Rado HyperChrome 1616
The new HyperChrome 1616 is a reinterpretation of the Rado “Cape Horn” from the 1960s and 1970s. It was in 1616 when Cape Horn was discovered by sailors from the Netherlands and therefore the new collection is named “1616”.
This is how a typical historic Rado “Cape Horn” looked like …
And this is how the year 2016 Rado HyperChrome 1616 reinterpretation looks like:
The titanium grade 5 edition … 46,0 x 45,5 diameter x 13,7 height
The black high-tech, polished and matt ceramic edition … 46,0 x 45,5 diameter x 13,7 height
The Rado HyperChrome 1616 is powered by the ETA C07.621 calibre with a power reserve of 80 hours. The cases are waterproof up to 100 meters.
Not bad at all!!!
