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!

faceted CERAMIC & GLASS case; The color of the ceramic is gold while the glass is black. Both cermic & glass materials are highly reflective. RADO advertised that its ceramics are scratch-proof & retain color & sheen for more than a lifetime
