Back in 2019, Pharrell set off watch aficionados' radars with an ultra-exclusive Richard Mille timepiece, the RM 52-05 Tourbillon Pharrell Williams Sapphire.

Limited to merely 30 pieces, the timepiece was pretty special for Mille, which doesn't often partner with its many celebrity fans to create watches for sale.

To be fair, it wasn't Pharrell's first Mille, either.

In fact, Mille and Pharrell's partnership is so special that the pair have reconvened for a follow-up to the signature timepiece, of sorts.

COARSE was brought on to create "Distant Bliss," a bespoke sculpture that only owners of the RM 52-05 Tourbillon Pharrell Williams Sapphire can purchase.

And, even then, you aren't guaranteed one: 30 editions of Pharrell's Mille watches were made but only 15 iterations of "Distant Bliss" exist, so this thing is twice is exclusive (I think that math checks out).

But what is "Distant Bliss?" Handmade in LA, the 14"-tall resin sculpture channels Pharrell's obsession with outer space (see: the Billionaire Boys Club logo and Star Trak) by way of an inverted astronaut character.

Paradoxically lifting off even as he's weighed down by balloons, the little figure wears a backpack that matches Richard Mille's tonneu shape. "Distant Bliss" also comes with a display stand made by Ault Studio, so the 15 owners can flex on the 15 other people who had the chance to cop but missed out.

Richard Mille watches are some of the most collectible timepieces on the market and hold their value especially well, outpacing many other luxury players.

With "Distant Bliss" in play, Pharrell's Mille may have outpaced even the most in-demand Milles — hard not to imagine the watch and sculpture being offered as some kind of record-breaking combo pack at auction eventually.
