Richard Mille launches Flaming Red RM 011 TPT Quartz made of carbon-silica-quartz composite material Richard Mille (Richard Mille) continues to use unusual composite materials for the watch case, launching the RM 011 TPT Quartz, which is made of a bright red composite material that is a mixture of carbon, silica and quartz.
Exotic composite materials are Richard Mille’s spot, the new RM 011 TPT Quartz is an example. The entire case of the RM 011 TPT Quartz presents a very bright red. It is the first watch to use a carbon-silica-quartz composite material, which is light, hard and unusually red. This composite material was developed by North Thin Ply Technology (NTPT), a composite material specialist that typically manufactures parts for automobiles and aircraft. First used in the RM 27-02 Rafael Nadal tourbillon, TPT Quartz is made of carbon sheet with a silicon dioxide layer in the middle to form a wood grain pattern. Quartz is mixed to give the material a smooth surface, while the resin is used as a binder for the material, baked in an autoclave, and then processed into shape.
Except for the case material, the rest of the RM 011 TPT Quartz is the same as the RM 011. This is a self-winding chronograph with a flyback function and a large date display. RM 011 TPT quartz limited edition.
