The watchmakers thought of revamping the RM-11. It was challenging for them, but they had gotten good customer feedback on some of their previous RM models that led the way to some of the evolution seen in RM 11-03.

This model has become the mainstay of the brand's ever-growing collection. However, being an icon watch also implies that they are often copied or serve as an inspiration to other brands.

Investing in Richard Mille's timepieces is a worthy and timeless thing to do. This unique watch is made with carbon and the most delicate interlaced orange Quartz. The Mclaren color combination of the watch enhances the physical appearance.

The watch pretty much depicts the Mclaren, not only in color. The RM 11-03 features a distinctive similarity to the Mclaren's wheel, adding a high-grade five titanium crown and featured wheel shape.

The size of the case is measured at 49.94 x 44.50 mm and is a tonneau shape. The surface area is around 16.23 mm with a titanium crown.

According to them, this watch changes the perception of a mere dial with sn inscription. Finally, the duo made comparisons and discussed how this watch is similar to Mclaren.

A fan spotted Odell Beckham Jr during the season-opening match against the Tennessee titans. He was wearing the RM11-03 watch on his wrist. It was a rare move for an athlete to sport a watch of that caliber during a contact sport. Although his team ended with a loss at the time, his playing hand was still a winner.

The watch is driven by a movement unlike any other that can be admired on both sides through anti-reflective coated sapphire crystals.

The new automatic RMAC3 caliber emphasizes its three-dimensional architecture with glossy beveled rims around the colored counters of the flyback chronograph and seconds.

The display of dates is a bit oversized of the annual calendar paired with an automatic adjustment for the months of 30 and 31. It is beautifully caged into an outlined horizontal aperture under noon. A small month display is placed between 4 and 5 o'clock.

The depth is highlighted even more by an upper bridge. The satin-like brushed grade 5 titanium that compliments the movement is also made of titanium but with a PVD coating.

However, you'll find the double-barrel mechanism on the back that ensures a power reserve of 55 hours.

The 4 Hz (28,800 vph) free-sprung balance is highly resistant to shocks and can be tuned more precisely than a traditional balance wheel.
