While the RM 21-02 concept and movement were introduced in 2009, the 2023 version takes a more contemporary direction with advanced materials.
The design closely resembles the 2022 limited-edition model but with a white Quartz TPT caseback and a multi-component bezel in Carbon TPT and white Quartz TPT segments.The watch includes a white rubber strap with black inlays, maintaining the black and white theme throughout.
The winding crown, with a titanium button, acts as a function selector switch for modes like winding, setting, and neutral.The dial layout retains the classic features with skeletonized hands, Arabic numeral markers, and a tourbillon at 6 o'clock.
Additional features include power reserve and torque indicators, providing insight into the watch's accuracy based on mainspring tension.
The mainplate is crafted from HAYNES 214, known for extreme stiffness and resistance to high temperatures.Powering the watch is the Caliber RM21-02 manual-wind movement, operating at 21,600vph with a 70-hour power reserve.
