Rado HyperChrome Ultra Light

Presented at Baselworld 2018, the new HyperChrome Ultra Light watch from Rado features groundbreaking materials, innovative new elements and show stopping design.

Made with ultra-light high-tech ceramic, the HyperChrome Ultra Light watch weighs only 56gm however the watch makes a strong visual impact with its style. While ultra-light high-tech ceramic (Si3N4) is half the weight of standard Rado hightech ceramic, it is even harder and more scratch-resistant. Equipped with an automatic movement, the HyperChrome Ultra Light watch is presently available in two versions.

The super modern materials and high-tech case construction contrast strongly but impressively with the dial design. Taking their inspiration from 20th Century pocket watches, the understated simplicity and unparalleled legibility of the brown sunray high-tech ceramic dials give these timepieces a classic appearance.

The brown version is presented on a sporty, vintage look NATO strap while the bronze edition has a brown aged leather strap.
