Red alert

Richard Mille sees red with the RM Red TPT Quartz
Vibrant and tough, the new addition to the Richard Mille quartz collection can only get better

Rarely do you find a high-end automatic chronograph in an eye-catching shade of red. Richard Mille has used this shade as an advantage and created the new limited edition RM 011 Red TPT Quartz. A close cousin to the timepiece worn by Rafael Nadal, and also named after him, the new introduction doesn't just have its colour to thank for standing out.

Using a special durable NTPT carbon that can be found on sailboats and in the construction of the chassis in Formula One and aeronautics, the Swiss watchmaker can now call this a trademark material in their creations. Able to withstand high temperatures, impact forces of up to 5,000 G and electromagnetic waves, the latest creation is for those in need of a durable timepiece. By merging the red quartz with the black carbon, the hue is complimented with an unusual pattern.

Protecting the 55 hour power reserve, the dial of the timepiece showcases a larger than usual window for the date and month display, just under 12 and 4 o'clock respectively. With a high technical function and a case to match, the creation is a result of the collaboration between Richard mille and Manufacture Pro Art.
