For 2018, the Rado HyperChrome Chronograph Automatic is now available in a beautifully contrasting bronze and high-tech ceramic construction.

Limited to 999 pieces, this watch combines two materials ideally 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 HyperChrome Chronograph is Rado’s signature all day, every occasion watch for men.

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 brown vintage look leather strap. Adding to this are side inserts and chronograph pushers crafted in bronze – humanity’s oldest alloy. Rose gold colored hands and indexes echo the subtle metallic sheen of the bronze, while a bezel engraved with a tachometric scale provides additional functionality.

The watch is a limited edition of 999 pieces and it will be in the $5,000 range when it’s released in June.
