The collaboration between Rafael Nadal and Richard Mille opened a successful title page: On the tennis court, Nadal from Mallorca won the French Open Championship for the seventh time in 2012; in terms of watches, In addition to launching the RM 027 Rafael Nadal tourbillon watch that shakes the watch industry with ultra-light weight, Richard Mille also launched the RM 035 Rafael Nadal watch that can withstand acceleration of 5000 G without affecting its performance. Excellent performance and certified by Chronofiable®.
The movement of RM27-01 is an astonishing masterpiece of engineering and technology. The first architectural structure is extremely complicated, born of Richard Mille’s determination to develop a watch with the movement placed in the center of the case by hanging. Richard Mille took inspiration from the structural engineering of the suspended bridge structure and expressed his willingness to apply such a structural design to the world of watches only a few tens of millimeters wide. After several months of meticulous research and development, Richard Mille’s engineers finally embody this avant-garde design concept and have achieved the most innovative building structure in recent years.
The plate of the RM 27-01 Rafael Nadal Tourbillon watch is connected to the case by four steel cables. The braided steel cable is only 0.35 mm thick. Combining rigidity and toughness, this structure protects a movement that weighs only 3.5 grams. The reason why the weight of the movement can be greatly reduced is mainly based on the application of high-end materials: the bridge plate and the tourbillon frame are made of five-level titanium alloy, and the spring box bridge plate and gear mechanism are made of aluminum lithium alloy.
The RM 27-01 weighs only 19 grams and includes a Velcro® strap! This light body also comes from the application of the case material. The RM 27-01 case with a one-piece case structure is made of carbon material. The dark gray color comes from the high-concentration carbon nanotubes in the structure, which brings perfect impact resistance and scratch resistance, and provides Rafael Nadal’s indispensable wearing comfort in tennis matches. Since then, He will all be wearing the RM 27-01 debut game.
Summary: The main features of a watch are lightness and resistance to speed. The weight of this watch is only 3.5 grams, and it can withstand acceleration of 5000G without affecting the precision timepiece of the watch. The case is made of a very strong dark gray polymer with carbon nanotubes sprayed inside the polymer, which is a combination of rigidity and toughness. The watch is limited to 50 pieces.
