SIHH 2016 has come to an end. This grand event displayed many new stunning watches. And Richard Mille RM 67-01 Automatic Extra Flat is a watch which looks excellent.

The extreme use of skeletonization in the RM 67-01 carries many clues in this respect, however a new approach to the dial construction carries the eyes from the edges of the bezel in three layers to the central area’s hour and minute hands.Richard Mille RM 67-01 Automatic Extra Flat dial

The case of this new icon in the collection represents the first time that the inimical tonneau shape has been created in an extra flat form, making it the most sleek model of the tonneau shaped Richard Mille timepieces.

The numerals in this new model have been created from solid metal and mounted on two linked and rigid titanium rails attached directly to the movement. To increase the sensation of depth, each numeral has been sculptured out of solid metal and filled with Luminova in order to provide easy night-time viewing, a first for the brand in this category of watches.Richard Mille RM 67-01 Automatic Extra Flat dial 02

The vertical date window, now moved to the right side of the dial at 5 o’clock, is also enclosed in a window broadly outlined with Luminova. Between 1 and 2 o’clock, the function indicator for Winding, Date and Hand setting can also be seen.

Although this new timepiece is an automatic winding timepiece, it will require a little bit of winding when used for the first time or after having not been worn for a few days. The indicator moves as the crown is pulled out, thus taking the guesswork out of choosing a function only by touch or the number of ‘clicks’ as one moves the crown in and out.Richard Mille RM 67-01 Automatic Extra Flat caseback

The automatic movement CRMA6 created for the RM 67-01 is a new calibre of only 3.6mm thickness, designed in house by the engineers in Les Breuleux. The baseplate and bridges have been created from grade 5 titanium and finished with a combination of gray and black electroplasma treatment, with a winding rotor weight in platinum. The back of the movement continues the extra attention to creating a sense of depth with extensive skeletonization visible everywhere, including the large open worked winding barrel, rotor, going train and automatic winding mechanism bridges.

The new Richard Mille RM 67-01 Automatic Extra Flat is equipped with a beautiful black alligator strap with rolled edges and the traditional double folding spring buckle.
