Richard Mille launches the Tourbillon RM 27-02 Rafael Nadal
When one of the world's tennis greats meets one of the world's best watchmakers, what could come about but a watch that is as sporty as it is functional?

This year, Rafael Nadal is gunning for his 10th victory at the 114th French Open — an impressive track record that is a testament to his sheer hard work and tenacity. Inspired by his never-say-die attitude, Swiss watchmaker Richard Mille has created a special, limited-edition watch to commemorate the tennis giant's achievements.

The Richard Mille Tourbillon RM 27-02 Rafael Nadal

The Richard Mille Tourbillon RM 27-02 Rafael Nadal is dedicated to his spirit of excellence, and the craftsmanship shows: The body is made of a specialised carbon that is resistant to micro-cracks, and it is also the very first skeletonised baseplate where the caseband and baseplate have been fused into a single piece. With only 50 pieces in the world, the watch is reserved for serious collectors and, to cap off this tribute, Nadal himself will be wearing this model for international matches.
