“ Brand: Rado / Watch for: Women „
I've owned this watch for about 12 years. As I'm a "techie" I just love the futuristic styling. More so as I'm pretty heavy-handed with my belongings, this is almost indestructible!
Although sold as a woman's watch I wear it regularly and it looks great on a man's wrist too.
The sapphire crystal glass is scratch-proof, I've even accidentally scraped it against a brick wall with no discernible marking. I love the fact the bracelet is made from the same material as the space shuttle tiles, again I've never had a scratch on it all this time.
It is one of those watches that people don't initially notice but when they do are always very taken with it.
Timekeeping is never a problem and batteries can usually be changed cheaply at a local jeweller. The only caveat to that is if you want to keep the waterproofing it generally has to go back to Rado for a service. I've just had mine serviced and battery replaced. It's not cheap, it cost £120 for the service, £30 for the battery and water-proofing. And I didn't even go to Rado for that! However due a very poor experience and being without my watch for 3 months, I'd recommend doing what I will in future, which is pay the premium and always go to Rado for service.
I can't really comment on the price, as I bought mine abroad for a substantial reduction. All I can say is the watch will last a lifetime, so divide the cost by how many years you expect to own it and you'll see you've got a tremendous bargain.
