RM 68-01 Tourbillon Cyril Kongo

Richard Mille 2017

Men's

RM 68-01 Tourbillon Cyril Kongo square

 

 

The RM 68-01 springs from Richard Mille's idea to open

fine watchmaking to contemporary art. The plate and bridges of the movement, as

well as the flange, become an outlet for the creative work of street artist

Cyril Kongo, forming a coherent whole. Kongo is originally a graffiti artist,

and it took over a year to develop the equivalent of a micro spray can that was

capable of spraying droplet by droplet with extreme precision. The real

challenge, however, was to achieve a palette of unique, inalterable and bright

colours that would perfectly adhere to the titanium components and therefore resist

being dismantled and reassembled. The shape of the carbon case with black

ceramic bezel and back plays on an asymmetrical design, varying in thickness

between 9 and 3 o'Clock, and in height between 12 and 6 o'clock.
