Rado Integral watches are renowned for their distinct linear design and their use of a metallised sapphire crystal case and bracelet within its crisp parallel lines. The Rado Integral was the first watch to be crafted from high tech ceramic. First produced in 1986, it has created a huge impact within the watch industry, both for its contemporary look and its use of cutting-edge technology. With a tidy geometric shape and a minimalist design, Rado Integral watches combine stainless steel elements with coloured ceramic to create a lightweight, incredibly robust and scratch resistant housing for either a quartz movement or an automatic engine. The collection is loved for its diverse range of men’s and women’s watch and its eye-catching bi-colour look.
The ceramic elements found in a Rado Integral watch are often white, black or a metallic shine. Rado’s use of alluring yellow gold PVD details are a great contrast against these ceramic colours, enhancing the Integral’s distinct rectangular shaped case. The reductionist design seen throughout this collection is a popular choice for the modern lady or gent. Some of the Jubile versions feature sparkling diamonds – an irresistible feature for many a lady who likes to add an extra layer of luxury and sparkle to her everyday look. Many of the gent’s Rado Integral watches come with a date feature at 6 o’clock, whilst in the ladies’ versions, this feature is absent.
Chronograph watches also belong to the Integral collection. Rado have built these popular designs in the same rectangular shaped case for a modern feel upon the wrist. Chronograph features in a case of this shape are very rarely seen, offering the gentleman a watch with a decidedly unique charm. Since the Rado Integral watch collection is mainly made up of quartz movements, the automatic versions are a particular special treat for the Rado collector. These designs, along with the rest of the collection of quartz timepieces, make up a collection of versatile, practical yet unusual-looking watches for all imaginable occasions.
The Rado Integral Diamonds Quartz L watch fuses purity with finesse. The edge-to-edge sapphire crystal glass creates a smooth surface to observe the time through and clean linearity on the bracelet. The pure black dial features four simple diamond dot indexes at 12, 3, 6 and 9 o’clock, whilst a date aperture rests just above the sixth hour. The polished back ceramic links are a beautiful accompaniment for the stainless steel links, which are seen in the case and crown. Silver coloured central hands are carved into straight batons, matching the shades seen in the “Rado” lettering which penetrate the deep black dial. As with so many watches, this Rado Integral timepiece makes the transition from a daytime wristwatch into a night time accessory effortlessly. Similarly, the Rado Integral Quartz Diamonds S watch offers the same level of attention to detail. The precision set precious diamonds seen quarterly around the dial are beguiling and charming. Built especially for the lady, the dial offers even more clarity and simplicity with no date feature at the usual 6 o’clock location– just a three handed design bordered by sumptuous chocolate brown high tech ceramic and elegant rose gold PVD stainless steel tones. The bi-colour bracelet continues these exquisite finishes across the wrist, securing with a deployment clasp which melts onto the wrist with effortlessness.
