BASELNEWS 2009RADO True Chronograph Platinum Matt
Round, the True collection is an invitation into the Rado universe. Accessible. Sensual. The chronograph is the perfect example of exact precision, a limited edition of 800 pieces. Pure and functional. Entirely ceramic, the Rado True Chronograph Platinum Matt Basel Special 2009 is platinum color, purposely treated to evoke an exceptional dull luster. The material absorbs light, enriching the intensity of its grey-brown hues. A feeling of warmth and freshness, the very expression of its design.
Beneath the domed sapphire crystal lies the galvanic dial which underpins its monochromatic nature along with meticulous graphic nuances enhancing its attractiveness. Perfect legibility is achieved through 5N gold highlighting. On its slightly iridescent surface appear three counters with the date at four o’clock, finely outlined circles, each with a central hand, reinforce the shape of the dial and round push-pieces add to the chronograph’s coherence. Two rows of indexes measure the seconds and minutes. The model is also available in a three-hand version with two size options limited to 1,000 and 500 units.
Resolutely contemporary, a watch generous in its form, sober in its expression.
