Richard Mille Unveils the RM 030 Americas Limited Edition

By Chris Boyle

RM030 Americas SM resizedFollowing the success of the RM 011, RM 016 and RM 028 limited editions – created exclusively for sale in North and South America – Richard Mille unveils the RM 030 Americas limited edition. 

The RM 030 Americas stands apart from all other models due to its bright orange upper flange, crown protector, and hands, complemented by white numerals and date aperture. The timepiece is encased in black carbon nanotube, and presented on a black rubber strap. 

Inside the case of the RM 030 beats the novel caliber RMAR1, which features a rotor that declutches automatically. With this system, the winding barrel is automatically disconnected from the rotor’s winding mechanism at the moment when the spring is fully wound.

Additionally, this new mechanism is linked to the power reserve indicator to provide optimal control. This allows both the movement and the oscillator to work with the best ratio of constant torque/power to provide the best chronometric performance. 

The RM 030 Americas is a limited edition of 30 pieces, available exclusively at Richard Mille boutiques and authorized Richard Mille retailers throughout North and South America.
