Chronographs, dress watches and diving watches join an eclectic mix of sensational timepieces making up the Rado Hyperchrome watch collection. This famous line of elegant watches showcases a variety of dial colours, materials, shapes and functions. The designs stand out for their ultra-modern yet dashingly good looks and feature monobloc cases crafted from one piece of high tech ceramic. Many of the watches from this collection are diamond studded for an ultra luxurious feel. Others feature a retro design, breaking away ever-so slightly from the contemporary nature of Rado’s signature look.
No other collection from Rado has ever demonstrated such breadth of variety in aesthetics and functions. The line of watches is thus the most versatile in Rado’s program to date. Automatic movements mainly feature in this unique collection, whilst materials vary from plasma high tech ceramic, to the trusty stainless steel and lightweight titanium. Many colour variations derive from the chronograph collection. These timepieces are packed full of innovative and practical features to assist with daily tasks. Whether recording personal bests down at the gym or making an important business meeting with a Rado Hyperchrome chronograph watch strapped securely to the wrist - these timepiece are certain to look stylish and sleek on the wrist no matter what the occasion. The Rado Hyperchrome Ultralight watch is appealing with its character and its discreet feather light feel on the wrist, whilst watches like the classic diving watch Captain Cook and the retro 1616 have a distinct charm about them.
The automatic version of the Rado Hyperchrome Chronograph watch can be identified from the quartz version with a 30 minute counter, 12 hour counter and small seconds dial at 9, 6 and 3 o’clock respectively. The date aperture can be found at 4:30 on these watches. The simpler three handed dials however, parade their “no-frills” look with ease and confidence, featuring date windows dressed against bright white backgrounds for enhanced legibility and beautiful grey and blue face colours to choose from.
The Rado Hyperchrome Black gent’s stainless steel watch for example, is a sleek tool that is sure to take the wearer from day to night with complete ease. The practical companion doubles up as a true statement piece with the bold Rado lettering emanating from the top of the dial. A black dial features chunky baton indexes surrounded by a black ceramic bezel. A central seconds hand is highlighted with a vibrant splash of colour with its distinct red tip. Luminous coated central hands help to assist the wearer with reading the time during the night, whilst a triangular shaped marker highlights the 12 o’clock location. Like so many Rado watches, this version of the Hyperchrome is designed to appeal to the modern gent thanks to its robust stainless steel link bracelet, which promotes a contemporary yet bold look on the wrist.
