Rado unveils glamorous garden-inspired timepiece
Dubai, UAE, February 21, 2018: Rado is known for its avant-garde approach to design and materials, but the Swiss watchmaker is now taking its cues from nature too. The pioneering brand has added a glamorous garden-inspired piece to its super slim True Thinline collection.
Following last year's successful introduction of four high-tech ceramic colours to the True Thinline collection, Rado presents this gorgeous green timepiece, now featuring intricate and organic detailing. The tone-on-tone dial is crafted from green mother-of-pearl with a delicate leaf structure printed onto its underside. Gold-coloured indexes are metallised on the sapphire crystal, appearing to float effortlessly above the dial. Fully constructed from glossy green ceramic, this flora-themed wristwatch dazzles without being flashy, conveying a mood of down-to-earth luxury.
Back to nature
As society becomes increasingly digitised and mechanised, people are turning back to the natural world as a source of inspiration and adornment. This trend led Rado to its creative partnership with Grandi Giardini Italiani: the organisation promotes one of the most important intersections between design and nature – the rich heritage of grand Italian gardens – and served as inspiration for the new True Thinline.
'The origin of earth and the forces of nature are leading ideas to redefine our future, with an intrinsic understanding that all matter matters,' remarks renowned trend forecaster Lidewij Edelkoort. With lush details and an organic look and feel, Rado's latest True Thinline beautifully captures this aesthetic moment.
In addition to its minimalist shape and 5 mm profile, this green headturner offers all the same beauty and performance as Rado's other high-tech ceramic wristwatches. As well as being lightweight and hypoallergenic, high-tech ceramic is also known for its incredible scratch resistance, making the nature-themed
True Thinline an ideal lifelong accessory for a generation that is allowing their personal style to take root.
