THE FINISHING TOUCHES
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.
