In celebration of the return of the Winter Olympic

first_imgIn celebration of the return of the Winter Olympics to North America in 2010, Richard Mille is creating a 30-piece limited edition RM 011: “Americas Four.” This new watch debuts in time for the lighting of the Olympic torch in Vancouver this February, and will only be available at Richard Mille retailers in North and South America.The new timepiece, RM011 DLC Titanium Americas White Limited Edition, features the chronograph functions that are essential to athletes and sports fans alike. For the first time in an RM 011 model, this edition has a sprinkling of white details around the dial, crown, hands and numerals-—like the snow that blankets the slopes of Whistler, British Columbia, the scene of the Olympics.Black titanium DLC coating on the center titanium case lends a ‘night’ effect to the watch. Some of its main features, which are major technical innovations, are its skeletonized automatic winding movement with adjustable rotor geometry with flyback chronograph in hours, minutes and seconds; 60-minute countdown timer; 12-hour totalizer; annual calendar; and oversize date and month.This special edition RM 011 embodies the historic synergy between timekeeping and sports, and Richard Mille’s commitment to precision performance. The watch retails for $90,000 and is arriving in stores this week.For more information visit www.richardmille.com.last_img read more
