Rado r5.5 Automatic

The continuation of a modern classic by Jasper Morrison and Rado

12 Apr 2010

In clothes fashion is seasonal – though classic styles and shapes may come and go – but a watch has a greater responsibility, to provide an aesthetic that lasts as long as its cogs turn.

This is something Rado understand better than most, investing not only in the high-tech ceramics and internal mechanisms, but in top, world-class design.

Building on the successful r5.5 collection – a collaboration with British designer Jasper Morrison – Rado now unveil the r5.5 Automatic.

This new addition to the award-winning line continues the relationship between Morrison and Rado, representing a shared passion, philosophy and enthusiasm for the use of high-tech ceramics.

Exhibiting the same seamless and exquisite fusion of case and bracelet – and the distinctive square silhouette of the dial so recognized of the r5.5 – the new r5.5 Automatic stays true to the original, while offering its own personality.

This new design offers white luminous indexes and three hands, providing dramatic contrast with the deep matt black of the dial, covered in sapphire crystal. The date is perfectly positioned at 3 o’clock and the automatic movement of the watch is visible through the transparent back, also sapphire crystal.

With the r5.5 collection from Rado and Jasper Morrison, you may never need to buy another watch again… but you’ll probably want to.
