If you know anything about tennis, then you must have heard about Rafael Nadal by now, otherwise known as the “King of Clay” due to his incredible performance on clay courts. In order to celebrate his participation in this year’s French Open, the famed athlete has decided to collaborate with Richard Mille for the outstanding RM 35-02 timepiece, which is the first watch in Richard Mille’s Rafael Nadal collection to boast an automatic caliber.
Inspired by successful models such as the RM 35-01, this piece is powered by a RMAL1 calibre, and it flaunts a baseplate and ridges in wet-sandblasted grade 5 titanium that received a PVD/Titalyt treatment for a plus of smoothness and durability. As far as aesthetics are concerned, the watch comes in bright Quartz TPT-Red with white touches, or in TPT Carbon. We should also mention its water resistance of up to 164 feet, its 55-hour power reserve and the $136,370 price tag, which is fully justified.
