Swiss watchmaker Richard Mille is created a new product to honor its decade-long relationship with professional tennis player Rafael Nadal. Even though the new “Tourbillion” watch weighs just over one ounce, it is extremely durable. The strength of the watch was inspired by Nadals’ tennis background, as the internal mesh is strung like a tennis racket. Although you may want to grab one of these watches for your collection, you may be out of luck as only fifty were created, all costing over one-million dollars a piece.
- The master craftsmen responsible for constructing the timepiece painstakingly anchored that gossamer cable to a tensioner positioned at 5 o’clock.
- Polished titanium hooks then secure the diagonally placed, skeletonized movement (with 19 jewels and a 38-hour power reserve) to the secure network.
- Limited to just 50 pieces, the RM 27-04 is available exclusively at Richard Mille boutiques worldwide for $1,050,000.00.
“The configuration is unprecedented in the world of haute horology and in keeping with the watchmaker’s athletic aesthetic.”
