Rado, the Swiss watchmaker known for its pioneering experimentation with high-tech materials, is also beloved by connoisseurs of minimalism for its less-is-more approach to watch design. The new DiaMaster Ceramos, available in a steel color as well as a rose gold lookalike, is the perfect embodiment of that style.
The pared-down models are made of a material called Ceramos. Composed of 90 percent high-tech ceramic and 10 percent metal alloy, the material is injected at high pressure into a precision mold before being sintered to achieve its final hardness.
Relying on its vast expertise working with ceramics and other newfangled alloys, Rado was able to perfect the metallic-looking sheen of the silver and rose gold styles, which come on black and brown leather straps, respectively. Endowed with a sleek, futuristic appeal, the 41 mm models are the ultimate expression of everything Rado has achieved in its 101 years as a brand: technological prowess coupled with stylistic simplicity.
