Swiss watchmaker  has collaborated with to expand its True Thinline family of timepieces. Recognized for her bold experimentations with texture, pattern, and luxurious materials, the award-winning British designer infused the 1,001-piece True Thinline Studs collection with motifs that define her own oeuvre of furnishings. For example, hopscotch-patterned gold studs offset a grained black leather strap—a nod to her Studs coffee table that features like-minded brass detailing around the rim. Such contrasts continue in the marquetry-patterned dial, where 12 pieces of fused metal backdrop Rado’s gilded logo. A golden dial ring and crown set within the matte-black high-tech ceramic monobloc case packs a further visual punch. See more images of the timepiece below.
