Just in case his sapphire crystal encased RM056 Chrono-Tourbillon Watch did not flabbergast event goers at this week's Salon International de la Haute Horlogerie (SIHH) in Geneva, Richard Mille prepared another new design, the Tourbillon RM 052 Skull Watch. As suggested, a skull features prominently on the dial face. But unlike other "skull and crossbones" novelties (and there are quite a few), Mille distinctively integrated the movement into the macabre element.  Held adrift by four "crossbones" at the center of the encasement, the skeletonized function translates to the back, which is also visible thanks to sapphire watch back.  Limited to only 21 pieces, with 6 made of rose/white gold and 15 of these made entirely out of titanium, it will be beyond most watch enthusiasts' budgets unless you're a corporate raider of some sort.
