Worn by ten­nis star and Friend of the Brand Rafael Nadal through­out the 2015 sport­ing sea­son, the Richard Mille RM 27-02 tourbillon pro­to­type met its es­ti­mate of be­tween 600,000 and 700,000 Swiss francs at the auc­tion. It was in this horologe that the brand un­veiled its very first uni­body skele­tonised base­plate, which in­creases rigid­ity and shock re­sis­tance. The time­piece was sold to­gether with the out­fit worn (and au­to­graphed) by Nadal at the US Open.
