A couple of weeks ago, I caught up with the people from Rado when they came to Montreal to present their novelties. Of course the highlight of their new collection was the introduction of the chocolate brown high-tech ceramic watches with three models, the three-hands and date HyperChrome Automatic, the diamond bezel HyperChrome Automatic Limited Edition, and my favourite, the HyperChrome Automatic Chronograph. Really sweet — like a Swiss chocolate — watches that deserve a separate article, and at this time, I won’t go into more details. Then they pulled out the Coupole Classic… In the dim light of the steakhouse, its pure lines and vintage proportions, instantly made me curious to see it better, turn it around, touch it. As I was strapping it on, I learned that it has 80 hours of power reserve and it retails for $1,330 CAD! OK, that was it, I had to do a review of this piece, and the Rado rep was kind enough to let me keep it for a while. Rado as a brand is known for their ceramic watches, and having tried several of their high-tech ceramic models (see their reviews here, here and here) I got to the conclusion that I’m a big fan of this material. The comfort, the durability, and the sophisticated, almost magical look of ceramic is unique. To achieve all these advantages, ceramic is a more labour and cost intensive material which is, of course, reflected in the price of these watches. If ceramic is beyond your budget, you can approach Rado from a different angle, going for their stainless steel models, such as a Centrix steel, a Coupole, or a Coupole Classic, which are designed with the same aesthetic approach as the ceramic models: understated elegance , minimalist, someway bauhausish. Coupole in French means dome, or cupola, a name that fits perfectly the Rado Coupole Classic Automatic. Rounded lines and shapes are everywhere: the case, the domed crystal on the front, the dial, the hands, even the clasp on the strap is curved.
