Richard Mille Skull RM52-01

The RM 52-01 Skull is is the second piece in the Skull collection (first piece launched in 2012), and features the skull design that embodies Richard Mille’s anti-conformist spirit.  This model stands out both for its choice of materials and the way it has been crafted.  The RM 52-01 Skull has a manual winding tourbillon caliber built on a baseplate in PVD-treated titanium, much like the original RM 52.  But the skull and back of the skull are now sculpted from 5N red gold and are hand-bevelled — giving the skull a much more distinctive presence.

For the case, Richard Mille introduces a composite nano-ceramic material known as TZP, used for the RM 52-01′s bezel and case back (finished with microblasting and hand-polishing on the corners).
