Like its predecessors, the RM 35-02 Rafael Nadal coalesces the fruits of a constant quest for innovation in a unique design. The baseplate and bridges are in wet-sandblasted grade 5 titanium, which has been PVD/Titalyt® treated and stretched to ensure supreme rigidity and impeccably smooth surfaces. The skeletonised baseplate and bridges were subjected to separate and extensive validation tests to ensure they met rigorous strength requirements. Consequently, the RM 35-02 can withstand accelerations of up to 5,000 g’s.
The RM 35-02 emerged in response to a request from many Richard Mille customers for a self-winding mechanism at the heart of a Nadal calibre. The decision to use the brand’s patented variable-geometry rotor—a hallmark of Richard Mille’s automatic movements—was self-evident.
• Arm in grade 5 titanium
• High palladium content 18K white gold weight segments
• Weight segment with 6 possible positions adjusted by screws in grade 5 titanium
• Ceramic ball bearings
• Unidirectional, anti-clockwise winding direction
This exclusive Richard Mille design makes it possible to effectively adapt rewinding of the mainspring to the user’s activity level, in sporting or non-sporting environments. By adjusting the six-position rib, the rotor’s inertia is modified to either speed up the winding process in the case of leisurely arm movements, or to slow it down during sporting activities.
