For the RICHARD MILLE family, the addition of Casiraghi is an excellent opportunity to test the RM 60-01 Regatta flyback chronograph, and confirm that it can perfectly adapt to natural marine conditions and the severe environmental impact caused by seawater corrosion. Speaking of his watch, Casiraghi said: ‘I like its construction, besides that, it is the first mechanical watch I have seen with both a moving and orienting compass. Moving and orienting compasses are two important Navigation tools. ‘So he sailed with this self-winding flyback chronograph, which is just a luxury watch made for sailing.
RM 60-01 Regatta Flyback Chronograph is the brand’s first marine-specific technical watch, featuring four azimuth basis points displayed by a rotatable bezel, plus 360 ° and 24-hour dial, making the watch meet the maritime identification position And the need for time
The RM 60-01 Regatta Flyback Chronograph is a self-winding chronograph. This is RICHARD MILLE’s first marine technology watch. The watch is equipped with a grade 5 titanium alloy RMAC2 movement, a 55-hour power reserve, a variable inertia balance wheel, a flyback chronograph function, an oversized date display, UTC function and an annual calendar function. In addition, the RM 60-01 can meet the needs of navigation through the four azimuth basis points displayed by the specially made rotatable bezel, plus 360 ° and 24-hour dial.
By adjusting the position of the ribs, you can change the inertial movement of the automatic disc, and speed up or slow down the winding speed according to the different rhythms of the body. In this way, the winding mechanism of the movement can be personalized and optimally adjusted according to the wearer’s lifestyle
The operating principle of the RM 60-01 is based on the following two points: local time and sun position. In order to calculate the exact position, the UTC display needs to be aligned with the sun position and press the UTC handle at 9 o’clock. The bezel will rotate until the UTC indicator matches the local time shown on the bezel scale. At this time, the northeast-south direction of the bezel will coincide with the orientation of the ground surface.
The RM 60-01 is capable of pointing in both the northern and southern hemispheres. This operation does not require any calculations, which makes it unique among similar watches.
The RM 60-01 differs from similar watches in that it has the ability to point in both the northern and southern hemispheres. This operation does not require any calculations. As an additional security measure, this chronograph has a ‘lock crown’ as a quick lock and unlock mechanism for push buttons. When the chronograph is locked (red arrow is displayed) or unlocked (green arrow is displayed), only the outer ring needs to be rotated quickly to easily prevent the chronograph reading from being changed unintentionally.
