Keeping Time at the Le Mans Classic
Richard Mille, sponsor and official timekeeper for July’s spectacular Le Mans Classic meeting, has created a very special limited-edition chronograph to commemorate the occasion in considerable style.
The RM 011 Le Mans Classic is based on Richard Mille’s Flyback Chronograph. It has a titanium – or titanium and red gold – case, a green carbonfibre flange around the dial, the green, black and white chequered Le Mans Classic logo at 12 o’clock, and an automatic winding movement with adjustable rotor geometry. One particular feature – the ‘flyback’ function – allows the wearer to set successive timing sequences, something a spectator or team member at the Le Mans Classic may well find very useful.
Only 200 examples of the new timepiece will be made, 150 with full titanium cases, and the remaining 50 in titanium and 18-carat red gold.
