A stunning Rado timepiece made in collaboration with Spanish designer Inma Bermúdez. The Delta Selection recognizes the work performed by industrial designers and production companies and is the benchmark in the sector.
The True Thinline Gem was the result of the collaboration between Rado and award-winning Spanish designer Inma Bermúdez that brought luxurious materials and intriguing elements to the Rado True Thinline. Combining facetted sapphire crystal, the True Thinline Gem Limited Edition uses a unique play of light absorption, reflection and refraction to create the illusion of depth and thickness in the brand’s ground breaking thinnest watch.
This awarded timepiece is the epitome of elegance and sophistication with innovative design, and is limited to 1,001 pieces. Its playful and light dial also features 12 diamonds and gold coloured accents. The True Thinline Gem is proudly made of white high-tech ceramic making it extremely light and comfortable at only 5.6mm thickness. You might almost forget you are wearing it but just a quick glance at your wrist and its beauty will captivate you.
