Richard Mille at Le Mans Classic 2016

29 August 2016

By Scott Campbell

The 8th edition of Le Mans Classic took place from 8 to 10 July on the renowned Bugatti circuit under the vestiges of Richard Mille, principal partner and official timekeeper for the competition.

Celebrating 80 years of automobile racing history, Le Mans Classic welcomed the cars and drivers responsible for the legendary standing of the world's most famous race.

A partner of the event since its inception in 2002, Richard Mille celebrated the Le Mans Classic by creating a new watch for each edition of the race.

This year, the brand unveiled the RM 11-02 Le Mans Classic, an automatic calibre in grade 5 titanium incorporating a variable-geometry rotor, annual calendar, UTC display, 24-hour flyback chronograph and countdown feature. 

The RM 11-02 Le Mans Classic bears the colours of the historic competition not only on the movement, but also on its white ATZ ceramic caseband and the rubber collar of its NTPT carbon crown.

From the design of its pushers, with grooves that bring to mind the surface of vintage pedals, to the meticulously precision-machined crown reminiscent of a clutch mechanism by way of its baseplate, ribbed like an engine crankcase, the RM 11-02, a limited edition of 150 pieces, is imbued with a passion for automobiles.

The Le Mans Classic logo appears on the dial at 12 o’clock along with the number ‘16’, an allusion to the start time of the endurance race.
