Watch Porn: The Rado HyperChrome

The seventies-inspired timepiece that's gone to the top of our want list

The Seventies are back. Wide-legged trousers are everywhere; prawn cocktails and fondues are firmly back on menus, and a tertiary palette of avocado, mustard and terracotta is ruling the runways once again.

The watch industry is getting in on the act, too. At April’s Baselworld watch fair, Patek Philippe unveiled a distinctly Seventies take on its classic Nautilus sports watch.

Rado’s new chocolate brown HyperChrome is an equally welcome take on the trend. Featuring a high-tech, matt brown ceramic case, a polished brown ceramic bezel and rose gold-coloured stainless steel inserts, the watch is a playful, contemporary take on Rado’s landmark timepiece.

What’s more, thanks to the extremely hard-wearing ceramic fabrication, it will withstand your most energetic disco hustle.
