This is the new Richard Mille Rock’n’Roll RM66 timepiece – and that is not a moniker, it’s the actual name of the watch.

It looks great but would-be buyers are going to have to fork out rockstar money for it.

The latest Richard Mille embodies the spirit of Rock’n’Roll with a flamboyant horn hand on the dial.

The skeleton hand is made from red gold and the hour and minute indicators are mounted on top of it.

CHECK THIS OUT!

One of the craziest details about the hand is you can see the index finger and the pinkie on the dial, while the thumb, middle finger and ring finger are visible from the caseback.

Keen-eyed watch fans will also notice the guitar plectrum-shaped hour markers around the dial.

The steampunk-style case is made from Carbon TPT, a composite material that combines quartz and carbon fiber.

Richard Mille has actually created and patented this material.

Speaking of top-notch materials, the screws are made from titanium, as is case band.

And to complete the package, RM used red gold to adorn both sides of the case and the crown.

Titanium was also used for the tourbillon movement.

The movement is made in-house, like everything else at RM (including the screws), and it comes with a 72-hour power reserve.

And, last but not least, were you able to spot the minuscule stylized skull at the center of the tourbillon?

Richard Mille Rock’n’Roll price

All Richard Mille watches are expensive and with a list price of $1,095,000, the Rock’n’Roll is no exception,

The Richard Mille RM66 Flying Tourbillon Rock’n’Roll is limited to 50 pieces.
