Description

The RM 67-02 was launched in 2017, in two variants – The High Jump and The Sprint. Technically it is based on the RM 67-01 Automatic Extra Flat which was launched a year earlier in 2016. As the name suggests, it is the flattest Richard Mille produced till date.

The RM 67-02 honors two athletic legends. The High Jump is made for Mutaz Essa Barshim and is made in Magenta and White. Mutaz is a Qatari track and field athlete, and a national record and Asian record holder with a best mark of 2.43 m. He won a gold medal at the 2017 World Championships in Athletics in London and at the 2019 World Championships in Athletics in Doha. And The Sprint is made in honor of Wayde van Nieker, and comes in Green and Yellow. Wayde is a South African track and field sprinter who competes in the 200 and 400 meters. In the 400 meters, he is the current world and Olympic record holder, and Olympic champion. He also holds the world-best time in the 300 meters.

 

The present reference RM67-02 Wayde van Nieker comes in green and yellow, representing the colors of South Africa. The color scheme continues on the bridges on the dial side, which are hand-painted. An extreme sports model, this is the lightest automatic watch produced by Richard Mille, weighing a mere 32grams including the strap. The case measures 38.7mm x 47.52mm and is 7.8mm thick and is made of a combination of Quartz TPT and Carbon TPT. Result of extreme engineering and collaboration between NTPT and Richard Mille, the innovative case material was first used in the RM27-02 Rafael Nadal back in 2015.

On the inside is the Richard Mille in-house Calibre CRMA7 automatic movement, offering a 50-hr power reserve. The baseplate and the bridges are made in Grade 5 titanium and a pierced Carbon TPT rotor, all incorporated together to maintain the lightweight of this timepiece. As extreme and technical it all may seem, and as with all Richard Mille timepieces, the movement is finished beautifully to the highest standards with beveled edges and hand-polished screw heads.

This extreme sports watch is offered on a green strap.

 

 

Richard Mille – Bio

The company was bought by Matra in 1981 and Richard Mille rose to manage Matra’s watchmaking business, which then included the brands Yema and Cupillard Rième.
