The Retro Rado Funkadelic HyperChrome 1616

Published by:

rado hyperchrome 1616

When I think Rado, I immediately visualise sleek, thin cases, instantly recognisable thanks to the opalescent sheen of ceramic. Well, the 1616 is none of those things, but that doesn’t mean it’s not Rado to the core.

You don’t have to be an expert to realise that the 1616 is inspired by the ’70s, an era where the prevailing attitude to watch design was the bigger and bolder, the better. Its muse is a watch called the Cape Horn, which had a distinctive shape with the same sort of rounded-off square case that we see here. Rado has taken this silhouette and run with it, bumping up the size to a highly polished 46mm that will not go unnoticed on your wrist. You’d be forgiven for thinking it’s polished steel but in fact it’s a specially treated titanium which makes it almost as scratch-resistant as ceramic. So even on this ostensibly heritage-styled piece, Rado have managed to work some of the hi-tech material magic they’re famous for. read more

Rado D-Star Plasma Watch Review

Published by:

Rado-D-Star-Watches

Rado includes a lengthy good reputation for materials innovation within their watches, most notoriously with super-hard ceramics that hold one finish. For review is one thing entirely a new comer to me, a plasma-implanted ceramic watch that appears like stainless. Let us have a look.

This watch’s title may be the Rado D-Star Gents L, Plasma Ceramic. The model reference number is 658.0760.3.010. They call the movement a quality 658, but we title it ETA 2824-2. It’s 144g around the bracelet, water-resistant to 100m regardless of the non-screw down crown. The situation is 40.8mm by 11.4 to the top domed azure very, and 46.9mm carry to carry. The integrated bracelet tapers from 23.4mm lower to 21. and it is 3mm thick, having a push button clasp and titanium folding bits. read more
