Bold and beautiful, just like any other Richard Mille timepiece, this limited edition watch pays homage to the human Eros. Suggestively called RM 69 Erotic, it displays a number of inviting romantic messages written on grade 5 titanium rollers. Each facet of the three rollers holds a phrase such as ‘I long to’, ‘let me’, ‘I need to’, ‘arouse’, ‘explore, ‘your lips’, ‘your nipples’, ‘you tonight’.
Curious to learn how the messages can be switched around before you discreetly show them to your loved one at the dinner party? There is a push-button at 10 o’clock, which activates the rotation of the rollers, allowing you to select the most appropriate invitation for the night. If the hour and minute hands seem to be in the way and blocking the message, a different button at 8 o’clock allows you to temporarily retract them and reveal the rollers.
Continuing on the sexual theme, the power reserve ensures 69 hours of precision time telling, and the remaining energy can be checked on a small aperture at the 4 o’clock position. Grade 5 titanium was also used for the baseplate and bridges for uncompromising sturdiness and durability. The watch will only be produced in a limited number of 30.
You might be surprised to learn that this is in fact not the first time that watchmakers have been playing around with love messages. The watch actually pays tribute to watch manufacturers of yore, who would incorporate suggestive moving mechanisms into the caliber, thus evoking acts of passion.
Many of these watches have been confiscated and banned by religious and political law enforcers of the time, which really puts things into perspective. It makes us kid of grateful that today the Richard Mille RM 69 Erotic watch can spell its message in a clear and playful way!
