ARMED TECHNICAL EXPERIENCE

The Nadal RM 027 watch proved that an ultra-light complex mechanism was able to withstand the extreme conditions of the world’s most legendary tennis courts with total security. Taking the process further, this ultra-light, ultra-high-performance and ultra-rugged chronograph is Chronofiable® certified.

Main characteristics

The skeletonised movement is inserted into the architecture of a magnesium-aluminium case. Recreating, beneath the black carbon-fibre flanges, the 3D effect of the succession of terraced mechanisms clearly visible through the broad sapphire crystal of the bezel, uncluttered by any figures.

BASEPLATE, BRIDGES AND BALANCE COCK MADE OF TITANIUM The manufacturing of these components in grade 5 titanium, with black PVD coating for the baseplate and Titalyt® for the bridges, allows the whole assembly to be given great rigidity, as well as precise surface flatness which is essential for the perfect functioning of the gear train. The skeletonized baseplate was subjected to separate and extensive validation tests to insure optimal strength requirements.

WATCH CHRONOFIABLE® CERTIFIED

The Chronofiable® test was developed at the beginning of 80’s by the CCF SA (centre de contrôle de la fiabilité de l’horlogerie Suisse taken over in 1985 by the Laboratoire Dubois SA), in order to simulate accelerated aging of watches. This simulates normal wearing conditions with an accelerated intensity factor of about 8 by reproducing, over 21 days (the equivalent of 6 months effective wear). These tests include: - initial monitoring of the movement functions and an additional rate and amplitude test, at two temperature levels (0°C and 50°C); monitoring of the power reserve and the winding velocity. - numerous tests of the stem. - ageing cycles consisting of linear and angular accelerations; 20,000 shocks ranging from 250 to 5500 m/s2 (9.81 m/s2 = 1g) as well as changes in temperature and humidity during these cycles. - tests with magnetic fields. - final monitoring with same elements than during the initial monitoring. The RM 035 Rafael Nadal Chronofiable® certified, confirms the ability of the RMUL1 caliber to withstand many extreme conditions without experiencing any effects on its performance. These tests confirmed that the caliber RMUL1 was able to withstand shocks according to the norm ISO 1413.

CASE RM 035

The RM 035 case is made of an extremely rugged and light alloy called magnesium-aluminium. This alloy is composed of magnesium 90% and aluminium 8.9%. Magnesium has a density is of 1,74 g/cm3, which means it is one of the lightest metals used for construction. After a long and delicate machining phase, this alloy is given an electro-plasma oxidation treatment. This resultant coating is a cristalline oxide ceramic with a high ratio of high resistant composites such as MgAl2O4 spinels. The blackish color is due to light-resistant spinels which are chemically inert, that is to say magnesium oxides and aluminium oxides with particular structure. This improves both hardness and scratch resistance of this alloy, and also its wear and corrosion resistance. This treatment applied to magnesium-aluminium is biocompatible and used in aerospace, automotive industries and in the medical sector. The case of the RM 035 is water-resistant to 50 meters, ensured by two Nitril O-ring seals. The case is assembled with 12 spline screws in grade 5 titanium and abrasion resistant washers in 316L stainless steel.

SPLINE SCREWS IN GRADE 5 TITANIUM FOR THE CASE

Due their design, these screws offer better control of the torque applied during assembly. These screws are therefore unaffected by physical manipulation during assembly or disassembly and age well.
