GENERAL CATALOGUE 2012-2013


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 DiaStar, the world’s first scratch-resistant watch. In the 1980s, the Rado pioneering spirit led to the use of high-tech ceramic in watchmaking. Previously used in space craft heat shields and racing cars, it was a significant milestone. 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 hightech diamond has a hardness of 10,000 on the Vickers Scale. 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. Rooted in a heritage of proven performance, Rado has its eye clearly focused on the future. 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. The result is always extraordinary watch designs.


Rado materials: advanced technology perfect for design In search of eternal purity Since its founding, Rado has been driven by a dream: to create a watch with a surface of eternal purity. The brand has continually striven to turn this vision into reality. High-tech ceramic, the ultimate luxury material Pioneered by Rado in 1986, high-tech ceramic is a lightweight, scratch-resistant material. lt is also hypoallergenic and adjusts to the wearer’s skin temperature, making it extremely comfortable. CeramosTM , a new dimension in high-tech ceramic Ceramos TM is a titanium based high-tech ceramic and metallic alloy. It is light, adjusts quickly to skin temperature, and has a unique metal look which fits perfectly with the sharp, edgy designs produced by Rado. Hardmetal, revolution at the origin of the myth Rado revolutionised the watch industry in 1962 with the Rado DiaStar, the first watch made of hardmetal. Previously used for cutting and drilling tools, hardmetal has a very high level of scratch resistance and is more durable than gold, steel and platinum. Rado harnessed the power of hardmetal to create an iconic watch. Sapphire crystal, transparency at the service of design Rado uses sapphire crystal as a standard material in all its watches. Always innovative, Rado developed different shapes of crystal to fit in with its changing designs. High-tech diamond, a certified record Creating the hardest watch that ever existed, as pure and eternal as natural diamond, became a reality in 2002 with the Rado V10K, the first watch entirely protected by high-tech diamond. A genuine technological revolution in the service of aesthetic brilliance.

Andy Murray Britain’s number one tennis player, Andy Murray, currently ranked third in the world, stands out from the crowd with his distinctive playing style and unrivalled tactical intelligence. He is the reigning Olympic men’s singles Champion and current US Open Champion. Andy Murray set out on his path to tennis success at the age of three. Impressive milestones of his junior career included wins at the prestigious Orange Bowl and US Open Junior tournaments. His transition to professional status gave Britain its first teenager in the top 100 for 30 years. He has won 22 career ATP titles and in 2011 became only the seventh player since 1968 to reach the semi-finals of all four Grand Slam tournaments in one year. Like Andy Murray, Rado has celebrated numerous breakthroughs and world records, from the first scratch-resistant watch to the hardest timepiece. Andy Murray perfectly embodies this pioneering strength.

René Liu René Liu uses her voice to express her talent in two quite different ways – through singing and acting. She released successful solo albums soon after returning home from classical music studies at California State University. Her can-do attitude shapes everything she does and her 1994 acting debut led rapidly to a Best Actress Award at the Asia Pacific Movie Festival. Mirroring the Rado pioneering spirit, René Liu is the first Taiwanese actress to win best actress awards in both movie and TV productions. In 2003 she also became one of the very few Chinese actresses to be on the prestigious judging panel of the Venice Film Festival. “Life is time,” she declares.

Renata Litvinova Renata Litvinova dismisses the widely held belief that time is always working against us. “Time works for me and enriches me. I love all the changes, expectations, suffering, smiles, tears, love, encounters, departures and reunions that time brings.” Her passion for time finds expression in a “three-dimensional” film career, where she excels in the roles of director, screenwriter and performer. Seeing unconventionality as an asset rather than an obstacle, this Russian style icon shares the instinct-driven Rado approach.
