On the occasion of the classic car event Le Mans Classic, Richard Mille launched a limited special edition RM 029 Automatic Le Mans Classic. The event is co-founded by the manufacturers and is held near Le Mans, France, every two years. The watch celebrates the return of the event in 2022 and is therefore equipped with a green and white case-the color of the event. However, this watch also provides several other references to the car and the impressive mechanic under the hood.
The Le Mans Classic is usually held every two years in July at the famous 24 heures du Mans venue. In this race co-founded by Richard Mille, drivers from all over the world will compete with classic racing cars. The car must be at least 40 years old. Since the first edition in 2002, swiss Richard Mille has launched seven special models specially designed for this event. The RM 029 Le Mans Classic is the eighth watch that celebrates motorsports.
The case and materials of the RM 029 Automatic Le Mans Classic
Richard Mille RM 029 Le Mans Classic uses a three-piece 40.10 x 48.15 x 13.10 mm case. The white middle part is composed of a solid block of white quartz TPT. This material is composed of hundreds of layers of interwoven quartz fibers that form a unique pattern after heating. The front and rear baffles are made of green quartz TPT at the same time, and are fixed in the middle part with screws. Two white stripes are embedded on the top-a tribute to the colors of the racing event. copy watches for men

The RMAS7 movement powers the watch. The automatic winding system provides energy for the two barrels. Together, they provide a power reserve of approximately 55 hours. At the same time, the variable geometry rotor allows the winding speed to be adjusted according to the wearer’s activity level. Elsewhere, free spring screw balance ensures reliability. The latter operates at a typical frequency of 4 Hz.
