Rado HyperChrome Plasma Diamonds Limited Edition

The Rado HyperChrome is well known for its sporty sophisticated look. Now Rado welcomes a glittering new model to this line. The Rado HyperChrome Diamonds collection now offers a new, limited edition model featuring high-tech shine of plasma ceramic and sparkling of 56 glittering diamonds on the rose gold coloured bezel.
With its cool and warm tones this timepiece is the ideal finishing touch for any outfit. Optimum comfort and a streamlined, fluid case construction with specially developed, sleek side inserts, combine to bring a flash of brilliance to even the most discerning of wrists.
Streamlined and subtle but still elegantly eye-catching, the Rado HyperChrome family is the ultimate all-day, all-occasion timepiece.
The plasma carburising process, first used by Rado, consists in loading finished white ceramic pieces into an oven, where the ceramic heats up to a temperature of 900ºC and gasses activate at 20,000ºC changing the molecular structure of the pieces and producing a cool grey metallic colour. Remarkably, this colour is achieved without the use of any metal, and though it changes only on the surface of the piece, it will not fade over time.
As the benefits of the ceramic do not change through this process, it retains its scratch resistance, adding depth to the metallic shine of this ceramic. However cool plasma ceramic may be, it adapts to skin temperature, making this timepiece undeniably luxurious and unconditionally comfortable.
