Richard Mille RM 21-01 TOURBILLON AERODYNE
Like armor, this CARBON TPT® exoskeleton perfectly protects the shell and is firmly held in place by 20 spline screws.
The excellence of a Richard Mille Wholesale replica watches is as important as the construction and materials from which it is made. Naturally, it is impossible to design a watch that is resistant to extreme conditions without using ingredients that were themselves created to handle the rigors of demand.
By utilizing engineered materials - especially those from the fields of aviation and Formula 1 - and testing their potential use in watch movements or casings, Richard Mille creates designs where precision, lightness and reliability are closely related to the materials used watch.
The new RM 21-01 Tourbillon Aerodyne is completely faithful to this lineage and draws on aeronautical influences.
Perseverance With the RM 21-01, Richard Mille presents a completely new case design. The complex structure of the 5N red gold case is reinforced by a Carbon TPT® exoskeleton for the bezel and pillars. The extremely lightweight and durable composite material is stacked from hundreds of layers of carbon fiber thanks to an automated process that rotates 45° between each layer and is then heated to 120° in an autoclave before being machined to the nearest Micron. Like armor, these reinforcements perfectly protect the case and are held firmly in place by 20 splined screws.
The striking appearance of the Carbon TPT® layer perfectly complements the base plate's golden shine and royal blue honeycomb pattern.
At the center of the chassis is Carbon TPT® carbon fiber, this time incorporating an orthogonal honeycomb structure embodying the concept of air itself, and made of HAYNES® 214® with a blue PVD treatment, a first for the brand. This nickel-chromium-aluminum-iron alloy is primarily used in thermal environments exceeding 955°. The best resistance to high-temperature oxidation makes this material - which can nonetheless be molded and assembled by conventional methods - a particularly suitable choice for combustion chambers. As a result, the baseplate of the RM 21-01 has unrivaled stiffness, an extremely low coefficient of thermal expansion and excellent resistance to torsion, all of which are fundamental prerequisites for Richard Mille high quality watches replica.
For the bridges, Richard Mille's movement team chose grade 5 titanium, a biocompatible titanium-aluminum-vanadium alloy used in the aerospace industry, which ensures excellent rigidity and excellent corrosion resistance . The barrel and tourbillon bridges are composed of four arms, resting on a hollowed-out circular base, inlaid with gold, in the central crucible of the bridge, making it mechanically ideal for the rotation of these moving parts while allowing the aesthetics of the tourbillon To reflect the brilliance. The movement is PVD-treated in 5N red gold to enhance the contrast created by the case and the character of this flying mechanism.
mechanical subtleties The sapphire glass dial provides a flawless transparent window to the hand-wound movement RM21-01. Instead of numerals, the power reserve indicator is at 11 o'clock, while the torque indicator is at 1 o'clock. The latter makes it possible to immediately know the tension of the barrel spring, thus optimizing the function of the movement. The function selector is located at 4 o'clock and is operated by a pusher integrated in the center of the crown in Carbon TPT® and 5N red gold with a gasket of the same material as the white rubber bracelet. Switch from neutral (N) position to winding (W) position to manual setting (H) with a single push.
From the meticulous hand-finishing including chamfering, polishing, buffing and chamfering of components, to the use of innovative and technical materials and the incorporation of a tourbillon to counteract the effects of gravity, the new RM 21-01 Tourbillon Aerodyne Limited release, explore new horizons.

Honeycomb Orthogonal HAYNES® 214® Baseplate with Carbon TPT® Core HAYNES® 214® is a nickel-chromium-aluminum-iron alloy designed to provide optimum high temperature oxidation resistance for wrought austenitic materials while allowing conventional forming and joining. 214® alloy is primarily used at temperatures of 955°C and above, where it exhibits oxidation resistance that far exceeds that of almost all conventional heat-resistant wrought alloys.
Combined with a carbon TPT® core, the honeycomb geometric pattern of HAYNES® 214® provides unrivaled stiffness, low coefficient of thermal expansion and excellent torsional resistance.
The orthogonal base plate is treated with blue PVD to accentuate its original structure.
Bridges made of Grade 5 Titanium: The bridges are made of Grade 5 Titanium, a biocompatible, highly corrosion-resistant and very hard alloy that allows the gear train to function effortlessly. The alloy contains 90% grade 5 titanium, 6% aluminum and 4% vanadium. This combination further enhances the material's mechanical properties, which explains its frequent use in the aerospace, aviation and automotive industries. They are 5N Gold PVD treated.fashion replica watches
The skeletonized baseplate and bridges undergo intensive and complete validation testing to optimize their resistance capabilities.
function selector In a manner similar to a car transmission, a button located in the center of the crown allows one to select winding, neutral and manual setting functions with a simple push. The hand at 4 o'clock shows the selected function.
torque indicator With a digital scale located between 12 o'clock and 1 o'clock, this indicator provides a visualization of the tension inside the mainspring, thus optimizing the timing of the movement. Below 5.3 N.mm, the spring is too loose; at the other extreme, above 6.5 N.mm, too much tension can adversely affect the operation of the movement and may even cause damage.
Free spring balance wheel with variable inertia A free-sprung balance offers greater reliability in the event of shocks or movement assembly and disassembly, and also guarantees better timekeeping results over time.replica watches for men
Fast-spinning barrel (6 hours per revolution instead of 7.5 hours) This barrel has the following advantages: Significantly less periodic internal mainspring sticking for improved performance. Provides an excellent mainspring triangular curve with an ideal power reserve/performance and regularity ratio. Barrel pawl with progressive recoil This unit allows for considerable winding gain (approximately 20%), especially at the beginning of winding. It also promotes an even distribution of tension within the mainspring.
Modular time setting mechanism on the case back Provides the following advantages for service life and maintenance: Since this component is mounted on the outside of the movement, in the event of a possible defect or during maintenance, the time-setting component can be replaced without affecting the integrity of the baseplate. Installing and removing the module from the back does not require removal of the hands or dial. Wheel-based time setting system (back of movement) Provides smooth time-setting functionality by eliminating meshing friction and replacing it with rolling friction.
Barrel teeth and three-wheel pinion with central involute profile The central involute profile of the barrel teeth and pinion provides an optimal pressure angle of 20°. This promotes efficient rotational movement and compensates for possible variations in driveline meshing, ensuring excellent torque transfer and significantly enhancing performance.
Spline screws in grade 5 titanium for bridges and case This allows for better control of the torque applied to the screw during assembly. These screws are impervious to physical manipulation during assembly or disassembly and age well.Shopping replica watches

Case made of 5n red gold and carbon TPT® From the case and dial to every part of the movement, the design and execution of the watch showcases a holistic approach to the movement, case and dial concept. Therefore, everything is built to extremely strict specifications. The case ring is eliminated and the movement is secured to the chassis with four grade 5 titanium screws and silent blocks (ISO SW).
Carbon TPT® is a high-tech material consisting of 600 layers of parallel filaments obtained by separating carbon fibres. The layers, no thicker than 30 microns, are assembled on a special machine that stacks the layers, changing the direction of the fibers by 45° from layer to layer, and impregnating them with a black matrix. The composite is then heated to 120°C at a pressure of 6 bar in a kiln similar to those used to produce aerospace parts, before being ready for machining at Richard Mille. At this stage, the multiple layers of Carbon TPT® are revealed, creating a random tessellation pattern that makes each piece unique.
The triple case is water resistant to 50 meters, ensured by 2 Nitrile O-ring seals. The case is assembled with 20 spline screws in grade 5 titanium and wear-resistant washers in 316L stainless steel. buying Richard Mille RM 011
