Gently concave in structure, the dial of the True Face consists of a disc of stainless steel that has been polished to achieve a mesmerizing reflective finish. The reflective properties of the dial are further maximized by the addition of an unexpected detail: The underside of the matt grey hands has been given a rose gold-coloured finish, allowing the hands to be reflected in a different hue. Limited to 1001 pieces.
CO-DESIGNER: OSKAR ZIETA (POLAND). Polish architect Oskar Zieta's passion for materials research made him an ideal partner for Rado, and his work on the Rado True Face is a natural extension of his experimental design approach. He recently unveiled his biggest and most important sculpture, Nawa, which features the same blown-up metal technology that inspired the Rado True Face. Oskar runs his own design studio, Zieta Prozessdesign, and works in the parallel spheres of science, architecture, furniture design and art.
