Sorry for the week of no posts, it was the last week of the quarter and every class had at least one test.
Rado, a company whose entire business plan is built around simple watches, has released another extremely simple watch. The watch is so simple, in fact, that it almost reminds me of a Timex or any other $25 watch you could find at a store. I can guarantee, however, that the watch would not feel like it was only $25. The Rado True N25E121, which was designed through a collaboration between Taiwanese graphic designer Aaron Nieh and Rado, is Rado's second watch made to honor the World Design Capital Taipei 2016. The case of the watch is ceramic and it seems it has an unhealthy obsession with gray. The dial is gray, the case is gray, the strap is gray. Even the buckle is gray (it's also ceramic). The watch will be limited to just 146 pieces.
Not much information is available on this watch as of yet, so I will have to do a second look soon. This a very special new ceramic watch from Rado. The case is made completely of ceramic. I know what you're thinking, "Ceramic and Rado?, that's nothing special." However, this is the first ceramic touch watch with two time zones. What is a "touch" watch?, a touch watch allows you to change the time without a crown and, as Rado puts it, "with just the sweep of a finger...." To see all 5 versions of the new watch you can visit the Rado Website. I wish Baselworld wasn't over...
