Richard Mille RM 68-01 Tourbillon Cyril Kongo
Richard Mille is synonymous with innovation, so it’s no surprise that the house collaborated with revolutionary graffiti street artist Cyril Kongo on the 30-piece limited-edition RM 68-01 Tourbillon Cyril Kongo. Each watch was individually decorated using micro spray-painting methods, which mimic the distinctive works of art created by Kongo, who says “Graffiti is a language with its own codes; a form of writing, whether this be on a gigantic wall, on canvas or any other surface.” (featured in main photo)
