    The RM 014 was inspired by the extraordinary sailing vessels of the yacht builders Perini Navi of Viareggio. The shape of the crown, case outlines, as well as many other elements echoes the visual elements and nautical details found on the ocean going vessels created by Perini Navi. Like the RM 003-V2, the astounding RM 014 also employs carbon nanofibre as the construction material for the movement plate. The composite material is an isotope possessing mechanical, physical and chemical stability when moulded under high pressure. The movement plate hence assures better rigidity between the plate and bridges, all in all creating improved accuracy.
