Rado releases True Taipei Limited Edition

22 June 2016

Rado has unveiled an exclusive timepiece in honour of its partnership with World Design Capital® Taipei 2016. The Rado True Taipei Limited Edition, created jointly with renowned Taiwanese designer Leslie Chan, is a pure white high-tech ceramic timepiece inspired by lightness, minimalism, and the dynamic city that is its namesake.

Rado invited Chan, one of ten Taiwanese designers selected to act as a World Design Capital® 2016 Design Ambassador, to collaborate on a special edition of the Rado True. Working within the themes of lightness and minimalism – the hallmarks of Rado's latest collection – he developed a new dial for the Rado True that takes its inspiration from the art of origami.

A design-driven timepiece to celebrate World Design Capital® Taipei 2016

Chan’s texturized, origami-inspired dial is housed in a polished white high-tech ceramic case, a material which is valued among high-end watchmakers for its exceptional hardness and lightness. The timepiece features an engraved caseback with Leslie Chan's signature and is limited to just 101 pieces – a nod to the Taipei 101, an iconic skyscraper and one of the world's tallest buildings.

Rado has long been known for its engagement with the world of design: as a supporter of design initiatives, a promoter of young talent through its Rado Star Prize competitions, and as a winner of over 30 international design awards. With its unique take on east-meets-west aesthetics, the Rado True Taipei Limited Edition further underscores the brand's committment to the field of design.
