Rado True Chronograph

        Dating back to the 1917’s, Rado is a Swiss watch-making brand, headquartered in Lengnau, that was initially destined to produce only watch movements, and it wasn’t until 1957 that it released the first watch collection. Nevertheless the brand’s name will remain carved in the history of fine Horology worldwide as the producer of the first scratch-proof timepiece in the world: the Rado Diastar.

        Through the years Rado created many wristwatches manufactured from highly innovative materials and ever since the brand never ceased to be a pioneer when it comes to high-tech materials being the first brand that used sapphire crystal and also the creator of the hardest watch on earth- the diamond coated V10K.

        Asides from the highly innovative approach to materials and mechanical components, Rado outstands through a highly personal and contemporary approach to watch’s design, creating timepieces defined by a powerful individuality such as the new True Chronograph Platinum Matt Watch, a pretty exclusive addition to the Rado watch collection that has been one of the most appreciated novelties presented at Baselworld 2009.

        The eye-catching timepiece features a high-tech ceramic case that masterfully combines the matt aspect with the delightful color of platinum, obtained due to a very sophisticated coating technique that reveals deep gray-brown hues and furthermore incorporates crown and push-pieces manufactured from the same material moreover the watch’s case-back is secured by 8 screw-down titanium screws.

        Rado True Chronograph Platinum Matt watch is fitted with a grey dial that acquires a special high-end finish touch due to the white galvanic coating. The dial features three chronograph counters- for hours located at 10 o’clock, 1/10 seconds located at 2 o’clock and moreover small seconds positioned respectively at 6 o’clock. A circular date aperture is positioned at 4 o’clock position. The charismatic timepiece also features two rows of hour indices that have their independent direct-drive hand which indicates the minutes and the seconds.

        At the heart of this modern wristwatch beats a high-precision quartz movement- the ETA 251.262, moreover the timepiece is protected by a reliable convex sapphire crystal and it is secured to the wrist by a matt platinum-colored ceramic strap completed by a titanium triple folding clasp, coming for an approximate price tag of $1,200.00.
