Richard Mille has teamed up with tennis star Rafael Nadal to release the Tourbillion RM 27-02 Rafael Nadal watch.
The timepiece distinguishes itself with a "unibody" baseplate in NTPT carbon. Not only is the carbon excellent at resisting microcracks, it also fuses the caseband and baseplate into a single piece to enhance rigidity and resistance. In addition, the watch features bridges in grade 5 titanium, backing up the impressive mechanical heart that is capable of running for more than 70 hours.
The carefully designed finish protects the black-and-white watch from high temperatures and electromagnetic waves.
The RM 27-02 is limited to 50 pieces, and exclusively reserved for those closest to the brand.
