rado diastar automatic day-date watch

The RADO Diastar is an iconic timepiece, being the first & only one of its kind! Other watchmakers attempted 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 owning a piece of watchmaking history!
