This limited-edition Richard Mille is the ultimate Le Mans Classic souvenir

It’s become something of a tradition for Richard Mille to reveal a limited edition timepiece at the Le Mans Classic – an event of which it’s been the official sponsor and timekeeper since its inception in 2002. Here is this year’s edition, straight from the show stand...

The RM 11-02 Le Mans Classic made its public debut at the eighth edition of the historic motorsport extravaganza this weekend, and is said to honour the 80 years of motorsport history at La Sarthe, just like the event. Based on the existing RM 11, the Le Mans Classic features a flyback chronograph, a dual-time zone indicator, a white ATZ ceramic bezel and caseback, and grade-five titanium used throughout the automatic movement. In addition to the event’s green used across the dial, the case and the rubber strap, the Le Mans Classic logo sits at 12 o’clock. Just 150 pieces will be built, making it perhaps the ultimate souvenir of the event for those lucky enough to be racing at La Sarthe this weekend.
