More than meets the eye.

Life is an adventure that challenges one to be at the top of his game while experiencing trials and tribulations. To overcome such obstacles, the assistance of a hardy companion may help the individual to stay grounded in reality. One such candidate is the Rado HyperChrome 1616 timepiece.

Conceived as a reinterpretation of the brand’s vintage Cape Horn collection which was introduced back in the late 60s, the Hyperchrome 1616 also pays tribute and obtains its name from the brave discovery of the South American headland in the year 1616.

The HyperChrome 1616 watch sports a hypermasculine silhouette in respect to the spirit of discovery. Burly yet stylish, its form reflects the brand’s boundary-pushing approach in both design and materials used. The toughness from the watch’s 46mm face might seem hefty but it weighs only at a slender 106 grams. 

Where the Rado HyperChrome 1616 truly shines is in its use of light but ultra-durable materials: the case is constructed in the brand’s signature high-tech ceramic, which is five times harder than stainless steel while being only three-fourths its weight.

With its robust look and lightweight construction, the Rado HyperChrome 1616 is a bold and comfortable partner for those willing to venture unexplored grounds in life.
