Born from a visionary collaboration with the renowned Japanese fashion designer Kunihiko Morinaga, Rado has unveiled the True Square x Kunihiko Morinaga, a high-tech ceramic timepiece, featuring a transparent dial treated with photochromic technology, enabling it to alter its color based on ambient light conditions much like the "fashion scientists" designs that shift hues in sunlight or ultraviolet light.

The watch is powered by the automatic calibre R734 with an 80-hour power reserve and an antimagnetic Nivachron™ balance spring. The movement holder is adorned with a circular grain decoration, adding a touch of refined elegance to the inner workings. Encasing this True Square x Kunihiko Morinaga watch is a polished black high-tech ceramic case and crown, exuding a sleek and contemporary allure. Measuring 38 mm in size, the case strikes the perfect balance between sophistication and wearability. The flat sapphire crystal, with anti-reflective coating on both sides, ensures exceptional clarity and readability, allowing you to fully appreciate the intricate details of the watch.

Perhaps the most captivating aspect of the True Square x Kunihiko Morinaga is its transparent dial with a photochromic effect, which transforms the very essence of the watch. When exposed to sunlight (UV rays), the dial darkens, obscuring the movement beneath. However, as the sun sets, the dial shade evolves into a captivating grey hue, eventually becoming transparent, revealing the mesmerizing Rado calibre R734 at the heart of the watch.


Complementing the dial's enchanting display are the silver hands, enhanced with white veneer and white Super-LumiNova®, ensuring excellent visibility in any lighting condition. The polished black high-tech ceramic bracelet completes the ensemble, offering both comfort and durability, making this timepiece a true companion for every occasion.
