Rado Watch For Men Header

Buying a Rado Watch for men can be a very complex, yet exciting experience. It may sound easy to just choose a watch that you like, and then purchase, however, with Rado watches, there is so much to consider, and so many different styles to choose from, that it can become quite a complex process. A process that many customers say make the watch feel that bit more special!

Buying a watch should always be an experience, whether it is a Rado, Longines or any other watch, it should be more than just buying the first watch that you like the look of!

When buying a watch of the caliber that Rado is, it is so important to know you have chosen the perfect model. A Rado watch is a watch for life, so you will need to go through the process of narrowing down your requirements and preferences, in order to get closer to your final choice! Below we will take a look at some of the things that will be important for you to look at, and deliberate when shopping for your Rado watch. Whether it is your first time buying a Rado, or your tenth, these are still key things to keep in mind!

Materials

The Master of Materials‘. Rado are known as the master of materials thanks to their proficient and wide use of a range of different materials. From stainless steel, and sapphire crystal, to diamonds and high-tech ceramic! Material is a very important feature to consider when shopping for a watch, as each material has it’s own characteristics as well as style! You will have key features such as durability, weight and style to consider, as well as it’s potential allergen levels too.

The majority of people will know what they like, or at least what they are looking for. The two main options are a metal bracelet, or leather strap, with similar choices in each category too! This helps to narrow down your search well, but make sure to keep an open mind in case you do see something else!

Rado not only offer these choices, but they also offer a fantastic range of high-tech ceramic watches too, which again comes with it’s own benefits too. The style and fit are two of the most important things hear, when it comes to the bracelet/strap. Sometimes a metal bracelet won’t fit your wrist properly, or doesn’t suit your style, meaning that possible a leather, or rubber strap is the way forward, and vice versa!

As mentioned previously, allergens are something to consider for many people when buying a watch. Something that Rado have considered and tackled as much as they can. Many people will have allergic reactions to different metals, some will simply be slight irritation, or itchiness, and some will be larger rashes and pain. Whichever it is, it takes the enjoyment away from wearing the watch you want to wear. However, Rado have been able to develop a couple of different materials, used in their bracelets and cases, that are hypoallergenic. These are materials that are perfect for those with sensitive skin, or allergens to metal. If this is something that you may need to consider, then High-Tech Ceramic and Plasma High-Tech Ceramic watches may be something for you to look at!

Collection

Next up, you will have to choose which collection, or collections you want to focus on. Rado offer a great range of watches, from the Hyperchrome and Centrix, to the Ceramica and True! It is important to get a good idea of what is available in each category, so you know which is going to be for you, plenty of research is advised!

With Rado, and many other brands, each collection holds similar style watches, or watches intended for a similar purpose. This helps a lot, as you will be able to narrow down your search to a couple of different categories that may be right for you! As we are looking at buying a Rado watch for men, we will try to focus on the categories featuring gent’s watches!

For example, if you told us you were looking for a modern, sporty watch, we would advise looking closer at the Hyperchrome collection, but if you were looking for a smart dress watch, it would be the Coupole! Each category is different, but still shows off the same Rado flair, offers the same high quality and luxury feel.

It may also be a good idea to ask about any Limited Edition watches too. Owning something that is limited edition is always a great feeling, as it is special to know that only so many others exist. This being the case, it is always a good idea to ask one of our staff members about the availability of a limited edition model, if this is something you are interested in of course!
