(Dubai, UAE – April 12, 2017) : The iconic Rado Ceramica has been honoured with the 2017 Red Dot Product Design award, proving yet again the brand's mastery of cutting-edge design and materials.

Swiss watchmaker Rado made waves in the design world last year with the relaunch of its one-of-a-kind Ceramica collection. In a collaboration with renowned industrial designer Konstantin Grcic, the brand updated its bold geometric timepiece with a contemporary look for the new generation. Now with these latest design accolades from Red Dot, the new Ceramica joins Rado's extensive array of award-winning timepieces. 

Contemporary cool
Limited to just 701 pieces, Konstantin Grcic's award-winning signature model stands out not only because of its velvety sandblasted finish, but also thanks to the creative use of typography on the dial. “In my opinion, the matt finish brings out the form of the watch much stronger,” says Grcic. “The design of the dials is bold and legible. I took inspiration from pilot watches – I like them for their straightforward, clear graphics.”

As the name suggests, the Ceramica is crafted from high-tech ceramic, a material favoured among many high-end watchmakers for its exceptional properties. Advances in technology, together with Grcic's vision, have given rise to this masterful high-tech ceramic collection, which finds expression in the twenty models that now make up the new Ceramica family. The latest additions to the Ceramica collection feature – for the first time ever – automatic movements and grey high-tech ceramic.
