The positive atmosphere of those early contacts sparked a new collection: the Rado True Thinline Nature. In the years since, the product has matured and is now in full bloom, with three new models celebrating exceptional design, eternal nature and futuristic materials, in equal measure. The new line, aptly named the Rado True x Great Gardens of the World collection, represents a new achievement in this collaboration.
The first in the series or “Chapter 1” is a timepiece with a case and bracelet in turquoise ceramic. Cradled in that smooth and luminous monobloc case is a mother-of-pearl dial of matching shade, with fine decorations in beautifully complementary technics, filigree and cloisonné-style organic elements with nature-inspired motifs and jasmine flowers, unobstructed behind the rose-gold coloured hands.
At each index, a Top Wesselton diamond adds delicate notes of brilliance to the dial, behind a sapphire crystal with antireflective coating on both faces. The case back, in titanium, carries a smoked sapphire crystal window that allows admiring glimpses at the Rado calibre R763 movement.
The second model or “Chapter 2” wears a more mysterious air. Black high-tech ceramic case, matching mother-of-pearl dial with bright jasmine flowers, rose-gold coloured hands and a Top Wesselton diamond at each index. On the underside, a black PVD-coated titanium back with a smoked sapphire crystal, for the curious or the introspective wearer. Inside the timepiece, the same Rado calibre R763 movement as found in the other versions, equipped with a NivachronTM antimagnetic hairspring.
“Chapter 3” wears its own enigma and sophistication. Its sparkling diamonds and the deep night reflected upon its mother-of-pearl dial, carry a statement of great achievement with more yet to come. The finely engraved oak leaf patterns speak of Nature’s vital place in human existence. The hand gently brushes against the cool and smooth ceramic case.
