Labour of Love

Bespoke - - EMPEROR 1688 -

Richard Mille makes au­da­cious watches at el­e­vated prices, so they’re hardly for the faint of heart. But the won­der­fully play­ful RM69 Erot­ica Tour­bil­lon is imag­i­na­tive even by the lofty stan­dards of this haute hor­logerie brand, which prides it­self on creative sur­prises. Sport­ing an en­tirely me­chan­i­cal, hand-wound move­ment, com­pris­ing 505 com­po­nents and three ti­ta­nium rollers (each en­graved to show­case a ran­dom el­e­ment of a mes­sage), the watch won’t just tell you the time, it can of­fer in­struc­tions as to what acts to per­form on your part­ner if you press the but­ton lo­cated on the left of the case. The 775,000 USD time­piece was de­signed with Swiss leg­ends Aude­mars Piguet Re­naud & Papi and is said to of­fer 216 pos­si­ble per­sonal in­ti­mata­tions. Only 30 ex­am­ples of the watch will be made.
