Richard Mille RM 39-01 Aviation E6-B is the latest demonstration of how innovative and special materials like titanium, carbon nanofibers, the orthorhombic titanium aluminide, the ARCAP and tungsten carbide, do always been part of DNA of the brand.
RM 39-01 and a direct descendant of the model RM 039 Aviation, watch with chronograph and tourbillon extremely complicated with flyback function, consisting of about 1,000 items. The movement of the RM 39-01 and was meant to be an instrument of aid in flight.
It ‘a modern interpretation of r egolo E6B calculator, designed in the ’30s in the United States by Lt. Philip Dalton.
The E6B slide rule consists of two lunettes, one fixed and one that can rotate in both directions, engraved with countless indications complex. It can be used to calculate the fuel consumption, flight times, speed to the ground, the air density at different altitudes, the influence of winds and quickly convert different units of measure (knots / km / gallon / l / foot / kg / lbs).
The bezel of Richard Mille RM 39-01 Aviation E6-B is very complex and required a very careful tuning for easy maneuverability combined with excellent visibility during calculations and their results.
The new RM 39-01 provides a practical and rapid time to time in succession in different directions and with different duration. You can also instantly synchronize the signal of a radio beacon without the need for multiple operations on the clock.
During the preparation of a flight, the slide rule E6B is confirmed as an auxiliary tool for the accurate calculation of fuel consumption and to determine the density of the air (indispensable factor for take-off and landing). E6B does not require external energy sources and still remains one flight instrument extremely reliable for the drivers.
The automatic caliber RMAC2 enclosed nell’RM 39-01 and a flyback chronograph and also provides functions UTC and countdown timer, a Big Date at 12 o’clock and the indication of the month. It has a rotor with variable geometry, a power reserve of 50 hours and consists of over 620 members, with 62 rubies.
This model is equipped with a special locking mechanism of the functions. To prevent accidental activation of the chronograph during the flight, Richard Mille has added a second inner ring with respect to the crown by turning it locks into place is the crown that the chronograph buttons. Two green and red arrows indicate when the device and running or not.
