  • With its index-free dial and deep grey monochrome colour palette, the Rado HyperChrome Ultra Light is a meditation on simplicity. Naturally dark grey silicon nitride lends the lightweight matt monobloc case its notable hue. The dial is texturized with concentric grooves that gently sweep downward, reminiscent of the soothing patterns sculpted in the sand of a zen garden. A fashion-forward Nato strap secures the 56-gram limited-edition timepiece to the wrist, capturing the essence of a clean and simple unisex aesthetic.

  • The HyperChrome Ultra Light is a silicone nitride timepiece in Rado's lightest iteration yet. Common in the aerospace and automotive industries, silicon nitride is a high-performance material that merges exceptional hardness and lightness. Compared to Rado's traditional high-tech ceramic - itself an incredibly hard and light material - super light silicon nitride ceramic boasts even more hardness while being only half the weight. Sandblasted inserts made of hardened titanium, another Rado materials innovation, add to the HyperChrome Ultra Light's featherweight feel, and the automatic movement's anodized aluminum ebauche protect against wear while significantly reducing the overall weight of the timepiece.
