Today’s Haute Time pick for Watch of the Day is The RM 11-01 Automatic Flyback Chronograph Roberto Mancini. This timepiece is a wonderful collaboration between championship soccer player and Manchester City team Manager, Roberto Mancini and Richard Mille. The RM 11-01 was originally designed to aid Mancini during soccer matches, timing both halves as well as any extra time or stoppage time that remains at the end of a soccer match.
Richard Mille accomplished this by creating the RM 11-01, a timepiece which measures match times based on two 45-minute halves, one on each side of the dial, along with up to an additional 15-minutes of stoppage time. Powered by a Caliber RMAC1 automatic winding movement with hours, minutes, seconds, flyback chronograph, central minutes counter, 12-hour totalizer and annual calendar, the RM 11-01 delivers. Housed in a 50.00 x 42.70 titanium case, the Cliber RMAC1 movement features roughly a 50-hour power reserve, with sapphire crystal and case back.
Shown here on a black rubber strap with titanium pin buckle, the RM 11-01 Automatic Flyback Chronograph Roberto Mancini by Richard Mille is water-resistant to 50 meters.
