Adding to his ever-expanding list of collaborations, Pharrell has partnered with Swiss watchmaking brand Richard Mille on an insanely expensive timepiece. Limited to just 350 units, the watch, officially referred to as the “RM 52-05 Tourbillon Pharrell Williams,” costs a whopping $969,000.
Pharrell’s Richard Mille watch boasts the likeness of an astronaut on the face, depicted standing on Mars and looking back at Earth. From there, the skeletonized titanium hands mimic shuttle launch platforms. Red gold is used to decorate the surface of Mars on the face, while diamonds are also incorporated at the astronaut’s helmet.
W magazine points out that the timepiece looks like an homage to Daft Punk, whom Pharrell famously worked with on the 2013 hit, “Get Lucky.”
