Sep 17, 2010
On September 13, 2010, Rafael Nadal defeated Novak Djokovic on court at Flushing Meadows in the final of the US Open. This victory brought the champion tennis player his ninth Grand Slam title. Following his victories at Roland Garros and Wimbledon tournaments, for the 3rd time in a row, the winner held the trophy aloft with the Richard Mille RM 027 Tourbillon watch on his wrist.

The 24-year old tennis star became the youngest player of the Open Era to gain victories in all four Grand Slam tournaments.

Rafael Nadals remarkable victory was witnessed by the RM 027 Tourbillon watch. And not by chance - the timepiece is the lightest mechanical watch ever created. It is the first timekeeper to be featured on the wrist of a player in a Grand Slam.

Besides its extremely light weight equal to just 18 grams with the strap, the Richard Mille watch boasts utmost shock-resistance and offers supreme comfort on the wrist. The watch was born following years of thorough research. It has been conceived using high-tech materials, including LITAL for the moving parts and a carbon-based composite for the case. The reliability of the celebrity watch has been tested during a top-level tennis match. The timepiece is limited to 50 pieces.

Rafael Nadal took an active part in designing and developing of the Richard Mille watch to make sure it can perfectly withstand the most violent of blows during a tennis game.
