Whether you’re a tennis fan or otherwise, Rado’s new HyperChrome Matchpoint is a winner to be worn on and off the courts

The arenas of style and sports hit another sweet note as Rado launches the new HyperChrome Matchpoint timepiece that rides the trending athleisure wave on a high. Fresh off their double victory with the Ultra Light and Diamonds iteration of the series, the maison now enriches the tennis-inspired collection with the limited edition Matchpoint that follows the stylistic codes of its original model.

Crafted with the same sleek silhouette and athletic vibe, the latest HyperChrome wears an updated colour scheme in blue with its watch face decorated with three subdials. Equipped with a seconds counter at three o'clock, a chronograph minute indicator at nine and the chronograph hour neatly sandwiched between the two, the indices on these subdials reference the points of the game in tennis — a nod to its world-class competitive discipline —and observant folks will even notice a net-like pattern on the chronograph hour counter that adds an additional tennis-themed flair. Framed by a tachymetre scale engraved along its bezel, the entirety of timepiece is, of course, fabricated in Rado's signature plasma high-tech ceramic that gleams a polished shine deceptively reminiscent of metal, yet is utterly lightweight, scratch-resistant and hypoallergenic. With a 42-hour power reserve automatic movement and a bi-textured bracelet, as well as an exclusive inscription on the caseback to denote its numbered limited edition status, the Rado HyperChrome Matchpoint has got to be the all-occasion winning style to sport.
