Alain Prost is an artist in the name of speed, as Richard Mille is an artist of time measurement. The brand’s collaboration with the four-time Formula One World Champion and co-founder of the Renault e.dams team is based on unswerving loyalty. Time measurement has always been one of the most important things in Alain’s career.
The brand new RM70-01 Tourbillon caliber with an unprecedented odometer is the perfect connection between the branches. This complicated mechanism took a long time of development and precious work.
The 70-hour running reserve of the Tourbillon handrail is indicated by an indicator at 5 o’clock, which is controlled by a planetary gear. It has a baseplate and bridges made of grade 5 titanium. Thanks to the extreme power of titanium, the caliber can withstand even the most impassable paths. Its unique, streamlined and arched shapes not only ensure maximum comfort on the right wrist, but also provide optimal readability of the time when the hand rests on the handlebar. As always, the function defines the form.
In order to fully utilize the dynamic and mechanical qualities of the RM 70-01, each purchaser receives a customized road bike as a gift. These individually numbered bicycles, developed by Alain Prost and Richard Mille in partnership with the prestigious Italian bicycle manufacturer Colnago, are made by hand and are painted in the colors of the watch mark.
