The HyperChrome watch collection by Rado sees the company’s innovation taken to new heights. The range is packed with variation. From the bold shapes, colours and materials used in the cases of the watches, to the manufacturing processes involved in each timepiece – it’s quite clear that Rado want to show off their comprehensive expertise with the models from this unique line. With no other collection featuring such a wide variety of functions and state of the art materials, it makes us even more excited each time the Swiss experts reveal that they’re releasing a new variation to the line. Most watches from the Rado HyperChrome collection are renowned for their monobloc case crafted from a single piece of ceramic. For those that have followed the company’s technological advances over the years, you’ll know that amongst this material’s scratch-resistant and lightweight qualities, a monobloc structure means an even more secure, solid and damage-proof frame. But this steel Rado watch brings a modern feel to what has become a very traditional design within the luxury wristwatch industry. Trusty stainless steel is a popular favourite. Despite the much-loved lightweight feel of ceramic upon the wrist, this steel HyperChrome pedigree is sure to make its presence known. In other words – it’s guaranteed to look and feel substantial on the wrist no matter what.
The Rado HyperChrome collection offers everyone a little bit of everything. There are models for divers, as well as watches infused with a strong sense of sporty elegance. There are three handed dress watches and chronographs for those who like a little added technical appeal. This Rado HyperChrome watch is a bone afide gent’s tool for keeping track of accurate time as well as for looking sleek and smart at all times. Its hefty 45mm steel case has a beautiful patina to its surface. Its identity is pronounced through a classic black dial with slim black ceramic bezel displaying the seconds around the outskirts of the face. The index dial with polished and luminous applied central hands, will ensure you see the time in the dark or if caught off-guard in any low-light conditions. Rado specialise in their sapphire crystal glass manufacture, equipping all their timepieces with a lens that is integrated with scratch-resistant properties and treated with layers of anti-reflective technology. As we’ve seen in many models from the HyperChrome collection, watches fitted with an automatic movement often showcase the working components of the engine through an exhibition caseback crafted from this material, but in the case of this quartz HyperChrome watch, a solid screwed stainless steel caseback promises superior protection from water, heat and shock impact.
A fully functioning date window at the third hour ensures you’ll never lose track of those important dates coming up. The feature is dressed against a bright white background to match the hour markers and hands. To finish with, a robust stainless steel bracelet is designed especially to wrap around the wrist with boldness was and definition, and that it certainly does! There’s no hiding this attention-demanding 45mm tool on the wrist. It makes a statement that goes far beyond flaunting its quality-associated name. This Rado HyperChrome 45mm date watch communicates strength, performance and technique – values which lie at the heart of every Rado watch.
