RICHARD MILLE - RM020 Table Clock Pocket Watch
After years of research and development， Richard Mille， one of the most cutting-edge watch brands， has successfully created a non-metallic carbon nanofibre baseplate. This amorphous material has highly stable mechanical， physical and chemical properties， and can even resist the intense friction generated from racing vehicles， ensuring the movement can run smoothly despite the change of environmental factors. Richard Mille later applied this material to this lot RM 020 tourbillon pocket watch， displaying the combination of classic timepieces and revolutionary technology， once again breaking through the boundaries of watchmaking materials.
The gigantic titanium case of RM 020 with an ultra-modern shape is 62mm long and 52 mm wide. Richard Mille adopts an open-faced design for the dial and equips a manual-winding movement for the pocket watch. There are irregular patterns on the carbon nanofibre baseplate but the timepiece itself is neat and orderly. The one-minute tourbillon carriage and power reserve indicator can been seen from 6 and 9 o’clock directions respectively. The functions indicator at 4 o’clock mimics the different gears positions when driving a race car， users can switch among W (winding)， N (neutral) and H (handsetting) in three different modes freely by pressing the crown. Additionally， the ARCAP components connecting the baseplate and the bridges also have non-magnetic， corrosion-resistant properties and extremely high strectchability. They secure the movement and avoid any impact of vibration and collision. Two symmetrical directly engaged winding barrels can be seen from the transparent case back， which provide around 10 days of power， showing full practicality of the timepiece.
Fantastically， RM 020 functions as a tourbillon pocket watch with an impressive fob chain that is easy to carry around. When placing it on a specially designed stand， it becomes a distinctive table clock， showing the attentive thoughts and exquisite craftsmanship of Richard Mille.
