Epic… Simple as that. In reality, this year, the final of the 2017 French Open is an unquestionable requirement. On one side is the unrivaled Rafael Nadal, who will be battling this year for the “decima”, which means his conceivable 10th triumph at Roland-Garros (something that has never been finished). On the opposite side is Stanislas Wawrinka, victor of the 2015 Edition and one that everyone knows to be a significant competitor. Be that as it may, this Roland-Garros 2017 Final will likewise see an amazing skirmish of watches, with Richard Mille and Audemars Piguet trying for ideal visibility.
Rafael Nadal and his Richard Mille RM-27-03 Tourbillon
As anticipated for this present year, two realities regard the practice. The first concerns the game we’re zeroing in on today, tennis. Nothing unexpected again for this 2017 version of the French Open, Rafael Nadal qualified for the final round. Thusly, he will be battling to arrive at the stars, to get the “decima”, which means his conceivable 10th triumph at Roland-Garros – a title that nobody at any point came to and that would situate him up there, at the Pantheon of game, much the same as Micheal Schumacher and his 7 titles in Formula 1. Nadal is the manager of the French Open and the playing surface, mud, is his #1 one. Indeed, even Stan Wawrinka conceded in ongoing meetings that Rafa was practically inaccessible in Paris…
On his wrist is the second nothing unexpected of this 2017 final round. In fact, true to form, Rafael Nadal will be wearing the most recent making of Richard Mille, the RM-27-03 Tourbillon, a watch made explicitly for him – and what a watch it is. The Richard Mille RM 27-03 Tourbillon Rafael Nadal highlights a Red and Yellow a carbon composite Quartz TPT case (which has just been nicknamed the “Ronald McDonald” watch by some…), with a crown formed like a tennis ball. The case gets its tone from the gums used to tie the carbon filaments inside the material.
The development baseplate is made in carbon fiber and is essential for the caseband, as such a “unibody” body. The large angular titanium connect on the front, which unmistakably separate this 2017 rendition from the others (as the 2015 Richard Mille RM 27-02 Tourbillon Rafael Nadal ) is a stylised bull’s head, Nadal’s own seal. This tourbillon development is delivered by APRP (a production possessed by… Audemars Piguet). This extraordinarily complex but then very light watch can likewise oppose to stuns up to 10,000g. Its value: CHF 710,000, delivered in 50 pieces only.
Stan Wawrinka and his AP ROO Chronograph Dream Team
On the opposite side of the court will be one of the best potential competitors for Rafa, another incredibly influential man, Swiss-conceived player Stanislas Wawrinka. Obviously, Stan’s family at the French Open is less great, with one semi-final in 2016, one final this year yet additionally a triumph. In fact, Stan won the 2015 French Open, beating no not exactly Novak Djokovic. Stan is adequately amazing to challenge Rafa on his most loved surface… But will it be sufficient to outperform the manager of Roland-Garros? We will see end of this evening. The “decima” for Nadal, yet perhaps the “segunda” for Wawrinka…
On Stanislas Wawrinka’s wrist, nothing unexpected by the same token. There will be an Audemars Piguet. Without a doubt, we previously spotted him wearing one of the brand’s manifestations at the 2016 French Open (all things considered, a Royal Oak Offshore Diver Chronograph). Stan is one of the brand’s “friends”, along with another tennis player, Serena Williams. In the event that the brand of the watch that will be lashed on this wrist this evening won’t be an astonishment, the model being referred to anyway is another story.
The watch being referred to isn’t commercialized and is a model explicitly created for the brand’s envoys. This is the Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Offshore Chronograph Dream Team and it has the reference number 26409CB.OO.A030CA.01. It depends on a current model ( see here ), anyway with an alternate shading plan. To be sure, while the white artistic case is known, the blue earthenware pushers and crown (with a gold supplement), the blue dial with 2 silver counters and the blue elastic ties are one of a kind to this model. Much the same as Rafa, Stan wears his watch on his non-playing arm, nonetheless, in contrast to Nadal, he doesn’t need a watch with unfathomable specialized arrangements, demonstrating that an old fashioned chronograph can oppose very a few stuns too.
