Richard Mille RM 11-03 Le Mans Classic
Richard Mille is the official partner of Le Mans Classic since its creation in 2002. Last weekend, the brand presented its new watch dedicated to the race, the very sporty RM 11-03 LMC.
Following a tradition now firmly established, Richard Mille presented a new watch at Le Mans Classic 2018, which took place from July 6 to 8 (watch the video). Dedicated to endurance racing, the RM 11-03 Le Mans Classic timepiece is inspired by automotive history, and sporting accents of legendary British racing green that are entirely in keeping with the style of Le Mans Classic.
This numbered limited edition of only 150 pieces is the first RM 11-03 to have a case made of white ceramic and Carbon TPT®. This material possesses an unchangeable colour and after diamond, it is one of the hardest materials in the world.

Details that evoke motorsport abound in the RM 11-03, from the crown design inspired by competition wheel rims and tyre treads to the ribbed pushers which take inspiration from the grooves on pedals fashioned from the same material.
The Calibre RMAC3 is made of Grade 5 titanium. The glossy bevelled rims marked with intermediate times surrounding the coloured counters of the flyback chronograph and seconds window give an impression of depth. This sense of volume is further accentuated by an upper bridge in satin-brushed grade 5 titanium that contrasts with the movement, also crafted of titanium but with a PVD coating.
The 24-hour flyback chronograph display highlights the number ‘16’, referring to the start time of the race.
