Watch is 100% guaranteed to be authentic and as described.
No other watch manufacturer departs so much from the traditional techniques of watchmaking. Unveiled to the world in 2001, the RM 001 Tourbillon broke from watchmaking tradition. From its avante-garde design, to its innovative use of materials and manufacturing processes the RM 001 stunned the watch world. Now well into the RM series, Richard Mille continues to produce racing-inspired time pieces of unique design.
The torque indicator supplies information about the tension of the mainspring, and allows the optimization of the chronometric functioning of the movement.

Watch Chronograph: The user can start or stop the chronograph function via the pusher located on the lower left at 8. The hands are reset by pressing another pusher located on the upper left at 10. One of the new characteristics developed for the RM 008-V2 is the almost complete elimination of initial jumping in the chronograph seconds hand. A great number of studies led to the design and manufacture of gear wheels and levers in titanium, thus reducing inertia. Moreover, the development of a new generation of split seconds components meant that energy consumption could be lowered by approximately 50% by reducing friction on the spindle, as well as eliminating the effect of jumping when stopping, thanks in particular to research that focused on the working of the split seconds arms. Simply by pressing the pusher on the right (at 4), the user can stop the split seconds hand in order to read an intermediate time while the chronograph is engaged. Pressing the pusher again allows the split seconds hand to rejoin the chronograph hand.
