The Sleek and Innovative Design of the Rado HyperChrome Collection


Rado, a watchmaking brand founded in 1917 in Switzerland, has grown from its humble beginnings into one of the largest watch movement producers in the world. The company’s focus on innovation has catapulted it to stardom – and allowed it to become a titan of the industry.

The Rado Hypherchrome collection showcases this passion for innovation beautifully, as the brand is known as the Master of Materials for a reason.

Watchmaker Rado

The Rado trademark was only registered in 1928 and, for the first decades of operation, the company focused on creating watch movements for other brands. The first Rado timepieces were produced and launched in the 1950s and, by the end of this decade, the company became an international brand with a presence in dozens of countries.

Rado is well-known for using ceramics, water-resistant technologies and other high-tech materials, and has also received several awards for its unique aesthetics.

Before other watchmaking brands began using unconventional materials, Rado had already mastered them. Their CeramosTM material, for example, is lightweight and sturdy and allows the pieces to last for a very long time while never becoming uncomfortable on the wrist. Rado was using materials like carbide and sapphire glass in the 60s, when other companies were choosing to remain more traditional.

The company is also responsible for creating a high-tech diamond, a material made from cutting-edge nanotechnology and as hard as natural diamonds. It can even achieve a hardness of 10,000 Vickers.

Whether you’re going to the office, exploring the wilderness or taking it for a spin on a motorbike, you can rest assured that Rado watches, including those in the HyperChrome collection, are durable and reliable companions for your everyday adventures.

Rado HyperChrome Collection

One of Rado’s most popular collections, the HyperChrome range is also one of the most diverse. It’s a sporty chic collection that also has elegant and delicate-looking watches. Perfect for both men and women – as well as for all tastes and preferences – the HyperChrome collection is inspired by vintage models but there’s nothing outdated about them.

In fact, Rado is able to manufacture watches that are sleek, contemporary and dynamic. The collection comes with both quartz and automatic movements, as well as many options to choose from when it comes to colours, styles and sizes.

Each watch in the collection can be used with the attire of your choice, as they can complement any wardrobe choice, from a sporty look to business casual and evening wear.

Materials used in the collection include high-tech ceramics. Rado has been using this material for over thirty years, so it’s fair to say the watchmaker has truly mastered it – the high-tech ceramics are lightweight and hypoallergenic and will ensure your watch lasts a generation and more.

CeramosTM is another material found in this family of watches. It seamlessly blends in high-tech ceramic and metal, and you can choose from a range of options as well, be it yellow or rose gold.

Another unique material is Hardmetal, which Rado has been using since the 60s and the introduction of the iconic DiaStar 1. This material offers scratch-resistance and robustness to the watches, as it’s more durable than platinum, gold and steel.

Take a look at some examples of what makes Rado HyperChrome so special:

Rado HyperChrome Chronograph 44.9mm Watch

A perfect representation of the Rado’s modern and sophisticated pieces. This chronograph looks great no matter where you are and where you go, and you can also be confident that the stainless steel of the bracelet and the 49.9mm case, combined with the scratch-resistant sapphire crystal, will ensure its longevity.

The black dial is a beautiful contrast to the stainless steel, and the rose gold ceramic bezel (complete with tachymeter scale) adds another touch of sophistication to the piece. You can also find rose gold baton hour markers and hands coated with Super-LumiNova for improved visibility. The chronograph is powered by a quartz movement and is water resistant up to 100 metres.

The Rado HyperChrome Chronograph 44.9mm watch can be purchased from Banks Lyon for £1,370 or from £20.55 per month at 0% finance.

Rado HyperChrome Automatic 42mm Watch

A unique watch made from unconventional materials, as is expected of Rado. This automatic piece is sporty and elegant and made from high-tech ceramic; this means it’s sturdy and reliable as well. The black dial has rose gold baton hour markers and hands and also comes with a date window in the 3 o’clock position.

The 42mm bracelet is made from steel and PVD, as well as ceramic, and this blend of materials adds to the comfort of the watch. The self-winding automatic movement is protected with sapphire crystal, and the model is also water-resistant up to 50 metres. A subtle design that manages to be bold at the same time.

You can buy this Rado HyperChrome Automatic 42mm watch for £2,190 or from £32.85 per month at 0% finance at Banks Lyon.
