To celebrate Le Corbusier's colour system and to demonstrate its unique ability to create colourful high-tech ceramic watches, RADO has produced a lively and powerful collection of nine True Thinline watches in Le Corbusier colours.
Charles-Edouard Jeanneret-Gris, Le Corbusier for short, was born on October 6 1887 in La Chaux-de-Fonds, Switzerland. La Chaux-de-Fonds has long been the world centre of the watchmaking industry, is a UNESCO World Heritage Site and is now one of the most famous watchmaking cities in Switzerland, alongside Bienne/Biel and Le Locle. As the son of an engraver and enameller of clocks and a musician, Le Corbusier's connection to clocks and watches was already present in his early age – clocks in Le Corbusier colours are therefore a perfect symbiosis.
The RADO collection consists of high-tech ceramic watches. The True Thinline Les CouleursTM Le Corbusier collection celebrates the work of the pioneering and visionary architect. RADO, as a "master of materials", has used a more than 30-year long experience with high-tech ceramics to create watches in nine colors of Architectural Polychromy.
