Rado Ceramica Automatic Watch Review
Swiss Rado is working to offer more products to fans of modern mechanical watches, and they may be inclined to think that the brand is characterized by a large amount of quartz and a modern aesthetic that has looked modern from the 1980s. One of the challenges of attracting more male watch lovers is to incorporate all the powerful visual DNA cultivated by the brand into something more modern. Rado Ceramica Automatic represents all of these and more about the brand, including Rado’s early role in using ceramics as a watch material. However, compared to most watches, Rado Ceramica is a refreshing “different” wearing experience for me, I mean in a very good way.
The Ceramica collection has been around since 1990, but it complements the aesthetics of the brand, especially in similar non-circular series, such as the previous Integral and soon Sintra. I believe that Ceramica aims to embody the brand’s minimalism, modernist style and the values used in ceramics. As we all know, Rado was the first to introduce Diastar’s “first scratch-resistant watch” ceramic watch made of tungsten carbide in 1962. Today, ceramic watches and ceramic watch parts (especially the borders) are everywhere – especially the brothers and sisters of the Rado Swatch Group, which raises doubts that Rado’s own expertise has helped brands such as Omega and Blancpain steal ceramic spotlights.
Rado launched the redesigned Ceramica in 2016 and introduced the Automatic model in 2017. The automatic version is thicker to accommodate mechanical movement and has a dial design different from quartz. The new model does look like an improvement to the upcoming series, and the design is more modern. More importantly, Rado Ceramica Automatic has gained some key features in design and execution.Franck Muller VANGUARD replica Watches price
Rado Ceramica is definitely quirky and “different” from traditional watch design, and of course it will be polarized. Most people will decide whether to pay attention to them. Therefore, Rado’s goal should be to satisfy those who are naturally attracted to this (or specific) design, rather than trying to make everyone happy. All of Rado’s quartz watches are equipped with glossy ceramics, and the brand believes that making women’s watches is another obstacle for men’s watches like Ceramica Automatic. There are ceramic models that are specifically targeted at women, but at least these automated versions are definitely for male consumers (even if some people may ridicule them as “unisex”).
In addition to the internal automatic movement, which is something that male watch enthusiasts disproportionately value, Rado does something to infuse some masculinity into the shape of a watch that is generally not associated with modern men’s watches. The first is the matte finish of ceramics, which is very successful in my opinion. Many times, I have seen photos of Rado watches look cool, but the results are too smooth because of my taste. Although dark black is almost plain, matte ceramics have a very soft texture to the skin and eyes, and it is easy to visually appreciate the almost organic contours of the case and bracelet.buy RICHARD MILLE RM 52-01 SKULL TOURBILLON MEN replica Watches
Another important part of Rado Ceramica is tailor-made for men. This means that a case measuring 30 mm wide, 41.7 mm high and 12.3 mm thick, although not so large, is larger than the female version and is fairly uniform for many male wrists. I said it’s a weird watch, this 30mm width is where Quirk#1 comes in. A major design feature defines the Ceramica series to be an almost uniform width that will hardly taper from the head to the bracelet. In this case, the watch’s bracelet is 25 mm below the wrist, which sometimes makes the watch head itself too small. All of this is subjective, I think it’s part of Ceramica DNA and gives the watch a certain uniqueness, but I think it may be more elegant if it is thinner.
Stick to the bracelet, Quirk#2 is related to the buckle. It is made of titanium and is functionally a butterfly variety, but has a short piece and a long piece. The problem here is that it sometimes causes some gaps – at least on my bones and angled wrists (seriously, if your wrist is more round than my wrist, it may not be a problem at all). If Rado wants to use an adjective of Ceramica, I think it is “smooth”. So having the bracelet hug and flowing with the wearer should be an important consideration, and I wonder if this can be done by internal cutting to solve the bracelet link’s button fit – just an idea. The buckles and wide bracelets were the things that started to bother me, but it no longer bothered me – it was part of the long-term commentary.
3 has a more objective nature, it is a tiny, small crown. This seems to belong to the ladies quartz watch, I think it should be simple to fix the later version. It’s so small, basically you need to use a person’s nails to grab it, and then it’s tough if it’s not impossible to manually play it fully – it’s something I like to do, even for automatic watches. . With the emergence of three quirks, we can move on, but I will first notice that although everything is worth noting, at least for me, no one is an absolute trade destroyer.wholesale Hublot Classic Fusion replica Watches
The width of the case may require the use of an ETA 2671 automatic movement with a diameter of only 17.2 mm. This was compared to a 25.6 mm normal ETA 2824. Otherwise, the 2671 shares many specifications with the familiar 2824, including 4Hz frequency and 38-hour power reserve, central seconds and date. 2671 is not necessarily a fancy sport, but it is at least a bit different from what we have seen before. Considering that Rado has experienced the hassle of making an automatic version of Ceramica, it’s too bad, they can’t include the monitor back cover to emphasize this. The rounded bulge on the bottom cover allows you to feel the actual size of the movement – about the equivalent of a dime. Interestingly, Rado’s sales staff couldn’t tell me what the “high-tech ceramics” printed on the bottom cover were.
No matter what the term, it is ceramic, so from the case to the entire strap is ceramic, and even a little crown. In addition to the beautiful texture I mentioned above, another cool feature of ceramics is that it can be adapted to the temperature of the skin almost immediately, thus improving the wearing comfort (if it is related to you, it is also hypoallergenic). Of course, the coolest thing about ceramics is that, except for sapphire crystals, it basically means you won’t see any scratches on your watch. Although, although it is not easy to happen, the famous Achilles ceramic heel is that it can actually be broken from a hard collision. I have seen broken ceramic watch bracelets, it is not beautiful, but such watches are not pretending to be used for G-Shocks, and should be taken care of under normal circumstances.best replica watches for women
We have many opportunities to discuss ceramics and their use as watchmaking materials, but you can get a deeper understanding of ceramics in this special article. Although the materials used to make ceramics are inexpensive, the process is expensive – so ceramics are considered to be “higher quality” materials than stainless steel and are generally more costly.
Rado Ceramica Automatic is like a shadow on the wrist, especially dark black. With its unconventional and apparently focused style, it got the right thing, many other great watches didn’t; although the hand and stick index was very thin, it was still very clear. This is due to the high contrast of the white and black dials, which give off a tiny blue color in the dark – although it is not as strong or particularly long lasting. The same legibility cannot be said to be a very small date window, but it is there when you need it – if you look very close – and make it more likely to conflict with the rest of the design. Also, don’t miss the small anchor above the logo, which swings like a rotor.
For all its quirks and unconventional look, Rado Ceramica was amazing at the end of the day. My favorite reason for Rado Ceramica is that it deviates from the wearing experience and personality of most watches I wear. It’s not just a “different” thing, but it’s very effective because it’s simple and performs very well. There is no way to make it extreme, but it really suits watch lovers who like Scandinavian minimalism, texture, durability and other ceramic characteristics that they like, and want to be low-key but not An ordinary thing.hot Greubel Forsey Quadruple Tourbillon replica Watches
