Any old watch can tell you what time it is within an hour or two, but there are things more important in this world than the time of day. This is something the people at watch brand Richard Mille seem to understand with their latest limited edition – the RM 69 Erotic Tourbillon.
The RM 69 Erotic Tourbillon is described as “a clear affirmation of the creative longing to reveal our most secret intentions in all their glory.” What that translates to is an intricately mechanical piece that displays erotic messages on three small displays – one for each clause in the erotic sentence (see a good example of how the watch works above). It doesn’t appear to tell the time, but who needs it when you have such a surefire way to attract a mate?
Unfortunately, like a good relationship, the RM 69 Erotic Tourbillon is going to be pretty hard to find. It’s only available in a limited edition of 30 pieces, to be sold from Richard Mille locations. You can, however, get some more info on the watch and the watchmaking tradition it springs from, at the official Richard Mille site right here.
