metres in less than 31 seconds , and the 400 metres in under 44 seconds.

An Olympic medallist twice over, the native of Doha Mutaz Essa Barshim has turned in the four best performances worldwide in the last five years, becoming a serious candidate to become this discipline’s new record holder, twenty-four years after Javier Sotomayor.

Starting with the idea of lending a sporty feel to the RM 67-01, whose lightness, thinness and ergonomics made it a perfect candidate, the Richard Mille design team reworked its lines to highlight its athletic qualities.

The RM 67-01 introduced at the end of 2015 (we wrote about it here)

The incorporation of 4 extensions, in addition to being a hallmark of the brand’s sports watches, contributes to reinforcing the case structure.

The total bezel/caseband/caseback assembly has a slimness of the 7.8 mm making the watch really comfortable on the wrist.


The 38.70 x 47.52 x 7.80 mm case is crafted in Carbon TPT and Quartz TPT, composite materials exclusive to Richard Mille possessing exceptional shock resistance. To find more about these and other high-tech materials, you can read our article “Richard Mille’s quest for innovation: hi-tech materials”.


Quartz TPT is made of layers of silica filaments with a maximum diameter of 40 microns. These are assembled by a dedicated machine that modifies the fibres’ orientation by 45° at each layer, then impregnated with three newly developed coloured resins: crimson for the RM 67-02 High Jump associated with Mutaz Essa Barshim who comes from Qatari, and two—yellow and green—used in the 67-02 Sprint, for Wayde van Niekerk’s native South Africa.

The Carbon TPT employed for the caseband is produced according to the same process, but using carbon fibres.



The complete case construction is water-resistant to 30 metres / 100 feet thanks to two Nitril O-rings, and is assembled with 12 spline screws in grade 5 titanium and 316L stainless steel washers.

Beating at a frequency of 28,800 vph and offering approximately 50 hours of power reserve, the in-house manufactured self-winding CRMA7 Calibre is extra-flat and fully skeletonised with a rotor crafted from Carbon TPT and white gold.


Combined with the OneWay winding system which has ceramic ball bearings, the barrel can be efficiently wound while maintaining compact dimensions.


At least two hours of machining time are required to achieve the extreme skeletonisation of the baseplate and, of course, highly specialised machinery is needed.


Echoing the lines of the movement, the dial is machined from a sheet of titanium only four tenths of a millimetre thick. Treated with a black DLC coating, it is then painted by hand in the colours of each athlete’s flag.


The Richard Mille RM 67-02 is equipped with the new comfort strap first introduced for the RM 50-03 McLaren F1, the lightest mechanical chronograph ever made.


The total weight of the RM 67-02 is just 32 grams which makes this model the lightest automatic watch of the Richard Mille collection. The price for each of the two new models is Euro 134,000. richardmille.com
