The main innovation of this extraordinary watch lies in the capacity of its tourbillon calibre to withstand shocks up to 10,000g's.
This new threshold has been attained thanks to years of R&D and countless hours of tests.
Limited edition of 50 pieces
Richard Mille & Rafael Nadal
A shared seek of excellence.

The RM 27-03 reconciles innovations at the level of materials with a testament to horological architecture.
The striking red and yellow hues of its Quartz TPT® case that pay homage to Rafa’s native Spain.
The newest tourbillon to join the collection is worn by Rafael Nadal: at 18.83 grams, the RM 27-01 becomes the lightest tourbillon in the world, a title it holds to this day.
For Rafa, 2013 is a red-letter year in which he sweeps 10 titles on the circuit.
Aesthetically, the timepiece alludes to the Spanish tennis champion’s masterful character. Roland-Garros was an obvious choice of venue to present this new timepiece.
Barrel pawl with progressive recoil.
This device permits an appreciable winding gain (circa 20%), especially during the start of winding. It also promotes the even distribution of the mainspring’s internal tension.
Richard Mille has tremendous admiration for this pillar of motorsports, and its founder.
Spline screws in titanium
This permits better control of the torque applied to the screws during assembly. These screws are therefore unaffected by physical manipulation during assembly or disassembly and age well.
Fast rotating barrel
Provides an excellent delta of the mainspring curve.
Ideal power reserve / performance / regularity ratio.
Unibody Baseplate in Carbon TPT®
The skeletonised baseplate is a feat of machining.
A master component of the RM 27-03, it has been subjected to a full battery of extreme approval tests in order to optimise its mechanical properties.
Manual winding tourbillon movement
Power reserve: circa 70 hours (+ 10%)
