Ferrari Richard Mille RM UP-01 - The World's Most Thinnest Watch

Ferrari Richard Mille RM UP-01 – The World’s Most Thinnest Watch

Ever since Ferrari and Richard Mille established a newfound partnership in 2021, they’ve had some pretty incredible watches that have come to production. Their newest collaboration is possibly their best! Introducing the RM UP-01 Ferrari – the world’s thinnest watch!

 

 

Coming in at only 1.75mm thick, the RM UP-01 Ferrari is a feat of engineering. Given the flat and wide service, Richard Mille Horologists had to re-engineer their typical watch design when considering movement, baseplate, springs, etc. More than 6000 hours have gone into laboratory testing and research + development. The RM UP-01 Ferrari utilizes an ultraflat manual winding movement capable of hours, minutes, and a multi-function selector.

 

 

Richard Mille notes the RM UP-01 Ferrari is made from Grade 5 Titanium, and an Alloy that’s rigid, corrosion-resistant, and biocompatible. The Alloy used is 90% Grade 5 Titanium, 6% Aluminum, and 4% Vanadium. This mix allows the RM UP-01 Ferrari to withstand acceleration of over 5000 G-Forces, which comes in handy for a Formula 1 Driver ripping through the corners. Ferrari F1 drivers Charles LeClerc and Carlos Sainz have been sporting the all-new RM UP-01 Ferrari watch for a short time now, and the watch most certainly stands out!

 

 

A power reserve of 45 hours comes with the watch. To further explain; A power reserve on a watch refers to the available energy that becomes stored in a watch’s main spring. While a watch is currently running, the main spring unwinds over time until all the energy stored is gone. When this happens, the watch needs to be re-wound. Thus, the RM UP-01 Ferrari can go 45 hours at a time without having to be re-wound.

 

If this watch catches your eye, it’ll cost you a cool $1,900,000! With only 150 being made, you should probably try to grab one ASAP! Check out Richard Mille’s official release video from their YouTube Channel:
