Drawing inspiration from the McLaren Speedtail, Richard Mille reveals the RM 40-01 Automatic Tourbillon McLaren Speedtail. Borrowing design elements from the Speedtail, the 69-piece titanium and Carbon TPT case took over 18 months to create with a shape that mimics the form of a water droplet. Of course, the details don't end there as the casing department applied mirror polished, plain, and satin finishes throughout.
The complexity is multiplied with the watch's in-house movement, which required 8,600 hours of development and features the brand's first in-house developed power reserve display, oversize date, and function selector complications on an in-house tourbillon. It also features a baseplate and bridges made out of grade 5 titanium and a variable-geometry rotor that helps wind the watch to achieve a power reserve of 50 hours.
