We’re always looking for an opportunity to talk about timepieces– whether made by renowned Swiss Brands who’ve been in the industry for decades and even centuries in some cases, or made by passionate independent watchmakers. It’s our passion, devotion and enthusiasm that makes our horological heart tick faster.

About Rado Watches

+
Rado is a high-end Swiss watch manufacturing company, known for producing avant-garde timepieces. It was founded by Ernst and Werner Schlup in 1917. The brand has a reputation of making watches with unusual materials, giving Rado watches their distinct look and style. Rado uses a variety of materials ranging from lanthanum, high-tech ceramics, hard metal, and titanium carbide (or strengthened high tech ceramic carbide as Rado calls it). The first watch to put Rado on the global watchmaking map was the DiaStar in 1962.

Following a long tradition of innovations and extensive research, Rado watches are exquisite and come with an essence of unorthodox aesthetics meant to last a lifetime. Rado's high-tech ceramic has played a crucial role in the success of watches that Rado has produced in the last few decades. It first made appearance in 1990 in the form of the Rado Ceramica. The technology was a work of master craftsmanship as well as a sign of excellent R&D. High-tech ceramics are especially known for their black lustre that gives off a metallic vibe. The material is hypoallergenic as well, making it suitable for all skin types and allowing it to blend with a variety of dyes to produce an ever-expanding library of coloured wristwatches with a gentle approach towards style and glamour.

Rado watches for men
 and women are available in a variety of styles in India. With its headquarters in Lengnau, Switzerland, the brand is responsible for the manufacturing and distribution of more than half a million watches worldwide every year, with a strength of 470 employees in total.

Some impressive Rado watches in India are:

Rado Centrix
Rado True 
Rado Hyperchrome 
Rado Original

Rado True

Rado is not a new name in the luxury watchmaking industry. It was founded in 1917 and ever since then all it has done is break walls and boundaries in high-end horology. The Swiss watchmaker is a remarkable example of what it takes to be a brand in one of the most flamboyant industries in the whole world. The Rado True does exactly that and then some more. The watch is sleek, marvelously designed, and is exceptionally built.

Rado Centrix

Rado is a specialist in avant-garde watches. As a matter of fact, before names like Big Bang and Excalibur even made it to the markets, it was Rado that took care of most of the innovation and research in the industry. The Rado Centrix fits this picture perfectly. The collection is a front runner for the Swiss brand in the sense it perfectly encapsulates what Rado really stands for.

Rado Ceramica

Ever heard of the ceramic revolution in luxury watches? Rado was a pioneer in that movement and was a key player that played an important role in the whole process of introducing all-ceramic watches in the mainstream industry. The Rado Ceramica is one of the earlies watches that the brand released in the markets and surprisingly the collection is still going strong even after years of its initial launch.

Rado Coupole

The Coupole collection is bit different from what Rado is usually known for. Nonetheless, the collection is an absolute banger in the sense that it takes the best elements of a typical Rado watch and puts them together in the form of a modern dress watch. The timepieces in this series are suave, stylish, and exude a degree of class that makes you fall in love with them. The Rado Coupole is a worthy member of the watchmaker’s elaborate arsenal of watches and its presence in the brand catalogue is more than justified.

Rado DiaMaster

Rado made its way to real fame back when it came up with the DiaStar, the world’s true scratch proof timepiece. The watch made waves in the industry and put Rado on the helm as the most innovative watchmaker of that decade. Thus began the rein of Rado watches. In 2013, the Swiss watchmaker repeated this by launching the Rado DiaMaster. The watches in the collection use high-tech ceramics and displays signature Rado design codes such as minimalism and class.

Rado Florence

The Rado Florence is yet another watch that takes the Rado name and puts it to good use. The timepiece is stylish, suave, classy, and most importantly, it stay true to the original Rado design language. Rado, as a watchmaker, has been a symbol for minimalism and sumptuousness, and that is exactly what the Florence collection does. The watches’ playfulness with curves, precious metals, and simplicity makes them even more interesting.

Rado Hyperchrome

Since the very beginning, Rado has never been one to be known for high-precision chronographs. The brand has always associated itself with the dressier side of the spectrum. But this changed when the Rado Hyperchrome made it to the markets. Today, the timepiece is a symbol for tough build, sturdiness, precision, and functionality. Rado really outdid itself with this watch and it clearly show how. The Hyperchrome is a master stroke from the watchmaker in the sense that it successfully combines the best of both the world.

Rado Integral

For over a century now, Rado has been in our lives and in the industry that we so revere. The brand has proven its worth and integrity but delivering nothing but exceptional watches that not only do justice to the art of fine watchmaking but also to the buyers who decide to invest in it. The Rado Integral is a worthy mention here. The watch thrives in simplicity and does an amazing job at putting Rado’s core values and principles to use.

Rado True Thinline

The True collection is one of the flagships that the Swiss watchmaker so proudly boasts of. The series entails an array of watches that stay true to the typical Rado design language that brought the brand fame in the first place. The Rado True Thinline is a line of timepiece under the True collection. These are ultra-thin watches that take the grandeur of True timepieces to a whole new level.
