Richard Mille Introduces the RM 011 Automatic Flyback Chronograph “Black Phantom”

By Zahra Al-Kateb

Richard Mille combines two new high-tech materials in the deepest shade of black to encase a new limited edition of the RM 011 Automatic Flyback Chronograph: the Black Phantom.

Black TZP ceramic is extremely resistant to scratches while not being brittle. In the Black Phantom, the material is blasted to give it a matte finish, and then used to form the front and back bezels of the timepiece’s tripartite case.

The center caseband of the Black Phantom is crafted from NTPT® (North Thin Ply Technology) carbon. Already used in the fields of aerospace technology, the manufacture of racing sales, and Formula 1 racecar design, NTPT carbon is incredibly strong and light, and composed of multiple layers of parallel filaments obtained by dividing carbon fibers. These thin layers are impregnated with resin and then woven on a special machine that modifies the direction of the weft, creating a distinctive visual effect that is reminiscent of precious wood. In addition to the center caseband, the Black Phantom’s crown and pushers are also made from NTPT carbon.

The hour indicators, counters, hands and flange pair dark black elements with touches of white for ideal legibility. The Black Phantom is presented on a black rubber strap with black DLC titanium buckle.

Some of the RM 011’s main features, which include major technical innovations, are its skeletonized automatic winding movement with adjustable rotor geometry; 60-minute countdown timer; 12-hour totalizer; annual calendar; and oversize date and month.

The 50-piece limited edition is available now at Richard Mille Beverly Hills, Richard Mille Las Vegas, and authorized Richard Mille retailers in North and South America.
