High-Tech Rado Time

In the world of fashion and horology, numerous watchmakers have held claims of starting a fashion or a trend. For example, the popularity of large oversized wristwatches and chronographs is greatly attributed to designer Michael Kors introduction of oversized women’s timepieces and chronographs in the late 2000’s.

Yet,  TechnoMarine was one of the very first watchmakers to introduce women’s chronographs and  oversized timepieces almost a decade earlier in 2000.

Rado DiaStar

The J12 Ceramic watch introduced by renowned French fashion house Chanel in 2000  started the ceramic fashion watch trend, which continues to remain popular sixteen years later. Chanel however was not the first watchmaker to utilize ceramic in its watch cases and bracelet. Since 1986, Rado watches have been featuring high-tech ceramic material in their men’s and women’s watches.

Founded in 1917 in Lengnau, Switzerland as the Schlup & Co. Watch Factory, the brand originally produced watch movements for other watchmakers. In the 1950’s the company began to produce and sell their own watches under the Rado name.

In 1960 Rado introduced the DiaStar, the world’s first scratchproof watch featuring a blend of sapphire crystal and hard metal on the case and bracelet. The Rado Integral introduced in 1986, revolutionized the industry becoming the first watch to feature a high-ceramic bracelet.

The brand’s Sintra watch introduced in 1993 was the first timepiece to feature cermet, a titanium and ceramic material, while in 1998 Rado introduced the Ceramica collection, featuring cases and bracelets crafted in high-tech ceramic and featuring metallic colored finishes without the use of metal.

In addition to introducing ceramic material timepieces, Rado has also been in instrumental in the development of using tungsten carbide and titanium carbide watches in their collection.
