Swiss watchmaker Rado expands its True Square collection by launching new skeleton models.
Following the footsteps of the True Square and True Square Open Heart models, these new models come with soft-cornered square cases.
Cast in the brand’s signature black, plasma and white monobloc high-tech ceramic, three new references present a split-level dial with a cut-away top plate offering fascinating views of the precisely skeletonized R808 automatic movement.
In the black and plasma versions, the anthracite coating of the minute wheel bridge and main platine complements the nickel colour of the bottom dial plate and its Côtes de Genève decoration. Similarly, the gold-coloured centre wheel bridge in the white version captures attention and invites the viewer to explore the intricate beauty of the mechanism inside.
Hands and indexes are coated in rose gold colour on the black, silver on the plasma, and yellow gold colour on the white model.
All three versions protect the dial with a flat sapphire crystal, anti-reflective on both faces, and a sapphire crystal set within the sandblasted titanium case back offers additional views of Rado’s new R808 automatic calibre.
The Calibre R808 is fitted with an antimagnetic NivachronTM hairspring for enhanced resistance to shock, temperature fluctuations and magnetic fields, and features an 80-hour power reserve.
All references present the collection’s clear, spare design. Parallel horizontal lines divide the dial into three sections, highlighting geometric harmonies and key parts of the movement.
The upper section offers the views of the balance and its NivachronTM hairspring, while the central section presents the hands, minute wheel bridge and movement jewels, and the bottom section reveals the barrel linked with the power reserve.
The black, plasma and white monobloc high-tech ceramic cases are worn with high-tech ceramic link bracelets in the same shades.
