Rafael Nadal and Richard Mille have been inseparable since their first meeting in 2007. He is “family,” Nadal told us when we sat down with the Tennis Champion last year. The most famous Richard Mille ambassador, who “didn’t want to wear a watch at first,” has since inspired a flurry of highly –complicated sports watches including the 2011 manual-winding RM 035 Rafael Nadal. With Roland-Garros 2015 in their sights, Richard Mille and Rafael Nadal have announced the release of a new limited edition of the now iconic RM 035.
A limited edition of 50 pieces, the new watch will be available exclusively in the Americas. The RM 035 Americas limited edition features new case materials and colorful accents with front and back bezels made from black TZP ceramic and blasted for a matte effect. The caseband is crafted from NTPT carbon, which is composed of multiple layers of woven carbon fibers. A sapphire caseback allows for ideal viewing of the skeletonized RMUL1 caliber. Red and yellow Superluminova accents on the indices and hands complement the bright yellow crown protector and add legibility. The watch is presented on a black rubber strap.
The RM 035 Americas is available exclusively at Richard Mille boutiques in Bal Harbour, Beverly Hills and Las Vegas, as well as authorized Richard Mille retailers throughout the Americas. It is a limited edition of 50 pieces.
