RICHARD MILLE Tourbillon

Condition: as new
Box, papers: yes
Overview: RM 69 Erotic Tourbillon, the classiest and most tastful erotic timepiece out there. Working with AP Renaud & Papi, Richard Mille has developed a new complication called “oracle”, which comes to life for the very first time inside the new Richard Mille RM 69 Erotic Tourbillon. Reminiscent of a Tibetan prayer wheel, the oracle complication allows random statements to be displayed thanks to the rotation of three rollers.
Additionally, the calibre RM 69 features a unique Richard Mille architecture. In this construction, the tourbillon and barrel are superimposed on the same axis rather than being assembled face-to-face. This ensures that the calibre is more compact and has greater shock-resistance, meaning that larger complications can be integrated into the watch. The calibre features 41 jewels, a fast rotating barrel and a tourbillon with a diameter of 11.10 mm. While beating at a frequency of 21,600 vph, this manual wound movement provides a power reserve of 69 hours. Regarding the fast rotating barrel, this type of barrel features a 6 hours per revolution instead of 7.5 hours and provides the following advantages: diminishing the phenomenon of periodic internal mainspring adhesion, thereby increasing performance and providing an excellent mainspring delta curve with an ideal power reserve/performance and regularity ratio.
The Richard Mille RM 69 Erotic Tourbillon pays tribute to watchmaking history and the creativity of past generations. Limited edition of 30 pieces.
