A contemporary black beauty, the True Stratum showcases a dial with asymmetrically arranged descending steps, which serve to emphasize the three dimensionality of the concave watch face. Further depth is added to the design with a perfectly centered black dot applied directly to the underside of the sapphire crystal, which hovers over and casts its shadow on the dial. The True Stratum features matt black surfaces that are crafted in Rado's signature material, high-tech ceramic. Limited to 1001 pieces.
