Davido receive RM 11-03 Le Mans Classic Watch as birthday gift. davido made this known on his official instagram page.
On the backside of the movement, a satin-brushed PVD-treated lower bridge highlights the double-barrel mechanism while the new variable-geometry rotor, made of grade 5 titanium, evokes the aerodynamic designs common in Formula 1 automobiles. This type of rotor, which is exclusive to Richard Mille, allows the watch’s wearer to adjust the automatic winding of the watch to the level of his or her activity by varying its inertia by means of two microblasted and chamfered wings in 18K white gold. Mounted on ceramic ball bearings and made of satin-brushed, PVD-treated titanium, the rotor offers six possible positions. These pushers, in turn, are protected by covers made of NTPT carbon, a material also used commonly in F1 race cars. The watch’s case — available in rose gold, titanium, or a combo of both — is held together by 20 grade 5 titanium spline screws and features a nonreflective sapphire exhibition back that reveals the movement’s many parts and mechanisms. Prices are $115,000 in titanium, $130,000 for titanium and rose gold, and $160,000 in all rose gold.
