Rado has unveiled a range of nine True Thinline models as a part of a tribute to the legendary Bauhaus architect and designer Le Corbusier. Each made entirely from zirconium oxide ceramic, they come in a range of colours derived from Le Corbusier's "Architectural Polychromy" palette.

Drawn up firstly in 1931, with an additional 20 colours added in 1959, the architectural polychromy palette consists of 63 colours that "help to create space and depth as well as having a profound physiological and psychological impact on the viewer" (happily they also make excellent colour choices for accessorising your summer wardrobe). The 63 colours are arranged into nine collections, with each collection represented by one watch.

The watches measure 39mm in diameter, are water-resistant to 30m and use quartz movements. Each comes in a limited edition of 999 pieces and costs £1,750.
