Inspired by the extraordinary sailing vessels of the yacht builders Perini Navi of Viareggio, Italy, the RM 014-1 echoes the visual elements and nautical details found on those famous craft. The shapes of the crown and the case outlines, the tourbillon and winding barrel bridges, the titanium screws of the case and movement, as well as many other elements are directly inspired by details found on the ocean going vessels created by Perini Navi. The RM 014-1 marks an exceptional premiere of oceanic themes within the collection of Richard Mille
The RM014 particularly characterizes itself with a platinum carbon monolithic, a central bridge in rigidified ARCAP, a fast rotating barrel and a variable inertia free sprung balance. The
function selector, equally similar to a car's gearbox, enables one to select the desired function (winding, neutral, hand setting) with a push-button located at the centre of the crown. The position of each function is displayed with a needle at 4 o'clock. Otherwise, this new nautical model is provided with a wheel based time setting system, at the back of the movement. This system provides smooth time setting functions through the elimination of engaging friction by replacing it with rolling friction.
Torque Indicator (Shown between 2 and 4 o'clock) - Shows the mainspring tension and enables the movement timing to be optimized.
Variable Inertia - Free Sprung Balance: The free-sprung balance gives better reliability in the event of shocks, Allows for efficient movement assembly and disassembly, also guarantees better chronometric results over an extended period of time.
Wheel Based Time Setting System - Back of the Movement: Provides smooth time setting functions through the elimination of engaging friction by replacing it with rolling friction
Function Selector- A push-button located at the center of the crown allows one to select the winding, Neutral and hand setting functions with a simple push. A hand near 4 o'clock displays the selected functions: C-Winding, N-Neutral, L-Hand setting.
