Rado HyperChrome Ceramic Touch Dual Timer

Loaded with most innovative features, the Rado HyperChrome Ceramic Touch Dual Timer showcases the Swiss watch brand’s pioneering spirit, as well as its material mastery and technological innovation. This quartz watch, equipped with the Ceramic touch technology is available in five new models.

With a main dial displaying the time where you are now and the small dial at 6 o’clock showing the second time zone, this is a watch made for globetrotters.

The main time display is set by activating the watch using sensors at the top of the case, the small dial using the ones at the bottom. By sliding your finger along the left hand side of the case you can make hours fly by and on the right hand side the minutes.

The minutes on the two time zones are synchronised to guarantee accuracy and both minute hands will move during time setting on the main dial.

As seasoned travellers know well, 15 minutes is the smallest difference between world time zones and the quartz movement in this new Rado watch makes changing this interval super simple as well as ultra quick.

Technology has made possible what cannot be achieved with a mechanical watch: a 15 minute leap forward or back across time zones.

Slim, streamlined and featuring the now famous Rado monobloc case construction, the HyperChrome Ceramic Touch Dual Timer is also Lightweight, hypoallergenic and scratch-resistant thanks to the use of ceramic.

The touch technology of this timepiece enables you to touch the ceramic case at 9 and 3 o’clock simultaneously and watch time fly as the Rado magic swaps the times on the dials. It’s a complication that’s simple to use and doesn’t need a crown.

The Rado HyperChrome Ceramic Touch Dual Timer is presented in matt black with rose gold coloured details and a stylish leather strap, shiny white for a dashing dose of flamboyant style, polished black on a ceramic bracelet, ground-breaking shiny cool grey with rose gold coloured details or matt cool grey with rhodium details.

Operating Instructions
Rado HyperChrome Ceramic Touch Dual Timer
This watch has no crown. It is activated and the time is set by touch only. The high-tech ceramic case has 6 sensors and the two sides of the case are the active touch zones. This watch has a 2nd Time Zone function, which is synchronised with the main one. The first time zone is displayed on the main dial. The second time zone is displayed on the small dial at 6 o’clock. Activation is always a two-step process to avoid any unwanted changes in time setting.

To set the main time zone (main dial)

  • 1. Touch the case at 10 o’clock until the minute hand on the main dial moves slightly. Immediately slide your finger along the right hand side of the case from top to bottom. The minute hand moves slightly again and the watch emits a small beep. Now the watch is activated and the time zone on the main dial can be set.
  • 2. To set the hours slide your finger along the left hand side of the case (clockwise = + 1 hour, anti-clockwise = – 1 hour). To set the minutes slide your finger along the right hand side of the case (clockwise = + 1 minute, anti-clockwise = – 1 minute) In order to keep both time zones in synch, the minute hand on both dials will move during the setting process on the main dial.
  • 3. To confirm the time setting and deactivate the watch touch the case at 10 o’clock or at 8 o’clock for 2 seconds. The watch emits two small beeps. Setting mode is now deactivated and the time cannot be changed accidentally.

To set the second time zone (small dial)

  • 1. Touch the case at 8 o’clock, the minute hand on the small dial moves slightly. Immediately slide your finger along the right hand side of the case from top to bottom. The minute hand moves slightly again and the watch emits a small beep. Now the watch is activated and the time zone on the small dial can be set.
  • 2. To set the hours slide your finger along the left hand side of the case (clockwise = + 1 hour, anti-clockwise = – 1 hour) To set the quarter hours (minimum possible time zone difference) slide your finger along the right hand side of the case (clockwise = + ¼ hour, anti-clockwise = – ¼ hour).
  • 3. To confirm the time setting and deactivate the watch touch the case at 8 o’clock or at 10 o’clock for 2 seconds. The watch will emit two small beeps. Setting mode is now deactivated and the time cannot be changed accidentally.

Time zone swap

  • 1. Touch the case either at 8 o’clock (or 10 o’clock), the minute hand on the small (or main) dial moves slightly. Immediately slide your finger along the right hand side of the case from top to bottom. The same minute hand moves slightly again and the watch emits a small beep. Now the watch is activated.
  • 2. Now you can swap the time zone from the small dial to the main dial and vice versa. To do this, touch the case simultaneously at 9 o’clock and 3 o’clock for 2 seconds. The hands on both dials will move quickly and the time set on each dial will move to the other one.
  • 3. To confirm the setting and deactivate the watch touch the case either at 8 o’clock (or 10 o’clock) for 2 seconds. The watch will emit two small beeps. Setting mode is now deactivated and the time cannot be changed accidentally.
