The mens Richard Mille RM 69 Erotic Tourbillon replica watch is marked by the use of three titanium rotating hexagonal prisms that are engraved to showcase saucy messages.
Erotic timepieces are a part of watchmaking history. They were popular in less sexually-liberated times, providing a mildly subversive and often amusing animatronic piece of horological pornography, breaking with conservative moral, religious and political customs. These timepieces were frequently confiscated, which explains why watchmakers typically reserved any X-rated complications for the back of the watch. Switzerland’s Richard Mille creates a modern take on the idea and introduces the Richard Mille RM 69 Erotic Tourbillon copy watch.
They all follow a similar form, with the top line including “I long to”, “I need to” and “I want to”; the middle tier contains verbs such as “caress”, “explore”, “arouse” and “taste”, and the message concludes with options like “you madly”, “your lips”, “you tonight” and “your nipples”. These three small panels, called an “Oracle” complication can be activated by pressing the large pusher at 10 o’clock, which spins the titanium rollers to reveal a random combination of words.
To the right of the tourbillon is a linear power reserve indicator, charting the movement’s 69 hours of power. Other than that, the erotic timepiece boasts Richard Mille’s signature tonneau case and pentagonal spline screws, with a semi-openworked set of bridges in black PVD and grade 5 Titanium, with the usual range of graining, bevelling and hand-polishing on display. The RM 69 Erotic Tourbillon features Duoplan movement architecture which allows for a compact caliber by mounting the 3Hz tourbillon and the mainspring barrel on the same axis. The price for this RM 69 Erotic Tourbillon limited edition Richard Mille watch replica has yet to be announced as has its release date.
