Industrial designer Tej Chauhan reveals the science-fiction influences behind his special edition of Rado’s True Square watch in the latest exclusive video as part of Rado Design Week.
The British designer has created a vibrant twist on the Swiss watch brand’s True Square timepiece, employing bold uses of colour, graphics and texture.
Chauhan looked to science-fiction films such as 2001: A Space Odyssey, Blade Runner and Moon to develop the watch design.
“My influences come from typography, old sci-fi movies and popular culture,” Chauhan explained in the video.
“We wanted to strike a balance between something contemporary and something traditional.”
Produced in ceramic with a matt yellow finish, the watch face features an intricate display of silver concentric circles and indexes, as well as a small window fitted with a date indicator featuring a custom-designed font.
