Richard Mille Debuts Rm011 Felipe Massa Ti Black Grand Prix Brazil Special Edition

By Pardhasaradhi Gonuguntla

To commemorate his dear friend Ferrari F1 driver Felipe Massa, who miraculously survived a terrible car accident this year, Richard Mille creates a special 10 piece collection for Massa’s home country of Brazil.

Richard Mille calls this latest invention timepiece his RM011 Felipe Massa Titanium Black DLC Grand Prix Brazil. With one look at the watch, one can clearly see why. The watch encapsulates the great Brazilian spirit with its palette of vibrant Brazilian yellow and green colors surrounding the watch. From the Brazilian yellow which is prominent both on its rubber crown, and its carbon fiber flange which around the dial is colored in yellow, as well as the application of a green superluminova to the second hands.

But, what makes this watch even more unique is that the RM011 Felipe Massa Titanium Black DLC Grand Prix Brazil: was created with a black titanium DLC coating on its center titanium case which further lends a ‘night’ effect to the watch. There is also a keen touch of design detail with the image of Felipe Massa’s helmet at the 10 to reiterate the ten-piece collection. Some of its main features which are major technical innovations are its, skeletonized automatic, winding movement with adjustable rotor geometry with flyback chronograph in hours, minutes & seconds, 60 minute countdown timer, 12 hour totalizer, and oversize date, month, annual calendar.

This special edition RM 011 truly embodies the history breaking moment & synergy that so closely bond timekeeping and motor sport and is an absolute must have Richard Mille Watch.
