Rado was established as the Uhrwerkfabrik Schlup & Co. in the year 1917 in Lengnau by the brothers Schlup. In the next few decades Rado worked on several design icons, the more modern of these still being documented on their official site’s historical page. Not mentioned however are several models from the fifties untill the late eighties, like this Alpine series Schilthorn.
One of Rado’s lesser known preoccupations – apart from scratch resistance – was with alpine geography, it lasted only a short while from circa 1972 untill 1974, but these were specifically designed to look like the mountains they were named for. Of course, featured prominently is the Rado anchor which moves when the watch moves; a design feature that lasted well into the eighties with Rado. Also, many of them were fitted with sapphire crystals and/or were featured in the Diastar range like the Rado Eiger or Balboa
