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 innovative use of ceramics was such 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!

This particular RADO Diastar is a very rare variant! We have had many Diastars in the past but we've never had anything like this! This watch models a beveled polygon case, Russian diamond hours & a striking faceted mirror trim - these attributes set it apart from all other Diastars.

CERAMIC beveled polygon case; RADO advertised that its ceramics are scratch-proof & retain color & sheen for more than a lifetime
