Richard Mille showed off the new RM 11-04 automatic flyback chronograph Roberto Mancini, developed in cooperation with the current manager of the Italian national football team.
The new model reproduces the RM 11-01 Roberto Mancini released in 2013. The idea is to create a mechanical watch with a dedicated dial to track the time of football matches.
The dial shows the game time based on two 45-minute half-times and a maximum of 15 minutes of stoppage time.
The user can start or stop the chronograph function with the button located between 1 o’clock and 2 o’clock. Pressing the button at 4 o’clock will activate the flyback function and reposition the hands at 12 o’clock, ready to start the second half. If you get extra time, you can reactivate the flyback function so that the watch displays 15 minutes of extra game time and up to 5 minutes of stoppage time.
RM 11-04 incorporates Richard Mille’s latest style codes, such as the new crown lines, variable geometry rotors and carbon TPT ultra-sports case with raised scallops. The case size is 49.94 mm x 44.50 mm x 16.15 mm. Thanks to two nitrile rubber O-ring seals, the case is water-resistant to 50 meters/165 feet.
These colors are a tribute to the Italian flag (green, white and red) and the light blue jersey used by the Italian football team, nicknamed “Azzurri”.
With simultaneous, minute, second and flyback chronographs, the hollow self-winding Calibre RMAC3 also provides power for the annual calendar, with a large date window at 12 o’clock, and a smaller date window at 4 o’clock and 5 o’clock. The month is displayed. For months with 30 or 31 days, the date is automatically adjusted.
When the chronograph is running, the movement provides approximately 55 hours (± 10%) or 45 hours of power reserve. The double barrel system helps to improve torque stability over a longer period of time. This is achieved by distributing the stored energy into two barrels instead of one, thereby reducing pressure and friction on the teeth, bearings and pivots, thereby improving long-term performance.

The free-spring balance wheel with variable inertia ensures higher reliability in the event of impact and during assembly and disassembly of the movement, resulting in better timing results over time. Due to the 4 small adjustable weights directly on the balance, no regulator indicator is required, allowing for more accurate and repeatable adjustments.
The rotor with variable geometry is designed to optimize its winding movement. This solution allows the rewinding of the mainspring to be most effectively adapted to the user’s activity level. By adjusting the setting of the rib position, the inertia of the rotor is modified to speed up the winding process when the arm is moving at a leisurely pace, or to slow down the winding process when performing sports activities. The rotor is made of titanium with 18K white gold weights. best replica watches uk
