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!
RADO raises its Diastar series up a notch by an upgrade to its overall form & function with the Diastar Sport Diver. Its general shape is round - a departure from the original oval, while the ceramic is utilized as a rotating bezel with embossed detailing. The diver's case & screw-down crown combination makes it a functional diver's accessory.
