Eroticism has existed since the beginning of human history and has been reflected in a great variety of forms, even the media are one of the most used sources for its expansion and distribution. Although in some countries it is still a taboo, in others it is not, and is reflected in everyday items such as hats, shoes, pants, shirts, underwear, among others.

In addition to the above, it should be noted that eroticism is also part of the history of watchmaking. During the 18th century, some watches openly displayed erotic scenes on their dials, in fact, at some point there were watches that added movement to the love games of lovers. The Geneva Council of 1821 prohibited the use of this type of watch and ordered its immediate destruction.

However, the regulations approved at that time did not manage to put an end to this “fashion”, since erotic watches continued to be manufactured, although their sexual scenes were no longer visible to prying eyes and only their owners could contemplate them, since these messages and images were hidden under the covers of pocket watches or reproduced in the mechanics of the same.

Now, in recent months there has been talk of Richard Mille’s watch, called «Tourbullon RM 69 Érotique»; This limited edition jewel with a new complication tries to discover the most hidden desires of the human being and only when reading his name does this firm launch the message.

This time you will not appreciate those erotic scenes that were previously discussed and that provoked the displeasure of the authorities, both religious and political and moral at that time, however, and in the words of its creator Mille; This watch «exploits desire» and openly expresses its characteristics such as passion, sensuality and sexuality.

The ABC web portal explains and further details the operation of this jewel, it is made up of three cylinders that randomly form messages with their rotation. Its creators have been inspired by Tibetan prayer mills. It is a very complex mechanism that occupies a large part of the surface of the manual winding movement with tourbillon and that is activated only when the pusher at 10 o’clock is activated. So that the hands do not interfere when reading the message, in this case erotic, these They disappear when you press the pusher at 8 o’clock.

To carry out this masterpiece, Richard Mille has worked hand in hand with Audemars Piguet Renaund. Mille has launched the «Tourbillon RM 69 Érotique» in a limited edition of 30 watches that is sold exclusively in its own boutiques located in various countries around the world such as China, France, Hong Kong, Indonesia, Italy, Japan, Korea, Macao, Malaysia , Monaco, Qatar, Singapore, Switzerland, United Arab Emirates, United Kingdom and of course in the United States of America.
