Richard Mille celebrates the return of Le Mans with a new limited edition racing watch

The Le Mans Classic is coming back next year after a pandemic-induced hiatus, and luxury watchmaker Richard Mille is celebrating the eighth limited-edition piece by the high-end designer to commemorate the race with this eye-catching new sporty watch.

Le Mans is scheduled for July 2022. Next year will also mark Richard Milles’s Le Mans sponsorship for the 20th time, with 700 historic racing cars competing on the lesser-known Bugatti Circuit.

Only 150 of Mille’s new RM 029 Automatic Le Mans Classics will hit the market.

Milles watches were in demand – at least in part – because of the designer’s unique approach, which is the opposite of the fussy minimalism seen in products made by older watchmakers. The Le Mans Classic is no exception, because it comes in a striking, white-striped green case.

Like most Mille watches, the Classic is also a masterpiece of microtechnology, equipped with the designer’s Quartz TPT (Thin Ply Technology), which combines microscopic carbon fiber plates with quartz fibers.

Richard Mille machined a block of white quartz TPT to make the main body of the case. The panels are made of the same material. The most important design features, which act as a visual highlight for Le Mans, are double Le Mans stripes, which are also made of white quartz TPT and are inlaid on the green bezel – a Mille design first.

Additional features and specifications include:

  • An oversized date display at the 4 o’clock position
  • Thanks to two nitrile O-rings, the case is waterproof up to 50 meters
  • Body composed of materials such as grade 5 titanium
  • 32 jewel movement
  • Spindle with three positions for manual winding, time setting and date setting
  • Ceramic ball bearings
  • Anti-clockwise winding direction
  • Skeletonized, ultra-light RMAS7 movement
  • 55 hours power reserve
  • A variable geometry rotor made of 18-carat white gold

Again, only 150 of the RM 029 Automatic Winding Le Mans Classic are sold and this model costs $ 176,000. Learn more here:
