Rado True Thinline Studs Bethan Gray Limited Edition Watch Review
Friday - 09 November 2018
Rado team up with award-winning British designer, Bethan Gray to reinvent the True Thinline timepiece. The collaboration shows Rado’s desire to push boundaries in design. Working with the likes of Bethan Gray allows for Rado to explore new ideas bringing a fresh approach to some of their iconic models. Adding a unique touch to the True Thinline collection, the designer works with luxurious materials and intriguing elements not seen before in the Rado line up.
Bethan Gray is a London based furniture and homeware designer who has won many awards for her craft. She creates beautiful handmade collections that exist to tell stories of travel, her childhood and nearly forgotten cultures. She translates her skill in luxury homeware to the watch platform so well, the Rado True Thinline is sure to be a hit.
The shimmering grey marquetry patterned dial enhances the elegance of Rado’s slimmest timepiece reflecting Gray’s unique artistry. A precise pattern that divides the circular dial into equal segments each a different shade of grey – a simple yet effective way to transform the watch face. Complimented by the gold tones, the Rado logo appears to float at 12 o’clock, as it is metallized to the underside of the sapphire crystal. The hour and minute hands glide beautifully around the minimalistic dial that does not need traditional numbers to tell the time. Framed in a circle of gold, the studded leather strap adds a striking, unique touch to the watch designed to be admired as the strap moulds to the wrist. A feature inspired by Bethan Gray's brass details in her Stud collection, which bring layers of intrigue and tactility that tempts the wearer to feel the contrast.
Limited to 1001 pieces, the True Thinline Studs Limited Edition is a timeless design that stands the test of time. Admired for its beauty, elegance and originality, the design is a work of art. The charming limited edition is as comfortable as it looks with its lightness, scratch resistance and hypoallergenic properties – features that the True Thinline series is famous for.
