- The most astonishing feature is its manual winding movement with hours, minutes and the function selection that measures 1.18mm in thickness. The movement is contained within its case and helps the watch in maintaining a slimmed down structure.
- It holds a power reserve for 45 hours on winding it.
- It is a collaboration between the Swiss watchmaker Richard Mille and the Italian carmaker Ferrari in the year 2021.
- It is available in a limited edition of 150 timepieces.
- Priced at 1.9 million USD.
- It offers 10 m of water resistance.
- Made of made of grade 5 titanium that makes it the toughest watch that can withstand accelerations of over 5,000 Gs.
The engineers created a titanium balance wheel, a unique escapement and safety roller to transfer energy to the balance wheel that ensures the timepiece can endure assembly, disassembly, and exposure to shock or strong vibrations.
This partnership is one of the best collaborations of iconic brands in the world creating aesthetically and technically unique timepiece that is out of this world.
It is dubbed as world’s thinnest manual watch by the makers. No wonder why they choose Carlos Sainz (Spanish), Formula 1 driver for Ferrari ( no 1 driver ) to model this unique watch as it is on par with his performance at GP and speaks volumes about his achievements and makes this timepiece a status symbol with limited edition. The watch dial too is radically different from anything you have ever seen.
