Rafael Nadal wears Richard Mille RM 27-04 Tourbillon to win the French Open Championship
Watch sports partnerships are nothing new, although not every day an athlete wears a sponsored watch to win the highest title in his or her field. However, the Spanish tennis star Rafael Nadal did just that, wearing the Richard Mille RM 27-04 Tourbillon Rafael Nadal and winning this year’s French Open and relying on that victory. , Won his 20th Grand Slam Championship. This year is the 10th year of continuous cooperation between Nadal and Richard Mille. The watch named after the star is the latest version of the brand’s “Extreme Watchmaking”, designed to deal with Nadal’s personal style.
Looking closely at the RM 27-04 tourbillon, we will find the familiar replica Richard Mille silhouette, which contains many special elements designed for Nadal. The barrel-shaped case is 38.4 mm wide and 47.25 mm long. Despite its intimidating existence, this watch is very close to the wrist, only 11.4 mm thick, with eight bezel screws, an overall sporty style and a prominent orange crown.
The polished and sandblasted case itself is made of an ultra-light material called TitaCarb, a high-performance polyamide made of 38.5% carbon fiber with a tensile strength of 370 MPa (3,700 kg/cm²). Richard Mille claims to make it one of the most resistant polymers in the world. Perhaps the most impressive feature of the case is its lightness and durability. It weighs only 30 grams (including the strap). It is light enough to float in water, but it is durable enough to withstand the force generated by Nadal’s wrist.

On the dial, we found the hollow appearance, which was inspired directly by the string on the tennis racket. The tourbillon movement in the string occupies the center position-this is a unique structure in the watch industry. As for what happened technically, the tourbillon movement (also known as RM 27-04) is supported by a micro-blasted mesh, with a surface area of only 855 square millimeters, entirely composed of a single 0.27 mm-diameter braided steel cable, braided on the dial 38 times, and fixed by two 5N gold tensioners after PVD treatment. Then, the safety movement powers the red pointed hollow hands of the watch, which indicate the time through the red outer ring minute and hour hands on the edge of the dial. The movement is manually wound with a power reserve of 38 hours and can be viewed through the sapphire case back.
