(1986) RADO IN­TE­GRAL

Plaza Watch International - - The 50 Most Influential -

Con­tin­u­ing to ex­plore ma­te­ri­als to make its watches scratch­proof, it was in this year that Rado ac­cel­er­ated the pace of the in­dus­try’s high-tech ce­ramic use by in­tro­duc­ing the In­te­gral model. Ad­di­tion­ally, the In­te­gral fea­tured a sap­phire crys­tal (not yet the ne plus ul­tra of watch crys­tals; in fact sap­phire crys­tal was al­most non-ex­is­tent in this decade), whose edge bor­dered the ce­ramic case seam­lessly, lend­ing it a feel of one con­tin­u­ous piece, which prompted the model’s name.
