RM UP-01 FERRARI: Less is more

As of now, the world’s thinnest high quality watches replica comes from


Richard Mille


Record holder, conversation piece or art within art: With a case height of just 1.75 mm, the RM UP-01 FERRARI is the current record holder, not only for being the thinnest watch in the world, but also for being the most expensive thinnest watch in the world. The world watches.

It’s best to forget everything that has shaped your visual image of Richard Mille watches before, because the RM UP-01 Ferrari is the debut of a new, unique shape in the Richard Mille collection.



With the RM UP-01 Ferrari, Richard Mille launches the world's thinnest luxury replica Watches, measuring just 1.75 mm tall (1.18 mm for the movement) and equipped with a new patented extra-flat escapement.

This is also the first watch between Richard Mille and Ferrari: in 2021, Ferrari and Richard Mille joined hands to form a long-term partnership, closely connected by the common pursuit of perfection. Equally obsessed with excellence, precision, reliability and innovation. A common goal: uncompromising performance.


Richard Mille celebrates its partnership with Ferrari by developing an extraordinary ultra-thin watch: the RM UP-01 Ferrari. The new model breaks with the brand's established design codes while remaining true to its identity and spirit. The boundaries of possibility are once again pushed and new challenges arise – this time in the form of ultra-thin watches.


At just 1.75mm tall, the RM UP-01 Ferrari is more than just a technical triumph. It also represents a new approach to watchmaking, in which technology determines aesthetics more than ever before. The model is the result of years of work, dozens of prototypes and more than 6,000 hours of development and laboratory testing.

Richard Mille chose to maintain the traditional architecture of the movement installed in the case, rather than using a structure with the case back as the base plate, to ensure absolute shock resistance. replica Richard Mille McLaren


Quotes “For a project like this, we had to set aside all the knowledge gained during many years of practice and every imaginable standard of watchmaking,” explains Julien Boillat, Technical Director of Cases at Richard Mille. “This is exactly what we did in collaboration with the Audemars Piguet Le Locle laboratory. Removing the last millimeter of depth is an extremely arduous and lengthy process.”

The collaboration between the Richard Mille and Ferrari teams is most evident in the choice of materials and production of the watch, imbuing the project with exactly the competitive spirit so essential to great adventures.


The RM UP-01 Ferrari evokes Ferrari's values, developing an elegant and unique sporty mechanism. The brand's models make no concessions. They often resist current trends to create new design norms. The RM UP-01 Ferrari is a testament to the greatest expertise these two iconic brands offer by combining their ideas, understanding, respective developments and shared values.


For Richard Mille, the concept of an ultra-thin quality replicas watches rules out traditional movements with gears and hands arranged one above the other. Therefore, we decided to distribute what cannot be stacked over a larger area: this creates a perfect symbiosis between movement and case, each ensuring the required stability.

The manual-winding RMUP-01 movement with hours, minutes and function selectors can withstand acceleration values of more than 5,000 grams, is only 1.18 mm tall, weighs 2.82 grams and has a power reserve of 45 hours.


To ensure optimal function of the gear train, the base plate and skeletonized bridges are made from grade 5 titanium. This ensures a perfectly flat surface without sacrificing strength.

The patented extra-flat barrel is equipped with an extremely fine balance spring, and the architecture of the escapement has been completely revised. To reduce the overall height, the balance plate and the safety pin, two components that prevent the lever from sliding back during the free phase of the balancing movement, have been eliminated.


The new ultra-flat escapement, also patented, replaces these anti-reverse elements with slender forks with new corners. The return hand has also been eliminated, replaced by a balance wheel made of titanium with a variable moment of inertia, whose six counterweights enable fine-tuning calibration of the regulating mechanism.


In order to create such a slim replica watch stores, the winding mechanism also had to be redesigned and the winding shaft had to be eliminated, even with a minimum diameter of 1.5 mm, which would not fit in such a flat watch. Instead, two crowns (one for selecting a function and the other for operating the selected function) are integrated into the case as working wheels.


Quotes "We were determined to create a watch that met the same testing standards as all our other models, even in the realm of extreme thinness. In pursuit of absolute flatness, we had to create a watch that, far from being a "concept watch", is It can accompany the wearer’s daily life in various situations.” added Salvador Arbona, Technical Director of Watch Movements at Richard Mille.


Titanium is used for the case, which is just 1.75 mm thick and water-resistant to 10 meters, because it combines lightness with laboratory-tested durability.


The two sapphire crystals – one above the time display, with its hands mounted directly on the wheel, and the other above the regulating mechanism (the balance spring group) to provide insight into the workings of the movement – have also been reduced to two-tenths The height is one millimeter and the diameter is calculated during the testing phase to ensure its resistance.


The narrow tolerance ranges and extremely thin profiles of the individual parts require particularly careful machining and control at almost every stage of production. For this reason, it was decided that the case of the RM UP-01 Ferrari would be produced by Richard Mille’s movement department.


Like the famous Italian car legend Ferrari (thanks to its extreme lightness, tonneau shape, splined screws, hollow bridges and top-notch finishing to the manufacturer's standards of Richard Mille), the limited-edition RM UP-01 series Ferrari combines innovation and High performance, strength and beauty all rolled into one. For Richard Mille, it is “a complete piece of exceptional quality” that meets all the brand’s requirements and is suitable to be worn in any situation. replica Grand Seiko Watches
