Originally launched in 2007, the Rado True was redesigned and re-launched in 2015. This year Rado expands the collection with three ceramic-cased, open-worked versions, each polished to a different color (black, brown and plasma metallic) and each retaining Rado’s signature high-tech style but with an obvious nod to traditional skeleton designs.
Thus, opened to the viewer from both front and back, the ETA C07.631 automatic movement is framed in polished splendor. The dial is cut out to display the gear train, balance spring and movement plate held together with a 40mm x 47.3mm x 10.4mm ceramic case and integrated three-row polished ceramic bracelet (with titanium clasp).
The new True Open Heart Automatic again reminds us that Rado has long been known as a pioneer in developing new types of case and bracelet materials. The brand offers the widest range of watches with collections not confined to standard steel cases and bracelets.
At this price level, you’ll not find another company with Rado’s imaginative selection of ceramic, ceramic alloys, diamond, hard metal and sapphire cases and bracelets. And with the True Open Heart Automatic, those who enjoy high-tech materials on their wrist can have them smartly combined with an automatic movement (the ETA C07.631) that boasts an extra-long power-reserve of eighty hours.
Prices: $2,050 to $2,200.
