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.

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.
