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.
