RADO the DiaMaster RHW1 Limited Edition


Modern materials and a masterful movement for ultimate lightness

The ability to reinvent, constant innovation and pushing the boundaries to effect real change. If this is Rado, then the Rado DiaMaster RHW1 Limited Edition is the epitome of the brand.

The show-stopping stand out piece in a collection of pared-down design watches, the Rado DiaMaster RHW1 mixes the Rado business of high-tech materials with the pleasure of adding something new in the world of watchmaking - this time an unusual movement for a high-tech ceramic watch.

Chosen for being twice as light as standard ceramic, Si3N4 TiN is a form of high-tech ceramic composite that Rado has researched and developed in its latest quest for innovation. Made by heating the mixed powders at 1800 degrees Celsius in an over pressure atmosphere of nitrogen, it is known for its superior wear-resistance.

The ‘old bronze’ colour gives the watch case a rugged, lived-in appearance. This is a watch that seems to have a story or two to tell about where it has been.

The choice of leather for the strap adds to the windswept and mysterious appeal of this undeniably cool and manly timepiece.
Hard as nails, light as a feather

The materials may give this DiaMaster its look, but it is the movement that gives the watch its soul. Rado innovations are usually seen in the materials used for the outside of our watches – this DiaMaster also has a Rado innovation on the inside.

Aluminium movements were used in pocket watches in the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries because of their lightness. It was this past trend and focus on lightness that inspired Rado to use such a movement – the RHW1, which is exclusive to Rado – for the first time in an extremely light and high-tech wristwatch.

As ever, the Rado designers have given this limited edition a modern twist to create a watch that oozes 21st century style.

Rado: typically unconventional ideas lead to outstanding design.
