Rado HyperChrome Skeleton Automatic Chronograph Limited Edition

By fusing innovative materials, design know-how and highly specialized art crafts in watch making, Rado presents a skeletonised version of its popular HyperChrome Skeleton Automatic Chronograph.

Crafted from matt black high-tech ceramic, the HyperChrome Skeleton sports a stark yet subtle look. Created by firing ceramic components with black pigment at 1450°C in a high-tech oven, super hard high-tech ceramic develops its matt black finish through an extensive sand blasting and finishing process.

Inside the matt black high-tech ceramic case offset by a polished black bezel beats the ETA 2894-2 automatic chronograph movement which is skeletonised or “open worked” with plate and bridges cut away, exposing the inner design elements of the movement within.
