RM 011 SPA Classic

Richard Mille, official partner of the SPA Classic - 24 - 26 May 2013

The Watch Quote™ - March 8th, 2013

On 24, 25 and 26 May, the third Spa Classic will take place in Belgium on the prestigious Spa-Francorchamps circuit. For the first time, Richard Mille will be the Official Partner and Timekeeper of this exceptional sporting event.

In 1921, the Spa track was designed to be one of the fastest and most spectacular tracks in the world. It has changed over the years, going from 8.8 miles (14,120 km) to 4.3 miles (7,004 km) and now features 15 corners, including the famous Raidillon-Eau Rouge where F1 drivers pass at speeds approaching 190 mph trough a barely visible sequence of corners.

This rolling track will host a spectacular competition, which pits motoring enthusiasts against each other in a range of categories: the two CER groups, the Group C, the Sixties’ Endurance, the Trofeo Nastro Rosso, the Spa-Classic Jubilee (open to Porsche 911 cars in celebration of the model’s 50th birthday), the Historic Formula 2 championship, and two Touring grids recalling the glorious 24 Hours of Francorchamps race.

Richard Mille will mark the occasion by releasing an RM 011 Spa Classic, a limited edition of 50 pieces. The automatic caliber is equipped with a flyback chronograph with countdown timer, an annual calendar and a rotor with variable geometry. The colours of the event are featured on the blue carbon fiber upper flange and the red and white lower flange. The Spa Classic logo at 12 o’clock together with the red and white chronograph dials contrast with the skeleton movement in PVD-treated grade 5 titanium. For this special edition, the entire case has been microblasted, the case-middle columns polished, and the pusher covers treated with DLC.

After Le Mans, Imola and Pau, the legendary Spa-Francorchamps is the latest track to fly the Richard Mille colours for this unmissable motorsports event.
