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
