A Personal Review Of Rado Watches

Rado watches have cornered the niche for upmarket watches that are different from more traditional Swiss watches. Rado watches stand out from other watches because of Rado’s use of new, modern materials and striking design. Rado were the first to produce the world’s first truly scratch-proof watch; the DiaStar.

If you’re looking for a top rated, beautiful watch that’s a little different to other comparable watches, then you should take a look at the current collection of Rado watches. I love Rado watches because of the unusual, modern materials that are used. Rado watches are made from materials such as scratch proof ceramic, caoutchouc and Hard Metal.

Rado Ceramica has become a design classic. The glass is made from sapphire and the case, crown and bracelet are made from a high-tech, scratch-proof ceramic. The movement is an ultra-precise Swiss movement in either an analog or digital display. It comes in only two colours; black or platinum colour. The case and bracelet are very sleek, with the bracelet composed of simple rectangular links. This watch, like most Rado watches, looks very minimalist, with a much understated style.

The Rado Original looks more like a traditional divers/sport watch. It has a very simple design. Unlike other brands the bezel is smooth, the face is uncluttered and simple and bracelet is simple. Its style is so simple; it almost looks like a ladies watch. In fact, both men and women would feel comfortable wearing a Rado Original. Now for the technical information: the Rado Original comes with Hard Metal bezel, facetted sapphire crystal, screw-down crown with crown protection, screw-down steel case back with the Rado’s stamped ‘Seahorses’ medallion, 100 meters / 333 ft. water resistant. There is an automatic movement. The Rado Original watch is the way diver’s watches used to be: simple, before the competition between watch manufacturers turned these utility watches into the testosterone lumps of metal they are today. I love this watch; in fact, I love it so much I bought one.

The Rado Original DiaStar revolutionized watches. It was the world’s fist scratch-proof watch. The Rado DiaStar still has the looks of a very contemporary watch; it’s hard to believe the watch was first designed over forty years ago!

The Rado Cerix is a very elegant ladies watch. The round face contrasts and yet complements the rhomboid shape of the casing. The whole piece is beautifully finished with diagonally displaced bracelet connecting elements. The Rado Cerix is made from a combination of high-tech ceramics and sapphire crystal. I particularly like the unusual offset position of the crown. The Rado Cerix ladies watch comes in three models, one with a plane face, one with 6 diamonds located between the 3 o’clock and 6 o’clock position, and one with diamonds completely encircling the watch face. The Rado Cerix is a beautiful ladies watch for those who can afford it.

A review of Rado watches can’t overlook the Rado V10K watch. The Rado V10K has to be one of the best wristwatches you can buy. For those looking for a watch that stands at the forefront of technology, the Rado V10K stands out by a mile. The V10K is the most scratch proof watch ever made. The Rado V10K is made from ‘hard diamond’. V10K actually stands for Vickers 10,000 – Vickers being a measure of hardness, with the scale going from 0 to 10,000; the ultimate value that only diamonds can attain; Rado used this as a benchmark when developing the hardest watch in the world. Let’s put this into perspective; stainless steel, which is mainly used in sports watches, only has a Vickers value of 200; only diamonds can scratch the surface of a Rado V10K. The case of the Rado V10K is made from high-tech Diamond and the bracelet is made from caoutchouc and available in black, orange, red or blue. The Rado V10K is a watch I really want to buy; perhaps one day.

There are many other collections available from Rado watches: the Sintra, Integral, Crysma, Coupole and others. All Rado watches are high quality timepieces. They are highly desired by collectors and regular buyers alike. If you’re looking for a top rated wristwatch that stands out from the crowd, then a Rado wristwatch is one you should definitely consider.
