Richard Mille and McLaren Automotive have collaborated on another limited edition watch designed for the car maker’s multi-millionaire customers.

The RM 11-03 McLaren Automatic Flyback Chronograph was unveiled at the Geneva International Motor Show during a reception hosted by McLaren Automotive CEO, Mike Flewitt and Mr Richard Mille, CEO of Richard Mille.

The carbon fiber and orange quartz piece houses the RMAC3 calibre, a skeletonized movement with a variable geometry rotor.

The movement allows for the hours, minutes and seconds on a central dial, as well as a flyback chronograph function, a 60-minute timer subdial at the 9 o’clock, a 12-hour totalizer and an oversized date and month indicator.

As usual with a Mille, the piece is very durable, with bridges and baseplate of its calibre to be made out of titanium, as well as titanium pushers for the chronograph functions and a titanium crown.

The watch comes with an orange rubber strap and a price tag of $191,500, however if you want to be first in line to pick up the piece from a Mille boutique, you have to be a McLaren Ultimate Series customer, a title only granted if you drop $1.5 million on a hypercar.

Only 500 are being made.
