The newest addition to the Hyperchrome collection from Rado comes in four versions, all crafted out of plasma ceramic. Although the four versions clearly differ across styles from casual to dressy, they are all 42mm which will allow the wearer to enjoy the watch across any number of occasions. The movement is the ETA 2895-2 with the distinctive anchor-shaped rotor found on all modern Rado watches with an exhibition caseback. As with the other Hyperchrome watches, there is a metal insert on the side of the all-ceramic case to add a bit of contrast. With a water resistance of 100m these watches will can be worn under basically any conditions, in the water or out, because the ceramic will not expand around the crystal, leaving a gap which can let water in (something that happens to metal watches exposed to high temperatures). I have not been able to find any information on pricing yet. More pictures of this watch can be found below. Rado did such a nice job on these...
An explanation of the plasma treatment can be found on a previous blog post of mine.
