The latest iteration of the Richard Mille’s bestselling model is the RM 011 Ceramic NTPT Flyback Chronograph Asia Limited Edition, introduced to mark the opening of the brand’s new store in Singapore.
Unveiled alongside the opening of Richard Mille‘s latest store, located inside Resorts World Sentosa (RWS) in Singapore, the RM 011 Ceramic NTPT Asia Limited Edition is primarily red and white, with a sprinkling of blue accents on the dial. As is typical of all tonneau-shaped Richard Mille watches, the RM 011 Ceramic NTPT Asia Limited Edition has a sandwich case construction, comprising a front and back in white ceramic, with the case band in between made of NTPT carbon. North Thin Ply Technology (NTPT) is a company that produces a particular form of carbon fibre reinforced polymer that offers superior strength due to its construction. When used in a watch, the material has a decorative, woodgrain-like pattern due to the layering of the carbon fibre.
Materials aside the RM 011 Ceramic NTPT Asia Limited Edition is identical to the stock RM 011, with a Vaucher automatic movement with a Dubois-Depraz chronograph module featuring a flyback and annual calendar.
