Richard Mille's thirst for distinction is apparent in the Extra Flat RM 016 design which uniquely allows the rewinding of the mainspring to be adapted most effectively to the user's activity level, whether in sporting or non-sporting environments. The watch case represents the introduction of a new and distinctive shape into the Richard Mille watch collection. It is a counterpoint to the collection's current themes of motor sport and sailing, reflected in its discreet lines that are the slimmest in the collection, yet with the same wrist-fitting curvature and taper as the rest of the ensemble. It represents a further transformation of the tonneau shape suitable for all occasions. Some of its main features, which are also major technical innovations, are the skeletonized automatic winding movement with hours, minutes and date, and adjustable rotor geometry..
