The dial is decorated with gold filigree! The beautiful intricate openwork becomes very visible against the black enamel.

The RADO Diastar is an iconic timepiece, being the first & only one of its kind! Other watchmakers made attempts to copy the Diastar but none have ever truly replicated the quality & reputation that RADO made for it!

RADO's adventurous approach in design through its Diastar line was a breakthrough in watchmaking in the 70s that RADO continues its Diastar series to this day! Owning the original Diastar of the 70s is like owning a piece of watchmaking history!
