Rado’s True Thinline Studs Limited Edition, which went on sale in October, is the latest model created in collaboration with a globally renowned designer, in this case British furniture creator Bethan Gray.
Ms Gray is famous for her use of bold texture, pattern and luxurious materials and was named Best British Designer in 2013 by Elle Decoration.
She combines her flair for materials and eye for details with the Rado True Thinline collaboration, which adopts a grey marquetry pattern dial from the world of interior design. A contrasting gold Rado logo appears float above the dial.
The use of contrasting colours and materials continues on the strap where black leather is offset with gold coloured studs set in a hopscotch pattern.
The matt-black high-tech ceramic monobloc case with gold coloured elements on the dial ring and crown complete the look.
“I love the strong visual impact of this watch,” says Rado CEO Matthias Breschan. “This True Thinline is eye-catching, luxurious and unmistakably Rado. Bethan Gray’s approach to materials and pattern perfectly complements Rado’s True Thinline collection.”
Only 1001 pieces of the limited edition are being made, with a retail price of £1560.
