Richard Mille debuts lightest automatic watch in new collection launch

Richard Mille has continued to grow its RM family of timepieces by marrying professional aesthetics with sporting capabilities.

The new RM 67-02, the 7th Richard Mille in-house calibre, weighs 32 grams, including its strap, making it the lightest automatic watch in the Richard Mille collection.

Richard Mille designed this model to adapt to various sporting disciplines; several of the brand’s partners wear an RM 67-02 in the colours of their respective countries, and test the abilities of this automatic calibre in a range of settings beyond the athletics track.

The first versions of the RM 67-02 were developed for South African sprinter Wayde Van Niekerk, and Qatari high-jumper Mutaz Essa Barshim.

The colourful CRMA7 calibre timepiece combines the grade five titanium of the baseplate and bridges with the white gold and Carbon TPT of the variable-geometry rotor.

Richard Mille has equipped its new collection with a new ‘comfort’ strap that is highly elastic, allowing it to fit the contours of each wrist.

In addition to these RM 67-02 editions in production, Richard Mille created two unique prototypes that are currently touring the Formula 1 circuits, worn by Charles Leclerc of Monaco and Fernando Alonso of Spain.
