During the Voiles de Saint-Barth sailing competition, Pierre Casiraghi, patron of the event and Richard Mille ambassador, wore on his wrist this practical series made for sailing the Seven Seas. Let us explain.
During a regatta, crossing the line first is essential to take advantage of downwind conditions before your competitors and take control of the race. To assist sailors, Richard Mille has drawn on its expertise acquired on land by developing the RM 60-01 Regatta Flyback Chronograph. In addition to its capacity to measure short time lapses with ease thanks to its flyback function and its automatic caliber, the watchmakers knew how to meet the needs of sport lovers no matter where they find themselves on the planet.

A rotating bezel placed on the 50 mm titanium case provides a multitude of indications including a wind rose orientating the four points of the compass. Two colored scales, in yellow and green, provide important information at the start. One displays degrees up to 360, the other displays 24 hours. To use this feature, you need to know the local time and the position of the sun. To calculate your position, you must then move the UTC indicator in the direction of the sun using the pusher at 9 o’clock. The second step involves turning the bezel until the UTC hand is in line with the local time marked on the outer ring of the bezel. Once complete, the North, South, East and West graduations on the bezel will be aligned with the four points of the compass. This function works with ease in both the north and south hemispheres.

The RM 60-01 Regatta also features a countdown timer at 9 o’clock in the form of a 60-minute graduated skeletonized disc. This totaliser displays the minutes elapsed and the minutes remaining. Ready to tack?
