Rafael Nadal Sports RM 027 for French Open

The considerable fortune spent on luxury watches implies an immaculate care so this piece of horology never endures even the slightest bump or scratch. But then we see tennis champion Rafael Nadal swinging a racket with a Richard Mille 027 secured on his right arm. How does he dare do it?

You thought right; the Spanish athlete was sponsored to wear the watch while battling it out on the French Open. The RM 027 weighs only 20 grams, relatively light so as not to disturb Nadal in his craft. The timepiece, with a limited edition of 50 pieces, is composed of a carbon-composite case and lithium alloys. The price: a whopping $525,000.
