THE LIFE­LIKE FLAMES FLICK­ER­ING AROUND AN EVIL EYE ON THE DIAL OF RICHARD MILLE’S RM 26-02 TOUR­BIL­LON EVIL EYE SYM­BOL­ISE PRO­TEC­TION AGAINST NEG­A­TIVE EN­ERGY. THE FLAMES AND THE EYE WERE HAND-CARVED IN 3N RED GOLD BY RENOWNED SWISS CRAFTS­MAN OLIVIER VAUCHER US­ING THE GRAND FEU ENAM­ELLING TECH­NIQUE, WHICH RE­QUIRES SEV­ERAL FIR­INGS AT TEM­PER­A­TURES OF 800 TO 900 DE­GREES CEL­SIUS, AND FIN­ISHED WITH SEV­ERAL LAY­ERS OF TRANS­PAR­ENT LAC­QUER, WHICH ARE ALSO FIRED AT SIM­I­LAR TEM­PER­A­TURES. THE MUL­TI­PLE LAY­ERS COL­LEC­TIVELY CRE­ATE AN EX­QUIS­ITE VIS­UAL DEPTH IM­POS­SI­BLE TO ACHIEVE BY OTHER MEANS.
