The case of the RM 11-03 McLaren is made of Carbon TPT® interlaced with Orange Quartz TPT®, resulting in an extremely resistant and lightweight case while paying tribute to a colour that is synonymous with McLaren. The Carbon TPT® enhances the mechanical performance of the RM 11-03 and offers resistance to harsh environments.
The titanium pushers fitted to the Carbon TPT® case echo the design of the headlights of the McLaren 720S. Titanium inserts, similar in shape to the iconic McLaren F1’s air-intake snorkel and bearing the McLaren logo, adorn the bezel. The complex grade 5 titanium crown is shaped like a McLaren lightweight wheel and the McLaren Speedmark logo is incorporated into the rubber strap specifically developed for this watch.

The RM 11-03 McLaren features the automatic RMAC3 calibre mechanism, first launched in 2016, with a flyback chronograph and 55-hour power reserve. The instant return of the counter to zero makes it possible to quickly restart the stopwatch function.
The baseplate and bridges are made from PVD-treated grade 5 titanium, enabling the gear train to function effortlessly. The dial features an annual calendar and oversized date, as well as a 12-hour chronograph and countdown counters.
