The Limited Edition RM 11-03 Jean Todt
The RM 11-03 Jean Todt was launched in honor of celebrating the 50th Anniversary of Richard Mille’s close friend, none other than Jean Todt, the President of the Federation Internationale de I’Automobile. He is a central figure in the world of motor racing, thus he deserves to receive the highest recognition. It is the third watch released in collaboration with Jean Todt after the RM 036 Tourbillon G-Sensor Jean Todt and the RM 58-01 Tourbillon World Timer Jean Todt.
First of all, let’s take a look at the remarkable tonneau-shaped case which is 44.50 x 49.94 mm in size and made of NTPT Blue Carbon and NTPT Black Carbon. The color of the case marks the First Blue Case Timepiece from Richard Mille which color was specifically inspired by Jean Todt’s favorite blue tone. Housed on a black rubber strap that has a fold-over Titanium clasp which is making this piece even more stunning.
Have you ever wondered what’s making this blue timepiece even more special? The RM 11-03 Jean Todt is using the New RMAC3 Calibre which has an automatic winding movement with a variable-geometry rotor which comes with hours, minutes, seconds, flyback chronograph, 60-minute countdown timer at 9 o’clock, 12-hour totalizer, oversize date, and month indicator with power reserve up to 55 hours and water resistance of 50 meters. The skeletonized bridges and baseplate combined with the titanium and carbon nanofibre allowed the movement to be totally light which is weighing just 9.5 grams.
The rareness of this beauty is proved by the limited number produced which is up to 150 pieces only in the world!
