Rafael Nadal Wears Richard Mille Tourbillon For Another Victory

150Tennis champ Rafael Nadal was victorious yet again at the recent Abierto Mexicano Telcel tournament in Acapulco. Nadal, a Richard Mille brand partner since 2010, won the top prize while wearing the brand’s new RM 27-01 Tourbillon Rafael Nadal. After a seven-month hiatus due to an injury, this victory earned Nadal his 52nd title.

The RM 27-01 was first unveiled in Geneva during SIHH as the “the world’s lightest tourbillon” (19 grams strap included). The RM 27-01 was created by Richard Mille in collaboration with Nadal, like the RM 027 Tourbillon and the RM 035 Chronofiable® certified before it. The movement is held in total suspension at its heart, with a baseplate attached to the case by four braided steel cables just 0.35 mm in diameter. The caliber can withstand accelerations of over 5,000 Gs.

The RM 27-01, available in carbon nanotubes and supplied on a velcro strap, is available in a limited edition of 50 timepieces.
