Rado Swiss Radar ‘hyperchrome’ Series Introduction

With the coming of the celebration season, we are all eager to seek a gorgeous and charming atmosphere, lighting up the carnival feast with perfect accessories. RADO not only pays attention to decorating your appearance, but also considers your comfort. It is with this understanding of customers that the Swiss Rado HyperChrome series has added two new models that made their debut at the Baselworld Watch & Jewellery Show in 2012. The rose gold or gold-colored parts of the two newly introduced models are made of Ceramos ™ titanium carbide cermet innovative materials, and the design inherits many classic features of other models of the HyperChrome series. Ceramos ™ titanium carbide cermets are lightweight and extremely hard. They are not only hard to wear, they also adapt to the body temperature of the wearer.

High-hardness aesthetics: Ceramos ™ titanium carbide cermet
Ceramos ™ titanium carbide cermet is a combination of titanium carbide and metal alloy. Before calcining or ‘sintering’ at a high temperature of 1,500 ° C, the material is subjected to a high-pressure injection molding process of 1,000 bar. RADO introduced the platinum gold Ceramos ™ titanium carbide cermet in 2010. This new color is created by precisely adjusting the composition of high-tech ceramics and their metal binders. Although gold watches are prone to scratches, the high hardness of Ceramos ™ titanium carbide cermets allows them to maintain a high degree of wear resistance even after years of use.
Long-lasting design shines forever

Extremely Pure Beauty In Bloom Brief Comment On Vacheron Constantin Traditionnelle 14 Days Power Reserve Tourbillon

Although the first tourbillon was born as early as 1801, only a few watchmakers have the ability to independently develop and manufacture this complex watch. Combining the tourbillon with such an amazing power reserve requires a unique structure. The Traditionnelle 14-Day Power Reserve Tourbillon is equipped with a 2260 manual-winding mechanical movement, which can provide excellent power reserve for up to 14 days.
   

   In addition to the tourbillon and small seconds at 6 o’clock, this watch also has a slightly off-centre hour and minute hands, and is equipped with a power reserve indicator. A swinging hand shows the remaining energy, and the rotation range reaches 280 degrees. This area is larger than the power reserve display area of ​​traditional watches, so the swing range of the hands can be accurately divided into 14 days, and each day is divided into two small cells, each cell represents 12 hours, so it is very easy to read the stored power.

In summary: The new Traditionnelle 14-day power reserve tourbillon continues the meticulous and extremely pure aesthetics of the series. The bezel is exquisite and thin, the case and the base are slightly grooved, the screw-in sapphire crystal case back, the white gold pointed sword-shaped hands, and the bezel is also set with rectangular cut diamonds, which makes the rock gray dial shine. Each element demonstrates the low-key charm and superb technology of the series, vividly explaining Vacheron Constantin’s philosophy of integrating tradition with modernity.
