Lot Essay

Resulting from extensive research and the use of new materials, the Richard Mille RM35-01 wristwatch perpetuates the tradition of highly technical and extremely lightweight wristwatches bearing the name of the acclaimed tennis sportsman Rafael Nadal. By first developing the RM027, the lightest mechanical tourbillon wristwatch, the manufacturer marked the industry by offering a timepiece assembled with ground breaking materials enabling it to weight only 18 grams.

Also bearing the name of the famed tennis player, the present timepiece represents the latest evolution of the RM35 wristwatch and participates in proving that it is possible to create an ultra-light and highly-complex mechanism able to withstand extreme conditions at the highest-level of competition.

With a case made of NTPT carbon and secured by spline screws in grade 5 titanium, the timepiece provides a unique appearance, while being assembled with the rigorously tested and highly accurate RMUL3 caliber, guarantee for reliability and adaptability to various situations
