Sylvain Mariat, head of Creative Design at Airbus Corporate Jets and Richard Mille collaborated to create ACJ RM 50-02 Tourbillon Split Seconds Chronograph. The watch face is shaped after Airbus aircraft window. The case is constructed Titanium-Aluminum while the bezel is made of white ceramic based on aluminum oxide powder. The colors chosen for different parts correspond to some of those in display screens and instruments of the aircraft.
The structure around the crown is also inspired by various parts of Airbus. Many of them are made of grade 5 titanium, and numerous components have been treated with the same products used for protection of fuselage parts and aircraft engines.
This chronograph has a power reserve of 70 hours visible at indicator between 11 and 12 o’clock. The back cover has been left transparent for greater view. The ACJ RM 50-02 Tourbillon is limited to 30 pieces only with a price tag of $1,050,000.
