What's the story behind the RM 35-03 watch from Richard Mille and Rafael Nadal
After many years of friendship between watch brand Richard Mille and tennis player Rafael Nadal, their new collaboration is a natural one: a sports watch that combines technology and performance.
The various collaborations between Richard Mille and Rafael Nadal since 2008, including the "RM27" series, the new RM 35-03 Automatique Rafael Nadal is the fourth installment in the series and continues by introducing a patented innovation, the butterfly rotor this series.replica bubba watson watches
“We both strive for excellence in our respective fields. We speak the same language as Richard. I think it’s important to be passionate about what we do every day. Even if I’m not wearing the RM 035 collection in competition, I’m happy to feel The trust he and his team have placed in me has allowed me to contribute to this unique adventure," explained the 21-time Grand Slam champion.
After three years of research and development, the new butterfly-shaped oscillating weight of the RM 35-03 allows the wearer to directly intervene in the geometry of the oscillating weight by controlling the winding of the movement, according to his lifestyle and activities. It consists of two grade 5 titanium arms topped by heavy metal blocks, activated by an independent gear train controlled by a button.Replica Zenith Watches
In their initial position, these masses create a radial displacement of the center of gravity around the perimeter, generating the torque necessary to wind the barrel with every movement of the wrist. A simple pressure on the pusher at 7 o'clock causes the rotor gear train to move the two counterweights 180°. The center of gravity then returns to the centre: the rotor balances, suspending the winding process and thus avoiding overwinding of the movement.
“Until now, all modifications to the rotor geometry had to be done by one of our authorized watchmakers. We wanted to optimize this system by giving the wearer the opportunity to directly intervene in the winding of the replica skull watch [...] just like driver adjustments The behavior of the car to adapt to city use or to activate the sport mode on the track,” said Salvador Arbona, technical director of movement at Richard Mille.
RM 35-03 Rafael Nadal Automatic Rafael Nadal is available in two versions: blue quartz TPT with white quartz TPT case, and white quartz TPT and carbon fiber TPT with carbon fiber TPT case. The movement has a power reserve of approximately 55 hours and can be admired from both sides of the case through the sapphire glass. The bridges and bridges are made of grade 5 titanium and are treated with gray plasma and PVD to accentuate the graphic character of the watch.Audemars Piguet replica watches
