The matt yellow high-tech ceramic case highlights the unique texture of the high-performance material and is combined with a case back in polished dark grey PVD-coated stainless steel with sapphire crystal and special engraving. It is complemented by a bracelet made from yellow cushion-shaped leather elements held by high-tech ceramic connectors. A stainless steel folding clasp with a dark grey PVD coating completes the composition. On the matt black dial with silver-coloured concentric circles, the hands provide strong contrasts from the centre: the minute and hour hands are painted in white, the second hand in neon red. They are powered by a modern automatic calibre. In an opening at 3 o’clock, the date is displayed in a typography specially designed by Tej Chauhan. Blue indexes between 9 and 12 o’clock refer to the time of day when things start moving – in the morning at the office or in the evening on a night out.
The Undigital plays with the distinctive shapes of the seven-segment display – the classic face of a digital watch – and transfers them to the analogue time display with hands. Luminous white Super-LumiNova clearly stands out, both during the day and in the dark, from the matt black dial, which has a completely puristic appearance. The unique high-tech ceramic case of the True Square provides the appropriate setting and, thanks to its innovative monobloc construction, is ultra-flat at only 9.6 mm high. The matt black PVD-coated titanium back and the smooth, matt black high-tech ceramic bracelet also contribute to the low weight of the watch. Style icons, contemporary design talents, innovative manufacturing technologies and high-tech materials that impress with a unique feel, durability and scratch resistance: the Rado True Square Undigital combines everything that makes Rado what it is. The watch is driven by a modern mechanical movement whose automatic winding is not only a work of art in itself but also a role model in terms of sustainability – in other words, completely undigital.
The Rado True Square Formafantasma – a design collaboration with the award-winning Italian-Dutch design duo – is sticking with tradition with a side of mystery. Taking the base of the ground-breaking new full high-tech ceramic True Square, this special design edition draws on the historic idea of a closed watch to create a bold and impactful style statement that is designed to stand the test of time.The True Square Formafantasma uses an extra layer of high-tech ceramic as the ultimate scratch-resistant protective layer in which a small window for the dial has been made. The window itself is protected by sapphire crystal.
