Richard Mille Rafael Nadal replica watches always get the hype and attention they deserve in print and electronic media.
Both the sports channel and the paparazzi began to share news reports about the $100,000 watch worn by Nadal during the game. After all, seeing tennis champions wear such expensive watches in such high-intensity sports is a new thing!
It is not wrong to say that Richard Mille has the lucky talent to pick the winner. Most athletes sponsored by other brands wear official watches to pose for trophies after finishing the competition. And Richard Mille (Richard Mille) ambassadors let their timepieces withstand the most relaxing physical ordeal.
These extraordinary watches are not just for timing athletes who have won trophies. In fact, sports ambassadors like Nadal are a real crash test of timepieces. Other evaluations of the world champion even confirmed that these timepieces can withstand the vibration of the steering wheel in a Formula One car and the gravity generated by the golfer’s swing.
Take Rafa’s Richard Mille fake as an example. The brand hopes to create a tourbillon that can withstand the hammering and impact of a tennis match while weighing less than 20 grams, so that the weight will not interfere with the player’s wrist movement.
The ingenious Richard Mille asked his ambassador to wear a watch during the performance. Therefore, the company continues to create watches that can absorb shocks, withstand various factors, and resist rough wear and tear. Rafael Nadal is no stranger to the world of luxury watches. Since 2010, he has been wearing Richard Mille watches proudly.
The following are Richard Mille Rafael Nadal watches that have recently appeared in the media:
- The orange strap RM27-03 for the 2018 French Open
Nadal won the French Open for the 11th time in 2018. One thing that happened during the game made people notice his most luxurious equipment-his beautiful orange watch.
In the last game, his left hand began to cramp, for which he immediately received physical therapy. After that he continued to massage his hand for a few minutes, when the tennis court camera began to frequently zoom in on his hand and orange watch.
According to Forbes, the Spanish tennis star’s watch is worth $725,000. However, this is still lower than the price of the Richard Mille watch he wore during the French Open in 2015.
The brand only produced 50 pieces of RM27-03. The most impressive feature of this timepiece is its lightweight and flexible structure-it can withstand 5,000 G of gravity.

Although many tennis players are spokespersons for many watch brands, they generally do not wear watches during the game. However, Nadal and Zverev are exceptions to this norm. In 2017, on the wrists of these two champions, Richard Mille watches worth nearly $1.5 million were active on tennis courts.

Every time he participates in a game, this watch will be worn on the new court on his wrist. The case of the RM 27-02 is made of NTPT® carbon and quartz TPT ®. These breakthrough ultra-light materials were jointly developed by the brand and North Thin Ply Technology. Quartz TPT contains more than 600 layers of filaments derived from silica threads. Each thin 45-micron layer is impregnated with a resin specially made for this purpose and placed between the NTPT carbon layers.
- 2015 French Open RM 27-02 Tourbillon

- RM 027 in 2010
In 2010, Nadal started wearing RM 027 2010 worth US$525,000. The media was full of stories about Nadal. There are two reasons for the media hype:
1) It is very unusual and unusual for a tennis player to wear a timepiece during a game. People think that wearing a timepiece when you need excellent performance and speed is a very absurd idea. One can even see people taking off their watches just to type. However, according to Nadal, it is like wearing nothing, as if the watch is part of his skin.
2) Watches are very expensive! The RM 027 uses a classic Richard Mille tonneau-shaped case, which is less than 40 mm wide and weighs less than 4 grams with a strap. Inside the watch is a complex mechanical movement with a tourbillon complex function. There are other decorative features in the watch to make it weigh less than 20 grams.
Interesting facts about Richard Mille Rafael Nadal watches
According to tennis writer Perrotta, Nadal has lost two RM watches. Apparently, the watch was stolen. However, one of them was later recovered. When a teammate found it in the locker room, he also almost lost the third.
The idea of creating this exquisite timepiece is to bring the tourbillon into the arena, which can withstand hours of impact on the clay court. This watch can withstand shocks including hundreds of G force while remaining incredibly lightweight and completely comfortable-this is a real challenge for any tourbillon movement.
From 2010 to 2018, Richard Mille has been pushing the original RM 027 to keep up with the changing technology. These breakthrough ultimate sports timepieces-recognized by famous athletes such as Rafael Nadal-will change our perception of watches. The fact that the timepiece can be worn all the time and can withstand strong vibration and gravity gives the brand a serious street credibility.
