Our buddy Hodinkee got some hands-on time with Rafa Nadal’s Richard Mille RM027 watch. The verdict? It’s amazingly light:
You just can not, despite everyone around you telling how light this piece is, fathom just how light this piece is in your hand until you experience it yourself. And when you do, you can’t help but laugh in amazement.
We’ve hung out with a lot of really light, really high-end sports watches recently. The FP Journe Centigraphe in all aluminum was pretty damn light, as was Bubba Watson’s Richard Mille. But, the grand-daddy of ultra light sport watches is the Richard Mille RM027 Tourbillon made specifically for Rafa Nadal. The thing is just shockingly light, and no picture or video could ever relay how incredible this piece is, nor after wearing it, how badly we want one.
Thank you for reading this WristWatchReview post. With so many things competing for everyone’s attention these days, we really appreciate you giving us your time. We work hard every day to put quality content out there for our community.
WristWatchReview is one of the few remaining truly independent watch news outlets. We do not have a giant corporation behind us, and we rely heavily on our community to support us, in an age when advertisers are increasingly uninterested in sponsoring small, independent watch sites — especially a site like ours that is unwilling to pull punches in its reporting and analysis. We don't play the games the other sites play and we've paid for it when it comes to ad revenue.
We would love for you to support us on Patreon and every little bit helps. Thank you.
