Richard Mille today launched the RM 35-03 self-winding Rafael Nadal watch, which is the fourth watch in the RM 035 series designed specifically for this famous Spanish tennis player.
Even if Rafa is used to wearing the RM 027 series tourbillon watch (such as RM 27-04) on the tennis court, the RM 035 series of timepieces are technically condensed.
In fact, the new model introduces a patented innovation, which is the result of our three-year development, namely the butterfly rotor that we will explain later in the article.
The new RM 35-03 self-winding Rafael Nadal measures 43.15 mm x 49.95 mm and has a thickness of 13.15 mm. There are two styles: white quartz TPT and carbon fiber TPT strap with carbon fiber TPT or blue quartz TPT strap with white quartz TPT .
Carbon fiber TPT and quartz TPT are composed of multiple layers of parallel filaments, which are obtained by separating carbon fibers or silica threads. Their surfaces show always different stripes, making the appearance of each model truly unique.
Although the RM 35-02 model already has a variable geometry rotor-the iconic component of the Richard Mille automatic movement-the new butterfly rotor of the RM 35-03 allows the wearer to directly interact with the geometry of the rotor. The winding speed is controlled at the lifestyle and activity level, which is equally interesting and practical for complications.
The butterfly-shaped oscillating weight of the skeletonized self-winding RMAL2 movement consists of two grade 5 titanium and metal counterweights. In the initial position, the counterweight causes a radial displacement of the center of gravity, which generates the necessary torque to wind the barrel.
By applying a simple pressure on the button at 7 o’clock, the gear train dedicated to the rotor unfolds the two counterweights to 180°. Then the center of gravity returns to the center to balance the rotor, stop the winding process, and over-wind the chain during sports activities.
By applying pressure to the pusher again, the rotor will work and wind the movement. replica Richard Mille RM 35-03
Beating at a frequency of 28,800 vibrations (4 Hz) per hour, the free-spring balance wheel with variable inertia ensures greater reliability in the event of shocks and during assembly and disassembly of the movement, thereby providing more change over time Good timing result. Due to the 4 small adjustable weights directly on the balance, no regulator indicator is required, allowing more accurate and repeatable adjustments.
The dual barrel system guarantees a 55-hour power reserve, helping to maintain torque stability for a longer period of time. This is achieved by distributing stored energy to the two barrels, equalizing torque, and reducing friction on bearings and pivots, thereby improving long-term performance.
The button at 2 o’clock allows you to select the winding (W), neutral (N) and time setting (H) functions with one touch. The hand at 2 o’clock shows the selected function. The crown is made of grade 5 titanium and carbon TPT with a rubber O-ring seal. fashion watches
