With RM 60-01 Regatta Flyback Chronograph flyback automatic chronograph, Richard Mille presents the brand’s first marine-specific technical watch to the world. The watch is equipped with a grade 5 titanium alloy RMAC2 movement, a 55-hour power reserve, a variable inertia balance, a complete flyback chronograph function, an annual calendar function with an oversized date display and UTC function. In addition, the RM 60-01 meets the needs of navigation with its four azimuth basis points as shown by its special rotatable bezel, plus 360 ° and 24-hour dial.
The operating principle of the RM 60-01 is based on the following two points: local time and sun position. To calculate the exact position, the UTC display needs to point to the sun, press the UTC button at 9 o’clock, and turn the bezel until the UTC pointer matches the local time shown on the bezel scale. At this time, the northeast-south direction of the bezel will coincide with the orientation of the ground surface.
The RM 60-01 is different from similar watches because of its ability to point in both the northern and southern hemispheres, no additional calculation is required for this operation. As an additional security measure, the chronograph’s buttons set a quick lock and unlock mechanism. When you lock (red arrow) or unlock (green arrow) the chronograph, you need to rotate the outer ring quickly, so you can easily prevent the chronograph reading from being changed inadvertently.
