Richard Mille RM Up-01 Ferrari

This is the world’s thinnest manual-wind watch, measuring 1.75mm in thickness.

By Roberta Naas

Truly a revolutionary watch, the newest Richard Mille Ultraflat watch — born of the partnership between the Swiss watch brand and Ferrari — has a 1970s vibe with a futuristic movement. The Richard Mille RM Up-01 Ferrari is the world’s thinnest manual-wind watch, measuring 1.75mm in thickness and shattering all previous ultra-thin records.

The movement is a stand-alone caliber, meaning that unlike other ultra-thin watches on the market, it does not utilize the caseback as a mainplate. It boasts an ultra-thin patented escapement and is devoid of a crown. The time is set via the wheels on the front-left side of the dial. Several years in the making, with 6,000 hours of research and development, it is crafted in titanium with two tiny sapphire crystals — one each protecting the time indication and the balance-wheel assembly. Just 150 pieces will ever be made.

$1.9m, available at Richard Mille in Chicago, +1 312 210 8888, richardmille.com
