Richard Mille RM 69 Erotic Tourbillon … 69 hours power reserve … 69 … 🙂
“Honni soit qui mal y pense”, say the French!
Erotic timepieces are part of watchmaking history. Designers of yore played with the theme of libertinism by mechanically recreating suggestive scenes. Because they broke with conservative moral, religious and political customs, these objects were often banned and confiscated. But like all forbidden love, their pleasure was enjoyed away from prying eyes. Just click >>> HERE <<< to see another “hot” example… Funny to mention that the most beautiful examples of such timepieces were made for the clergy and also sold to it. As we all know by concealing the complications at the heart of watches in question, historic models have survived to this day.
The Richard Mille RM 69 Erotic Tourbillon is different… The watch will not show any erotic animated scene. On the RM 69, however, love and eroticism proclaim themselves proudly and clearly in words. Far from scenes brought to life by automatons, this creation plays on the desire to openly express passion, sensuality and even sexuality.
The Richard Mille RM 69 Erotic Tourbillon will delight and amuse its owners, teasingly displaying phrases that evoke desired pleasure.
The RM 69 offers its wearers the pleasure of the new Richard Mille “Oracle” complication, a mechanism that sets off the rotation of three grade 5 titanium engraved rollers like Tibetan prayer wheels, displaying a random phrase. Activated on request by pressing a button at 10 o’clock, it will reveal the wearers’ deepest desires. To enhance its legibility, the movement’s engineers have developed a mechanism allowing the hands to break free from the gear-train. Activating the push-piece at 8 o’clock makes the hands disappear, visually liberating the rollers. Once released, the hands automatically return to their rightful position in time.
Its 69-hour power reserve is displayed in a new aperture at 4 o’clock in the form of a gauge powered by a planetary differential. This exceptional power reserve, obtained using a simple barrel, testifies
to the Swiss brand’s quest for high performance in this original movement.
Designed in collaboration with Audemars Piguet Renaud & Papi, this movement features 505 components and 41 jewels, and is extremely compact thanks to its construction that enables the tourbillon and barrel to be aligned on the same axis. Enhanced by steep bridges, the 3-Hz-tourbillon carriage ( = 21.600 A/h) and the barrel insist on being seen. The bridges and plate of the tourbillon caliber are machined from grade 5 titanium.
The RM69 caliber is protected by a tripartite case in grade 5 titanium (dimensions: 50.00 mm x 42.70 mm x 16.15 mm). Ergonomic and comfortable to wear the case is assembled with 20 Spline screws, also in titanium, ensuring the watch remains water-resistant up to 50 meters.
The Richard Mille RM 69 Erotic Tourbillon pays tribute to watchmaking history and the creativity of past generations. This 30-piece limited edition will be available exclusively in Richard Mille’s 24 boutiques around the world.
The price will be unveiled next week … I am sure this watch will not be cheap 🙂
