Fair and Square: Meet Rado’s New True Square Skeleton

Square ceramic watches are a trademark of the Swiss watch brand Rado. The most recent example, the True Square Skeleton, adds an additional creative dimension that brings a new quality to the characteristic square case, which is available in signature black (Ref. R27124162), plasma gray (Ref. R27125152), and white (Ref. R27126012) monobloc high-tech ceramic. The dial is laid out on two levels, allowing a glimpse of the skeletonized automatic caliber R808 through cleverly arranged cut-outs. In addition, two bridges stretching parallel across the dial enhance the geometric charm of the watch.

In the black and plasma gray versions, the anthracite coating of the minute wheel bridge and main plate complements the nickel color of the bottom dial plate and its Côtes de Genève decoration. The white version comes with a gold-colored center wheel bridge: 

The Swatch Group-manufactured R808 is fitted with an antimagnetic Nivachron hairspring for enhanced resistance to shock, temperature fluctuations, and magnetic fields, and features an 80-hour power reserve. 

The Rado True Square Skeleton measures 38mm x 44.2mm wide and has a height of 9.7mm. Pricing is marked at approximately $3,100 when converted to USD.
