Richard Mille RM 35-03 Rafael Nadal: The Butterfly Effect

The Richard Mille Manufacture recently launched the RM 35-03 “Baby Nadal” watch collection. The new instrument features an innovative butterfly rotor. Frank sans C will tell you everything you need to know in a very short (wing) time span.

Let’s go back in time, before Rafael Nadal won his 21st Grand Slam title at the Australian Open last January and became the all-time record champion. In December 2021, his old friend Richard Mille launched the RM 35-03 Rafael Nadal. This is the fourth in the “Baby Nadal” series. Why take this name? Because the performance and technology of these watches come from the RM 027 tourbillon watches worn by Spanish players on the tennis court.

“We all strive for excellence in our respective fields. We speak the same language, Richard and I. We are both passionate about what we do. Keeping the flames of that passion alive for what we do every day is for me Crucially. Even though I don’t wear the RM 035 model for the race, it’s heartening to feel the confidence he and the team have shown me to take part in this bizarre adventure,” shared Rafa Nadal.

The butterfly oscillating weight is an incredible innovation for the new RM 35-03 Automatic Rafael Nadal watch

Beware, this one has no tourbillon. Rather, it’s an extraordinary innovation with significant technology and utility. The new RM 35-03 Automatic Rafael Nadal integrates a unique winding mechanism. In fact, the wearer can directly control it.

The watchmaker’s engineers at the Swiss watchmaker spent three years developing this special rotor, which they named the “Butterfly”. And for good reason! This pendulum consists of two identical parts that can be unfolded 90° to face each other.

Owner control over a winding movement: Richard Mille’s mechanical revolution
This capability is reminiscent of Richard Mille’s famous “variable geometry rotor.” This allows the wearer to adjust the sensitivity of the winding mechanism according to their activity. Except this is a revolution: no need to go to the watchmaker to change the rotor.

In fact, the RM 35-03 displays a pusher at 7 o’clock, allowing the operation of the clever system and the placement of the two movable wings as required. You can glue them together, like an oscillating weight, to wind the movement. Or face to face to balance the rotor and stop the winding mechanism. This is the position you must choose when exercising with this watch. Because it can avoid excessive winding of the movement, so as not to damage the movement.

As a watchmaking marvel, the watch also features an “on/off” indicator. The small button is very useful as it allows the wearer to see the status of the rotor whether it is activated or not. It is located at 6 o’clock in the internal structure of the Calibre RMAL2. Treated in black PVD, this charming grade 5 titanium movement showcases a very vivid skeleton, complete with insect wings.

We’re not going to explain the butterfly system’s haptic feedback in detail. Frank sans C has done it. But we have to mention the presence of the flanges and numerals sloping inwards to create the effect of depth and draw the eye inside the movement.

another button for another indicator
The instrument also has a second button. A small indicator is located at 2 o’clock on the tonneau-shaped case. It controls the crown’s function selector (red hand at 2 o’clock). It allows the wearer to choose between winding (W), neutral (N) and manual setting (H) functions. A car’s gearbox for the movement (the motor of the fake watches for sale), a tribute to the automotive industry that Maison loved so much.

The RM 35-03 Automatic Rafael Nadal, not one but two versions, uses high-tech materials. Richard Mille is releasing a new work in two different versions. Both reflect the manufacturer’s expertise in implementing breakthrough materials.

Both are the same price, so it’s your choice. One is a blue Quartz TPT® with a white Quartz TPT® case. The other is White Quartz TPT® and Carbon TPT® and Carbon TPT® Housing. Each comes with a rubber strap, either white or blue depending on the model. perfect replica watches

Girard-Perregaux presents the Laureato Absolute Chronograph Aston Martin F1 Edition

Girard-Perregaux and Aston Martin revealed the third embodiment of their collaboration when they unveiled the Laureato Absolute Chronograph AM F1 Edition.

This limited-edition watch has been highly anticipated since Girard-Perregaux announced that it will be the official watch supplier of British high-performance car manufacturer Aston Martin and the Aston Martin Aramco Cognitive Formula 1 team. The two companies have collaborated on two watches in the past – the Three-Flybridge Tourbillon Aston Martin Edition and the Laureto Chronograph Aston Martin Edition.

Their latest collaboration collides two worlds, micromechanics and the extreme performance of Formula One.

With so much competition in the F1 world, even a fraction of a second can make or break. This means that weight, engine power and aerodynamics are paramount. Fortunately, the AMF1 team knows a thing or two about all of this and brings its incredible understanding of lightweight materials to the world of haute horology.

Featuring a cutting-edge 44mm case, the Laureato Absolute Chronograph AM F1 Edition is a blend of titanium powder and carbon, taken from two F1 cars used in the 2021-22 season. This is a first in the watch industry. High-tech ingredients are mixed with pigmented resins through a high-tech manufacturing process. This process means that each watch will have its own unique visual identity.

“Working with Aston Martin has been a pleasure from the beginning,” said Girard-Perregaux CEO Patrick Pruniaux. “It wasn’t just a case of putting our name on a Formula 1 car. Instead, we collaborated on multiple projects, resulting in two very different watches. The collaboration resulted in some innovative and interesting ideas , culminating in the creation of exciting new products. This has also led to some wonderful friendships between the people of the two companies. For our previous collaborative models, the focus was on style and elegance. However, with this latest timepiece, We’re looking to work closely with the F1 side of the brand and focus more on the performance concept.”

Mike Krack, Aston Martin Aramco Cognizant Formula 1 Team Principal, added: “As a team, we have the determination to succeed, and that ambition requires us to analyse every element of our performance package. This includes managing the way we use to build the cars materials, measuring their weight and strength, all to find that crucial extra thousandth of a second in lap times. fake Girard-Perregaux is a valued partner in our organization and we work together to share and combine our knowledge , to enhance each other’s brands. The new Laureato Absolute Chronograph AMF1 is the first example of this collaboration and an amazing example of what we can accomplish together.”
