Rado presents True Thinline Deep Web watch, created in partnership with the Belgian-based Austrian fashion designer Flora Miranda as part of the 2019 Rado Designer Series.
The Swiss watchmaker follows the success of its 2017 designer collaborations with a raft of new limited editions and the True Thinline Deep Web is the latest creation in this project.
Using her True Thinline as a blank canvas for self-expression, Flora, the winner of Rado Star Prize Austria 2017, created the dreamlike Deep Web. Under the sapphire crystal, two transparent discs sit on top of each other. Each disc has a metallic coloured web pattern. As the discs overlap, an illusion of hands is created. It is a truly futuristic and ethereal approach to telling the time.
Unlike the other models in the series, the Deep Web is powered by an automatic movement, which was required to ensure there is enough momentum to power the overlapping discs that sit under the box-shaped sapphire crystal. As a result, the watch is very slightly bigger than the other watches in the Designer Series.
The True Thinline Deep Web in polished black high-tech ceramic with innovative turning disc hands is available in a limited edition of 1,001 pieces, each with a special case back engraving.
About Flora Miranda
A graduate of the Royal Academy of Fine Arts in Antwerp, Austrian-born Belgian-based fashion designer Flora Miranda won the Rado Star Prize Austria in 2017. Since then, she has continued to develop her unique aesthetic, which focuses on the human being, the body, senses and perception performing in an actual or virtual reality. She is breaking down boundaries in fashion and aims to create deep dreams, desires and motives. She embraces experimentation and explores techniques that are detached from design tradition or history. She is the first Rado Star Prize winner to design a watch for Rado.
