With all the new watches being launched at the SIHH 2010, it’s about time a new Rado came along, right? And by the likes of it, Rado seems to collaborate with British industrial designer Jasper Morrison one step further. The name of the collection- the r5.5 Automatic- is borrowed from the radius of the square dial and the chronograph’s automatic movement. The watch has been crafted with high-tech ceramics, which creates a beautiful combination between the watch case and its bracelet, concealing their links to make the watch appear as a continuous entity.
The matt black dial has striking white indexes and the hands to give the watch a sharp contrast. The face has a sapphire crystal case covering. The date function has been placed at 3 o’clock. The ceramic crown is also matt black, and the automatic movement can be seen through the transparent sapphire crystal case back.
