Showcasing the Richard Mille Watch Designed in Collaboration with Rafael Nadal | The Luxury Sales

Geneva | 12 May 2024

Explore the pinnacle of innovation and athleticism with the Richard Mille RM27-01, a testament to the partnership between tennis legend Rafael Nadal and luxury watchmaker Richard Mille. Born from their collaboration, this exceptional timepiece is the culmination of years of research and development, resulting in the creation of one of the world's lightest tourbillon wristwatches.

Crafted with the utmost precision, this RM27-01 weighs an astonishing 19 grams, including its strap, with the movement itself tipping the scales at a mere 3.5 grams. Tested rigorously by Nadal during the tennis season, this ultra-lightweight tourbillon remained unfazed by the most extreme movements and shocks encountered on the court.

This Richard Mille watch takes centre court at the Important Watches: Part I auction, taking place at Sotheby's Geneva on 12 May.
