The Radar brand was born in 1917. In the development of the past century, it has become an iconic symbol of material innovation. Looking back at the history of radar, the innovations and breakthroughs in high-tech materials are vivid. Since its establishment, Radar has been adhering to the innovative spirit of ‘if you can imagine, you can create, if you can create, you can achieve’, and make persistent breakthrough attempts in the field of high-tech materials to create the world’s most difficult Worn watch.
Since the first wristwatch made of tungsten-titanium alloy in 1962, radar has opened its own path of innovation. In the years of development, it has continuously broken the boundaries of the watchmaking industry and is committed to the exploration and application of high-tech materials. .
The first wristwatch made of tungsten-titanium in 1962
Radar first introduced high-tech ceramic materials to the watchmaking industry in the 1980s. Since then, it has forged an inextricable bond with this material. High-tech ceramics have advantages that other materials cannot match, such as hypoallergenic, light and comfortable, comfortable wearing experience, etc., and the most important thing is that it is not easy to wear, but any watch made of high-tech ceramics can Fearless of the challenges of years, it still looks as new as many years later. Because of this, ‘not easy to wear’ has become the radar brand logo.

Radar’s First All-Ceramic Watch-Ceramica
Four years later, Ceramica, a high-tech ceramic watch, was born, and once again brought Radar’s high-tech ceramic manufacturing technology to the fullest. The case and bracelet were integrated into one, which became another brand new for the Radar brand. Masterpiece.
1991: the first white high-tech ceramic watch
Radar’s first white high-tech ceramic watch-Coupole
After a year, Radar’s breakthrough in the field of high-tech ceramics has not only been limited to shape, but more challenging to colorful colors. White high-tech ceramics emerged at the historic moment, and were first applied to the Coupole series Since then, the history of only black high-tech ceramics has ended, giving the watch a sense of agility and simplicity.
1993: The first platinum-gold high-tech ceramic watch
The first platinum high-tech ceramic watch
The research and development of color has never stopped. Radar hopes that the metal luster can also be represented by high-tech ceramic materials. Exploring high-tech ceramic composite materials has become another historical task of radar. Platinum gold high-tech ceramics came into being two years later. Since then, rose gold and golden high-tech ceramics have also come out. Persevering in exploration and innovation, radar allows all ‘precious metals’ to have the ‘not easy to wear’ of high-tech ceramics.
1998: the first plasma high-tech ceramic watch
The first plasma high-tech ceramic watch
Following the continuous breakthrough in high-tech ceramic colors, in 1998, Radar opened a new chapter in the field of high-tech ceramics. Plasma high-tech ceramics came out stunningly. The warm gray luster gave high-tech ceramics a metallic texture. The ceramic series became the first watch series to use plasma high-tech ceramic materials. Unlike all previous ‘precious metal’ high-tech ceramics: Plasma high-tech ceramics do not contain any metal elements. This technology has been patented and is proprietary to radar.
2002: The first hardest watch V10K
Radar V10K series
In 2002, Radar created the world’s hardest watch, the V10K series, with a hardness of 10,000 Vickers comparable to natural diamonds, a major leap in the field of materials.
2009: Radar injection molding R5.5 series watch
Radar R5.5 series
In 2009, Radar collaborated with world-renowned industrial designer Jasper Morrison to work together to create the R5.5 series watch. This watch is made of high-tech ceramics using injection molding technology. Naturally.
2011: First introduction of a one-piece high-tech ceramic case
High-tech ceramic integrated case-Emperor Star Series
In 2011, Radar’s breakthrough in the field of high-tech ceramics once again returned to shape, creating a high-tech ceramic monolithic case, which was first applied in the Emperor Star series, and once again set a new benchmark for the high-tech ceramics field. The appearance of this watch completely overturns the previous high-tech ceramic case that always contains a steel ‘base’ structure. The high-tech ceramic monolithic case precisely meets the design, perfectly reaching the thinness of the exterior design, but Can support the load, once again interpret the radar’s unremitting and innovative brand concept.
2012: Haoxing Series and True Thin Series come out
Rado Star Series
Radar really thin series
In 2012, Radar relied on the innovation of high-tech materials and breakthroughs in watch design to launch a new Haoxing series watch, combining high-tech ceramics or platinum, gold or rose gold Ceramos ™ titanium carbide ceramics with stainless steel for a new look The iconic design once again demonstrates Radar’s unique design style and incisive technical level.
2013: the first ultralight ceramic watch
Radar DiaMaster RHW1 watch
If it is said that the one-piece case is thin and light in shape, then the titanium nitride and tri-silicon high-tech ceramics brought by Radar two years later have achieved extreme lightness in essence. Its quality is half that of ordinary high-tech ceramics, and it has irrefutablely become ultra-light high-tech ceramics.
2013: Isa series ladies watches come out
Radar Isa Women’s Watch
In 2013, Radar turned dreams into reality again, creating the first women’s wristwatch Isa series of high-tech ceramic touch watches, without crown design, adjustment time just touch the dial, the case is a smooth arc Shaped, warm to the touch, in one go.
2014: The first cool grey high-tech ceramic watch
Radar’s first cool grey high-tech ceramic watch-HyperChrome
When everyone was looking forward to the radar’s new breakthrough in the field of high-tech ceramics in 2014, cool gray high-tech ceramics came into view. Cool gray high-tech ceramics broke the limitation of the non-energy production of colored ceramics. In other words, radar has once again brought more perfect technology to the high-tech ceramics field, so that colored high-tech ceramics no longer become the limited style of the brand, and completely turn dreams into reality.
2015: The first chocolate brown high-tech ceramic watch
In 2015, Radar’s color innovation went one step further, and a new chocolate brown watch was added to create the ultimate artistic effect again. The high-tech ceramics used in the watch, although not containing any metal components, shine with metallic luster, which is another new masterpiece of radar on the road of many years of watchmaking.
2016: High-tech ceramics in new shades
After the chocolate-colored ceramic material in 2015, Radar added color to the latest watch lineup during this year’s Basel. The new dark green and navy blue watches debuted. Keeping pace with the current fashion, Radar’s colorful and bold attempts will break through innovation once again and solidify the status of material master.
Summary: Radar has always been at the forefront of innovation in the field of high-tech ceramics with unquestionable advantages. It not only shows the extraordinary and extraordinary high-tech ceramics production technology in all aspects in terms of shape, quality, and color, but also has absolute advantages in watchmaking The industry has demonstrated its status as a master of high-tech ceramics.
