Richard Mille debuts first self-winding watch in the Rafael Nadal collection


Rafael Nadal is widely known as the “King of Clay” a title that references his skill as a tennis player on clay courts. So of course, in the days before the most famous clay court tournament – the French Open- the athlete has joined Swiss watchmaker Richard Mille in presenting RM 35-02. This is the first watch in the Richard Mille’s Rafael Nadal collection to be equipped with an automatic calibre.

This watch is inspired by previous models like the RM 35-01 and was created in response to the demand for a Nadal watch with a self-winding movement. This watch is powered by the new RMAL1 calibre and includes a baseplate and ridges in wet-sandblasted grade 5 titanium that’s been PVD/Titalyt treated and stretched to ensure rigidity and smoothness.

A free sprung balance with variable inertia ensures greater resistance to shocks while the patented variable geometry rotor makes it possible to adjust the winding to suit the wearer’s activities. The watch is available in a bright Quartz TPT-Red with white highlights or TPT Carbon. The watch comes with a power reserve of 55 hours and is water resistant to 50 meters.
