In line with their longstanding relationship – crossing the milestone of its 10th anniversary this year – Rafael Nadal has once again taken to the French Open with a Richard Mille timepiece on his wrist. This time around, it’s the all-new iteration of his namesake: the Richard Mille RM 27-04 Tourbillon Rafael Nadal, which is valued at over US$1 million.
Featuring a calibre RM27-04 manual winding tourbillon movement, 38-hour power reserve, a simply gorgeous carbon-titanium case, and capable of withstanding up to 12,000Gs – or 1,333x more g-force than an F-16 Fighting Falcon fighter jet – similar to previous iterations of the RM 27 that found their way onto Nadal’s wrist, the RM 27-04 is about both form and function.
As you may recall, Rafa famously won his eleventh French Open back in 2018 while wearing a Richard Mille RM 27-03 sporting the colourway of his nation’s flag. That hot limited-edition number was capable of withstanding 10,000Gs and then valued at US$725,000. Previous to that during the 2015 French Open, Rafa rocked up with an RM 27-03 then valued at US$775,000.
The Richard Mille RM 27-04 Tourbillon Rafael Nadal will be limited to just 50 pieces worldwide. Hit the link below for more.
