The two new introductions from Rado for Baselworld 2018 are stunning! PEAKLIFE gives you the first look.
Rado is known for its avant-garde approach to design and materials. At Baselworld 2018 the brand will be introducing the new RadoHyperChrome Chronograph and the nature-inspired model that will be added to its super slim True Thinline collection. Peaklife gives you all the details you need about these two distinct and mesmerizing models that are getting us all excited about Baselworld 2018.
Ancient meets avant-garde
The new RadoHyperChrome Chronograph in bronze and high-tech ceramic is a classic collectible for all watch lovers. In a seamless union of ancient and modern elements, the RadoHyperChrome Chronograph Automatic is now available in a beautifully contrasting bronze and high-tech ceramic construction. Limited to 999 pieces, this exclusive timepiece joins two materials that are perfectly suited for use in watchmaking: Bronze, which marks the passage of time by developing a rich patina, and high-tech ceramic, which boasts lightness and superior scratch resistance.
The sporty-chic HyperChrome Chronograph is Rado’s signature all day, every occasion timepiece for gents. In this new model, the 45 mm automatic chronograph retains its scratch resistant high-tech ceramic case – here in matt midnight black – but swaps out the ceramic bracelet for a supple brown vintage look leather strap. Adding to this harmonious contrast are side inserts and chronograph pushers crafted in bronze – humanity’s oldest alloy. Rose gold coloured hands and indexes echo the subtle metallic sheen of the bronze, while a bezel engraved with a tachometric scale provides additional functionality.
Let your personal style bloom with the True Thinline
Rado is known for its avant-garde approach to design and materials, but the Swiss watchmaker is now taking its cues from nature too. The pioneering brand has added a glamorous garden-inspired piece to its super slim True Thinline collection.
Following last year’s successful introduction of four high-tech ceramic colours to the True Thinline collection, Rado presents this gorgeous green timepiece, now featuring intricate and organic detailing. The tone-on-tone dial is crafted from green mother-of-pearl with a delicate leaf structure printed onto its underside. Gold-coloured indexes are metalized on the sapphire crystal, appearing to float effortlessly above the dial. Fully constructed from glossy green ceramic, this flora-themed wristwatch dazzles without being flashy, conveying a mood of down-to-earth luxury.
