Rado Ceramica: The little black watch
With its black case, black strap and black dial – the Rado Ceramica is a minimalist watch made for design lovers. It was first introduced in 1990 and both the material – innovative high-tech ceramic -– and the design were revolutionary at the time. The rectangular case is the same width as the link bracelet, which is also made of ceramic. The novel material and the color black, which is always popular with designers and fashion designers, transformed Rado Ceramica into a clear favorite for the avant-garde and it wasn't long before this watch became the figurehead of this Swiss watch manufacturer.
The modernization of the Rado Ceramica
Carefully modernized by the renowned industrial designer Konstantin Grcic, the classic has lost nothing of its charisma even after more than a quarter of a century. The case has become somewhat narrower and flatter, which makes the watch even more minimalistic and elegant.
The classic Rado Ceramica models are available in two sizes and their flat case houses a quartz movement. Rado has extended the line and now offers additional models that work with a mechanical movement and these are also available in high-tech gray ceramic, for the first time.
