RADO TRADITION 1965
Inspired by the Manhattan skyline, the 1965 original sports an unmistakable geometric design, incorporating elements such as rectangular hour and minute markers, a squared day-date complication window and the iconic Rado red anchor at 9 o’clock. The new Tradition 1965 XL retains this aesthetic while integrating the innovative materials and design language Rado is renowned for. The case is now crafted from PVD coated titanium, a material that is almost 40% lighter than stainless steel. Sapphire crystal has been employed for the glass and the unmistakable “tuning fork” hour and minute hands boast superior legibility. This is Tradition, updated for the 21st Century. The Tradition 1965 represents a brief celebration of an extraordinary 1960s creation by Rado. Production is limited to 1,965 pieces. Rado has also created a very special version with a diamond encrusted case and dial, limited to just 65 pieces. This is truly a treat for lovers of timepieces past and present.
