RADO HyperChrome UTC

Designed for world travelers, the new Rado HyperChrome UTC can show two different time zones at the same time. UTC stands for Coordinated Universal Time and is a more accurate take on the traditional ‘GMT’. At Rado, two different time zones also ensure double the style, making this the ultimate travelling companion for fashionable jet setters. A second time zone on a Rado watch is a rare feature, appearing only on multifunction models and one watch from the 1960s. So, the UTC movement marks a rare foray into complications for the Swiss master of materials.

The Rado HyperChrome UTC comes in a high-tech, lightweight and scratch-resistant ceramic case with the ground-breaking Rado monobloc construction. This ensures lightness, scratch-resistance and comfort, all of which make for a pleasurable travel experience. With three of the four new models sporting plasma high-tech ceramic cases, but without the use of any metal, materials really are still at the forefront of the collection. With Super-LumiNova® for the indexes and the tips of the hands, the HyperChrome UTC is just as easy to read at night as during the day. The second time zone hand features a striking red or blue tip (dependent on the model) to ensure easy reading even with just a quick glance at the dial.
