Richard Mille continues to support Le Mans Classic as Main Partner and Official Timekeeper of the race. The Jura watchmaker has supported this competition since the first event in 2002. This year’s, the 7th edition of Le Mans Classic will take place July 4, 5 and 6, and for that occasion Richard Mille will also release a new limited edition RM 030 Le Mans Classic in celebration of the 2014 edition. The watch is the fourth piece to carry the name of the competition. It features an automatic winding movement with 55 hours of power reserve.
Additionally, this new mechanism is linked to the power reserve indicator placed at 9 o’clock to provide an optimal winding control with the best ratio of constant torque/power. The RM 030 LMC also has a 24 hours display placed at 2 o’clock. The indication “16”references to the depart time of the endurance race, is a discrete homage to the event. The RM 030 LMC displays the colors of the historic race inside of its movement as well as its white ATZ ceramic case and with the rubber of the NTPT crown.
As expected, RM 030 Le Mans Classic is limited to only 100 pieces.
