Lot Essay

The RM008 by Richard Mille is until today one of the firm's most complicated timepieces, pairing a split-seconds chronograph and a tourbillon mechanism. The high-tech components, such as the carbon nanofiber baseplate used in this manual winding movement, are of superb quality and allow for a high degree of repeatability of all functions.

The owner can start/stop the chronograph by pressing the pusher at 8 o'clock and the hands are reset by pressing the pusher at 10 o'clock.

Impressively, the energy consumption of the split-seconds mechanism was lowered by approximately 50% compared to other regular split-seconds by reducing frictions.

The split-seconds chronograph is activated by pressing the pusher at 4 o'clock. By pressing the pusher again, it will allow the split seconds hand to rejoin the chronograph hand.

Accidental overwinding, which could cause damage to the winding stem (or alternatively create too much pressure on the barrel spring), can now be controlled thanks to the torque limiting crown feature created by Richard Mille.

The power reserve on this RM008 is of approximately 70 hours, which equals to almost six days, a satisfying amount of time considering the other complications on this timepiece.

Last but not least, the present example offered here for auction is complete and accompanied by its Richard Mille Warranty and presentation box
