The TEMPUS TIME TEMPLE All‐Black Commemorative CollectionI'm not sure what happened or when but it seems everyone and their mother wants an all black watch these days. Whether it's PVD coated, carbonized, ceramic or whatever, people want to be apart of the horological Blacksploitation of luxury timepieces. So...that brings me to the September 2007 Tempus "Temple of Time" watch festival in Singapore. Put together by The Hour Glass, it's the largest watch event in Asia and likely becoming one of the most influential. KokChoon of Horomundi.com has detailed the information for this All Black series here-->Link
He's also has taken some great photographs of the prototype black PVD RM016 by Richard Mille (shown above) and more here-->Link
The RM016, encased in special micro-sandblasted, titanium, features a skeletonized automatic winding movement with hours, minutes, date and adjustable rotor geometry. The design allows the wearer to optimize and personalize the movement's winding mechanism to suit both sporting and non-sporting environments. Edition of 25PDF
