The Rado True Thinline Les Couleurs™ Le Corbusier pays tribute to the legendary artist Le Corbusier, whose impeccable works in design and architecture went on to inspire the Bauhaus movement in the early years of the 20th century.
In partnership with Les Couleurs Suisse, an organisation mandated by the Foundation Le Corbusier to license the great designer’s works, the Swiss watchmaking brand fuses Le Corbusier’s inspiring works into his collection of timepieces that showcase his works in Architectural polychromy, a colour system he created.
Fully coated in high tech ceramic with monobloc cases Rado is famously known for pioneering, the True Thinline Les Couleurs™ Le Corbusier features nine limited edition timepieces in nine polychromic colours for this luminous collection, separated into either The Palette of 1931 or The Palette of 1959.
Earth toned and modest colours – cream white, iron grey, slightly greyed English green, grey brown natural umber and pale sienna make up those from The Palette of 1931, whereas warmer and vibrant colours – spectacular ultramarine, sunshine yellow, luminous pink and powerful orange – colour in the remaining four watches of The Palette of 1959.
Each watch from the Rado True Thinline Les Couleurs™ Le Corbusier is limited to 999 pieces each, and every piece is made durable, water- and scratch-resistant, light and comfortable – all of which Rado’s quality ceramic materials are known for, fused with the modernism and minimalism the timepieces portray in honour of Le Corbusier’s timeless masterpiece.
