Richard Mille with Its New RM 52-06 Tourbillon Mask
Richard Mille is introducing a masked face on the new RM 52-06 Tourbillon. The watchmaker says the figure can be interpreted as anything from a kabuki mask or a superhero to a gladiator helmet, but we think it looks more like Marvel’s The Punisher. Either way, it’s a departure from the now cliché skull symbol that’s become popular with many watch and fashion brands over the years—and it also comes with the kind of mechanics that set it apart from its skeletal competitors. The mask, which comes in PVD-treated grade 5 titanium or white gold, is fully integrated with the movement. It acts as a wheel train and tourbillon bridge, while the back acts as the center bridge. The back of the mask has been micro-blasted and polished with an anglage technique to emphasize its shape. On the front, just like the RM 052, the tourbillon beats just below the mouth where a ruby jewel accents the center of the cage. The skeleton baseplate has eight arms, machined from one block of grade 5 titanium, that anchor the mask and movement to the 49.94 mm by 42 mm by 16.15 mm case.
