Richard Mille RM 030 Limited Edition Watch

Richard Mille RM 030 Limited Edition watch is a great addition to the highly successful RM010 and RM016 Black Night family. The company is releasing only 25 watches that will be available at a few exclusive showrooms in Europe, the Middle East, Africa and Russia this summer. The Richard Mille RM 030 Limited Edition watch is characterized by the presence of a declutchable rotor. The designer took over four years to develop a motor that declutches automatically. This helps prevent the accumulation of harmful debris in the winding barrel of the watch, especially when the flange releases excessive energy associated with prolonged over winding. The declutchable motor can help improve the chronometric results of the watch. The winding barrel automatically disconnects from the rotor’s winding mechanism the moment the spring is fully wound. It also connects the power reserve indicator to the optimal winding control. This helps maintain optimum torque/power ratio for the ultimate chronometric performance.
