Pharrell’s ultra-exclusive Richard Mille timepiece, the RM 52-05 Tourbillon Pharrell Williams Sapphire, first topped every watch collector’s wish list in 2019.

A longtime fan of Richard Mille as well as the television series Star Trek, Pharrell drew from his lifelong fascination with space for the US$1 million wristwatch, which was limited to 30 pieces worldwide.

The award-winning singer, songwriter and producer allegedly befriended the brand’s owner after Mille heard Pharrell’s 2006 single Can I Have It Like That. The line, “She knows the time she sees the Richard Mille,” caught the watchmaker’s attention, who insisted the two meet.

Fast forward to today and the duo have collaborated once again on a bespoke sculpture that only owners of the RM 52-05 Tourbillon Pharrell Williams Sapphire can purchase.

Titled Distant Bliss, the 14-inch resin sculpture depicts a figure that closely resembles Pharrell floating upwards despite being anchored by balloons. The artwork was handmade in Los Angeles by artist duo Coarse and presented in a display stand made by Ault Studio.
