Richard Mille Introduces RM 11-02 Dual Time Zone
TECHNICAL EVOLUTION OF THE RM 011
For those familiar with the original RM 011 case, this latest timepiece is easily recognizable by the additional pusher at 9 o'clock, used for setting the second time zone. This specially shaped and engraved pusher, as well as those placed at 2 and 5 o'clock for the chronograph start/stop and reset functions.
Flyback Chronograph RM 11-02
By using the pusher between 4 and 5 o'clock, the running chronograph can be reset without first having to stop the mechanism. This was originally developed for pilots in order to not waste time (and therefore accuracy) from stopping, resetting and starting the chronograph whilst crossing a navigational point. While the chronograph function is activated, the hours and minutes show up the elapsed time thanks to the counter at 6 and 9 o'clock, the seconds are indicated by the central hands.
Function: The user can start or stop the chronograph function via the pusher located between 1 and 2 o'clock. The fly-back function can be continuously reset by depressing
the pusher located between 4 and 5 o'clock.
This automatic caliber of the RM 11-02 is a technical evolution of the RM 011, with the original caliber RMAC1 superseded by the caliber RMAC2 with added features. In addition to the functions of the flyback chronograph, annual calendar with oversize date, 60-minute countdown timer and 24-hour totalizer, the RM 11-02 adds a UTC feature for the indication of a second time zone with a Super-Luminova filled hand.
