In 1917, three brothers Fritz, Ernst and Werner Schlup set up a small watch-movements manufacturing factory in Lengnau, Switzerland. In 1958, the factory released its first line of watches under the brand name Rado. The line was a runaway success and the name stuck. Rado became a part of the ASUAG group in 1968. Later, the SMH group, known since 1998 as the Swatch Group, acquired the ASUAG.
Rado’s emergence on to the arena of watch manufacturing was propelled by their belief in technology. Introducing the use of materials like hardmetal, ceramic, lanthanum and sapphire crystal in the watchmaking industry, Rado made innovation its speciality. In 1962, Rado surprised the world by manufacturing the Rado DiaStar, the first ever line of scratch proof watches. DiaStar continues to sell even today. In 2004, the Guinness Book of World Records toasted Rado’s success by recognizing the V10K as the hardest watch on earth.
Well-built and sturdy, the Rado R15966203 watch for men, belongs to the Rado D Star Chronograph collection. With a fixed stainless steel bezel enclosing the bright blue circular dial, the unusual colour contrasts create a smart appearance. Luminiscent silver tone stick hour indices and watch hands, enclosed in a 42mm case, accentuate the elegance of the form besides enhancing visibility in the dark. Minute markers are etched on the outer rim. Arabic numerals denoting 10, 20, 30, 40 and 50 minute positions occur on the outer most rim of the dial. Scratch proof sapphire crystal adds to the strapping quality of the watch.
The polished stainless steel bracelet adds to the finesse. Secured by a deployment clasp with a push button, the watch fits the wearer’s wrist in a comfortable hold.
As indicated by the name, the watch functions as a chronograph. Two sub-dials built onto the main dial record 30 minutes and 60 seconds at 3 and 9 o’clock positions respectively. A prominent date window occurs at the 6 o’ clock position. Swiss made automatic movement powers the watch which has a power reserve of up to 60 hours. It is also endowed with the feature of water resistancy till 200 meters underwater.
Rado timepieces are not only unique but are a work of art. The history of Rado goes back to 1917 when three brothers in a small Swiss town established a clock work company. It was in 1957 that the brand launched its first collection of watches for men. In 1962 Rado launched the world’s first scratch resistant watch. Today watch lovers throughout the world admire timepieces from this brand for its use of innovative materials and design.
Simplicity reigns with this streamlined, sleek and dynamic collection. The D Star is inspired by sharp looks and are mostly crafted with three breakthrough materials – Ceramos, High-tech ceramic and carbon diffused steel.
Several famous actors, sports person, and stalwarts in different fields have been associated with the brand. Julia Gorges, a German Tennis champion, with a bright future ahead of her, has undoubtedly proved, as Rado ambassador, that dreams can be become reality. Lisa Ray, an international model and actor, is elegant and stylish, befitting the brand. Renata Litvinova, is a Russian actor, director, and screenwriter. Her versatility and creativity put her in sync with the theme of the company. Another personality associated with Rado, is the Indian film-star, Hrithik Roshan.
