A small clockwork factory called the Schlup and Company was established in Lengnau, in Switzerland by three hardworking brothers- Fritz, Ernst and Werner. Initially, the factory manufactured watch movements only. Gradually, propelled by the rapid advance of technology, the factory marketed its first line of watches in 1957, under the brand name ‘Rado’. This is how the family business was transformed into Rado Uhren A.G. In 1968, the ASUAG acquired the company. A few years later, the ASUAG became a part of the SMH Group.
Rado based itself upon a foundation on technological improvements. They revolutionised the traditional industry by introducing into the arena of watchmaking materials like ceramics, hardmetal, lanthanum and sapphire crystal. In 1962, the company launched the world’s first range of scratch proof watches, the Rado DiaStar. 2004 saw the company being awarded the credit for having manufactured the V10K, the hardest watch on earth. Rado’s tradition of innovating technology thus still persists, as the brand gains more popularity with its outstanding creations.
A unique design crafted to satiate indefatigable tastes, this wrist watch model R22850713 from the Coupole collection for women is a representative combination of class and comfort. The large circular black dial lends a contemporary appearance to this piece. 66 diamonds are encrusted as hour markers, spelling sheer luxury, while the rose-gold tone hands set an elegant contrast against the dial. Scratch-proof sapphire glass ensures a prolongation of its dazzling appearance.
The tapering stainless steel bracelet has alternating PVD coated rose gold links. A fine polish enhances the sophistication. Secured by a push-button enabled clasp, the bracelet is both light and durable.
As is usual with Rado, this Coupole watch is endowed with various features. Employing the Swiss made quartz technology, it provides accurate time updates. Accentuating the package is the water resistance rating of 5 bars.
