Rafael Nadal: The Only Watch he will Promote

Rafael Nadal: The Only Watch he will Promote
Rafael Nadal needs no introduction. Promoters keep on making a round of the player to ask him to promote their products. Last year, a little known watchmaker asked Nadal if he could promote his watch, the answer came in the negative. However, things changed and now Rafael Nadal and Richard Mille, the watchmaker have come up with a light watch can be worn by Rafael with ease during his matches. The deal in turn has matured to be one of the best contracts and started a new leaf in the athlete and sponsor relations. The first of the watches promoted by Nadal sold for over $525,000 and the second version of the same is expected to hit the market soon. The price has been kept at $690,000. Though the exact details of the deal are still not known but Nadal prefers to wear off the watch during all of his matches and this has added to the eagerness of those who wish to own the watch. Yearlong research was done by team members of Rafael Nadal and Mille to make the watch light and strong enough, so that the player could wear off the same effortlessly during his matches. The watch has been designed in such a manner so that the effect of gravity is minimal and Rafael is able to concentrate on his game without realizing that he is wearing the watch. The watch has been created using some tiny cables and can withstand accelerations of around 5,000 Gs forces. In normal situations any force more than 10G is dangerous for humans and the watch has been designed to bear  the G force of over 5000 and this fact makes it unusual and special at the same time. Adding a lighter note to the technology talk, Rafael Nadal pointed out that he indeed uses the watch to check out time in between the matches.
