The new model features the same stylish shape and athletic spirit of the original HyperChrome Match Point, but with an updated colour scheme and details. The blue dial is home to three subdials: a second counter, a chronograph minute counter, and a chronograph hour counter. In a nod to the points of the game, the second counter is marked at 00, 15 and 40, and the chronograph minute counter at 30. A net-like design on the chronograph hour counter adds an extra tennis-themed touch design of the hour counter.

The Match Point looks even sportier thanks to the tachymeter scale engraved around its polished bezel. Using the tachymeter and the red-tipped hand, you can calculate your speed based on travel time or your distance based on speed.

The monobloc case and bracelet are matt, with the high gloss middle links providing an eye-catching contrast. Just like other Rado high-tech ceramic timepieces, the HyperChrome Match Point is lightweight, scratch resistant, and hypoallergenic – ensuring that you can lift your trophy in comfort and style.

The elegant look of the timepiece is achieved by the unique warm metallic luster of its construction of plasma high-tech ceramics. The Monobloc case and the bracelet are matt and thus form a striking contrast with the high-gloss polished mid-links of the band.

Sporty shine

With the new HyperChrome Match Point, Rado's characteristic material - the plasma high-tech ceramics - is once again brought into the limelight. To achieve the unique metallic look of the material, finished white ceramic components are placed in a plasma oven. Thereupon, gases activated at 20,000°C. dissolve a reaction which gives the piece a unique metallic luster.

The resultant unique plasma tone looks like metal without containing any metal. All the advantages of high-tech ceramics are also maintained. Just like all other Rado timepieces made of high-tech ceramics, the HyperChrome Match Point is extremely light, scratch-resistant and hypoallergenic - perfect to stretch a trophy with style and style.
