The Richard Miller watch is not only the most accurate watch, but also one of the most surprising watch brands. At the 2013 Geneva Watchmaking Fair, Richard Miller brought us a cool watch, the skeleton skull in the middle of the case, the clever structure and the impactful picture are inseparable. eye. It is closely related to the popular skull pattern and sophisticated high-end watches. Let’s take a look at this cool tourbillon watch and see how it brings us a strong visual effect. At the same time to ensure the accuracy of the travel time, the official model: RM052.
Throughout history, skulls have been recorded on many occasions and concepts. Skull marks are sometimes purely visual effects, and sometimes they are related to concepts of religion and consciousness. Latin Americans see it as a symbol of life; Europeans associate it with death, and the image of the skull reminds Europeans of ephemeral life and time.
The RM 052 skull tourbillon watch is a visual interpretation of the skull pattern. The bottom plate and splint of the movement are made of titanium alloy skull shape, and the skull pattern is perfectly integrated into the movement. Both the bezel and the case back are hollowed out, which reduces the overall weight of the watch and visually matches the theme of the skull.
The skull on the dial is very realistic, and it is no less inferior to the jewelry design brand in terms of artistic performance. In addition to the frontal visual effects, this skull actually bears the movement part of this watch. The upper and lower jaws of the skull support the ruby of the tourbillon frame, and the rear of the skull is designed as the central splint of the movement. . Both the hollow base plate and the plywood are rigorously tested to ensure the best strength requirements.
The core part of the watch is connected to the case with 4 splints, the effect is reminiscent of the skull flag flying on the pirate ship. The movement is connected to the case by 4 splices, and its inspiration is derived from the crossed bones on the pirate flag.
The watch is made of grade 5 titanium alloy. This biocompatible, super corrosion-resistant and extremely strong alloy can make the gear train work more perfectly. This alloy contains 90% titanium, 6% aluminum and 4% vanadium. This combination can further enhance its mechanical properties and is often used in the aviation, aerospace and automotive industries. The case part needs to go through 86 stamping processes. Only the three major parts of the case: the bezel, the ring and the case back cover, need to go through 49 processes. The cutting and milling processes can be performed after all of them are completed.
The case connection uses grade 5 titanium alloy spline screws. With this type of screws, the torque of the screws can be better controlled during assembly, so the screws are durable during assembly and disassembly because they will not be damaged.
The side position is a strong metallic torque-limiting crown. This crown helps to strengthen the safety factor and prevent accidental overwinding, so as to avoid all kinds of potential damage, such as the winding of the winding stem or the winding The clockwork pressure of the box is too high.
Through the case back, you can see the back of the skull, with a manually wound tourbillon movement inside, 10.9 mm thick and 30.9 mm long, set with 19 gems. The frequency is 3 Hz. The entire movement is sanded by hand and handled carefully. Power reserve of 48 hours.
Summary: This Chad Miller RM052 skull tourbillon watch is quite special in shape, giving you enough visual experience, wearing absolute pull wind, no less inferior to driving a roadster. This is an extraordinary timepiece and a pinnacle of work worth collecting. The price of the watch is needless to say.
