Dubai, UAE, October 22, 2017:  Swiss watchmaker Rado is giving its latest design collaboration a time to shine. The Rado True Face, co-created with innovative Polish architect Oskar Zieta, is a limited edition timepiece that combines Zieta's signature reflective surfaces with the classic design and high-tech construction of the Rado True family.

The Rado True Face is housed in matt grey high-tech ceramic, lending the timepiece versatile beauty and impressive scratch resistance in a lightweight package. The satin-finish neutral tone of the case and bracelet form a harmonious contrast with the centrepiece of the watch: the high-gloss metallic dial. Gently concave in structure, the dial consists of a disc of stainless steel that has been polished to achieve a mesmerizing reflective finish. The reflective properties of the dial are further maximized by the addition of an unexpected detail: The underside of the matt grey hands has been given a rose gold-coloured finish, allowing them to be reflected in a different hue.

Made to be noticed
The True Face is a natural continuation of Zieta's other work with polished stainless steel: a series of perfectly polished mirrors and furniture entitled Plopp which, thanks to his experimental design approach, appear to have been blown up like a balloon. 'I am working in many parallel spheres: science, architecture, furniture design and art,' explains Zieta. “I'm always experiencing a lack of time, yet still needing it to create, aiming for something unique and timeless.”

Zieta's passion for materials research made him a natural partner for Rado, a brand known for pioneering the use of materials such as hardmetal and high-tech ceramic in the watchmaking industry. 'Since I use a bottom-up design approach that starts with materials, my objects can fully show off their material character,' says Zieta. 'The True Face has been made to be noticed and to exude respect for precious materials. These values create a positive connotation on the wrist.'

Rado CEO Matthias Breschan remarks, 'I first got to know Oskar's work when we featured his incredible blown-up metal mirrors and stools in our lightness-inspired pop-up gallery last year. I'm really pleased that we could work together to bring his vision into the Rado collection. The True Face is not only beautiful, but also a great design achievement.”

The Rado True Face is part of an exclusive series of limited edition timepieces launched by the brand this year, with renowned designers each applying their individual vision to the popular Rado True.
