Along with the Panda, this red skull design was launched to express creative freedom and trying to attract a wider range of market through these new designs. The two designs were actually released for the Baselworld 2013, entering this event with the two symbolizing fine jewellery and perfect watch movement.
The skull watch is also a remake of the previous model, RM 052, that has a tourbillon mechanism, crocodile straps and a black PVD coated grade 5 titanium plate.

2 Panda RM 026-1: $1,592,919
1 Richard Mille RM 56 Sapphire: $1.56 Million
At the top of the list comes the watch that may look as if plastic was used but in actual truth, everything is in sapphire. The cost of this limited edition watch amounted to $1.65 million and was given such price for valid reasons. Aside from the fact that the whole case is sapphire, this RM 56 model has the Richard Mille technology, known as Tourbillon and has only 5 units out in the market. Its straps are made out of aerospace nano technology, meaning you could probably bring this watch in space and the price still won’t drop. In terms of its mechanical parts, Richard Mille dedicated the split seconds chrono tourbillion technology for it in its complete complicated system. Some critics say the sapphire crystals looking plastic destroy the essence of a luxury watch and honestly, it may seem difficult to look into the hands and the clockwork at the same time. However, this watch definitely gave a lot of people a shock of the possibilities within a watch.
