This week, the two combined as Rafael Nadal took to the court at Roland Garros for the French Open in a brand spanking new best Richard Mille replica watch 2020. A summer absent of all our regular warm-weather activities has given way to a calendar of nonstop sports events—and, of course, releases from our favourite brands and watchmakers.
The Richard Mille watch with skeleton dial commemorates the duo’s 10-year partnership, and is the fifth between them. Subtlety has never been within Richard Mille’s wheelhouse; accordingly, many of the Nadal watches play into the brand’s bold and expressive philosophy. Before the new RM 27-04, the RM 27-03 was tiger striped with the red and yellow of the Spanish flag as an homage to Nadal’s home country.

To put that into context, the scariest ride at your local amusement park can put 6 Gs on you, while fighter pilots may endure up to 8 or 9. So just imagine a force 1,333 times more powerful than a fighter jet going full speed and there you have it. But mind-melting technology doesn’t mean Richard Mille’s phoned in the design, either: that pool-blue strap is sure to stand out on the tennis court.
