RM 015 Perini Navi Cup

    The RM 015 Perini Navi Cup marine tourbillon, inspired by the famous Maltese Falcon sailing yacht created for Tom Perkins, uses the same carbon nano-fiber material for its baseplate as the legendary RM 006, and it combines a tourbillon with second-time-zone function. Like its counterpart, the RM 014, there are indicators for power reserve and torque, as well as the specially developed Richard Mille gearbox system functioning via a push button in the crown. Many details of the movement such as the winding crown, the various bridges for the tourbillon, winding barrel, and gear train are all inspired by the stainless-steel details that are a signature of the Italian boat builder Perini Navi. It’s available 18-karat red or white gold, or platinum.
