Jason Pitsch

Ahead of Baselworld 2018, the world’s biggest watch show, which takes place next month, Rado recently previewed a new chronograph that combines scratch resistant black ceramic and bronze. The HyperChrome Bronze Chronograph Limited Edition comes in a matte black ceramic case measuring 45 mm x 13 mm (50.3 mm lug to lug) and is contrasted by bronze chronograph pushers and side inserts. The hands and indices are a similar hue to the bronze but are actually rose gold plated. Bronze is an alloy the consists primarily of copper and is mixed with materials such as tin and aluminum.
