Richard Mille Dazzles with RM 67-02 Mutaz Essa Barshim & Wayde van Niekerk

On wrists of Wayde van Niekerk and Mutaz Essa Barshim during the World Championships in Athletics at the Olympic stadium in London, the public will have an opportunity to discover the new creations from Richard Mille, the RM 67-02 Sprint and the RM 67-02 High Jump, both sports versions of the RM 67-01.

Weighing only 32 grams, elastic brand included, this makes the RM 67-02 the lightest automatic watch of the Richard Mille collection.

The desire to create a watch that was so uniquely adapted it was practically a second skin for the athlete, permitting a sort of ‘symbiosis’ with him was the guiding ambition that propelled this new development.

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 teams reworked its lines to highlight its athletic qualities.

The tight, taut lines of the rotor, crafted of Carbon TPT® and white gold, the bridges and the DLC- coated grade 5 titanium baseplate of the new in-house extra flat CRMA7 calibre sharply underscore the sporty quality of this timepiece.

The at least two hours of machining time required to achieve such extreme skeletonisation of the baseplate are themselves made possible by hundreds of hours devoted to programming and adjusting specialised machinery.
