Richard Mille Tourbillon Jean Todt Limited Edition

Jean Todt, Chairman of the FIA ​​FIA, is a man of many affairs. He travels around the world all year round and participates in various official events or conferences. Richard Mille wanted to provide people with constant travel time and time around the world like Jean Todt with watches capable of mastering time in different time zones, so he introduced a watch with this top-level complication of international standard time: RM 58-01.

For modern people who have adapted to the 24 time zone division, it is difficult to imagine the era when there was no time zone in the past. Until the 20th century, there were various time zone division methods around the world. With the advent of railways and telegraph systems, countries around the world have become increasingly connected. Due to the huge losses caused by uneven time zone divisions, action on standard time zone divisions is imminent. In 1858, the mathematician Quirico Filopanti first proposed the prime meridian as the basis for the 24-hour time zone division. In 1884, the International Meridian Conference officially determined the 24 time zone division, and set Greenwich as the prime meridian, which was recognized internationally. But it was not until the 20th century that this decision was accepted and widely used throughout the world.

This hand-wound watch has an hour and minute display, a power reserve of up to 10 days, and a power reserve display at 2 o’clock. With a diameter of 34 mm, the plate of the RM58-01 movement is made of grade five titanium alloy, and the bridge plate is also made of the same material. The tourbillon is located at 9 o’clock, swings at 3 Hz, and is housed in a four-layer titanium and rose gold case. The rotating bezel is shot peened and satin-polished, and the names of the 24 major cities in the world are engraved on the dark brown inner ring, symbolizing the 24 time zones advocated by Fleming.

Under the simple and elegant appearance of the watch, there are hidden extremely complicated mechanical mysteries. Unlike other watches with this complication, the RM 58-01 does not have any buttons for changing the time zone. Instead, you can change the time zone by rotating the bezel counterclockwise to adjust the time more quickly. After arriving at a new city, simply rotate the city name to the 12 o’clock position, and the time on the inner circle will automatically define the local and 23 other cities. The black and white discs clearly indicate the day and night time, and automatically show the change of day and night with time.
Richard Mille wanted to create an easy-to-use watch. The many movements and case engineers of Richard Mille watch factory took time and careful research, and finally achieved this great innovation, successfully integrating a movement-connected gear into the bezel, on the one hand, two parts Perfect fit, on the other hand, because there is no button design, the overall waterproofness of the watch is guaranteed.
The RM 58-01 watch is crafted in red gold, with a titanium bezel and case back, limited to 35 pieces. The sale of this one-of-a-kind watch will be donated by Jean Todt to fund two key projects that he values ​​highly: the ‘FIA Action For Road Safety’ campaign and the Brain and Spinal Cord Institute (ICM), which he co-founded.
