M 69 Tourbillon Erotique, the latest Richard Mille’s watch, was also inspired by intimacy, sexuality, and passion. Far from scenes brought to life by automatons, this creation plays on the desire to openly express passion, sensuality and even sexuality.

The timepiece will be presented at the 2015 Watches and Wonders trade fair Hong Kong (September 30 -October 3, 2015). Being a very limited edition, the new “erotic” watch will end up in the collectors hands.
