On October 9th, RICHARD MILLE held a private reception in Shanghai in a low-key manner. Only dozens of VIP guests were invited to join the Spanish tennis star Rafael Na. Rafael Nadal (RAFA) got together. As if a friend was visiting the door, RAFA shared his joy of the year with everyone.
Mr. Dave Tan, CEO of RICHARD MILLE Asia
RAFA’s record this year is extremely impressive. Just after his 31st birthday, he won the unprecedented ten titles of the French Open. The two Grand Slam titles in 2017 also brought his historical achievements to 16 Grand Slams. Coupled with the China Open Championship and Masters Runner-up that came to China this time, the number one ranking in the year is still very solid.
Since Nadal became a close friend of the RICHARD MILLE brand in 2010, every shock and pressure has been accompanied by a precision watch. Every match, a light companion is always with him.
Nadal holds four generations of RM 027 series watches

It is extremely rare that at this reception, everyone witnessed the four limited edition works of the RM 027 tourbillon watch series developed by RAFA: RM 027, RM 27-01, RM 27-02-and witnessing his return to the world The first RM 27-03 ——appeared at the same time with RAFA himself. For RAFA fans and RICHARD MILLE watch fans, this moment is very precious. Even RAFA himself said with a smile that he never held four 027 series watches at the same time. Behind the iterative update is his memory of how many times he has struggled to reach the top in the tennis world. Every innovation and breakthrough of RICHARD MILLE is synchronized with the growth of Nadal. The joint experience on the field makes this tacit understanding more firm.
