Richard Mille has continued to grow its RM family of timepieces by marrying professional aesthetics with sporting capabilities.

The new RM 67-02, the 7th Richard Mille in-house calibre, weighs 32 grams, including its strap, making it the lightest automatic watch in the Richard Mille collection.

Richard Mille designed this model to adapt to various sporting disciplines; several of the brand’s partners wear an RM 67-02 in the colours of their respective countries, and test the abilities of this automatic calibre in a range of settings beyond the athletics track.

The first versions of the RM 67-02 were developed for South African sprinter Wayde Van Niekerk, and Qatari high-jumper Mutaz Essa Barshim.

The colourful CRMA7 calibre timepiece combines the grade five titanium of the baseplate and bridges with the white gold and Carbon TPT of the variable-geometry rotor.

Richard Mille has equipped its new collection with a new ‘comfort’ strap that is highly elastic, allowing it to fit the contours of each wrist.

In addition to these RM 67-02 editions in production, Richard Mille created two unique prototypes that are currently touring the Formula 1 circuits, worn by Charles Leclerc of Monaco and Fernando Alonso of Spain.
