GAME, SET AND MATCH
As Rafael Nadal arrives on court, attempting to win his tenth Roland-Garros, Richard Mille has unveiled the watch the champion will be wearing during the tournament: the highly colourful RM 27-03.
Flashback to 2010: Rafael Nadal creates a sensation at the Roland-Garros tournament in Paris with a watch made by Richard Mille and weighing no more than 20 grams, including the strap. This year, the doubles team of Rafael Nadal and Richard Mille have made a striking return to the clay courts. The Spanish tennis player will be wearing some cutting-edge technology and a precision mechanism in a concentrated form: the RM 27-03. Their strengths? A powerful service with the help of a manual winding mechanism and a comfortable power reserve of 70 hours. A forehand of remarkable intensity, like the machined Quartz TPT® case and its bright colours evoking the Spanish flag. And a backhand that is as precise as the watch’s tourbillon mechanism.
And to maintain the momentum just like Rafa, the RM 27-03 can absorb shocks of up to 10 000g – twice as much as the RM50-03 McLaren F1 unveiled at the last SIHH in Geneva! Enough to resist any shots from future opponents and all the twists and turns during a rally…
