Richard Mille RM62-01 Tourbillon Vibrating Alarm ACJ
The next iteration of a collaboration between Richard Airbus and Mille Corporate Jets (ACJ), the Airbus subsidiary commercializing bespoke private aircraft, the RM 62-01 Tourbillon Vibrating Alarm ACJ offers a specific concentrate on the traveler: “The RM 62-01 is imagined, prompting me to keep experiments begun with the RM 50-02 Tourbillon ACJ in a new kind of travel watch. The RM 62-01 is created for the discretion prevailing in the hushed atmosphere of luxury. Transmitted by vibrations exclusively, its security alarm function attests concern and savoir-faire. It owes its presence to an singular technical strategy absolutely. Easy to use supremely, this problem embodies a paradox. Normally, a highly effective alarm must be audible from afar. Ours however, had a need to stay within the compass of the few millimeters.”
In other words, and as opposed to the original chimes and alarms of all horological bits of yesteryear now, that of the RM 62-01 is silent absolutely. Rather than hammer that creates an audio by stunning a pillar, a gong or the inside of the full case, the right time signal is transmitted with a vibration only the wearer can perceive.

The watch introduces a fresh, vibrating mechanical alarm function silently.
This vibrating alarm had to be designed in order never to affect the watch movement, a significant concern. This eventually led to the basic idea of using an offset weight in solid gold, comparable to an automated rotor, producing a whole motion “Before, an array of technical questions needed to be answered. 2 Barrels, 11 shows and a tourbillon cage. Among our watch constructors done this regular for five years, with the help of an additional watch constructor sometimes, with progress conferences every fourteen days.”
