Richard Mille introduced the new RM 11-04 Automatic Flyback Chronograph Roberto Mancini developed in collaboration with the current director of Italy’s national football crew.
The new model reprises the RM 11-01 Roberto Mancini that was delivered in 2013 following the idea of creating a mechanical watch with a dedicated dial for tracking the time of a soccer coordinate.

The dial displays the match time on the basis of two 45-minute parts, and as long as 15 minutes of stoppage time.
The client can begin or stop the chronograph function via the pusher situated somewhere in the range of 1 and 2 o’clock. Pressing the pusher at 4 o’clock once impels the flyback function and repositions the hand at 12 o’clock, prepared to begin the subsequent half. If additional time is granted, the flyback function can be reactivated with the goal that the watch shows the 15 minutes of additional match time and as long as 5 minutes of stoppage time.
The RM 11-04 incorporates Richard Mille’s most recent style codes, as found in the new lines of the crown, its variable-calculation rotor and its super energetic case in Carbon TPT with raised crenulations. Case dimensions are Measuring 49.94 mm x 44.50 mm x 16.15 mm, the case is water-resistant to 50 meters/165 feet, on account of two Nitrile O-ring seals.
The tones are a gesture to Italy’s banner (green, white and red) and to the light blue of the shirts utilized by the Italian soccer group, nicknamed “Azzurri”.
Along with hours, minutes, seconds and flyback chronograph, the skeletonised automatic winding Caliber RMAC3 likewise controls a yearly schedule with an oversize date opening at 12 o’clock and a more modest month display somewhere in the range of 4 and 5 o’clock. For quite a long time of 30 or 31 days, the date is automatically changed.
The development offers a force save of circa 55 hours (± 10%) or 45 hours when the chronograph is running. A twofold barrel framework assists with improving force stability over a more extended period. This is achieved by dividing the put away energy within two winding barrels instead of one, accordingly reducing pressing factor and friction on the teeth, the bearings and the pivots, resulting in improved long haul execution.
A free sprung offset wheel with variable inertia ensures more noteworthy reliability when exposed to stuns and furthermore during development gathering and disassembly, henceforth better chronometric results over the long haul. The controller index is eliminated and a more exact and repeatable change is possible, on account of 4 little, movable weights found directly on the equilibrium.
The rotor with variable math was designed to optimize its winding motion. This solution permits the rewinding of the mainspring to be adjusted most effectively to the user’s activity level. By adjusting the setting of the rib’s position, the rotor’s inertia is modified to either accelerate the winding interaction for the situation of leisurely arm developments, or back it off while sporting activities are sought after. The rotor is made from titanium with a 18K white gold weight portion.
Completed by an elastic arm band with a titanium folding clasp, the Richard Mille RM 11-04 Automatic Flyback Chronograph Roberto Mancini has a price of Euro 201,300. richardmille.com
