Richard Mill Launches Rm 27-03 Tourbillon Watch

Since 2010, RICHARD MILLE and Rafael Nadal have worked together to create exceptional watches, writing a new chapter in the history of watchmaking, and the latest works in this series will definitely be refreshing. In terms of impact resistance, the tourbillon movement raises technical performance to an unprecedented level.

   By design, this watch shows the king of the Spanish tennis champion. Obviously, the French Open is a good time to release this new watch. The clay court has always been Rafael Nadal’s favorite. He put his advantages to the fullest and won the French Open champion 9 times. The soft and fragile clay court needs to fully demonstrate the offensive style of play on the premise of observing the basic discipline principles of the game.

   In the same way, this new watch perfectly blends innovations in materials with the structure of horology. The clay court is famous for its expansion effect. The same applies to RM 27-03, its eye-catching red-yellow-toned TPT® quartz case, symbolizing the country of Rafa, Spain. Through a Swiss proprietary process, a thin layer of silica with a thickness of only 45 microns is immersed in a colored resin, and the filaments are woven into a thin layer, and then heated to 120 ° C to show bright colors. During the research and development of new colors of TPT® quartz material, whether it is the color stability required by the REACH standard, or biocompatibility and durability, it shows the superb skills of RICHARD MILLE and North Thin Ply Technology (NTPT®) engineers . After the composite material is prepared, it will take a long time for milling and surface treatment to obtain the watch case and various parts.

   The quartz fiber material of the case can guarantee a waterproof performance of 50 meters in depth, has excellent strength / weight ratio, has no sensitization, and has good UV resistance. However, what makes this extraordinary watch unique is the tourbillon movement that can withstand up to 10,000g of impact. In the ‘pendulum impact test’, the linear acceleration caused by the sudden movement or impact of the wearer is simulated. It is this kind of long research and development and repeated tests that have raised its performance to a new level.

   The ultra-light tourbillon movement is mounted on a hollow integrated TPT® carbon fiber base plate with micron-level accuracy, making this watch almost indestructible, while simplifying the parts in the structure and making it lighter. The quick-winding barrel provides lasting power for up to 70 hours of operation.

   The perfect surface treatment of the RM27-03 movement, using hand-polished progressive chamfering, elegant forged surface, shines with the brightness of micro-grinding technology. The RM27-03 has a memorable atmospheric performance: a highly recognizable and unique hollow bridge plate surrounds the barrel, with sharp and smooth lines, with high-quality gears and a mechanical tourbillon with a 3 Hz frequency, it outlines the visual front Bull image. The bull is a symbol of Spain and a symbol of Nadal’s selection. As a fun compliment, the TPT® Quartz Torque Limiting Crown used for winding and manual setting is tennis-shaped.

   Energetic and sporty, this watch is limited to 50 pieces and will be a new partner for Rafa in the future.

TPT® Carbon Fiber Integrated Base Plate
RM 27-03’s one-piece base plate ring structure is machined from TPT® carbon fiber material. The bezel and the bottom cover are directly mounted on the bottom plate, perfectly interpreting the ‘one-piece’. Its principle is similar to the racing structure, which can ensure maximum rigidity and impact resistance.
TPT® carbon fiber consists of multiple layers of parallel filaments separated from carbon fibers. These TPT® carbon fiber layers, no more than 30 microns thick, are first dipped in a resin and woven using a special machine, with a 45 ° angle between the layers. After heating to 120 ° F at a pressure of 6 bar, TPT® carbon fiber can be machined in the parts factory of RICHARD MILLE. TPT® carbon fiber is known for its excellent resistance to microcracks.
The hollow TPT® carbon fiber baseplate is a revolution in machining. As the main component of RM 27-03, the base plate must be thoroughly tested under extreme conditions to optimize its mechanical properties.
Grade 5 titanium alloy bridge
Grade 5 titanium alloy is a bio-compatible, super corrosion-resistant, high-rigidity alloy that ensures smooth gear operation. This alloy contains 90% titanium, 6% aluminum, and 4% vanadium, which optimizes the mechanical properties and makes it superb in the fields of aerospace, aviation and automobile manufacturing.
The RM27-03 movement bridge plate is the same as the base plate and has also undergone intensive and rigorous complete testing to optimize their impact resistance.

Variable inertia balance without hairspring
The variable inertia balance without hairspring and end curve hairspring can ensure the reliability of the watch when it is subjected to vibration, movement assembly, and disassembly, thereby achieving long-lasting and accurate movement.
Quickly rotate the barrel (6 hours instead of 7.5 hours per revolution)
These barrels have the following advantages:
-Significantly reduce the adhesion of internal mainspring cycle, thereby improving its performance;
-Provides a perfect mainspring delta curve, creating the ideal ratio between power reserve, performance and regularity.
Progressive rebound function barrel pawl
This device can save a lot of energy (about 20%) when it is chained, especially at the beginning of the chain. It also helps to evenly distribute the internal tension of the mainspring.
Winding barrel gear and central involute tooth profile of the center wheel
The involute tooth profile of the winding barrel’s center can provide the best 20 ° angle pressure, which helps to improve the gear transmission efficiency, and can offset the meshing deviation of the gear, thereby ensuring good torque transmission and significantly improving its performance .
Clockwork box cover is secured with eccentric screws
This feature guarantees that the barrel cover remains stable even when subjected to strong stress.
Case and bridge plate with five grade titanium alloy spline screws

TPT® quartz case
The front and rear bezels of the RM 27-03 are made of TPT® quartz. This unprecedented breakthrough material was designed and developed jointly by RICHARD MILLE and North Thin Ply Technology.
TPT® quartz is composed of multiple parallel filaments separated by silica. Fiber layers up to 45 microns thick are dipped in an exclusive yellow or red resin developed specifically for RICHARD MILLE, and then inserted into the TPT® carbon fiber layer and the fibers between each layer through a special automated control system Staggered at a 45 ° angle.
Then, in a similar device for an autoclave that manufactures parts for the aviation industry, after heating to 120 degrees Celsius under a pressure of 6 bar, the material can be sent to the manufacturing factory of RICHARD MILLE and processed by CNC machine tools. After mechanical processing, each layer of TPT® quartz material is randomly peeled off to form a special texture, making each case processed into a unique work. Quartz fiber has high temperature resistance and high strength, so it is used in high-performance equipment.
The complete case is equipped with two nitrile O-ring seals to ensure water resistance at a depth of 50 meters, and is assembled by 12 grade 5 titanium alloy spline screws and 316L stainless steel washers.
Case Grade 5 Titanium Spline Screw
Use this type of screw to better control screw torque during assembly. It will not be damaged during assembly and disassembly, so it is durable.

Exquisite Workmanship And Precision Technology Iwc Schaffhausen Establishes New Watchmaking Center

IWC Schaffhausen has established a new watchmaking center, integrating traditional watchmaking skills with cutting-edge craftsmanship and technology. The production of movement components and cases is ensured by means of an ultra-advanced turning and milling machining center, which guarantees excellent levels of quality and precision. The assembly of the main movement depends on careful and careful manual work. Only the hands of an experienced watchmaker can make a watch’s mechanical heart beat.

   IWC’s new watchmaking centre is located on the outskirts of Schaffhausen, Switzerland, and construction has been completed in just 21 months. Approaching this building, people will immediately understand the brand’s ‘good and bad’ intentions: this is an out-of-the-box ‘monument’ created by the watchmaker for itself-by design, it has the majestic monument In essence, its birth coincides with the 150th anniversary of the brand’s birthday. The black pane glass façade and the white flat roof above the building façade together constitute a contrasting visual impact picture. ‘Our founder, Florentine Ariosto Jones, began to combine traditional watchmaking skills with advanced production techniques as early as 1868. Since then, we have continued to carry out this engineering concept he pioneered Systematic evolution; to this day, in our new watchmaking center, we are still committed to practicing this ingenious fusion of exquisite craftsmanship and precision technology. Of course, the role of this new building is not limited to providing excellent production conditions And working environment-it also carries the soul of the IWC brand, it opens the door to guests all over the world, giving people the opportunity to experience up close how our self-made movements and watch cases are produced. ‘, IWC CEO Christoph Grainger-Herr said.

   In the new watchmaking center, IWC has realized the centralized production of movement components, main movements and watch cases under the same roof-a milestone in the company’s history. For Andreas Voll, the chief operating officer of IWC, the seed that represents a long-term hope has finally come to fruition: ‘This new building gives us the opportunity to accurately deploy the production process to reach Optimal state to ensure its smooth operation and excellent quality. For example, from raw materials to individual movement components to finished movements-this entire value creation process is deployed on the same floor in a logical order. This is from 2007 Since joining IWC in 2015, it has never changed. ‘

Advanced technology with extraordinary accuracy

IWC’s new watchmaking center-movement parts production workshop

   Through the magnificent 9-meter-high entrance hall, you can directly enter the movement component manufacturing workshop. About 1,500 parts are produced here for the following movement series: Type 52 and 82 automatic winding movements, Type 59 manual winding movements, and Type 69 chronograph movements. Including complex parts such as the movement base plate, bridge and oscillating weight, as well as small parts such as switching levers, clockwork or positioning elements. Some small parts are almost invisible to the naked eye. The department’s mission also includes producing components for complex devices such as perpetual calendars, almanacs and tourbillons.

   Mechanical watches are complex and sophisticated mechanical devices, with hundreds of parts running and performing functions. Therefore, its requirements on accuracy are extremely high. ‘Take the bottom plate of Type 52 as an example. After the milling process, the bottom plate of the movement must have about 400 geometric features, and the minimum production tolerance is only a few thousandths of a millimeter,’ explained Voll. This is why most of the production steps involved in the movement components are automated. Only advanced, computer-controlled turning and milling centers are capable of producing standards-compliant components.
   Taking the 52-type movement as an example, the bottom plate is milled by a highly modern machining center, which can clamp multiple brass blanks at a time. The tools and machining positions can be changed automatically with exceptional precision. Feeding of raw materials and picking up of finished parts are done by articulated robots.

Dedicated electroplating workshop for professional surface modification
   The movement components are subjected to surface processing in the electroplating shop to achieve the desired surface modification effect. ‘The core task here is to prevent corrosion and create a glamorous look. For example, a nickel-rhodium alloy protective layer prevents the brass components from oxidizing to produce patina and tarnish, while giving the components a silvery white color,’ said Volll. The production process for engraved movement parts is particularly complicated. Taking the spring splint as an example, the first step is to plate it as a whole, and then apply a coating process on the engraved picture / text. After the Geneva corrugation is added, the parts are placed in a plating bath with rhodium plating, any remaining coating is cleaned up, and the engraved pictures / text will shine golden luster.

Meticulous manual assembly

IWC’s new watchmaking center-movement assembly

   The transition from movement component production to movement assembly is seamless. The production of movement components is highly automated, while movement assembly is a delicate operation that must be done manually. No machine is capable of assembling such a complicated mechanical device, and only a human hand can bring the cold machinery to life. The first is the pre-assembly stage. First, the splint and the bridge (the two together constitute the blank) and many other parts are assembled together to form a device. Then, these pre-assembled devices are sent to the assembly line together with various prepared components. It is on these assembly lines that the movements are finally formed, such as the 52 and 69 self-assembly cores. Into.

   We have developed a ‘dedicated assembly line’ concept for the assembly of movements, which is based on the visionary ideas of Mr. F.A. Jones and has been further deepened. The specific method is to split the original unified assembly program, thereby forming different subprograms, and then to equip each subprogram with a professional expert with professional skills. ‘We split the assembly process that was originally shared by different series of movements, and then reorganized them into different dedicated assembly lines, which allows us to maximize the optimization of different quality standards,’ Voll said of the key advantages. Our employees have also developed an innovative refueling machine that can precisely lubricate up to dozens of refueling points in the movement.

IWC’s new watchmaking center-clean room for assembly of movements

   Even traces of dust or dirt can impair the performance of the movement. Therefore, component assembly operations are performed in a clean room environment, where conditions are comparable to computer chip production environments. The air circulation volume reaches 50,000 cubic meters per hour. The pressure in this environment is higher than atmospheric pressure, making it more difficult for dust particles to penetrate.
‘Masters’ in case production

 IWC’s new watchmaking center-case production workshop

   The case production department is located in the basement of the watchmaking center. Stainless steel, titanium, platinum, red gold, platinum and bronze cases are produced here. Since its establishment in the 1980s, IWC has accumulated a wealth of professional skills and is quite good at processing difficult case materials. The latest material innovation from Schaffhausen IWC is Ceratanium®: ‘This breakthrough innovative case material combines the strength and lightness of titanium with the rigidity and scratch resistance of ceramics,’ explained Volll Say.

   The case alone contains a large number of parts. If you add functions such as a rotating bezel or chronograph button, the number of parts can be increased to dozens or more at once. The machining process of the blank is customized by computer-controlled turning and milling centers. A one-meter-long bar can process 30 to 50 cases, depending on the material and case type. The milling process alone takes hours. Taking the platinum case of the Portuguese series of super complicated watches as an example, the production process is extremely time-consuming because of the difficult processing of materials and the complex geometric shapes.

   The processed case then enters the surface processing stage and undergoes polishing. After that, the final cleaning and final inspection steps are performed in a clean room environment again, which are all delicate manual operations. ‘Only the human eye has the ability to assess surface quality,’ Voll said.
Complex process methods make experts more sophisticated
   When decorating the case back, in addition to engraving and etching with a machine, laser engraving is also used. This advanced process not only has excellent implementation reliability and stability, but also opens up more new possibilities for engraving design.
   Our case experts are proficient in a range of ultra-complex, demanding machining methods, such as diamond turning. This processing method is mainly applied to red gold or bronze materials. Specially cut diamonds compress the material while cutting it. For example, the red-gold case of the Portuguese series chronographs will therefore acquire a distinctive luster.

The Flight Watch Is Pursuing The Atmosphere Graham Chronofighter Grand Vintage

GRAHAM This watch has a 47mm case, an enlarged window, and the iconic ‘start-stop’ trigger-Chronofighter Grand Vintage watch: To make ‘big’, it seriously. There are a total of four stunning and modern pieces of the watch in 2018-thus, the history of military aviation watches since the 1940s has reached a new height. They can be called time capsules, relying on superb professional skills to create simplicity and elegance, which closely connects history with the present.

Chronofighter was inspired by the early military flight watch. The case’s characteristic timing button not only looks eye-catching, but also has thoughtful considerations that are convenient for the wearer to operate with his thumb.

The trigger on the left-hand side of the case is like a bridge between nostalgia and modernity. Originally designed here for easy thumb operation in the cockpit, it now enables smooth operation of chronograph functions on land-whether stationary or at high speed. At the same time, the tight cuffs of the once-popular flight leather jacket may have been replaced by brand new shirt sleeves, but the advantage of fast operation always exists. The Chronofighter Grand Vintage watch has strength in detail. The arched sapphire mirror integrates a magnifying glass for the date display at 9 o’clock, and the large window helps to improve readability and also makes the watch more dynamic. The case back is made of transparent sapphire crystal, which provides excellent visual effects regardless of weather conditions.

The new 2018 models are available in four-color faceplates such as blue, brown, silver or black, and can also be paired with rubber straps or leather straps to show the style of movement.

Four new members of the Chronofighter series have joined the Grand Vintage army. Including blue, brown, silver or black faceplates, the nostalgic inspiration is transcended into the time, keeping up with the trend. A sporty rubber strap, presented in black or green and featuring a distinctive Milanese grid pattern, is a vibrant new addition to the collection. An optional blue calfskin strap is available for classics. What really made the past alive is the Swiss G1747 self-winding chronograph movement, equipped with an Incabloc shock absorber and a 48-hour power reserve. Although the source of creativity is still in the air, it does not prevent the waterproof ability of 100 meters) from boarding.
