Notes

The RM014 was inspired by the extraordinary sailing vessels of the Perini Navi yacht builders. Elements of the design clearly have a nautical influence. The crown is a true representation of a sailing winch, the hands, tourbillon and barrel bridges, as well as other aspects, also pay homage to the vessels created by Perini Navi.
