Editor’s Note: Watches & Wonders (formerly SIHH) has moved online and Baselworld 2020 is canceled, but that hasn’t stopped watch brands large and small from debuting their new wares. Stay on top of this year’s best new watch releases here.

There’s a healthy chance that when you think about ceramic watches, you think of Rado. After all, the Swiss watchmaker has been a leader in ceramic technology since the early 1960s, incorporating it in their Diastar series as early as 1962. The production of modern ceramic also allows for some pretty funky colors, such as the matte olive green of the new True Thinline Anima Automatic.

Ultra-lightweight and scratch-resistant, the True Thinline Anima is equipped with a mechanical ETA A31.L02 movement and a new, skeletonized dial. Designed within a monobloc (one-piece) case, its movement features anodized aluminum bridges and plates, reducing the overall weight of the watch and making for a cool viewing experience through the transparent dial. Even the movement’s calendar wheel is skeletonized.

Measuring 40mm in diameter, the True Thinline Anima has a titanium case back, box sapphire crystal, 30m of water resistance and a matching ceramic bracelet with 3-fold titanium clasp. A limited edition of 2,020 pieces, it’s available now for $3,000.
