The Swiss manufacturer, Rado, marked a new milestone in the history of the horology by the presentation of the world’s thinnest ceramic skeleton timepiece ever created.
At the start of the New Year, the iconic watchmaker unveiled its latest novelty – the True Thinline Automatic Skeleton Watch.
This adorable newcomer reminds us that beauty is about more than just size. It features a very slim case with only 7.8 mm in thickness. The charming case measures 40 mm x 44.6 mm and it is crafted from the finest white ceramic. The case incorporates a thin fixed bezel and a steel crown with a ceramic cabochon.
The new Rado watch is protected on both sides by sapphire crystals with antireflective coatings and it is extremely scratch-resistant.
Inside the world’s thinnest ceramic case, there is ETA 2892-S2 mechanical movement. The 21 jewels movement provides sufficient 42 hours of power reserve when fully charged.
The True Thinline Automatic Skeleton features an open-work dial which reveals a full view of the automatic mechanisms inside the watch. For the best readability, the striking blue hour and minute hands stand out against the white dial with applied steel hour markers.
For the best comfort and easiness of wrist movement, Rado attached this fabulous novelty to a white rubber strap, fitted with a white ceramic buckle.
I still do not have any confirmed information about the retail price of this watch, but according to some rumors, I assume it will be reasonable.
Last year, Rado presented the world’s thinnest ceramic timepiece ever created – True Thinline with a movement no thicker than a credit card (only 1 mm thick). The case is also ultra-thin with 4.9 mm in thickness on a smaller model and 5 mm thickness on the larger one. For this watch, the Swiss manufacturer has won the Good Design Award 2011. This award is one of the world’s most recognized programs for design excellence worldwide.
