The limited-edition RM 68-01 Tourbilion Cyril Kongo is a colorful watch design that was created in a collaboration between Richard Mille and street artist Cyril Kongo. The hand-painted watch pieces feature the colorful designs of Cyril Kongo, which was a significant challenge to create. The artist says: "It took the development of special tools and over a year of experimentation for me to be capable of painting on a watch some five centimeters square." Some pieces within the watch are no more than a few millimeters in length, which indicates how much time and attention went into creating the details of this aesthetically pleasing design.

The dynamic watch face is framed by a NTPT carbon case, a TZP ceramic bezel and Grade 5 Titanium screws.

Only 30 editions of the striking RM 68-01 Tourbilion Cyril Kongo have been produced.
