Inspired by Intergalactic Travel: The Uniquely-shaped Limited Edition Rado R-One Review
An exceptional team of engineers, scientists and designers with an unflappable belief in strength of technology turned a simple clockwork manufacturer into an innovative and world-class brand.
The watch valuation experts at Crown and Caliber will tell you that inspiration determines construction, and construction influences valuation. Limited editions may also influence watch valuation. The Limited Edition Rado R-One claims “intergalactic travel” as its inspiration.
The Rado R-One isn’t for everyone – that’s why Rado is only producing 300 of them. Ironically enough, this “intergalactic watch” comes packaged in a wooden box. The natural element of wood is designed to provide a time capsule feel. Rado asserts that the fixation of a sapphire crystal over the watch’s uniquely-shaped design pushes “new physical limits.”
The Rado R-One employs a Swiss-made automatic chronograph to measure time. The chronograph is one of the smallest ever produced.
What do you think? Does it conjure images of intergalactic travel in your mind?
