Rado’s tradition is steeped in material research and cutting edge technology development. It therefore comes as no surprise that their collections host a number of innovative materials, many that are exclusive to the Swiss manufacturer alone. Their timepieces are beautiful and durable – qualities that don’t come easy in the world of watch manufacture. Rado has dedicated years of extensive work and experimentation towards their material work, creating timepieces that can offer more resistance to external factors, scratch resistance, incredible water resistance and impressive lightweight qualities for wearing hour upon hour on the wrist. For almost three decades now, Rado has been producing high tech ceramic and using it in some of their most popular watch collections. They are considered a work of art by many and reflect Rado’s finest craftsmanship to date. With a mixture of smooth metallic or matte finishes, Rado’s ceramic watches are combined with a variety of different coloured dials to showcase something rare and memorable on the wrist.
High tech ceramic Rado watches are beautifully lightweight on the wrist. Wear a watch made from this innovative material under the cuff of a suit shirt or create an impact when entering any room by wearing a ceramic Rado watch on a bare wrist to create an instant contemporary, sleek look. Having hypoallergenic properties, ceramic Rado watches are also a great choice for those with sensitive skin. The smooth and refined surface of the ceramic links which sit close to the skin have been designed so as to warm to the skin’s temperature quickly. The Rado Coupole Classic Steel and Black Ceramic ladies watch from our Rado ceramic collection here at Berry’s, demonstrates the perfect balance between modern aesthetics and robust qualities. The silvery lustre of the steel works beautifully with the polished black ceramic links running through the bi-colour bracelet. The watch presents the time on a black guilloche dial, bringing added depth and texture to the design.
Plasma high tech ceramic is another material that is used with confidence at Rado’s manufacturing facilities. Forged in an oven at high temperatures, gasses activated at twenty thousand degrees Celsius transform finished white ceramic into a metallic-looking material with an exquisite shine without compromising on its lightweight, scratch resistant or durable properties. The Rado True Plasma Ceramic 40mm men’s watch from our Rado Ceramics collection features a plasma ceramic index dial accompanied by polished hands and a legible date display dressed against a distinct white background. The plasma high tech ceramic case spans 40mm across the wrist and features a fixed bezel integrated with 50 meter water resistance.
Alternatively, Rado’s patented Ceramos material marries high tech ceramic with metal to create a lightweight, extremely hard and revolutionary watch. The exclusive material brings the lustre of a metallic finish to the wrist, combined with the desirable qualities of ceramic. Rado’s Ceramos is often combined with rose gold, platinum and yellow gold to bring a modern yet opulent feel to the wrist.
