According to Richard Mille and ACJ, the companies spent about two years working on the Richard Mille RM 50-02 ACJ Tourbillon Split Seconds Chronograph, so it’s not surprising why it is limited to only 30 pieces. Its open-worked design allows for breathtaking views of the intricately constructed technical interior, while a number of parts within the movement have been finished with an aeronautical coating to prevent corrosion.
The case of the RM50-02 ACJ is made in Titanium – Aluminium (TiA), the same alloy used on the Airbus jet turbine blades, which must function safely under the convergence of high temperatures and high fields of pressure, thus requiring a very strong and highly stress resistant material.
In TiA created with second bezel in ATZ white ceramic. This high quality ceramic is based on aluminium oxide powder injected at a pressure of 2,000 bar, which increases rigidity by 20-30% and reduces the material’s porosity to an absolute minimum. ATZ has the reputation of being a particularly scratch-resistant material (1,400 Vickers) and possessing unchangeable color. After diamond, it is one of the hardest materials in the world.
Additional details include Torq set screws and a jet engine-inspired crown.
Richard Mille RM 50-02 ACJ Tourbillon Split Seconds Chronograph can be yours for a cool $1,050,000.
