Here’s a glimpse into the world of our premium handcrafted watches, a testament to the rich Norwegian craftsmanship and the brilliance of aluminum, the star element in our creations.

The Aluminum Edge

Before delving into the journey of crafting a Radium watch, it is essential to understand the pivotal role of aluminum, a material that has revolutionized the art of watchmaking. Aluminum stands out for its remarkable properties; it is lightweight, yet possesses an exceptional strength-to-weight ratio. Its resistance to corrosion ensures longevity, a trait that is quintessential to a timeless piece such as a watch.

Moreover, aluminum has a unique ability to showcase a wide spectrum of finishes, from a silky matte to a glossy sheen, allowing for an extensive range of aesthetic possibilities. This versatility, combined with its hypoallergenic properties, positions aluminum as an undisputed choice for crafting premium watches.

The Norwegian Aluminum: A Legacy of Purity and Sustainability

At the heart of Radium Instruments lies a commitment to sustainability and quality, which is why we choose Norwegian aluminum, specifically sourced from Norsk Hydro. Norwegian aluminum is renowned for its exceptional purity, produced in harmony with the breathtaking natural surroundings of Norway. The integration of hydroelectric power in the production process significantly reduces carbon emissions, making it a choice that resonates with both quality and environmental consciousness.

By choosing Norwegian aluminum, Radium Instruments not only offers a piece of Norway’s rich heritage but also a product that stands as a beacon of sustainability and innovation in the modern world.

Crafting Excellence: From Milling to Assembly

The journey of a Radium watch begins in our state-of-the-art facility in Oslo, where skilled craftsmen embrace the art of CNC milling, a process that marries precision with the human touch. CNC milling allows us to sculpt the aluminum with remarkable accuracy, creating intricate designs and patterns that are both modern and timeless.

However, what truly sets a Radium watch apart is the personal touch. Each piece is individually handled by a skilled craftsman, ensuring not only precision but also a personal touch, a fragment of the creator’s soul embedded within. This meticulous process ensures that each watch meets the highest standards of quality and craftsmanship, a true reflection of Norwegian expertise.

Once the individual components are crafted to perfection, they undergo a final treatment to enhance their resistance to wear and tear, ensuring that a Radium watch remains a steadfast companion through the sands of time. This final step cements the legacy of a Radium watch, a testimony to the excellence and dedication that goes into creating a piece that is truly beyond time.
