THE FIN­ISH­ING TOUCHES

ACT­ING NAT­U­RAL

While I love the sleek look and ul­tra-cool feel­ing of ceramic watches, they can be cum­ber­some – I find them heavy and clunk them against ta­bles (and oc­ca­sion­ally other peo­ple) as I ges­tic­u­late (which I do a lot). But hav­ing spot­ted a thin, char­coal-coloured one with rose gold ac­cents on a model’s wrist at an event re­cently, my head was turned. I’ve since dis­cov­ered that it’s one of three new watches by Rado, which are all in­spired by na­ture (the oth­ers be­ing oceanic blue and for­est green, both with mother-of-pearl faces en­graved to look like waves or leaf veins). It has a tex­tured di­a­mond face, which looks like shim­mer­ing earth, is light to wear and vir­tu­ally un­break­able. I’m sold.
