Baselworld 2017: Rado Ceramica

Teaming up with renowned industrial designer Konstantin Grcic, Rado updated its well-known, starkly geometric timepiece with a contemporary new look for the current spirit of time. For Baselworld 2017 three new additions to the Ceramica family have arrived and are ready to make a bold impact on the wrist. I invite you to discover these watches with me …

These three new Ceramicas are ideal for fans of minimalism! 

Following the success of the two matt Ceramicas that were unveiled last year, now another model in matt black high-tech ceramic has been added to the collection. For a softer look that is no less visually compelling, two models in grey high-tech ceramic are also available. The polished grey version features the same Super-LumiNova indexes as its matt black counterpart, while the dial of the matt grey version boasts a vertically brushed finished and concave dots that function as indexes.

By the way: This collection marks the first time that automatic movements (= ETA 2671, automatic, 25 jewels, 3 hands, date at 6 o’clock) have been used in the Ceramica family. 

Rado pioneered the use of high-tech ceramic. Today seven high-tech ceramic colours – black, white, plasma, grey, brown, green and blue – are featured in Rado’s collections. The launch of the grey Ceramica marks the first time that this high-tech ceramic colour has been featured in the Ceramica family. 

The size of the case is 30.0 x 41.7 x 12.3 mm, it is waterproof up to 50 meters.
