The Rado True Thinline Leaf is an elegant watch that combines the durability of ceramic with a very interesting combination of colors and textures. Rado is a leading innovator in ceramic watches and the True Thinline Leaf is perfect example of this. Being comprised of ceramic, the watch is both scratch-resistant and incredibly light. The rest of the watch is comprised of sandblasted titanium, with a few accent pieces being made of gold-colored PVD stainless steel. The strap of the watch features three-row polished green ceramic with a titanium folding clasp.

The ceramic construction of the True Thinline Leaf is an elegant feat, but the real focal point of the watch seems to be the gorgeous dial. The dial consists of green mother-of-pearl and features a leaf pattern printed on the underside. The leaf pattern becomes visible through the watch's face thanks to the translucency of the material selected. This translucency creates a gorgeous effect on the watch, as light changes the prominence of the leaf design.
