RADO Will Always Be Rad

I still remember my first encounter with RADO watches. I was graduating from high school and my mom thought it was time for a grown up watch as a token to remember the day. She took me to Birks to peruse their selection. I am sure she expected me to gravitate to one of the ‘status’ brands; she had quickly learned that I was often apt to pick out the most expensive item in any store. And I would argue that rather I picked out the best designed items in the stores (and sometimes those all happened to be the most expensive but not always). But I digress.

While the salesman was showing me all their classic gold and silver watches my eye wandered over to a slick black watch made entirely out of ceramic. At that time I didn’t even know you could make a watch out of ceramic. This is when I discovered RADO.

One of the latest from RADO is the TrueLine – it is simple, sophisticated and sublime. I want it in all three colourways.

Christian has been a cultural and style junkie since the age of 6; while most kids were swiping cookies, he was swiping his grandfathers' Patek Philippe. Raised to appreciate art, fashion,design and  literature (yeah, this one actually reads) by a single mother fondly called Jackie-O. Christian quickly went from childhood cultural capital thief to academia protégé. Referred to as the cat's meow by some, too clever by half by others, Christian eschewed the academic life and ran away to join the circus -the fashion circus. Several well-appointed positions later and a career on the rise would be most people's dream but it was time to say fuck off and start all over again.

This is Christian Dare Unedited.
