The first TEB BNP Paribas Istanbul Open will be held from April 27 to May 3, 2015 at the clay court of GARANTİ KOZA stadium. RADO is proud to be a partner of the Istanbul Open since the start of the event and serves as the official timer for this new ATP World Tour.
The Istanbul Open is the first ATP World Tour ever held in Turkey. As the official timer, RADO will record the minutes and seconds of the game with a corner clock in the shape of the HyperChrome series. In the Swiss Radar hitting corner, fans will have the opportunity to test their own speed and compete with the masters in the game. During the Istanbul Open, Swiss radars will welcome guests from the VIP lounge in the GARANTİ KOZA stadium.
The Istanbul Open is a clay court event-this particular venue makes players happy and sad. RADO Swiss Radar chose to use the HyperChrome special series of this tennis-inspired masterpiece as the official watch for the game. The bright orange elements on the dial complement the clay court. The scale, hands and dial covered with a luminous coating (Super-LumiNova®) ensure that time is clearly legible in any light. This model is extremely dynamic and courageous. It is made of matte black high-tech ceramics that are not easy to wear, light and comfortable. After perfect sandblasting, it has a cooler look. A great match during the game.
Istanbul is located at the junction of Asia and Europe, and is known as one of the most fascinating ancient cities in the world. Visitors can not only stroll through the ancient Roman and Byzantine ruins with spectacular Bosphorus views, but also listen to the ancient gladiators fighting for honor in a clay court game, and enjoy a unique day.
RADO is a world-renowned brand, known for its innovative design and revolutionary use of materials, designed to create the world’s least wear-resistant watch. From the beginning of its establishment in Linno, Switzerland, Rado has always been a pioneering spirit. Today, it still adheres to the brand philosophy of ‘if you can imagine, you can create;
