Nadal shows off £780k Richard-Mille in French Open
The world No2, 34, received a brand-new custom timepiece from his sponsors at luxury watchmakers Richard
Mille worth a staggering £780,000.
The watch, with “RAFA” embossed on the side, has a black case and face with an orange dial and light blue strap,
which matches his Nike outfit for the tournament.
There is even a steel wire that crisscrosses across the face 38 times to create the effect of a tennis racket’s string pattern. It is the first watch worn by a tennis player to top the $1million milestone.
Nadal shows off £780k Richard-Mille, The Swiss designers have only made 50 of the exclusive watch
which marks the tenth anniversary of their
partnership with Nadal, appropriately naming it the RM 27-04 Tourbillon Rafael Nadal.
On the Richard Mille website, the watch is described as “unique in more ways than one” and can withstand up to 12,000 Gs of force.
