'Tis the season for holiday magic

‘Tis the season for holiday magic and the perfect time to . . . feel the moment!
There is a bit of magic in every holiday season. Think about it. Each one offers a special kind of time travel (and we think a lot about time at Rado). From early December, wherever we go and whatever we do, we are surrounded by sights and sounds that take us back through the years. We remember how, as children, we waited eagerly for the chance to tear open our presents. Regardless of how we celebrated these annual traditions in our own homes, there were  experiences we shared: each minute we waited felt like a day and every hour seemed like a lifetime. It was magical for the grownups as well: somehow, the hustle and bustle and the panic of last-minute planning were finally rewarded by the warmth of time spent with family and friends, the sharing of holiday memories, and some rare and welcome moments of peace.

Rado wants to offer its own bit of seasonal magic to you and to that certain someone in your life. No one can give back the time that’s passed, but two exquisite wristwatches will keep track of it beautifully. Who should think of you – with love – not only when these gifts are opened but with each glance at the time, now and for many years to come? And what could make this gift of time even more memorable? Rado will be happy – at no additional cost – to add a personalized engraving to the case back. And in keeping with the holiday spirit, we’ll also giftwrap the watch and add a card with your own message.

Rado Centrix
The Centrix was warmly embraced when Rado introduced it in 2010 and it has remained a favourite among the brand’s aficionados. It has evolved since that first launch and the new models continue to highlight the materials, the production technology, and the aesthetics that have always defined the brand. This 30.5 mm interpretation features a polished rose-gold-coloured PVD-coated stainless steel case along with highlights in a dark brown that recalls the rich Swiss chocolate we often savour as we celebrate the holidays. The view through the pleasingly rounded sapphire crystal is mesmerizing: a brown facetted lacquer dial delivers a striking 3D effect whose opulence is enhanced by the 12 contrasting Top Wesselton diamonds that mark each hour. The rose-gold-coloured central hour, minute, and seconds hands complete a picture of elegance and warmth. A pair of details sure to appeal to Rado fans: the rose-gold-coloured moving anchor symbol and the crown’s anchor marking are more conspicuous thanks to laser-enhanced detailing. This Rado Centrix is presented on a bracelet crafted from polished rose-gold coloured PVD-coated stainless steel and brown high-tech ceramic middle links. 
The beating heart of the Rado Centrix is a calibre R582 automatic movement fitted with an antimagnetic Nivarox™ hairspring, which delivers a power reserve of 48 hours. It is water resistant to 5 bar (50 metres).

Captain Cook High-Tech Ceramic Skeleton
The Captain Cook High-Tech Ceramic Skeleton is the perfect gift for anyone on your holiday shopping list who is worthy of a muscular watch that delivers drama and character in equal parts. As its name suggests, it has an intriguing skeleton design that shows the innovative calibre R808 to full advantage. The movement, equipped with an antimagnetic and highly reliable Nivachron™ hairspring, has been fully tested in five positions rather than the usual three, and provides 80 hours of power reserve. This new Captain Cook’s plasma high-tech ceramic case – Rado at its best and purest – makes a powerful aesthetic impact with materials that have already proven themselves to be incredibly robust and equal to the most demanding lifestyle. It is presented on a matching plasma high-tech ceramic bracelet with a row of lighter-shade polished plasma high-tech ceramic links down the centre. The matt-finish plasma monobloc case is
framed by a circular-brushed plasma high-tech ceramic bezel insert that matches the tones of the case and the outer bracelet links. Inside the rotating bezel, a rose-gold-coloured index ring adds contrast, next to the familiar Captain Cook box-shaped sapphire crystal with anti-reflective coating on both faces. The glass, with its lightly smoked tint, adds to the intrigue of the watch. The titanium case back is also fitted with a sapphire crystal, for a clear and unobstructed view of the movement and core watch components. The screw-down crown sports the usual Rado brand anchor symbol and, of course, there is also a rose-gold-coloured Rado moving-anchor symbol presented on the dial against a synthetic ruby backplate.

The gift-giving season will be the perfect opportunity to surprise someone with this flagship watch that demonstrates, convincingly, that the Master of Materials is working – now more than ever – at the very peak of its powers.

Rado wishes you and those close to you a happy and magical holiday season and a new year filled with joy, health, love and peace! .
