By Meor Amri Meor Ayob Photos from the internet Friday, January 24, 2014 The Richard Mille RM 63-01 is smaller than the other five watches under the 2014 line up. At just 42.7 mm in diameter and with just a thickness of 11.7 mm it can easily be mistaken to be part of the ladies collection. Made out of 18k gold (Au750), it is powered by the new automatic caliber CRMA3 with 50 hours on a full charge.

This watch has a function that does not generate any utility except to generate humour and a bit of mystery. Similar to a Frank Muller “Crazy Hours” or Hublot’s “Key of Time” time pieces which shows time moving at a different pace than usual. By depressing a pusher at the centre of the crown, it activates a mechanism that causes the sapphire glass dial begins to slowly rotate counterclockwise while the hour hand moving clockwise, both at different speeds. Depressing the pusher again and everything goes back to normal. Sometimes it’s fun to have something to smile about and this weird complication does the trick.
