Rado Watches logo

From day one, Rado has turned visions into concrete realities. Pushing the boundaries of material technology and continually introducing the unexpected to Swiss watchmaking, Rado has literally gone from strength to strength. In the words of the company’s founder, “If we can imagine it, we can make it. And if we can make it, we will.” Rado always has and always will stretch the limits of mind and matter to produce unique timepieces. All Rado watches are a fusion of technology, practicality, and design. The first impressive results of this successful combination were presented in 1962 with the Rado Original DiaStar, the world’s first scratch-resistant watch. Today, the seamless union of technology, practicality and design continues to be fuelled by courage and commitment to creating watches that stand the test of time. Rado gains its momentum from the power of research and innovation, audacity and intuition. Nothing gets in the way of Rado’s mission to discover, invent and innovate.

Technological Marvel

In the 1980s, the Rado pioneering spirit led to the use of high-tech ceramic in watchmaking. Previously used in spacecraft heat shields & racing cars, it was a significant milestone. [read more]
Rado also developed the ability to colour this resilient material and to mould it by injection, paving the way for even more innovative designs. And in 2002 the world’s hardest watch was unveiled. The Rado V10K, made using high-tech diamond has a hardness of 10,000 on the Vickers Scale.

high-tech ceramic

Only the best materials are approved to produce Rado watches. Hardness alone is not enough; innovation, durability and wearer comfort are just as important. In 1986 Rado pioneered the use of high-tech ceramic, a material which meets all of these desires. [read more]
Since then high-tech ceramic has played a pivotal role in Rado watches. Plasma high-tech ceramic gives a striking and mysterious metallic brilliance, in a platinum colour, without the use of any metal. Ceramos™ has a unique platinum steel look and is ideal for sharp and edgy designs.They are durable and extremely versatile; in shiny metallic and matt finishes of various colours shimmering smooth or ornate surfaces can be created. It is a lightweight material which adjusts quickly to skin temperature, offering unrivalled comfort levels when used in watch bracelets and cases. Incomparable timeless brilliance.

Scratch-resistance & durability

Rado high-tech ceramic and Sapphire Crystals have a very high level of scratch-resistance. The extreme hardness of Rado high-tech materials guarantees durability and brilliance. [read more]
Scratch-resistant means “capable of withstanding scratching that occurs with normal everyday use”.The Vickers scale is used to indicate hardness: the higher the value, the greater the resistance to scratches. Rado scratch-resistant materials commence at Vickers 1,200 – far higher than gold, steel or platinum. The top value of 10,000 is attributed only to natural diamonds and to the Rado high-tech diamond surface. For decades Rado had envisaged making watches from a material as hard as a natural diamond. As a result of scrupulous research and use of cutting-edge nanotechnology the Rado dream became a reality. With its uniquely resistant diamond surface the Rado V10K is certified as the world’s hardest watch. Rado watches are hard but not indestructible.
