For the first time in five years, Formula 1 will be in the United States. The United States Formula 1 Grand Prix will take place in Austin, Texas, November 16-18, 2012 at which Felipe Massa will race wearing a Richard Mille timepiece. As a tribute, Richard Mille has created a limited edition RM 011 Felipe Massa Flyback Chronograph Carbon.
The new timepiece features a flyback chronograph, skeletonized automatic winding movement with adjustable rotor geometry, 60-minute countdown timer, 12-hour totalizer, annual calendar and oversize date and month. “The black carbon tripartite case gives high contrast to the watch’s bright yellow strap, numerals, hands, inner bezel, crown protector and lacquer rotor detail. A yellow helmet at the 7 o’clock position adds a subtle sporty touch.”
The new RM 011 Felipe Massa Flyback Chronograph Carbon will be made in a limited edition of 30 pieces, to be sold at the Richard Mille Boutique Beverly Hills, California.
