The RADO Diastar 100m New Original Chronograph is RADO's contemporary addition to its Diastar line, one of the most iconic & enduring in watchmaking history.
RADO introduced the Diastar in 1962, as the world's first scratchproof watch with the use of tungsten carbide ceramic / hardmetal for its case, which was not only sturdy, but also aesthetic - an impressive technical innovation. The brand has since been known for combining new materials with avant-garde design.
This RADO Diastar 100m New Original Chronograph features a blue dial, which complements its iridescent ceramic case. It has a 3-register chronograph, diagonal date & unique antenna hour markers. This timepiece is a beautifully balanced mix of materials, textures & colors- RADO is, after all, the precursor of material & design innovation in watchmaking!
