Coinciding with the French Open in Paris, Richard Mille gave Rafael Nadal a brand new model from his own collection. I hope that the brightly colored and technologically innovative “tourbillon anti-vibration” timepiece can provide the champion with the stamina to win again and bring new ambitions to our watch lovers.
Since 2010, Richard Mille has been developing timepieces specifically for Rafael Nadal, and this is their fourth watch collaboration. The Spanish tennis star has seen all this on the playing field at different moments in his career. We reviewed the previous model “RM 35-02 Rafael Nadal Quartz-TPT” on our blog, which was launched last year. Back to Roland Garros, we also reviewed the ladies’ watch designed by Steffi Fraff for Longines.
However, this latest work not only maintains the high standards of the brand, but also breaks the watch record by pushing the industry standard forward in terms of shock resistance. After years of repeated pendulum impact tests and simulating the linear acceleration caused by sudden movements, they finally reached the milestone of watchmaking and became the first model that can withstand and resist shocks up to 10,000g!
In scientific terms, g-force (representing gravity) is a measurement used to calculate how the level of acceleration changes the perception of weight. Therefore, in essence, when an object is pushed by the surface of another object to produce g-force acceleration, the reaction force of this push will produce equal and opposite weight for each unit of the object’s mass. So, for example, when a pilot says that he is flying at “8 grams”, it means that he feels his weight is 8 times his actual weight.
There is no doubt that this is a work worthy of being recognized by one of the greatest athletes in the history of tennis. This may only be made by Richard Mille fake and their R&D pioneers!
The 40 mm case is made of the patented Quartz TPT ® with a strong back cover. Its alternating red and yellow waves are clearly a tribute to Rafah’s motherland, Spain. However, the process of achieving this color mixing is achieved by impregnating a thin layer of silica that is only 45 microns thick with a colored resin, which follows a proprietary process developed by North Thin Ply Technology in Switzerland, which combines The threads are stacked in layers to reach 120°C. These quartz fibers provide the best strength/weight ratio, in addition to their anti-allergic and high UV resistance.
It is also equipped with a torque-limiting crown, which has an additional safety system to prevent accidental over-winding and damage to the winding stem, or simply exerting extremely unfavorable pressure on the main barrel. The crown is also made of carbon quartz TPT and carved to resemble a tennis ball. This fake watches form china is water resistant to 50 meters (164 feet).
The time is displayed on the hollow dial with small red dotted hour index markers and a series of smaller yellow minute index markers, which surround the dial near the bezel. There are also two grade 5 titanium alloy splints that span the rapidly rotating barrel and the winding tourbillon, realigned to form a stylish V shape on the dial; and the upper flange of the dial is also made of Carbon PT®.
Richard Mille RM 27-03 Rafael Nadal
This “Richard Mille RM 27-03 Rafael Nadal” (reference number: RM27-03 CA-FQ) is driven by a manual-winding mechanical tourbillon movement with a 27-03 caliber, 19 jewels and 21,600 vph. It has a free-spring balance wheel with variable inertia and shock resistance of up to 10,000 G. When fully wound, this timepiece has a power reserve of up to 70 hours.
