Lot Essay

With Richard Mille instruction manual, fitted presentation box and outer packaging.

The RM52 Tourbillon Skull is for the first time coming up for auction here at Christie’s. Richard Mille watches are notoriously known for their high-tech engineering and their bold looks. This example of the “Skull” is distinctive of the creative freedom Richard Mille likes to surprise us with and the result is eccentric and belligerent. The materials used for this example reflect this audacious look and include black coated titanium, ceramic, carbon and zirconium – all revolutionary materials in the watch industry that confirm the unique DNA of Richard Mille’s watches.

The present watch is an exceedingly rare example, hardly seen before in this configuration and will certainly gather the interest of avid
Richard Mille collectors worldwide. This watch is offered here in “new old stock” condition and is part of a very limited series made for the Asian market, limited to 6 pieces and is numbered 5.
