NADAL’S LUXURY WATCH GOES MISSING IN PARIS

The “RM 27-02 Rafael Nadal” is fitted with a brand new, in-house made, hand-wound tourbillon calibre.

Supporting the ensemble of the mechanical movement components is a skeletonized unibody baseplate, the first in the history of Richard Mille, in which the caseband and the baseplate have been fused into a single piece. This structure, inspired by the chassis of racing cars, dramatically enhances rigidity and optimizes shock resistance.

The baseplate supports the titanium bridges that are unique for their three-dimensional construction, their finishes and their titanium and carbon composition. These bridges support the sophisticated hand-wound tourbillon calibre that offers 70 hours of constant power.

The watch’s case is made from NTPT carbon and Quartz TPT, a groundbreaking new material designed and developed by Richard Mille in partnership with North Thin Ply Technology.

This new material, composed of hundreds of layers of quartz filaments piled on top of each other, is meant to offer greater resistance to high temperatures and electromagnetic waves.

The waterproof watch will only have a production run of 50 pieces.
