Richard Mille is to watches what Frank Buchwald is becoming to lamps .

His latest functional art masterpiece is the RM011 Flyback Chronograph, a descendent of the RM 09 developed for F1 driver Felipe Massa, created with Formula 1 racing in mind. And with an estimated price between $60,000 and $80,000, it will fit right in with your pricey F1 mouse mats and Ferrari cell phone .

Gear Live and Watchismo seem to have got the scoop on the RM011 watch, which was officially due for unveiling later in March, according to Kronos Blog.

For those of you who know about watches, the RM 011 has a Vaucher base (the movement parts) with a Dubois Dépraz module (the chronograph parts).

In addition to the RM011, and perhaps even lovelier, is the automatic winding and titanium Richard Mille Automatic RM016. It will be the flattest and only rectangular watch in his collection so far.
