Rado collaborates again with Kunihiko Morinaga

The watchmaker has unveiled its second collaboration with visionary Japanese fashion designer Kunihiko Morinaga. The new Rado True Square X Kunihiko Special Edition watch features a square polished black monobloc high-tech ceramic case and crown. The black PVD sandblasted titanium case back is fitted with a sapphire crystal bearing the metallised inscription: Kunihiko Morinaga Special Edition.

The transparent dial is one of the watch’s defining elements. In true Kunihiko Morinaga fashion, it has a photochromic treatment, which means that it changes colour according to the available light. When it is exposed to sunlight, the dial darkens. But as the sun goes down the dial shade evolves into grey and finally becomes transparent, revealing Rado Calibre R734 at the heart of the watch.

In 2017, Rado already collaborated with Kunihiko Morinaga to create the True Shadow. This timepiece already blended mastery of materials with the colour-changing technology for which the avant-garde designer is so well known.
