Ultra Lightweight Watches

The Rado Hyperchrome Timepiece is Designed to Have a Barely There Wear

— April 1, 2016 — Fashion
The Hyperchrome timepiece designed by Swiss maker Rado offers an incredibly lightweight watch thanks to the specifically chosen metals used to construct the frame. The watch emphasizes a barely there feeling when worn that allows consumers to enjoy the watch for its design and aesthetic, without feeling the accessory bogging down their wrist.

Often times luxe watches are made with precious metals that weigh down the accessory, causing the timepiece to feel heavy or bulky. This can easily deter a consumer from wearing the watch, making the Hyperchrome an ideal timepiece to adorn on a daily basis. The watch is made from light minerals including titanium, anodized aluminium and nitride ceramic that give the watch its sleek, minimalistic and featherweight wear.
Trend Themes
1. Lightweight Watches - The use of lightweight materials to construct watches can offer consumers a more comfortable, barely there wear and presents opportunities for disruption in the watch industry.
2. Minimalistic Watch Design - The emphasis on minimalist watch design allows for sleek and unique designs that cater to consumers' desire for less cluttered accessories.
3. Everyday Luxury - Offering luxury watches that are designed for everyday wear presents an opportunity for disruptive innovation in the luxury watch market.
Industry Implications
1. Watch Industry - The watch industry can benefit from disruptive innovations that incorporate the use of lightweight materials and minimalistic design features.
2. Fashion Industry - The use of lightweight and uniquely designed watches can provide an opportunity for disruption in the fashion industry and offer new, trendy accessory options for consumers.
3. Luxury Goods Industry - The introduction of lightweight and minimalist luxury watches can disrupt the traditional definition of luxury in the luxury goods industry and appeal to consumers who value both style and comfort in their accessories.
