The Watch Quote™ - March 15th, 2013



Richard Mille wishes to congratulate Rafael Nadal for his magnificent victory at Acapulco on Sunday 3rd March. The Majorcan defeated his countryman David Ferrer 6-0, 6-2 in 1 hour and 6 minutes on clay.

Rafael Nadal who was away from courts for seven months due to a long-term knee injury, returned in good shape for this tournament and did not concede a single set and gave up his serve only once.



Thanks to this victorious final, Rafael adds a 52nd title of which 38 were on clay. This victory marks a big return in the sport, barely a fortnight after his victory in Sao Paulo, Brazil.

Richard Mille partner since 2010, Rafa competed with his RM 27-01 on his wrist at the Acapulco tournament, the world’s lightest tourbillon (19 grams strap included). The RM 27-01 was previewed for the very first time in Geneva during the Salon International de la Haute Horlogerie.
