Today Iwill talk about the cool, conventional and cheap Rado HyperChrome 1616 replica watch that was unveiled at Baselworld 2016. Honestly, I tend to overlook some watches but certainly must not be for this kind but oh well, better late than never. By the way, this particular Rado replica watch has been inspired by the brand’s vintage Cape Horn collection back in the 60s.
The unique Rado HyperChrome 1616 replica watch is quite large, then you will like every bit of the HyperChrome. Moreover, the Rado HyperChrome 1616 comes in two models, one sporting titanium case while the other being black ceramic but they have the same stuff inside.
The Rado HyperChrome 1616 replica watch dial remains original. We see the same hands and the yellow golden-colored faceted indices. The classic minutes and seconds tracks are also present which give testament to the early 1970s designs. The hands and indices sport SuperLumiNova too. Now for a little animation, there is the anchor below 12 o’clock that sways. Since the dial design is pretty much original we also see the two-tone vertical date window at 6. It’s retro but I honestly I prefer a cleaner approach.
The Rado Mens Replica 46mm case feels large but at only 106 grams it feels lighter too. What I like here though is the toughness of both titanium and ceramic plus the bonus of handsome looks. Like its predecessor, the new lightweight Rado HyperChrome 1616 replica watch sports a cushion-shaped case with the addition of crown protector adding to the beefy appeal of the watch. The watch also gets slightly domed sapphire crystal compared to the original synthetic Hesalite crystal of the original Cape Horn.
So, what do you think?
