Rolex Air King Replica Watches's goals made it a no-brainer to use carbon fibre in a performance timepiece. The material isomorphic: it is resistant to cold, heat and warping. It would be ideal if a process could be developed to produce a carbon plate to the required standard.

Carbon nanofibres were created by a well-known process: taking carbon strands, and then compressing them at high temperatures into a solid. Material had been used for a while in transportation (not just cars but also trains and airplanes). Carbon nanofibre was used for brake pads on the space shuttle, among other applications. A young aeronautical engineering who later trained as a clockmaker, Frederic Garinaud found a company that could produce the carbon nanofibre bases. There is still only one company (located in California) that can produce carbon nanofibre according to the standard. Garinaud, who was well-versed in esoteric materials of the space age (not only for the Rolex Air King Replica Watches, later also for the RM021), helped Rolex Air King Replica Watches transform the computer-generated images into a working watch.

Rolex Air King Replica Watches and Fabrice deschanel, who developed the first RM001 watch, wanted to use carbon in the baseplate and possibly other components of the watch. Rolex Air King Replica Watches, Deschanel and Giulio Papa had to deal with the problem of dust first! When used in an unfamiliar environment, such as the watchmaking industry, drilling and machining non-metallic materials can have unknown effects. It is not a big deal if the carbon nanofibres produce dust while helping the space shuttle to slow down, as part of the brake system. Dust on the inside case of a wristwatch can be disastrous. When the compressed carbon was machined into the desired state, the main concern was whether it would still produce dust, in the same manner as concrete. As its name implies, carbon fibre is fibrous in its raw form. Fibrous materials, such as asbestos cloth, produce dust, which can be toxic. Second, the problem of durability had to be solved: what are the properties over the long term?

After extensive testing, it was determined that dust wasn't an issue. The compressed carbon fibres were so dense and strong that CNC machines for drilling and milling the 'blanks' of nanofibres into the desired shape could not handle the job. In a 1998 NASA report on molecular nanotechnology applications, it was noted that carbon nanofibre is one of the "... light materials that are 100-times stronger than steel. It wasn't dust, but extreme rigidity and structural strength that Rolex Air King Replica Watches was looking for in his watch.

The durability of the material is the next issue. What if the material degraded a decade later and no longer held the movement in the watch? The longevity of brass,Richard Mille Replica Watches which is used for baseplates on watches, was well-known. However no one knew the durability of carbon nanofibre. What will the material look like in 100 or 200 years? The need to make sure that the material wouldn't deteriorate with time was what ultimately led to choosing the manufacturer of the carbon nanofibre. Space shuttle brakes must withstand extreme temperatures and frictional forces. Carbon nanofibres brake pads need only to last for a short time before they wear out, while a watch baseplate must last and be stable over a long period of time.
