The case and bracelet may look like metal, but there is no metal involved at all. It´s plasma high-tech ceramic, the material is innovative and this is what Rado stands for.
Rado took a piece of white ceramic and transformed it “magically” into a gleaming watchcase that looks like metal. No metal was used; Rado instead used a modern and advanced materials technology. The monobloc case, injected at high-pressure, is a groundbreaking construction. As a single piece of ceramic, it contains no steel cage as many ceramic timepieces do. This makes it lightweight as well as super scratch-resistant and comfortable to wear. The final monobloc piece then goes into a special oven, where a plasma column activates gases at 20.000°C. These gases permeate the ceramic, permanently altering the composition of its surface and bringing out a brilliant metallic sheen that will never fade.
The new Rado HyperChrome Automatic Chronograph Plasma Ceramic is another product to sum up Rado´s DNA.
This form of modern alchemy, where gases activated at high temperature change the molecular composition of the ceramic, now features on the newest Rado families. Scintillatingly scientific and super stylish, plasma high-tech ceramic has a brilliant metallic shine in a warm grey tone, without using any metal.
In my eyes that’s a perfect combination of technology, style and luxury…
The Rado HyperChrome Automatic Chronograph Plasma Ceramic is powered by an ETA 2894-2 automatic chronograph calibre. The case size´s are: 41,8 x 51 x 13 mm.
