Watch Making
"In the framework of the very latest in high technology projects, the material high-tech ceramics is presently experiencing a phenomenal boom. During the early 1980s, Rado began to use high-tech ceramics in watch-making. Decisive factors for this were the scratchproofness and durability, but also the natural beauty, the intense brilliance and the special skin-friendliness of this material."
