This watch keeps good time & is in good working condition! Add this to your collection of vintage quality timepieces!
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 model is one of the very few vintage Diastar quartz watches ever manufactured by RADO, to keep up with the rising trend of quartz watches (for its higher level of accuracy compared to mechanicals) in the 1970s.
This particular RADO Diastar Quartz is a testimony to the company's remarkable use of uncoventional materials with retro-futuristic design. The ceramic has a pink tint, which is very uncommon & its faceted crystal is cut into a unique pyramid shape, where its facets are splayed out from a central point.
EXTERNAL CONDITION: This watch is in *NEAR MINT condition (93-97%): Showing very light signs of wear. Very faint scratches on the case, bezel, bracelet or buckle are visible to the naked eye.
