Rado introduces DiaStar Original Skeleton

When Rado introduced the first DiaStar in 1962, it caught the watch world's attention, standing out in an era of conventional design.

Despite initial uncertainty, its unique design, durable materials, and extreme resistance marked a significant shift in the industry, garnering a dedicated following over the years.

In 2022, Rado celebrated DiaStar's 60th anniversary with new models, transitioning from tungsten carbide to Rado Ceramos™ for the case material. This change showcased Ceramos™' extraordinary durability, lightness, and scratch resistance, enhancing wearer comfort and offering a distinctive feel. The launch included an update of the yellow-gold DiaStar Original, the first to feature a Ceramos™ bezel.

The new DiaStar Original Skeleton watch offers a yellow-gold coloured case and Rado's Art of Skeletonization, revealing the innovative anthracite-grey coated R808 automatic calibre through a sapphire crystal. With a Nivachron™ balance hairspring for magnetic resistance, a power reserve of 80 hours, and water resistance up to 100 meters, it combines functionality with style.

The black dial, complemented by white Super-LumiNova® coated indexes and hands, features a gold-coloured Rado anchor symbol on a red background, adding a touch of elegance. Presented on a polished and brushed yellow-gold coloured PVD-coated stainless steel bracelet with Rado's EasyClip system, it embodies the radical design DNA of its predecessor while embracing modern sophistication.

Rado's founders once said: “If we can imagine it, we can make it. And if we can make it, we will.”
