Each watch is a fusion of the brand with cutting-edge technological achievements, or sophisticated craftsmanship combined with rigorous watchmaking. It shows us the endless creativity and unique charm of the brand, just like this watch. With the convenience of transportation, this earth is becoming more and more ‘small’, the time zone spans are becoming more and more ordinary, and the time proofing phenomenon of frequent time zone changes is generated. This can be a waste of the ‘space-time walker’ who often travels through 24 time zones. , So this watch came into being, let’s take a look at it with the editor! (Watch model: RM 58-01RG)
Not only people, watches also need to be ‘jet lag’
Different times in different time zones
After a lot of trips abroad, you can enjoy the scenery of foreign countries. But I only know it if I have experienced it, and there is also the ‘evil’ division of jet lag. As long as friends who go abroad will have such encounters, flight delays, late meetings and many other negative effects. At this moment, the watch as a timing tool also needs to ‘fall back’, the wrong time zone will delay many important things. This is the case once in a while, not to mention the ‘time zone walker’ who frequently crosses the time zone under the circumstances of force majeure.
FIA Chairman Jean Todt
FIA FIA Chairman Jean Todt is a person with a lot of 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, such as Jean Todt, with watches capable of mastering time in different time zones, so he introduced the RM 58-01 watch, which is a top-level complication of international standards.
Quick and easy time zone adjustment
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.
Refined and stylish design
Watch overall display
The watch’s 50 mm diameter case is made of red gold, and the titanium bezel and bottom cover have a very strong sense of layering. It changes the brand’s universal barrel shape to a round case, which makes people shine. The two completely different bezels and cases provide the wearer with a different look and feel, exquisite, elegant and stylish.
Watch dial display
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. With hour and minute display and power reserve display at 2 o’clock. The tourbillon, the symbol of the highest level of craftsmanship in the watchmaking industry, is located at 9 o’clock, with a swing frequency of 3 Hz.
Watch bezel display
The watch adopts the brand’s usual ‘wheel’ design style, with a polished crown and a soft outer ring. The watch crown has the sense of sight of racing tires, and the adjustment of the watch is completed by twisting the crown and the bezel, giving a different operating experience, which is not interesting.
Watch movement display
Due to the waterproof performance of the watch, a partially transparent design is adopted, and a window is only opened at the tourbillon for the watch movement to operate. The plate of the movement is made of grade five titanium alloy, and the bridge plate is also made of the same material. And has a power reserve of up to 10 days.
Watch real show
The brown-tone dial symbolizes the calmness and atmosphere of a man, and has an ‘uncle’ style. Classic and exquisite coexist, it is your perfect companion for travel and business. Don’t worry about handing over time work with it, focus on being your fashion time zone master!
