The Rado Watch Co. history begins in 1917 in Lengnau, a small quaint Swiss town, when Fritz, Ernst, and Werner Schlupp siblings open the Schlupp & Company clockworks factory. In 1957, forty years later, it evolves into Rado Uhren A.G., and the first Rado Watches collection makes its debut. This proves to be the beginning of an exceptional story of achievement and success.
Rado Watches has continued to fascinate serious watch enthusiasts all across the world with its inventive and groundbreaking designs. They have successfully captured watch lovers attentions with masterful technological advances combined with a distinctive sleek aesthetic that became the Rado Watches trademark. In 1962, they introduced the first watch that was scratch proof, the Diastar, and followed that up with a succession of innovative ideas.
Rado Watches varies greatly from the traditional Swiss watch making company in its pioneering use of high tech materials such as ceramics, sapphire crystal, lanthanum, and hard metal. This innovative use of nontraditional materials in watch design has become a significant brand identifier for Rado Watches worldwide. The feather in their cap has been the introduction, in 2004, of the Rado V10K, which the Guinness Book of World Records has named the hardest watch on Earth. Coated in high tech industrial grade diamonds, with a hardness measuring 10,000 Vickers, it sensationalized the world of watches. The combination of inspirational design, extreme durability, and precision timekeeping has kept Rado Watches in the forefront of the watch industry and continually held their imagination.
Aside from their use of premium and exotic materials, Rado Watches has been awarded many times for their unique and original designs. They have been recognized globally and been the recipient of many international design awards since the 1990’s.
