Watchmaker Richard Mille teams up with top tennis player Rafael Nadal to create a stunning piece of watch design, the RM027 Tourbillon. While a watch seems all but an extraneous need on the tennis court, the ultra lightweight watch will be worn by Nadal on the court. Despite all the consistent movements on court, the watch’s Tourbillon design will ensure maximum accuracy. The watch’s defining point is the astounding weight, tipping the scales at only 20 g (13 g without the strap). The watch is made of carbon-composite as well as titanium and LITAL ®, lithium alloy containing aluminum, copper, magnesium, zirconium (materials used in many lightweight aircraft applications) The watch will be limited to 50 pieces at a suggested price of $525,000;  just about in my price range.
