Bezel and caseback in Quartz TPT - Caseband in Carbon TPT- Bridges hand-painted in the colours of the French flag
The cases of the RM 67-02 are made from Quartz TPT and Carbon TPT. These materials, which possess a remarkable damascene appearance, are composed of layers of parallel filaments obtained from separating silica and carbon threads.
Quartz fibres are generally used for very high-performance applications due to their resistance to high temperatures, their strength and their transparency to electromagnetic waves. These fibres are specifically aligned in layers no thicker than 45 microns and saturated in resins developed specially for Richard Mille. These layers are then stacked using an automatic positioning system that changes the orientation of the fibre between each layer by 45°. After being heated to 120°C and subjected to a pressure of 6 bars, they are machined on a CNC machine at Richard Mille’s manufacturing facility. Carbon TPT is made by an identical process, but from carbon threads.
The complete case construction is water-resistant to 30 metres thanks to two Nitrile O-ring seals and is assembled with 12 spline screws in grade 5 titanium and 316L stainless steel washers.
With its satin-finished, bevelled hands and sharp lines, the calibre CRMA7 actively conveys a sense of power and strength. The dial, whose lines echo those of the movement, is machined from a sheet of titanium only four tenths of a millimetre thick. Treated with a black DLC coating, it is then painted by hand in the colours of the Richard Mille partner’s flag.

Thickness: 0.40mm
For superlative wearing enjoyment of the RM 67-02, Richard Mille has equipped this timepiece with its new comfort strap.
Entirely seamless and non-slip, the strap is highly elastic, allowing it to perfectly fit the contours of each wrist’s individual morphology.
