Rado True Thinline Nature Collection

The Rado True Thinline Nature Collection is a beautiful fusion of nature and innovation taking the essence of Rado, and blending elements of the natural world into its design. The fruits of a creative partnership with Grandi Giardini Italiani – an organisation that promotes the rich heritage of grand Italian gardens – these additions to the True Thinline Collection celebrate the intersection between design and nature.

The Rado designers took the very best elements of the natural world and worked to incorporate this aesthetic into these new True Thinline models.  Although the palette is simple and comes from nature, recreating these colours consistently in high-tech ceramic is incredibly difficult.

To complement the lustrous cases and bracelets, each piece in the collection involves a unique dial treatment that echoes the natural world. Water gains a painted Mother of-Pearl dial that evokes the ebb and flow of the open sea, Earth boasts a metallised coating, which reflects and refracts light beautifully, and Leaf sports green Mother-of Pearl with a leaf structure applied to its underside which shimmers brilliantly in the light.
