(Switzerland Linnow – 2017) Swiss pioneer watch brand RADO has launched a new co-creation design. This time, Rado and the pioneering Polish architect Oscar Zieta presented a limited edition masterpiece of timepieces. This watch combines the classic design and high-tech structure of the RADO True series with the iconic reflective surface of Zieta.
The case of the RADO True Series Face mirror uses grey matte high-tech ceramics. This lightweight material gives the watch all-round beauty and high wear resistance. The neutral-toned case and bracelet are satin-finished, in harmony with the watch’s most striking high-gloss dial. The dial is made of thin stainless steel, slightly recessed and polished to have a mirror-like fascinating effect of light and shadow. By adding unexpected details, the dial’s reflectivity is maximized: the bottom of the matte gray hands is decorated with rose gold to present a different multi-colored luster.
The True Halo watch is another natural continuation of Zietta’s polished stainless steel works, which include a series of perfectly polished mirrors and furniture called Plopp. Creative experimental design methods make the watch look like a blown up balloon. ‘My work spans many fields: science, architecture, furniture design, and art,’ explains Zietta. ‘I need to take time to create works with unique and timeless qualities, but at the same time I always feel the urgency of time.’
As a material pioneer, Rado Swiss Rado uses hard metal and high-tech ceramic materials for the watchmaking industry, and Zietta’s enthusiasm for material research has made him a logical partner for Rado Swiss Rado. ‘I started with materials, and adopted a design method that goes from details to the whole, so that my work can fully show their material characteristics,’ Zieta said. ‘True True Face mirrors not only have an eye-catching appearance, but also have a high respect for precious materials. These values give deep connotations to the wrist.’
Mr. Matthias Breschan, RADO Global President, commented, “I first learned about Mr. Oscar’s work at last year’s“ Light Design ”theme exhibition. The work is really amazing. I am very honored that we can have the opportunity to work together and integrate his design ideas into the RADO product range. True True Face mirror is not only beautiful, but also a great Design achievement. ‘
RADO Swiss Rado True True Series Face mirror is part of the brand’s limited edition watch series launched this year. Many well-known designers will cooperate with the brand in depth and focus their personal design vision on RADO Swiss Rado True. Among the real series.
