Stainless steel is the most common material used in the development of a luxury wristwatch, mainly for its desirability from a value point of view. Yet Rado is one of the very few manufacturers that are transforming the practical qualities of stainless steel to work in favour of their watches on an aesthetical level too. Despite stainless steel being used for its robustness and its solid, chunky feel on the wrist, it can be transformed with the addition of a precious metal or an exclusive material like Rado’s high tech ceramic, for example. By adding luxurious rose gold and yellow gold tones to a stainless steel Rado watch, the lady or gent can enjoy the feel of a classic watch material with enhanced qualities and a captivating modern allure.
Solid stainless steel Rado watches however, feature throughout the company’s collections. In tandem with a preference for classic, vintage inspired timepieces, Rado is honing into a whole new way of watch-wearing. Wristwatch lovers are not only looking for a timepiece that creates a statement on the wrist, but a practical tool that assists with everyday tasks. Rado watches are parallel with traditional watchmaking, since the manufacturing methods have been handed down the generations, but their use of cutting edge materials are distinctly futuristic.
Some Rado stainless steel watches use the material throughout the entire design. The case, the crown, the lugs and the bracelets are all crafted from stainless steel to create a robust and bold look on the wrist. Stainless steel also feels substantial on the wrist, so if you’re looking for a timepiece that not only looks chunky but feels significant upon the arm, then steel Rado watches are certainly a great place to start your search. The Rado Centrix 38mm watch with a white Roman numeral dial evokes a traditional feel on the arm, whilst inside the timepiece, Rado’s automatic movement is equipped with innovative technology to provide unbeatable precision. The white dial features blue steeled central hands and a date positioned at 3 o’clock for keeping on track of all those important dates throughout the year.
The Rado Hyperchrome 38.7mm watch with a blue dial and solid stainless steel link is a watch that looks classic on the wrist during the day and elegant by night. The silver coloured hour batons taper as they point in towards the centre of the dial, and the central hour, second and minute hands are precision cut into an eye-catching sword shape. Hyperchrome watches are defined by Rado as the “ultimate all day, every occasion timepiece” and it is thanks to models like this all-stainless steel design, that the collection has become so popular.
The Rado Coupole Classic 41mm watch with a white dial and elegant blue steeled hands is, as its namesake suggests, a classic timepiece for those gent’s wanting to look their best no matter what the occasion. Stainless steel has a unique ability to be able to smarten up any outfit in seconds, especially those equipped with a link bracelet as seen in this model.
