The story

The story of horology-pioneering brand Rado is one of humble beginnings; brothers Fritz, Ernst and Werner Schlup founded their original atelier in a conversion of their parent’s home in Lengnau, Switzerland, trading under the name ‘Schlup & Co’. This modest set-up later exploded into one of the world’s largest producers of watch movements by the end of the Second World War, renowned from the beginning for their innovative and beautiful timepieces. The name ‘Schlup & Co’ changed to ‘Rado’ in the 1950’s, but their strong philosophy hasn’t changed: “If we can imagine it, we can make it.”
