Rado’s New Automatic Ceramic Watch Is as Technical as It Is Stunning

Staying true to its gears, Rado has redesigned and relaunched its trusted ceramic timepiece in the True Collection. The new design, dubbed the True Open Heart Automatic ceramic watch, flaunts a skeletonized dial that is bold, ballsy, beautiful, and everything in between.

The True Collection first came to market in 2007 and quickly became one of Rado’s most popular option thanks in part to the watches’ comfortable fit, durable scratch-resistant casing, and elegant sapphire crystals. The newest creation in the lineup follows suit, but with a twist.

The skeleton appearance makes the Rado True Open Heart a timekeeping eye-catcher, providing a glimpse of the ever-reliable Swiss movement balance wheel (aka gear movement) at work within Rado’s stunning, case.

Usually, this type of watch makes telling the time of day a little more difficult. However, Rado’s scratch-resistant ceramic casing and wide spokes let the dial stand out in the right areas so it acts as both a functional timepiece as well as an attractive fashion statement. And, because it’s packed with 80 hours of power reserve and three popping colors, there is much to praise about Rado’s new creation.

The Rado True Open Heart is 40mm in diameter, 10.4mm thick, and 47.3mm in length — the perfect size for those who might not be used to wearing watches often. And because of the ceramic construction, it’s also extremely lightweight and won’t weigh your wrist down.

As technical as it is teeming with uniqueness and execution, the Rado True Open Heart Automatic ceramic watch is a great example of how a simple and thoughtful redesign can bring a wristwatch to new heights. The ceramic material is what made the True Collection so intriguing to begin with, so coupling that with a standout silhouette only makes sense.

Although it wears a bit of an expensive price tag — somewhere in the $2,050- $2,200, depending on which version you choose — the Rado True Open Heart Automatic is built to stand the test of time with durability and timelessness.

But, if this doesn’t strike your fancy, you can always take a look at the best watches under $1,000.
