Richard Mille has just unveiled one of its wildest creations in partnership with Airbus Corporate Jets — the RM 62-01 Tourbillon Vibrating Alarm watch. At first glance the case design is intended to mimic the shape of an airplane window, with the large crown and pushers taking on the shape of a jet engine and pylons on a wing. The airplane references continue on in the colors of the indexes and hands, where the bright colors signify cockpit lights, and the carbon grain is reminiscent to custom dark wood panelling found on private jets.

This RM 62-01 takes the idea of a travel watch to a whole new level. Constructed from milled carbon TPT and titanium, the 42mm case houses a second time zone function, power reserve indicator (70 hours) , a tourbillon, am/pm indicator, function selector, 12 o’clock big date, and a very impressive vibrating alarm. Meant to keep things discreet, this alarm function does not let out a chime, but rather, a white-gold rotating weight spins at 5,400 rpm for 12 seconds to physically alert the wearer. The vibrating function has its own power reserve indicator at the 7 o’clock, and is fully charged with 12 pushes at the 8 o’clock.

This innovative watch does comes at a price, as the boutique-exclusive RM 62-01 will retail at a price of $1,225,000 USD and is limited to 30 examples. As crazy as this all sounds, all 30 watches are most likely already reserved.
