Richard Mille Debuts RM UP-01 Ferrari World’s Thinnest Mechanical Watch

Pioneering watchmaker Richard Mille has taken the horological game to new lengths, unveiling the world’s thinnest mechanical wristwatch. The all-new RM UP-01 Ferrari features a 51mm case crafted completely from lightweight Grade 5 Titanium, achieving a .05mm slimmer design from Bulgari’s previous record-breaking Octo Finissimo Ultra.

According to Richard Mille, the new RM UP-01 Ferrari features hours, minutes, seconds, and a function selector, all housed within the delicate design. The movement with an entirely new ultra-flat escapement was developed with Audemars Piguet Le Locle, formerly known as Renaud et Papi. Calibre RM UP-01, it offers 45-hour power reserve, is water-resistant up to 10m and can withstand shocks of 5,000g.

A futuristic dial layout beautifully displays Ferrari’s prancing horse just below the open tourbillon, highlighting its extensive functions through a subtly minimalistic design. While twin-turbocharged V8 and naturally-aspirated V12 engines drive Ferrari models, the RM UP-01 Ferrari generates its power from a newly engineered in-house RMUP-01 manual-winding movement. Both adjustment and winding of the watch is handled via two cassette tape-style integrated crowns, one for function selection, exposed on the dial while two sapphire crystals just 0.2mm thick cover the time indicator and the regulating organ.

Limited to 150 pieces, the RM UP-01 Ferrari will be $1.888M USD when it arrives. Discover Opulent Club on Apple news.
