Rado Ceramica Quartz Swiss Watch Review: Jubile, Chronograph,

Updated on January 12, 2015

Rado Ceramica

Rado Ceramica collection epitomizes the brand's design elements starting from its simple title and ending with the multifunction quartz complication of one of its models. The square case lies in line with the ceramic bracelet – a complete, seamless incorporation that aggressively understates the complexity of the materials via the minimalism of the visuals.

Ceramica watches come in XS, S, L and XL sizes, the entry level model featuring three central hands and a date aperture at six o'clock. More elaborate versions, Jubile among them, include diamonds and sapphires, subdials that serve the chronograph complication, and even a digital electronic display.

One of the main features of this line is the bracelet: it consists of numerous identical stripes of high-tech ceramic that create the semblance of an assembly-line – a metaphor of time slipping away.

Quartz chronograph watches contain a pair of pushers on the right side of the case; they activate the 30 minutes, 10 minutes, and seconds subdials scattered asymmetrically on the face. The rings of the subdials receive a platinum or a gold color treatment (Jubilee versions add diamonds).

Additionally, Chronograph and Matt lines provide an alternative to the bare backdrops (which might appear intimidating) of the regular timers by introducing indexes.


Rado are aware that pure black is not everybody's cup of tea, and color the bracelets of some watches with platinum gray. Gray interacts with black, creating a characteristic sophisticated appearance.


Jubile watches include anywhere from 4 to 414 diamonds (or sapphires) that can mark the quarter hours or completely pave the dial. Most timepieces, however, settle for a ring of stones around the date or chronograph complications.

Jubile lines play an important role in Rado oeuvre – most collections have one – implying that despite the uncompromising minimalism, this is a genuine high-end, luxury brand.
