Rado HyperChrome Automatic Chronograph

Imagine what would happen if you could take a piece of white ceramic and transform it into a gleaming watch case that looked like metal. Now imagine you could do it without using any metal. Sounds impossible.


 
Imagine what would happen if you could take a piece of white ceramic and transform it into a gleaming watch case that looked like metal. Now imagine you could do it without using any metal. Sounds impossible. 
 
Rado didn’t just imagine it but also accomplished it. Using modern and advanced materials technology Rado took a finished, polished monobloc white high-tech ceramic watch case, and individual bracelet links and subjected them to plasma treatment. The result is a collection of individual perfect pieces which now have a unique warm grey metallic shine. 
 
A perfect combination of technology, style and luxury the Rado HyperChrome Automatic Chronograph Plasma Ceramic is the perfect product to sum up the Rado DNA. The monobloc case, injected at high-pressure, is a groundbreaking construction. As a single piece of ceramic, it contains no steel cage as many ceramic timepieces do. This makes it lightweight as well as super scratch-resistant and comfortable to wear.
 
The final monobloc piece goes into a special oven, where a plasma column activates gases at 20,000°C. These gases permeate the ceramic, permanently altering the composition of its surface and bringing out a brilliant metallic sheen that will never fade. 
 
This form of modern alchemy, where the molecular composition of the ceramic is changed by gases activated at high temperature, now features on the newest Rado families. Scintillatingly scientific and super stylish, plasma high-tech ceramic has a brilliant metallic shine in a warm grey tone, without using any metal.
