RADO r5.5 XXL Chronograph

RADO brings another member of the Jasper Morrison r5.5 family into the world

14 Apr 2011

If there’s one collaboration that ‘gives us the wants’, it the r5.5 collection from RADO. If you’re a lover of good design and master craftsmanship – and if your budget can stretch to it – these watches are worth a look in.

So, we thought we should bring you a little bit of news; there’s been a birth in the family, a big one! RADO has just released the new r5.5 XXL, which features the same seamless case and bracelet design in high-tech ceramics with an “extra size quartz chronograph movement”.

 

 

Featuring the same sharp, clear sapphire crystal glass as the original the matt black version has white indexes and hands against a matt black face, while the sophisticated aesthetic of the platinum matt version glows with yellow hands on a brushed platinum dial.

The watch’s designer, Jasper Morrison, has impressed us lately with a few new designs for English brand Punkt. for a cordless telephone and an alarm clock (to be launched this week at the Milan Furniture fair). So if you’re a fan, then you can have the Morrison watch for your wrist and the clock for your bedside table.

 

Both versions of the r5.5 XXL Chronograph will set you back $4,075.
