A french made watch Maty

French made Watch

Nadal's had a good day today. He beat Spanish opponent Nicolas Almagro in his match today in the French Open, and he has also obtained a gorgeous, shiny new sports watch.

The snazzy piece of bling will set you back £556, 000 if you fancy taking style tips from the tennis legend. You'll have to snap it up quick if you have the cash - only 50 have been made.

His watch is called RM 27-02 Tourbillon, and it was made specifically for the Spanish tennis star by Richard Mille for the 2015 Roland Garros tennis tournament this week in Paris.

The tennis hunk was one of the first professional tennis players to wear a watch on the pitch. He's been an official ambassador for Richard Mille since 2010.

Nadal's watch is so expensive because it has mechanics inside that are basically unheard of in sports watches, including its so-called Tourbillon, or whirlwind, mechanics.

It's also ultra-lightweight and thin, so it won't weigh Nadal down when he is playing tennis.

You may be worried about him wearing such an expensive timepiece whilst hitting balls with great force.

However, there is no need for concern, as it is made with the same materials - titanium and carbon - that are used in racing cars, helicopters and yachts.

His piece of bling is capable of withstanding forces in excess of 5, 000G, according to Richard Mille.

Maybe Lewis Hamilton could get one too - a Formula One racing driver can experience up to 6G of pressure, so the watch wouldn't break for him, either.
