Rado Replica watches uk reveals a new dark brown hue for the HyperChrome family
In terms of colour, the choices available for ceramic watches remain fairly limited – although companies like Rado, Hublot replica watches, and of course Rolex are slowly adding to the spectrum. Black and white are relatively straightforward, but every new colour requires the addition of a different blend of metal oxides to the basic zirconium oxide. In recent years that has given us red, blue, grey and yellow ceramics.
Now, we can add brown to the ceramic colour palette. At this year’s Baselworld, Rado replica watches uk revealed its new HyperChrome models in a rich brown shade – a new look for the high-tech ceramic pieces that the company has been known for since 1986.
There are three models in dark brown, featuring the HyperChrome monobloc case: an automatic replica watches, a ladies automatic with diamonds and a chronograph. Despite the pictures (and press release) that would have you regard them as very chocolate-y in colour, in reality they’re closer to a dark grey lustre – which to many will make them a touch more wearable.
As the ceramic is heated in a specially Rolex replica watches uk developed kiln, the colours alter – but sintering is a very tricky process to get exactly right. Rado has a proven record of doing just that though: Baselworld also saw the company showcasing its plasma high-tech ceramic with a metallic look.
The HyperChrome Tachymeter Brown Ceramic Automatic Chronograph is picked out with rose gold-coloured accents – indices, sub-dials, pushers, crown and hands are all tinted PVD, as well as the flashes of rose gold down the sides of the case.
A teeny, blink-and-you’ll-miss-it date window sits between 4 and 5 o’clock – the overlapping sub-dials mean there’s a lot to fit in here. The tachymeter has actually been etched into the cheap Breitling replica polished ceramic bezel, and filled in with white LumiNova. The bracelet continues the combination of finishes on the dial with matte and polished ceramic links.
Inside is an ETA 2894-2 with 42-hour power reserve, a modular design that uses a traditional base with a self-contained chrono module. The HyperChrome Automatic Chronograph is priced at £3,650.
