Collaboration with the luxury industry is useful to improve both company’ products.

Richard Mille chooses to collaborate with the famous Formula 1 manufacturer Mc Laren.

From this collaboration, was born the RM 50-03 chronograph, which is the lightest mechanical chronograph in the world.

This new caliber created by Richard Mille’s offers some outstanding mechanical performance never seen before!


Thanks to this successful collaboration with the University of Manchester, McLaren Applied Technologies and North Thin Ply Technology, Richard Mille was successful in producing a housing machined in an improved TPTTM Carbon.

Weighing less than 40 grams with its new bracelet, this performance was achieved thanks to high-tech materials put at the service of an aerial architecture. As proof, the introduction to the titanium and carbon TPTTM of a new material for a case: the Graph TPTTM.


Only 75 copies of the RM 50-03 Mc Laren F1 will be available in some of the Richard Mille’s shops. Each precious watch will be delivered with a 1: 5 replica of the 2017 McLaren F1 driven by double world champion Fernando Alonso and Stoffel Vandoorne.
