Any product, even the best, has more or less the same existence as us: birth, life and death. There’s no need to get all dramatic: it’s totally normal especially when it comes to this Richard Mille RM 11-03 Automatic Flyback replica watch by c which isn’t dead and buried. It’s been replaced by a reworked version with a more vibrant silhouette true to classic “marketing product” style.
Two large rose gold hands in the centre rimmed with a shimmering luminescent coating glide over openwork white hour numerals and an accurate minute track on the carbon fibre chapter ring. They are joined by the coppery red-tipped flyback chronograph seconds hand. Unsurprisingly, the mens fake Richard Mille RM 11-03 Automatic Flyback Chronograph isn’t exactly lacking in sporty character! The makeover doesn’t just mean it suits modern standards and injects new life into the collections but it also stands out from so-called “lifestyle” sport models. The date information is as follows: the oversize date lies at 12 and the month at 4.30.
The movement fuelling the 55-hour power reserve is snug inside the barrel-shape rose gold case. The case is 49.94mm long, 44.5mm wide and 16.5mm thick and divided into three parts held in place by 20 titanium spline screws. The three counters are displayed as follows: seconds at 3, chronograph hour counter at 6 and 60-minute timer at 9. Its self-winding RMAC3 skeleton calibre is a miniature 3D work of art that brings together sculpture and painting. The metallic lace woven on the titanium plate and bridges is elevated by a quartet of contrasting colours: pure white, grass green, electric yellow and bright red.
