Richard Mille shock the watch world for its revolutionary watch-making skills in the manufacture of the most precise watch. As a watch fans of the Richard Mille, you must known that the Rafael Nadal is the only tennis player in history to have won a single Grand Slam tournament nine times. It is not no confusion that Richard Mille presents the latest evolution of the model each year dedicated to “Rafa” few days in advance of this major tournament, the French Open or Roland Garros, as it was named after the French aviator and World War I fighter pilot.
In the Richard Mille watch collection, the new replica Richard Mille RM 35-02 Rafael Nadal is the first piece to feature an automatic calibre whose distinctive traits are lightness and shock-resistance. As same to the earlier watch models, the RM 35-02 Rafael Nadal is a demonstration of Richard Mille’s capability to innovate, from the RM 27-01 with its cable-suspended movement to the RM 27-02 with its NTPT Carbon unibody’ baseplate.
Inspired by the RM 35-01, the RM 35-02 replica was equipped with a Nadal calibre with self-winding mechanism at the heart. Designed it with its patented variable geometry rotor for making it possible to adapt the winding to the user’s activity level. That watch is powered by the new RMAL1 calibre, the base plate and bridges are the great result of wet-sandblasted grade 5 titanium, it is treated with PVD/Titalyt and stretched to ensure smooth surfaces.
The titanium rotor’s inertia is modified, either slowing it down in case of intense activity, or speeding up the winding process in the case of minimal arm and hand movements, by adjusting the six positional setting of the rib’s placement.
Richard Mille RM 35-02 Rafael Nadal replica is achieved with a sapphire crystal in caseback which sport an anti-reflective treatment so that the calibre may be admired from every angle. That watch appears in 49.94 x 44.50 x 13.15 mm case available in either NTPT Carbon or a new bright Quartz-TPT Red with white highlights, both designed for exceptional biocompatibility, stability and resistance.
