Warranty Upgrade. Feel Anchored

We have good news for you: all new Rado watches now benefit from a 5-year International Warranty. At Rado we have always made watches that are built to last – not just for a few years, but for a lifetime. 

Master of Materials

Wonderful things can be said, quite justifiably, about the special, unmistakable feel of Rado High-Tech Ceramic, under human touch. 

The Art of Ceramic

The denomination "Master of Materials" did not happen by chance. It is the result of unrelenting research and development, backed by a courageous desire to experiment and imagine all things possible. 


As Rado's signature material, high-tech ceramic stands out among luxury watchmaking materials for its remarkable marriage of lightness and hardness. Learn more about the benefits and production of Rado's high-tech ceramic timepieces.

High-tech ceramic colours

Favoured by luxury watchmakers for its incredible marriage of hardness and lightness, Rado’s high-tech ceramic also offers the opportunity to make a unique style statement thanks to its range of seven captivating colours.


Imagine if you could take a piece of white high-tech ceramic and transform it, magically, into a gleaming watch case with a metallic glow. Now imagine you could do it without actually using any metal. Sounds impossible, but Rado didn’t just imagine it: we made it happen.
