A vibrant tribute from Richard Mille
La Cote des Montres - June 7th, 2022

  • A Record 14th win at Roland-Garros this weekend
  • Unprecedented 22 Grand Slam titles
  • The RM 27-04 Tourbillon on his wrist
Speechless! There are times when words alone fail, when records go beyond the simple mathematics of game, set and match and even championships. However, year in, year out Rafa just keeps delivering and with such grace.

What words could possibly be left to describe the unique combination of awe-inspiring technique and the pure power which he propels point after point over the net. Whether it be slogging it out at nearly 2am against Novak Djokovic or against the best of the young pretenders like Casper Ruud in the final.

Since their first meeting in 2008 and throughout Rafa’s extraordinary journey, Richard Mille has always stood by his side. He once again grasped Sunday’s Roland Garros trophy, wearing the RM 27-04 Tourbillon developed specifically for his wrist. Weighing, strap included just 30 grams it provides ultimate proof of how the brand has kept its promise over the years combining ace-winning technology, ultimate lightness and total ergonomics.

“All in all, a unique friendship has evolved between us pushing the boundaries of a relationship that is way more than just a sponsorship agreement. Determination, resilience and total humility are what characterizes Rafa and he is a true leader in all these values propelling him as one of the greatest sportsmen of all time.”

Following the final, even “Congratulations” seems a bit light for the king of Parisian clay. This weekend Nadal claimed an incredible 14th title in Paris culminating in a record 22 Grand Slams since his first win in 2005.

Gracias, Rafa
for all your devotion and loyalty!
