Richard Mille RM 35-02 Rafael Nadal

Marina Milojević | 05.20.16 | 03:47 AM

Richard Mille has just introduced a new watch to its famous Rafael Nadal line. The partnership between the haute horlogerie brand and the famous tennis player, which began back in 2008, served as a starting point for some of the most extraordinary creations in contemporary watchmaking.

The new RM 30-02 is designed in response to a request from many Richard Mille customers and watch collectors for a self-winding movement at the heart of the Rafael Nadal Calibre.  As the brand’s ambassador, Rafael Nadal was also an integral part of the design and testing processes of the watch, which will certainly be remembered as the first automatic watch in the collection.

The new Richard Mille RM 35-02 Rafael Nadal is powered by the new RMAL1 calibre, and housed in a gorgeous red-colored case made of Quartz-TPT. The material is exclusively produced by a company called NTPT (North Thin Ply Technology). If you take a closer look you’ll notice that a surface shows extremely regular undulations – layers of red and undyed quartz. The layers are impregnated with resin and heated to 120C at a pressure of 6 bars, before the material is ready to be processed on a CNC machine.

The watch without a dial provides a glimpse at the base plate and bridges in wet-sandblasted grade 5 titanium. The components of the movement have been PVD/Titalyt® treated and stretched to ensure supreme rigidity, and reveal smooth surfaces. The heavily skeletonized movement features a double barrel system, which contributes to the torque stability over a longer period of time, and improved long-term performance. For the first time for this collection, the wearer can also admire the movement from the exhibition case-back! The case back reveals Richard Mille’s patented variable geometry rotor, which allows the rewinding of the mainspring to be adapted to the user’s activity level.

The movement operates at a rate of 28,800 vibrations per hour, and provides about 55 hours of power reserve. The case protects it from the ingress of water to up to 50 meters, ensured by two Nitril O-ring seals. The RM 35-02 Rafael Nadal is available in either bright Quartz-TPT RED with white highlights, or NTPT Carbon. – both with a yellow rubber strap. The price for this watch is 135,000 CHF.
