During that time, Radon collaborated with famous industrial designer Konstantin Grcic to feature more contemporary pieces.

The History Behind Rado Watches

Before Rado's rise to fame in the watchmaking industry, the Swiss company got its humble start in Lengnau, Switzerland in 1917. Back then, brothers Fritz, Ernst, and Werner Schulp built their watchmaking factory and named it The Schlup & Co. They eventually changed their company name to Rado after becoming one of the world's largest producers of watches following the end of World War II. 

In 1957, the company celebrated its 40th anniversary and the success of the Golden Horse collection. Rado then successfully marketed water-resistant pieces and made a household name as an international watchmaking brand. Later on, the launch of the Rado Ceramica collection in 1990 boosted the company’s fame with its revolutionary high-tech ceramic material. From then on, watch lovers admired the Swiss brand’s products that proved to stand against the test of time.
