Richard Mille's RM 52-05 tourbillon Pharrell Williams is an ode to the universe
The award-winning singer, songwriter and producer Pharrell Williams collaborated with watchmaker Richard Mille to create the RM 52-05 tourbillon Pharrell Williams.
The 46-year-old Williams has been a big fan of the brand and the TV series "Star Trek" (he named "Star Trek" after a record-breaking name), and his lifelong fascination with the universe has attracted inspiration. However, according to his subversive form, he flipped the angle of view and depicted the landscape of the earth reflected on the astronaut helmet visor standing on the surface of Mars.
Williams said in the press release: "Creation is to change our perspective on things." "That really is the only difference, and for RM 52-05, we look at Mars from another angle, which is out Unexpected first-person perspective."Jacob & Co Astronomia Tourbillon Baguette Revolution AT810.40.BD.BD.ABALA
The dial invites the expertise of masters of engraving, enamelling and painting decorative arts. The helmet is carved from grade 5 titanium alloy and hand-painted with special ultra-durable white paint.
The surroundings of the red planet of the Valles Marineris astronaut named Valler 9 Probe Planet reflected on the sun visor, and the blue earth hovered above the distant horizon. The scene is painstakingly engraved on the curved red gold dial, each process takes 15 hours, and then a whole day of grand feu enamel processing, the layer of paint repeatedly baked at 850 degrees Celsius is superimposed to achieve the change from orange to red And red color gradient. Blue to black.
On each side of the helmet, the jeweler inlaid two diamonds and a black sapphire, representing the floodlight and the camera. The stone is polished, chamfered and fixed to the proper depth, and the table is perfectly aligned to ensure even reflection.swiss replica watches
In order to match Richard Mille's method of adding space-time materials to the watch, the tripartite case is water-resistant to 50 meters. The bezel and case back are made of ultra-scratch-resistant brown cermet and fixed in On the strap. Carbon TPT is a high-tech composite material commonly used in aerospace.
The hands and bridges can be seen through the sapphire crystal case back. They have been skeletonized to evoke a rocket launch platform, and the crown is modeled after a rocket bay and surrounded by a rubber ring that mimics the tires of the Martian rover.
The bottom plate and bridge of the RM52-05 movement are made of strong, corrosion-resistant grade 5 titanium, an alloy used in the aerospace, aviation and automotive industries. The sparkling Aventurine glass inserted in the bottom plate evokes the vast space and at the same time provides a background for the astronaut on the side of the dial.
Williams said: "In all aspects of my work, I am always looking for something different and novel." "Working with Richard Mille provides a way to go to other people. Opportunities in places visited. For example, Mars."U-BOAT CHIMERA 46 7475 Replica Watch
Brown cermet and strap in carbon TPT®
The brown cermet combines the lightness of titanium with the hardness of ceramics. It consists of a metallic zirconium base associated with high-performance ceramics, giving the material an incredible brown hue with metallic reflections.
The mass-to-volume ratio of cermet is 5.7 g/cm3 and the hardness is 1200 Vickers, which is comparable to traditional ceramics. It is very suitable for bezel and back cover. Both areas are very easy to scratch, while ensuring the weight of the entire component light. These two elements are fixed on a strap made of CarbonTPT®, which also helps to reduce the total weight.
This high-tech material consists of 600 layers of parallel filaments, which are obtained by separating carbon fibers. Layers with a thickness not exceeding 30 microns are impregnated with black resin. They are then assembled on a dedicated machine that stacks the layers together, changing the fiber direction between the layers by 45°. The composite material is then heated to 120°C in a kiln at a pressure of 6 bar, similar to the kiln used to make aerospace parts, and then ready for mechanical processing at Richard Mille.
The triple housing is waterproof to 30 meters, sealed by 2 nitrile O-rings, and assembled using 24 grade 5 titanium spline screws and 316L stainless steel wear-resistant washers.replica MB&F Watches
