Three world-class athletes and three versions of the new RM 67-02. Powered by the brand’s seventh in-house calibre, this is Richard Mille’s lightest automatic watch at just 32 grams, strap included.

Thin, lightweight, coloured, elegant and athletic, the RM 67-02 is the watch for any situation. Breaking with precedent, Richard Mille designed this model so that it can be adapted to various sporting disciplines. This is why several of the brand’s partners have had developed an RM 67-02 in the colours of their respective countries, so as to test the abilities of this automatic calibre in a range of settings beyond the athletics track.

With the tennisman, Alexander Zverev, the RM 67-02 will now enter a new battlefield. With Alexander now ranked no. 3 in the world, testing the resistance of his RM 67-02 in Carbon TPT® and red Quartz TPT® when faced with repeated accelerations, tennis courts around the globe will become natural laboratories. While the RM 67-02 issued to fellow brand partner Alexis Pinturault must withstand the harsh cold of the ski slopes and the shocks received against the gates, a variation designed for five-time World Rally champion, Sébastien Ogier, will join him along the varied stages of the Argentinian Rally. All of these models preserve the mechanical beauty of the CRMA7 calibre, combining the grade 5 titanium of the baseplate and bridges with the white gold and Carbon TPT® of the variable-geometry rotor, as well as the exceptional finishes.

Beyond the comfort of the strap and the resistance of the case milled from TPT® composites, these watches boast aesthetically polished renditions of each sports figure’s flag, easily visible across the hand-painted grade 5 titanium dial. For superlative wearing enjoyment of the RM 67-02, Richard Mille has equipped these timepieces with their new ‘comfort’ strap. Entirely seamless, the strap is highly elastic, allowing it to perfectly fit the contours of each wrist, adapting to individual morphology. Two unique prototypes of the RM 67-02 are currently touring the Formula 1 circuits. Worn by rookie Charles Leclerc and Fernando Alonso, they both allow the brand to test new technical solutions for its future models.
