It wouldn’t be a book Richard Mille Watches Mclaren Replica sports opinion with no tourbillon, which the RM 70-10 is not missing. The manually-wound 3Hz tourbillon-escapement caliber RM07-01 movement has 70 hours of power reserve and suggests precisely the time. Most of the movement architecture is generated from titanium, and its appeal is very much in the design. Again, this watch is supposed to be the prestigious super high-end lifestyle sports watch maker’s first foray into the world of biking (which, mind you, is only modestly tapped by the luxury watch business now), so it needed to be as on-theme as possible.Richard Mile actually took inspiration from bike pedals to the design of this movement — which you can kind of see. The movement offers only the moment, but also has a discreet power reserve indicator near the tourbillon. The “Mechanical Odometer” is technically its own system and can measure up to 99,999 Km (or whatever else you’d like the numbers to represent).On the wrist, the Richard Mile RM 70-01 Alain Prost is not something I’ve yet seen, but the curved case looks compelling. It is produced from Carbon TPT, which provides that cool Damascus steel-style organic layered look. This is because, like layered steel, this instance is machined pieces of layered carbon. The titanium case is 49.48mm broad, 54.88mm tall, and 17.65mm thick. This is not the first asymmetric Richard Mille watch (I think one of those Yohan Blake models was), but the RM 70-01 is unquestionably the first that’ll catch most people’s attention.
