Limited to just 50 units, the “Yellow Storm” timepiece is the newest iteration to the popular RM 011 Automatic Flyback Chronograph line by Richard Mille. A testament of cutting edge materials, the “Yellow Storm” includes not just ordinary carbon fiber but ones produced through the new NTPT (North Thin Ply Technology) process. Stronger yet thinner than your average carbon fiber, the NTPT process involves over 600 layers of carbon filaments, each lathered in resin before a special machine weave them in sheets. And because the direction of the weft alters during the procedure, the end result is a pattern not unlike wood grains.
Featuring RM’s signature, its skeletonized automatic winding movement with a 60-minute countdown timer, 12-hour totalizer, and annual calendar, the RM 011 Automatic Flyback Chronograph “Yellow Storm” with its vibrant yellow rubber strap is currently available at Richard Mille Beverly Hills and Richard Mille Las Vegas for a retail price of $170,000 USD.
