V10K Concept Chronograph from Rado

May 12, 2009
In 2009, Rado is proud to introduce a new innovative version of its iconic V10K watch, famous as the hardest watch in the world.

The original V10K was unveiled in 2004. The watch boasts a high-tech diamond surface achieving a hardness of 10,000 Vickers, also achieved only by natural diamonds.

The new Rado V10K Concept Chronograph was born due to continuous exploration and testing of new materials, construction methods and processes.

The case of the timepiece
is crafted from a revolutionary ceramic material adapted by Rado to the field of watchmaking. The case construction is characterized by remarkable lightness. The interior of the V10K Concept Chronograph has the metal components crafted in titanium, much lighter than steel.

All surfaces of the watch, including its head, case back, bracelet, crown and push-pieces, are now provided with a unique coating - in high-tech diamond. Thus, the surfaces have acquired an outstanding hardness and a matte finish.

The design of the bracelet is worth special attention, with articulation created with help of an elastic shape memory alloy core.

The sapphire crystal construction demonstrates a highly complicated and deliberate design. It is faceted and slopes away to the edge of the timepiece, accentuating its lively nature.

The dial of the Rado watch features the chronograph counters that remind a dashboard.

The Rado V10K Concept Chronograph, reviewed by Watches.InfoNIAC.com, is a powerfully designed watch that demonstrates perfectly defined surface and provides supreme timekeeping precision and absolute comfort on the wrist.
