In a seamless union of ancient and modern materials, the Rado HyperChrome Chronograph Automatic is now available in a beautifully contrasting bronze and high-tech ceramic construction. Limited to 999 pieces, this exclusive timepiece joins two materials that are perfectly suited for use in watchmaking: Bronze, which marks the passage of time by developing a rich patina, and high-tech ceramic, which boasts lightness and superior scratch resistance. The sporty-chic HyperChrome Chronograph is Rado’s signature all day, every occasion timepiece for gents. In this new model, the 45 mm automatic chronograph retains its scratch-resistant high-tech ceramic case – here in matt black – but swaps out the ceramic bracelet for a supple brown vintage look leather strap. Adding to this harmonious contrast are side inserts and chronograph pushers crafted in bronze – humanity’s oldest alloy. Rose gold coloured hands and indexes echo the subtle metallic sheen of the bronze, while a bezel engraved with a tachometric scale provides additional functionality.
