Rado have dedicated many years towards the development and research of their innovative materials. Alongside this, the company who has become renowned for their beautiful quartz powered timepieces, are also equipping many of their watches with an automatic movement. These ETA movements are often a simple three handed and date display development, yet the simplicity of these expertly crafted engines is one reason alone why Rado watches have become so popular for those in search of something a little more than a basic quartz timepiece, whilst wanting to stick to a luxury wristwatch that is priced mid-range.
Many automatic Rado watches feature in the Centrix collection, the Coupole Classic collection and the True line. Some wristwatches feature a unique open heart design which exposes elements of the automatic movement through the surface of the dial. The design makes for an alternative to the familiar sapphire crystal exhibition caseback often associated with high-end luxury automatic wristwatches. The feature allows the wearer a chance to admire all the finest elements of the movement through the front of the face, whilst being able to reference the time simultaneously. The Rado Coupole Classic Steel & Black Ceramic Men’s watch features a sleek black dial accompanied by silver coloured dauphine-shaped hands which are powered around the dial via an impeccable automatic movement. The Rado lettering stands proudly at the top of the dial, dressed against a black guilloche textured dial – its name associated with the manufacture of reliable automatic movements and ground-breaking materials. The watch is finished on a stainless steel and black high tech ceramic link bracelet for a jewellery-like finish against the skin – the ultimate way to look sleek and smart no matter what the occasion.
Watches from the Ceramica collection are all ceramic, from the case to the entire bracelet. They provide great protection to their internally fitted automatic movements thanks to their tough and durable cases with scratch resistant properties that will ensure the watch retains its good looks for years and years to come. The fact that Rado have gone to the trouble of producing an automatic movement for the Ceramica range shows their dedication towards creating a timepiece that will appeal to both male and female audiences who like the authenticity and craftsmanship behind an automatic watch.
The Automatic Rado Centrix 28mm Black Guilloche Dial from our collection here at Berry’s, is an automatic watch for the sophisticated lady. The stainless steel links of the bracelet have received a brushed finish to create a parred down, understated design for wearing all day, every day. The classic-looking timepiece offers a 38 hour power reserve thanks to an expertly crafted automatic movement sitting at the centre of a 30 meter water resistant steel housing.
The Rado Diamaster XL Plasma High Tech watch featuring a silver dial and an authentic brown leather strap, is equipped with an automatic movement that offers an impressive 40 hour power reserve. With polished rose gold coloured hands and indexes and a comfortable brown leather strap, the watch looks slightly vintage-inspired – a rare look from Rado’s contemporary-natured collections. The ETA movement sitting inside this plasm high tech ceramic case is protected from water damage, heat damage and the everyday knocks and bumps associated with wearing a wristwatch, thanks to the robust nature of this innovative material.
