Rado True Blaze Limited Edition

Rado presents the limited edition True Blaze, a collection of exclusive timepieces that have been co-created with American interior designer Sam Amoia .

Limited to 1001 pieces, the Rado True Blaze is a celebration of glitz and glamour. Housed in a 40 mm plasma high-tech ceramic case, the watch evokes a disco ball feeling on the wrist.
The dial looks as though it were completely covered in a layer of silvery metallic slivers, giving the appearance of a glittery explosion. Despite this ostentatious element, the watch maintains a minimalist feel thanks to the unique placement of the gold-coloured logo and indexes: They are metallized directly on the underside of the glass, allowing them to float above the dial and creating an airy, spacious aesthetic.
The Rado True Blaze is an expression of Amoia's distinctive approach to design. His work draws heavily upon nature and materials, resulting in sculptural, highly tactile pieces that are layered with plaster and cement or encrusted with semiprecious stones. The latter approach is strongly reflected in the dial of the True Blaze.
The dial’s textured metallic structure is created using a galvanic process that replicates the crystalline structure of diamond powder.
