Rafael Nadal, the #2 ranked tennis player in the world, beat #1 ranked rival Novak Djokovic in 4 sets during the finals of the US Open yesterday. As you likely already know if you read this site, Nadal is an ambassador for Richard Mille watches.

He is seen wearing his ultra-light Richard Mille RM 27-1 Tourbillon (a new version of the RM 27) in the photo above. This high-tech watch is specially made so Nadal can wear it while he plays, in fact, he wears it during all his tennis matches. You too can wear one, although the availability is very limited — and the cost is over half a million dollars.
