A black glossy, sq. watch is among the enduring pictures that involves thoughts when one mentions Rado. It was once the similar feeling Matthias Breschan, then-CEO of Rado, vividly recollected when he first joined in 2011, as he advised us throughout an interview we had with him in factor #56. More importantly, the logo recall is a testomony to the watchmaker’s efforts in differentiating itself from more and more stiffer pageant. That glossy, sq. watch is the Ceramica, which was once introduced in 1990, however 3 many years on, Rado embarks on a brand new journey because it seeks to construct on a legacy in watchmaking that it pioneered.
The True Square, as the brand new assortment is known as, is located underneath the logo’s True umbrella. This comprises the True, True Thinline and now, the True Square collections. Though every assortment has a singular id, all proportion DNA — watches made solely in high-tech ceramic providing unheard of lightness and luxury for the wearer (somewhere else in the problem, we advance the perception that ceramic could be one of the at ease fabrics to put on – Ed)
For the primary time, Rado has manufactured a sq. watch with an injected monobloc case building the usage of both high-tech ceramic or plasma high-tech ceramic. The former can also be completed with a matte or high-glossy look whilst the latter radiates a steel glow. Both allow rounded curves, as an alternative of angular ones, which intensify the fluidity of the case building because it flows to fulfill the matching bracelet. A titanium caseback is fitted to cut back the burden additional, bringing all of the package deal to an astonishing 120g, together with the bracelet.
The True Square Automatic Open Heart noticed right here provides a distinct way to the in a different way elegant-looking True Square Automatic. The commercial way to skeletonisation at this degree imparts a steampunk sensibility to the Open Heart this is in contrast to every other Rado watch. The openworked dial provides a glimpse on the 80-hour energy reserve automated ETA C07.631 calibre and the Côtes de Genève embellished motion holder. Three diversifications of the True Square Automatic Open Heart are produced — high-polished high-tech ceramic in black or white and a plasma high-tech ceramic in bluish gray.
