Richard Mille - RM 11-03 McLaren Automatic Flyback Chronograph

After the partnership with McLaren F1, which produced the RM 50-03 last year, Richard Mille is now presenting the first timepiece developed in collaboration with McLaren Automotive, the RM 11-03 McLaren Automatic Flyback Chronograph.



Limited to just 500 pieces globally and priced at Swiss Francs 180,000 plus tax, the new watch will be made available initially mainly to McLaren Ultimate Series clients.

Created in close collaboration between McLaren Design Director Rob Melville and Richard Mille Engineer Fabrice Namura, the RM 11-03 McLaren, has been in development since McLaren Automotive and Richard Mille partnered last year uniting a mutual interest in unique design, the use of new materials and modern craftsmanship.

The result is an exceptional watch whose design brings to mind the lines of a supercar.



This is confirmed by the words of Namura: “The idea was to take on a real technical challenge, and come up with something other than a mere dial with an inscription, for example. I find the 720S designed by Rob Melville mesmerising beautiful, and we wanted to give the RM 11-03 McLaren curves that were similarly both aesthetic and functional”.


The 49.94 x 44.50 x 16.23 mm case of the RM 11-03 McLaren is made of Carbon TPT interlaced with Orange Quartz TPT, resulting in an extremely resistant and light-weight case while paying tribute to a colour that is synonymous with McLaren. The Carbon TPT enhances the mechanical performance of the RM 11-03 offering resistance to harsh environments.

The titanium pushers fitted to the Carbon TPT case echo the design of the headlights of the McLaren 720S. Titanium inserts, similar in shape to the iconic McLaren F1’s air-intake snorkel and bearing the McLaren logo, adorn the bezel.



The complex grade 5 titanium crown is shaped like a McLaren lightweight wheel. While the McLaren Speedmark logo is incorporated on the rubber strap specifically developed for this edition.

The RM 11-03 is powered by the 4 Hz (28,800 vph) automatic RMAC3 calibre, first launched in 2016, with a flyback chronograph whose instant return of the counter to zero makes it possible to quickly restart the stopwatch function.

Equipped with two barrels mounted in parallel and a balance wheel with variable inertia, the movement has a 55-hour power reserve. Barrel winding is ensured by a variable geometry rotor that enables personalised winding adjusted to the wearer’s activity level.



The baseplate and the bridges are crafted of grade 5 titanium, a biocompatible, highly corrosion-resistant and remarkably rigid alloy, which enables the gear train to function effortlessly. The alloy is 90% grade 5 titanium, 6% aluminium and 4% vanadium. This combination further increases the material’s mechanical properties, which explains its frequent use in the aerospace, aeronautical and automobile industries.

The satin-finish grade 5 titanium upper bridge further accentuates the depth of the calibre and visually connects the month display (between 4 and 5 o’clock) and oversized date (at 12 o’clock) as well as the 12-hour chronograph and countdown counters.


The RM 11-03 will be offered to McLaren Ultimate Series customers exclusively through Richard Mille Boutiques. McLaren customers will have the opportunity to match their edition number of 1 to 500 of their McLaren Ultimate Series to the caseback number of their RM 11-03 McLaren. richardmille.com
