Radar was born in 1917. It is also the first brand to use ceramic material. Through the skillful use of ceramic material, it has laid the foundation for the rise of radar. The name is associated with a watch with a personal design made of non-fragile materials. Today, what I want to accept is not a radar ceramic watch, but a new HyperChrome 1616 titanium watch model launched by Radar at the Baselworld 2016, the official model of the watch is: 764.0172.3.101.
The radar Haoxing series is a new series launched in 2012. Inspired by the classic models of the Radar, it has a watch series suitable for various occasions. This titanium Haoxing series watch brought today is from The shape is still very novel from the material.
This radar 1616 watch is a new interpretation of RADO’s classic Cape Horn series. It is designed to commemorate the 400th anniversary of humanity’s brave exploration of South American headlands. In this 400 years, radar launched the The Series 1616 watch underscores the brand’s eternal pursuit of avant-garde design and superior materials.
Titanium case design, the hardness of titanium metal is far more than ordinary metal coating or coating. Rado Swiss radar uses a hardening process to make titanium hardness up to 1000 Vickers, close to 5 times the hardness of steel, and the weight is only half of the same volume of steel.
The 46 mm diameter case design is also a highlight of the watch. The case design has sharp edges and corners, and there is a circle in a square. This design is honest. At first glance, it feels average when seen in Basel, without highlights. , No desire to buy, but now turn around and take a closer look and feel more and more beautiful, this is a ‘second eye beauty’ watch.
The watch uses a 46 mm diameter design and a hardened grade 5 titanium case. The silver-white dial is equipped with golden hour hands and hands. The watch has a date display window and a day display window at 6 o’clock. The weekly display window of the watch is a vertical line display, which is obviously different from the current mainstream horizontal line display. It is awkward at first glance, and it looks good again, with personality and aesthetics, and the crown of the watch. There are two upper and lower bridge design to ensure the safety of the crown.
The watch uses a dense bottom design, so the precise movement inside the movement cannot be seen, but it also ensures the watch is 100 meters waterproof. The watch is equipped with an ETA C07.621 self-winding movement, which can provide 80 hours of power reserve when fully wound. At present, many Swiss brands use this movement or slightly modify it to achieve 80 hours of power. Reserve small long-powered watch.
Summary: This watch introduced today is a hardened grade 5 titanium case, and there is also a black-faced ceramic watch for selection. Although this model is a 46 mm diameter design, it is worn. It doesn’t look overwhelming on the average wrist, similar to Panerai’s models.
