If you are looking for a reliable travelling companion, consider the new Rado HyperChrome UTC watch. The novelty shows two time zones simultaneously.
The case of the new Rado watch boasts the brand’s innovative monobloc construction to guarantee lightness, scratch-resistance and supreme comfort on the wrist.
The timepiece is presented in four variations, three of which have a plasma high-tech ceramic case.
Due to the use of the plasma high-tech ceramic, the surface of the watch has acquired a striking metallic brilliance, while no metal has been used. Plasma carburising represents an exclusive process patented by the brand. During the process, high-tech ceramic is exposed to gases activated at 20,000˚C and altering its composition. Yet, the ceramic material maintains its essential properties. The surface of the high-tech ceramic acquires its warm grey color that will not fade over time, but keep its scratch-resistant shine for ages.
The 42mm case is 100-meter water-resistant. The face is protected by a curved sapphire crystal with anti-reflective coating on both sides.
The models with the plasma high-tech ceramic case have a black, grey or silver-colored dial. They are coupled with a bracelet built from plasma high-tech ceramic outer links and black high-tech ceramic middle links or a brown leather strap.
The model in matt black high-tech ceramic has a black dial and is teamed with a matt black high-tech ceramic bracelet. All the dials sport a moving anchor symbol.
All the new Rado HyperChrome UTC watch models are animated by an automatic ETA movement. The 21-jewel mechanism provides a 42-hour power reserve. The date window is positioned at 3 o‘clock. The movement is visible via the sapphire crystal case-back.
