RICHARD MILLE AND FERRARI: MAKING HEARTS BEAT FASTER
At just 1.75 millimeters thick, the RM UP-01 Ferrari constitutes a triumph of technical achievements uncomparable by other brands and exemplifies a new approach to watch mechanics in which technology meets incredibly engineered aesthetics.
Sport inspired watch mechanisms that are as elegant as they are immediately distinguishable from other designs. In 2021, Ferrari and Richard Mille, driven by their shared quest for perfection in their respective fields, joined forces to create a long-term partnership. Richard Mille celebrates this budding relationship with the creation of an exceptional ultra-flat timepiece, the RM UP-01 Ferrari.
What sets the new Richard Mille apart from its competitors, is in the movement’s construction. For the RM UP-01 Ferrari, the watchmaker hand assembled the entire movement (all 1.18mm of it) into the case, as opposed to assembling the case back pull double duty as a baseplate. That decision appears to have saved a few extra millimeters off the final construction and perhaps most impressive of all, that it hasn’t come at the expense of the functionality of the watch.
GRADE 5 TITANIUM
The entire case of the watch is machined from grade 5 titanium, a material offering incredible lightness combined with levels of resistance proven in Richard Mille’s laboratory through a rigorous system of tests. The monobloc construction of the watch also optimizes integrity while guaranteeing water resistance to 1 atm (10 m).
Due to the low profile of the RM UP-01, all the components are machined at the Richard Mille movement department to meet the extremely demanding machining tolerance of a single micron.
The case back and bezel of the watch are satin-finished, with hand-polished polished bevels. The iconic Ferrari trademarked prancing horse and all references to Ferrari are present on the case are laser-engraved. This unique ultra-thin case is assembled by hand using 13 grade 5 titanium spline screws and abrasion-resistant washers in 316L stainless steel.
