Rado Innovates Ceramic to Create This Ultra Light Watch

LIGHT AND SEXY. Among the gazillion brands exhibiting during the last Baselworld, Rado quietly stood out with its fashion-conscious designs




The streamlined approach toward lightness and minimalism strongly materialized in this year’s unisex collection.

The brand’s most innovative material yet is the silicon nitride ceramic—harder than regular ceramic but at only half the weight—and it seems to strike all the right chords in the HyperChrome Ultra Light piece.

With only 500 pieces produced, the 43mm automatic watch model bears multiple shades of gray, the very dial of which exudes cool grooves that go downward on the right side.

No hour numerals or indexes, only a date display at 3 o’clock and an eye-catching vertical lining of the word “automatic” are present.

A finishing touch to this 56gr-light novelty is a trendy deep gray NATO strap.
