Rafael Nadal is the only tennis player in history to win a single Grand Slam event nine times. Every year Richard Mille presents the latest model of the “Rafa” a few days before the French Open or French Open, which is normal as it is named after the French pilot and WWI fighter pilot.
The new Richard Mille RM 35-02 Rafael Nadal is the first watch in the collection to feature an automatic movement and is unique in its lightness and shock resistance.
Like its predecessors, from the RM 27-01 with cable suspension movement to the RM 27-02 – RM 35-02 Rafael Nadal with NTPT Carbon unibody baseplates, Richard Mille’s innovative capabilities are proven.
Powered by the new RMAL1 movement, the baseplate and bridges are made of wet sandblasted grade 5 titanium, PVD/Titalyt treated and stretched to ensure a smooth finish. Its variable inertia balance wheel oscillates at 28,800 vph and is driven by a twin-barrel system that provides a power reserve of 55 hours.
Inspired by the RM 35-01, the RM 35-02 was designed in response to a customer request for a self-winding mechanism at the heart of the Nadal movement. Richard Mille opted for its patented variable geometry rotor, which allows the windings to adapt to the user’s activity level.
By adjusting the six position settings of the rib position, the inertia of the titanium rotor is altered, speeding up the winding process with minimal arm and hand movement, or slowing it down during vigorous activity (such as Rafael Nathan Dahl is playing) a game).
Another first for the Nadal collection, the case back is protected by an anti-reflective sapphire crystal, so that the movement can be admired from all angles. Best fake watch
The new watch’s 49.94 x 44.50 x 13.15 mm case will be available in NTPT Carbon Fiber or the new Bright Quartz-TPT Red with white highlights, both of which offer outstanding biocompatibility, stability and durability.
These materials consist of multiple layers of parallel filaments obtained by splitting carbon fibers or silica threads. The layers – up to a thickness of 45 microns – are impregnated with resin, then woven on a special machine and heated to 120° under a pressure of 6 bar. At this point, the material is ready to be processed on the CNC machines at Richard Mille‘s ProArt case factory.
