Richard Mille launches the RM 27-04 tourbillon Rafael Nadal
Lightweight best luxury replica watches have a lot of numbers.
The RM 27-04 tourbillon Rafael Nadal is the concept for the tenth anniversary of the collaboration between Richard Mille and Spanish tennis champion Rafael Nadal. It is a super light, super exotic and super Expensive mechanical watches.
The RM 27-04 is equipped with a manual winding movement, suspended on a dense network of steel cables on the case. It is the largest shock resistance of all Richard Mille watches, about 12,000 grams. Its shell is made of carbon fiber composite material, coupled with the hollow movement, means that its weight may be as high as a few sheets of paper.
Although the recent RM 72-01 chronograph is often in a different direction from Richard Mille-it is equipped with a brand new internal movement and has an unusual double balance pinion structure-RM 27- 04 but with the brand spirit.
RM 27-04 is a more extreme version of Richard Mille (Richard Mille) previously made, it has more cables, more frames and more advanced composite materials. This is also $1 million, whether it is a donation or an acceptance. From the perspective of brand functions, RM 27-04 is a successful product both in concept and execution.
But in a broader sense, Richard Mille (Richard Mille) has been engaged in the research of such watches for many years, so RM 27-04 is not exciting or interesting.
String like a racket
The RM 27-04 weighs only 30 grams (including the belt), which is equivalent to about six sheets of A4 paper-following the principle of the cable suspension movement used for the first time in the RM 27-01, and then goes further.
The pivot jewel of the balance wheel and the mainspring is located in a triangular shock absorber made of red synthetic material
Just like a tennis racket, the RM 27-04 movement is fixed by an interwoven wire mesh with a diameter of only 0.27 mm. The wire is first secured with a rose gold turnbuckle at five o’clock, then passes through the movement, in and out of the bezel 38 times, and finally secured with another gold turnbuckle at 10 o’clock-finished by the watchmaker.
Then, the movement is fixed to the wire mesh by five titanium hooks, which are screwed on the bottom side of the base plate.
According to Richard Mille (Richard Mille), the wire suspension structure gives the movement an excellent impact resistance of over 12,000 g. In contrast, the 155mm howitzer’s navigation circuit inside the shell can withstand 15,500 grams.
In the traditional fake Richard Mille style, the case is a carbon composite material-carbon fibers suspended in a polymer. This time it is a new type of composite material called TitaCarb, which is characterized by a high carbon fiber content, accounting for 38.5% of its volume. The case is integrated. After the movement is installed, the two crystals are directly attached to the case.
