When it comes to cross-border cooperation models of watches, the first thing we think of is the cross-border cooperation of watches and cars. Cars and watches believe that few men are not interested in them, so in this watch Cross-border cooperation of two things is also the most popular. Today, the 2018 Beijing International Auto Show kicked off at the National Exhibition. I was invited to the McLaren booth at the Beijing Auto Show. Here I will witness a crossover of the most watchmaking and the most supercar in the watchmaking industry. World work.
This year’s Auto Show McLaren has two major highlights. One is the official debut of the new McLaren Senna, a supercar launched by McLaren. The overall design of the car is very sporty, which is in line with McLaren’s family temperament. In addition, the new car is equipped with a 4.0T V8 twin-turbo engine. It is worth mentioning that the new car is limited to 500 units.
The second is the RM 11-03 McLaren Automatic Flyback Chronograph launched by McLaren in collaboration with RICHARD MILLE, Switzerland’s top watch.
RICHARD MILLE has a long relationship with cars. As early as 2004, the legendary F1 racer Felipe Massa from Brazil became the first brand friend of RM. Since then, the opportunity of RM and speed has been opened, and the relationship between RM and cars has become closer. . In the past two years, RM has established cooperative relationships with multiple teams in the Formula 1 race. It combines sports, fashion, high technology, speed and other elements with RM’s unique DNA. One after another, the wonderful watches are dizzying.
Last year, RICHARD MILLE established a partnership with McLaren. RICHARD MILLE engineers and McLaren design director decided to use innovative materials and modern craftsmanship to make a unique watch. Finally in March of this year, RICHARD MILLE launched the RM 11-03 McLaren automatic flyback chronograph.
This watch has three special features. The first point is its material. The case of the RM 11-03 McLaren Automatic Flyback Chronograph is made of TPT® carbon fiber and orange TPT® quartz fiber. The use of these two materials makes the watch extremely lightweight and extremely durable. TPT® carbon fiber further enhances the mechanical properties of the watch, making it resistant to harsh environments, such as compression and corrosion.
The second point is its design. The titanium timing button design of this watch is based on the unique headlight design of the McLaren 720S supercar. The titanium inlay of the watch’s bezel, with the McLaren logo, is similar to the intake pipe of the classic McLaren F1 car. Tier 5 titanium crown is like McLaren’s lightweight wheels. The McLaren Speedmark logo is integrated into a rubber strap specially developed for the timepiece.
The third point is the RMAC3 automatic movement specially designed for this watch. This movement has an annual calendar display, 12-hour cumulative countdown and countdown display. The structure of the movement adopts a grade 5 titanium alloy base plate and bridge plate treated with PVD coating, which is highly resistant to corrosion and driven by two barrels and variable inertia balance wheels side by side. It has a power reserve of up to 55 hours. To sum up this movement, that is, stability and good, are very good in terms of shock resistance.
