The latest newcomer to the collection of Richard Mille self-winding models, the RM 67-01 features the first-ever combination of a tonneau-shaped case with an ultra-thin profile, since the watch measures just 7.75 mm thick. This harmoniously proportioned timepiece, designed to be worn by either a man or a woman, is all about transparency. Its skeleton-worked dial displays optimal legibility, while instilling an authentic architectural dimension and suggesting an impression of volume. To enhance this sense of depth, each hour-marker is first hollowed and then filled with Super LumiNova®, a first for the brand. As far as the movement is concerned, the model is equipped with the ultra-thin skeleton-worked CRMA6 caliber developed by the Richard Mille engineers in Les Breuleux specially for this new model. Its main characteristic is a high degree of skeleton-working, visible on the barrel, the rotor, the gear train and the bridges of the automatic winding mechanism, all elegantly crafted. With the RM 67-01, Richard Mille once again demonstrates a penchant for avoiding the easy path.
