Baselworld 2012 is approaching, and we have more news from Rado about a new series of ceramic watches for men and women called the Hyperchrome.

Rado D-Star 200 Diver Announced

2012 January 05

Matt Baily is Montreal’s latest Rado retailer, and we brought in the brand in anticipation of their new releases for 2012 that promised to bring the brand into the fore of the high-tech watch market after years of conservative design. Now we have our first glimpse of the direction that Rado is going with the new D-Star 200 diving models, announced this week on the Rado website.

New Rado Sintra XXL Skeleton Chronometer

The latest addition to the Matt Baily lineup is Rado, a favourite brand among fashion conscious trend-setters who want avant-garde design and high-tech materials. A pioneer in the field of composites and ceramic watch cases, Rado has made a name for itself by innovating in a traditionally conservative Swiss watch market. One of the centrepieces of the Rado collection is the Sintra, a tonneau-shaped model available in a variety of ceramic colours with an integrated bracelet. And the flagship of the Sintra collection is the new XXL Skeleton Chronometer, which showcases a beautifully skeletonized automatic movement.

Bell & Ross Military Ceramic

2011 September 12

Ceramic is the latest trend in watch technology, having been dormant for many years (ceramic watches first emerged in the 1960s). The recent popularity of ceramic watches like the Chanel J12, not to mention the ceramic accents on high-tech watches from Hublot and Audemars Piguet, has created a demand for more and more ceramic designs from a variety of manufacturers. Entering the fray is Bell & Ross with a variety of new ceramic models, including the BR03-92 Military Ceramic (green, as we have here, and blue due later this year) and the upcoming BR01-92 Ceramic.

The Bell & Ross BR 03-92 Military Ceramic is the culmination of the company's love for ceramic materials. It is the ceramic watch that best embodies the Bell & Ross design and manufacturing principles. In a video taken at Bell & Ross headquarters in Paris, the manufacturer's head of communications shows us this magnificent piece in details

Bell & Ross BR 03-92 Military Ceramic

2010 April 16

In the past few years Bell & Ross has been testing the waters with several watches made of or with ceramic. The BR-03 White Ceramic and BR-S Ceramic models are examples that pleased many watch buyers. These buyers are in search of the quality of high-end watches adorned with the unique esthetic characteristics of ceramic. At the Baselworld 2010 fair in Switzerland, a new Bell & Ross ceramic watch was released that takes advantage of this hot substance in ways that are more suited to the company's design philosophy. The Bell & Ross BR 03-92 Military Ceramic showcases the material's technical qualities alongside its esthetic qualities.

2009 August 13

In the past year, the usage of ceramic has been greatly popularized by brands such as Chanel, Hublot, and Bell & Ross. Although its benefits were known to the watch world for many years, it is only recently that the general, watch-loving public has become appreciative of the material's qualities. Chanel has offered the J12 ceramic watch for many years now. Bell & Ross, while comparably a newcomer to the ceramic game, have slightly preceded the boom with the production of the BR-03 Ceramic. I have chosen to compare two popular models from Chanel and Bell And Ross in order to highlight the advantages and allure of ceramic on watches.
