Gasoline heads will love Richard Miller RM 11-03 McLaren Automatic
Richard Mille and McLaren have collaborated in Formula One for more than a year, but now their partnership has expanded to road bikes and the first McLaren launched Kaiser-style timepiece. The all-new Richard Mille RM 11-03 McLaren automatic flyback chronograph will be unveiled at the Geneva Motor Show.
It's basically a bold and colorful expression of the watchmaking industry, showing a wonderful mix of carbon fiber and quartz and orange and black, which reminds us of the popular McLaren theme. Based on the updated version of the iconic RM 011, this watch brings back all the technical attributes of RM 11-03 with new materials and design clues.
Aesthetically speaking, the watch has been redesigned with a newly shaped case and bezel that complements the Carbon TPT case intertwined with the Orange Quartz TPT. The bottom case benefits from the same material, although there are other updates worth discussing, such as titanium chronograph buttons or titanium inserts on the bezel.
The crown is shaped like a McLaren steering wheel, while Richard Mille's RM 11-03 McLaren's dial is hollowed out, light and powerful. The RMAC3 movement has a flyback chronograph and a 55-hour power reserve, although true connoisseurs will notice PVD-treated grade 5 titanium bridges and plates, sandblasted surfaces or contrasting rhodium-plated elements.
Finally, the RM 11-03 McLaren Automatic Flyback Chronograph replica swiss watches is made from a stunning orange or black rubber strap with McLaren's Speedmark logo in the texture.
Imagine you just bought a McLaren 720S and it's really popular when discussing a product to buy in white or orange! I don't have a watch to praise cars, crisis! Well, McLaren and Richard Miller have the perfect solution, introducing the Richard Miller RM 11-03 McLaren Automatic Flyback Chronograph.
A watch entirely based on cars. Titanium putters are made similar to car headlights. The notch shape of the rubber strap is similar to the intake pipe of McLaren F1. The intricate Grade 5 titanium crown is shaped like a McLaren wheel (with the McLaren logo at 6 o'clock on the dial). Carbon fiber TPT and orange quartz TPT interwoven case; TPT stands for Thin Ply Technology, which is a method of layering carbon fiber. Don't forget the RMAC3 self-winding movement, equipped with a flyback chronograph and a 55-hour power reserve.

RICHARD MILLE & MCLAREN AUTOMOTIVE RM 11-03 Watch
The RM 11-03 McLaren Automatic Flyback Chronograph is the result of a year-long close collaboration between McLaren Design Director Rob Melville and Richard Mille Engineer Fabrice Namura. The design of the watch was inspired by McLaren's luxury sports car series, and more specifically, the McLaren 720S. In fact, the titanium button is inspired by the McLaren 720S headlights. The bezel is made of titanium metal, shaped like the intake pipe of McLaren F1, and the crown of titanium alloy is like a McLaren tire. In addition, the McLaren Speedmark logo is printed on a rubber strap specially developed for this version.
The RM 11-03 McLaren's case is an interweaving of lightweight and durable CarbonTPT® and Orange QuartzTPT®. Equipped with the automatic RMAC3 movement, which was first introduced in 2016, its flyback chronograph can reset the counter to zero instantly, which can quickly restart the stopwatch function. The movement is equipped with two barrels mounted in parallel, which retains 55 hours of power and has a balance wheel with variable inertia. The concept of a variable-geometry rotor can be personalised based on the level of activity of the wearer.MB&F HM9 Flow Red Gold Road 90.RL.RB
Specifications of Richard Miller Caliber RM11-03 Automatic Flyback Chronograph McLaren
RMAC3 CALIBRE: skeleton automatic winding movement with variable geometry rotor, hour, minute, second, anti-fly chronograph, 60-minute countdown timer at 9 o'clock, 12-hour totalizer, oversized date Month indicator.
Dimensions: 49.94 x 44.50 x 16.23 mm
Power reserve: about 55 hours (± 10%). The actual power reserve result will depend on the amount of timer function used.
Grade 5 titanium base and bridge
The base plate and bridge are made of grade 5 titanium alloy, a biocompatible, highly corrosion-resistant and very hard alloy that makes the gear train work easily. The alloy is 90% grade 5 titanium,
6% aluminum and 4% vanadium. This combination further improves the mechanical properties of the material, which explains its frequent use in the aerospace, aviation and automotive industries. The bottom plate of the RMAC3 movement has been optimized to achieve an extremely low weight / resistance ratio.
Skeletonized backplanes and bridges have undergone rigorous and complete verification tests to optimize their resistance capacity.HUBLOT MP-05 LAFERRARI TITANIUM 905.NX.0001.RX
Using the buttons between 4 and 5 o'clock, you can reset a running chronograph without stopping the mechanism first. It was originally developed for pilots to avoid wasting time (and accuracy) by stopping, resetting, and starting the chronograph while crossing the navigation point.
When the timekeeping function is enabled, the hours and minutes will show the elapsed time, thanks to the counters at 6 and 9 o'clock, and the central hand will display the seconds.
The user can start or stop the timing function with the buttons located between 1 and 2.
The flyback function can be reset continuously by pressing the button between 4 and 5 o'clock.
Oversized date display: semi-instantaneously, placed in a horizontal aperture below 12 o'clock, and automatically adjusted for 30 or 31 days.
Month display: Semi-instantaneous, represented by Arabic numerals between 4 and 5 o'clock.
Free spring balance with variable inertia: this balance wheel represents the ultimate goal of innovation. It guarantees higher reliability when subjected to shocks and during the assembly and disassembly of the movement, so the timing is better with the passage of time. Thanks to 4 small adjustable weights located directly on the balance, the indication of the regulator is eliminated and a more accurate and repeatable calibration is possible.
Variable geometry rotor
– Grade 5 titanium alloy central flange
– 18K white gold weight segment
– Screws in grade 5 titanium alloy with 6 position adjustable weight segments
– 18K white gold wing
–Ceramic ball bearings
– Anti-clockwise unidirectional winding
This unique Richard Mille design makes it possible to effectively adapt the winding of the mainspring to the user's level of activity, whether in a sports or non-sport environment. By adjusting the position of the wings, the inertia of the rotor can be changed to speed up the winding process in the case of a leisurely movement of the arm, or to slow down the rotation speed in sports activities. As a result, the present invention allows the winding mechanism of the movement to be optimized and personalized to the owner's lifestyle.Richard Mille Replica Watches
Dual barrel system: The dual barrel system improves torque stability over a longer period of time. This is achieved by using a higher rotation of the barrel, which reduces pressure and wear on the teeth, bearings and pivots, which improves long-term performance.
Grade 5 titanium spline screws for movement: this allows better control of the torque applied to the screws during assembly. These screws are not affected by physical manipulations during assembly or disassembly and age well.

The case of the RM 11-03 McLaren is made of CarbonTPT® and QuartzTPT®.
Carbon TPT® and orange quartz TPT® are exclusive materials with unique appearance. Their excellent surfaces show extremely regular undulations because they consist of multiple layers of parallel filaments, which are obtained by dividing carbon or silicone filaments. These layers have a maximum thickness of 45 microns and are impregnated with resin and then woven on a special machine to change the weft direction between the layers by 45 ° (QuartzTPT® layers are saturated with an orange resin developed specifically for Richard Mille).
These materials are heated to 120 ° C at a pressure of 6 bar and are then ready for processing on a CNC machine in Richard Mille's case factory.
The shell of the RM 11-03 is water-resistant to 50 meters and secured by two nitrile O-ring seals.
The case is equipped with 20 grade 5 titanium spline screws and 316L stainless steel wear-resistant washers.
