Rado's new HyperChrome Ultra Light may look incredibly simple, but its construction could not be more complex. The watchmaker combined three materials: silicon nitride ceramic, anodized aluminum, and hardened titanium. That case architecture makes for a watch that's incredibly rugged and light as a feather. Movement is an automatic ETA, which sits in a 43mm case and is matched with a NATO-style strap with leather loops and a hardened grade 5 titanium buckle.
