Richard Mille and Rafael Nadal continue its 10-year-long relationship with a new RM 27-04 watch. Inspired by the strings of a tennis racquet, the RM 27-04’s movement is supported by a single 0.27mm steel cable anchored in place by tensioners. Weighing a total weight of just 30 grams, the watch can resist accelerations of more than 12,000 G’s and holds a tourbillon.

The watch sees details like grade 5 titanium construction, 5N gold PVD coating, a 38.4mm x 47.25mm TitaCarb case, and a blue woven strap. On top of raising the bar in engineering, this watch also sits at the top in terms of pricing with only 50 pieces made with a $1,050,000 USD price tag each.

In other watch news, is the Apple Watch Series 6 worth the upgrade?
