Rado’s new collection covers the whole range of elements that have helped make it a major global brand: materials, innovation, technology, history, lightness, smoothness, design, warmth, energy, agelessness, durability, vibrancy, style, fashion, and colour. Says Rado CEO Matthias Breschan, “Why we do what we do won’t change, what we do won’t change. How we present and talk about the brand we’re so proud of, needed to change. We believe ‘Feel It!’ will allow us to connect and engage with a whole new audience of watch enthusiasts all around the world.” We take a look at some of the pieces from the collection.
