Things like watches with a tiger and dragon facing off in front of a tourbillon, or having the pop culture-accurate Richard Mille RM 26-02 Evil Eye replica watch enveloped in flames are odd themes which actually can distract people from appreciating just how insanely detailed they are.
Richard Mille replica watches highly successful sense of pure audacity pays off again with the RM 26-02 Evil Eye tourbillon replica watch that is no doubt visually inspired by the “Eye of Sauron” from the modern Lord Of The Rings Trilogy of movies. That sort of makes sense if you think about it. “Make a watch with an evil eye it. Don’t forget, budget is no issue.”
Of course, the RM 26-02 Evil Eye replica watch is not at all officially related to Lord Of The Rings, but it might as well be what is probably the most expensive wearable homage to J.R.R. Tolkein’s universe yet. Officially, the Richard Mille Evil Eye replica watch is about the “evil eye” concept that has historically existed in various religions and cultures for eons. Apparently, in some cultures, it is said that the only way to ward off the evil eye is with your own evil eye.
From a design perspective, the Richard Mille RM 26-02 replica watch is somewhere between men’s and women’s -sized. I am actually pretty sure it is considered a unisex replica watch – perhaps it was the satin-style strap. Actually, on a matter rubber strap this could be a lot more of a macho Richard Mille RM 26-02 Evil Eye replica watch.
The RM 26-02 replica watch case is produced from 18k red gold as well as black ceramic. Richard Mille uses a high grade of ceramic that is finely polished and given beveled edges. The combination of materials works well as they contrast with each other nicely and work with the dark and fiery theme of the evil eye dial. The case is about 40mm wide and about 48mm tall being 13mm thick. That isn’t per se small, but among the smaller modern Richard Mille replica watches though the curved tonneau-style case wraps around the wrist very comfortably.
