RADO HYPERCHROME BRONZE
20 March 2018
In a seamless union of ancient and modern elements, the Rado HyperChrome Automatic Chronograph is now available in a beautifully contrasting bronze and high-tech ceramic construction. Limited to 999 pieces, this exclusive timepiece joins two materials that are perfectly suited for use in watchmaking: Bronze, which marks the passage of time by developing a rich patina, and high-tech ceramic, which boasts lightness and superior scratch resistance. The initial pale gold colour of the HyperChrome’s bronze elements deepens with time, developing a matt vintage-look patina that is unique to each watch and wearer. As the bronze ages, darkening and taking on more character, it forms a handsome contrast to the flawless high-tech ceramic surfaces of the case. The ceramic case retains the benefits of the material by being light, scratch-resistant and hypoallergenic. The result is a striking combination of old and new, and a watch that honours the passage of time both inside and out.
