Rafael Nadal and Richard Mille RM 027 - Remarkable Victory

Jun 10, 2010
On Sunday June 6, 2010, Rafael Nadal won his 5th Roland Garros trophy by defeating Robin Soderling in straight sets. It was a logical victory, since this accomplished tennis player didnít drop a set for the entire tournament.

This overwhelming success entailed the unquestionable triumph of the RM 027 tourbillon, a timepiece, created by Richard Mille for Rafael Nadal. A true accomplishment in the time-keeping art, this model was exposed on this sportsmanís wrist in the course of all his matches on Roland Garrosí clay courts.

Submitted to the harsh trials of competition, the Richard Mille RM 027 watch came out with flying colors and therefore, is ready to accompany the Roland Garros champion in his important international tournaments.

By launching this timepiece, Richard Mille has achieved a remarkable technical feat: the weight of this model constitutes just 18 grams, including the strap. Powered by a manual winding tourbillon movement, this watch, the lightest in the world, is ideally suited for the tough playing style of Rafael Nadal.

The lightness of this model is attainable due to Lital alloy, a high lithium content alloy, employed in the manufacturing of its movement. The alloy mixture contains aluminum, copper, magnesium and zirconium. Due to the addition of Lithium, one of the lightest elements, the mechanism acquires great strength without gaining unnecessary weight. This exclusive movement is enclosed in a case, crafted from carbon-based extremely resistant material, which is also extremely light, yet very solid.

The Richard Mille RM 027 watch will be a perfect companion for Rafael Nadal on his road to even greater success.
