“Timeless and classic” aren’t terms you would generally hear from anybody speaking about Richard Mille Watches Used Replica products — notably people at the firm itself. Inspired by the philosophy of a whole focus on the performance-over-cost mentality borrowed from different sectors like the world of Formula 1 racing, Richard Mille goods are all about pushing the envelope of possibility.Depending on who you ask, which push by Richard Mille is apparently equally in areas of technical mechanics, design, marketing plan, and of course, pricing. The specific purpose of the watch is on the thinner side, being directly attributed to observing the 50th anniversary of Jean Todt’s “career.” More especially, such as many other luxury watches, this product is, in actuality, an authentic celebration trophy for Mr. Todt, his buddies, and lovers (I wrote here why watches create the best decorations).The party is indeed for Mr. Todt (and Richard Mille) instead of the buyers themselves, but it is a tacit reminder by Richard Mille for its consumers that “you ought to make or buy a watch when you also have such a celebration to recognize.” It’s well established from the luxury world that consumers (no matter their funding degree) are the most motivated to buy something such as watch when they’re working to commemorate something.
Parisian graffiti artist Cyril Phan, better known as Kongo, is the creative mind behind the multi-hued RM 68-01 wristwatch. Asymmetrical with curved hands and movement bridges, the RM 68-01 Tourbillon Kongo is a miniature of graffiti art, created by spray painting the movement with a custom-made airbrush.
Being painted by Kongo individually, each movement is decorated differently. The back of the movement is similarly graffitied with spray paint, while the bridges are shaped like a splash of paint. Like many Richard Mille calibres, the movement is constructed by complications specialist Renaud & Papi, with its bridges and base plate made of titanium. It’s a hand-wound calibre with a tourbillon regulator.
The case middle is made of NTPT Carbon, a carbon-fibre based composite, while the front and back plates of the case are black ceramic.
With high-end streetwear becoming fashionable amongst the one percent, the RM 68-01 Tourbillon Kongo continues Richard Mille’s ability to capture the zeitgeist of the era for the rich. Limited to 30 pieces, the RM 68-01 Tourbillon Kongo is priced at US$685,000 or S$1.03m.
