Swiss watchmaker Rado unveils its new eye-popping True Thinline range, inspired by legendary designer Le Corbusier. Available in nine variants, the True Thinline Les Couleurs Le Corbusier Collection features the brand’s signature high-tech ceramic but in bold colorways. Just 999 units will be made for each color.
The new collection comes courtesy of Rado’s partnership with Les Couleurs Suisses, which holds the license to Le Corbusier’s original palette of architectural hues. However, Rado says this is just one of the first collaborative projects with the outfit.
Le Corbusier, if you don’t know, ranks among the most iconic architects of the modern era. Spanning a fruitful career, he was a master of materials and aesthetics and even developed groundbreaking theories on color. Moreover, his color palette, with 63 shades, is among the world’s most popular. Additionally, designers still use this palette today to inform their work.
Rado’s latest collection faithfully reflects this gorgeous, iconic palette. The lineup is pure eyecandy, coated in vibrant pastels. Bonus: Each case-back features Le Corbusier’s famous palette. The case, dial, and strap adopt a singular color scheme for a well-rounded monochromatic presentation. What’s more, all the watches run on quartz movement and feature two hands. They also come printed indexes and a brand logo to round out the whole look.
Yours for just $2,750. From creal white to ultramarine blue, there’s definitely a color in this collection you’ll fancy. It’s more than just a watch, though. It’s a masterstroke in color and a historical piece you can wrap around your wrist. Hit the link below for more information.CHECK THEM OUT
