The RADO Diastar is an iconic timepiece, being the first & only one of its kind! Other watchmakers attempted 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 owning a piece of watchmaking history!

EXTERNAL CONDITION: This watch is in *EXCELLENT condition (88-92%): Evidence of use is visible to the unaided eye. Scratches are light, but more numerous than "near mint".​

INTERNAL CONDITION: This watch is in *NEAR MINT condition (93-97%): working perfectly, keeping good time & needs nothing.​

*condition descriptives mainly based on the Timezone Grading System​
