Rafael Nadal and Richard Mille cre­ated the RM 27-02 with an ex­tra­or­di­nary tour­bil­lon cal­iber, launched to­gether dur­ing the French Open.

Named the Tour­bil­lon Rafael Nadal, this watch al­lowed the brand to make ma­jor ad­vances in terms of move­ment con­struc­tion with a monobloc base­plate of which the case­band is an in­te­gral part – never ap­plied be­fore in watch­mak­ing, ex­tremely tech­ni­cal TPT™ quartz was used for the first time for the case. In terms of shock re­sis­tance, the tour­bil­lon cal­i­bre re­sists shocks of up to 5,000g. This watch is very im­por­tant for the brand and de­fines a new ar­chi­tec­tural ap­proach within the Richard Mille range, em­pha­sis­ing the depth of the move­ment by the three-di­men­sion­al­ity of each com­po­nent. The “Lucky RM Charm” has be­come a ne­ces­sity for Nadal who is known for his rituals. The 2015 Richard Mille/Rafael Nadal sea­son was also marked by the auc­tion of their RM 27-02 pro­to­type at Only Watch with all pro­ceeds go­ing to­wards Luc Pet­tavino's foun­da­tion.
