This Is One Wicked Watch. The Tourbillon RM 052 Titanium Skull From Richard Mille.

Tourbillon RM 052 Titanium Skull

There are a lot of Skull watches out there. I’ve even blogged about some others But this new one from Richard Mille is different. The watch’s actual inner workings are integrated into the skull design.

In the Tourbillon RM 052 Titanium Skull the baseplate and bridges take the form of a grade 5 titanium skull. Richard Mille has pushed the concept further by integrating this into the movement. The upper and lower jaws hold the rubies of the tourbillon cage.

The back of the skull is actually the movement’s center bridge. The skeletonized baseplate and bridges were subjected to rigorous testing to insure their optimal strength.

The entire movement is connected to the case by 4 bridges that are inspired by the crossed bones from flags on pirate ships. The new case design, with its opened flanks, continues this visual allegory to the human skeleton.
