Richard Mille is proud to present a new model: the Erotic Tourbillon Watch RM 69. The naming of the watch clearly states the purpose of this design: to make the most secret intentions public. This masterpiece of fine watchmaking will be full of interesting interpretations, which will make its wearers fascinated. In an entertaining situation, they will be happy to show some sentences, and some words can also produce imaginative fun.
Erotic watches have a long history in watchmaking. Past designers have used robotics to recreate suggestive scenes in order to entertain the theme of sluttyness.
These works are often banned and detained because they contradict the conservative customs of the moral, religious and political authorities. However, just like all taboo relationships, avoiding people’s eyes is a way of enjoyment, which is why we are able to appreciate this complex function hidden in some models today.
However, the RM 69 watch runs counter to it, clearly expressing love and desire in words. This design does not use artificial devices to make scenery at all, but rather uses frank expressions of passion, senses, and even cravings.
The hand-winding tourbillon movement’s bridge and bottom plate are made of grade 5 titanium alloy. The design of this movement is the result of cooperation with Audemars Piguet’s Renaud & Papi movement factory. It consists of 505 parts and 41 rubies. Its extremely compact structure is based on the unique Duoplan double layer. Design, so that the tourbillon and the barrel are aligned on the same axis. The tourbillon swings at 3 Hz, and its protective shell is magnificently set off by the excellent bridge plate, which is as fascinating as the barrel.
The circular polishing, chamfering, black polishing and deep concave chamfering are combined with manual polishing processes, combined with PVD coating treatment, micro-blasting and satin-finished surface. Such a complex example of fine processing has witnessed the brand’s movement on Beautiful meticulous determination. The 69-hour power reserve is displayed at 4 o’clock in the novel form of the meter, and its power comes from the différentiel planétaire. An extraordinary power reserve is achieved through a single barrel. As a result, the wearer of the RM 69 watch can fully enjoy this new and complex feature named ‘Oracle’. The mechanical structure starts the rotation of 3 sculpted rollers made of grade 5 titanium alloy, like Tibetan The normal warp tube allows the confession to flow randomly.
The wearer presses the button at 10 o’clock to activate the device at his own will, and his desire is directly expressed.
In order to read the message more clearly, the movement engineer has developed a mechanism that can release the hands from the time gear. Activating the button at 8 o’clock makes the pointer invisible, and the roller takes its place. Once you stop pressing, the hands will automatically return to the time position.
The case that protects the RM 69 movement is forged in grade 5 titanium alloy and consists of three parts. It has a full size of 50.00 x 42.70 x 16.15 mm. Both ergonomic and highly comfortable, this case continues Richard Mille’s usual style and is assembled with 20 titanium alloy spline screws to ensure the watch’s water resistance to 50 meters.
The RM 69 ‘erotic’ watch is a tribute to the history of watchmaking and the creativity of its predecessors. Thirty limited editions are only available in Richard Mille’s 24 boutiques around the world.

The barrel-shaped three-layer case fully displays curved lines to increase wearing comfort, but it requires more manufacturing and quality inspection time.
The curved design of the front and back of the case is a feature of Richard Mille watches, whether it is a barrel, round, or even rectangular case.
To make such perfect and soft lines, absolute precision is required, and there should be no stress in the metal. The watch factory spent a year researching and
Development has made such a rigorous case structure possible.
The RM 69 watch case requires 4 hours of machining and about 255 milling operations. The final completion requires a full day of grinding,
Mercerizing grinding and polishing process.
The case is water-resistant to 50 meters with two N-type O-ring seals. It is assembled with 20 grade 5 titanium alloy spline screws and 316L stainless steel anti-wear washer.
Case Grade 5 Titanium Spline Screw
These screws allow for more precise control of the tightening torque. During assembly and disassembly
Will not be damaged in time, so it is durable.
This safety device prevents excessive winding, which can cause damage to the arbor or overtighten the mainspring.
