Rado DiaStar Is The Original Skeleton

Rado DiaStar Is The Original Skeleton

The Rado DiaStar Original Skeleton features another variant of the high-quality R808 automatic calibre, anthracite-grey coated and complemented by various elements in its workings, for a lovely visual dance of contrasts.

Thanks to sapphire crystal windows on both front and back, the automatic movement can be appreciated in full technical elegance, providing 80 hours of power reserve. An anti-magnetic Nivachron™ hairspring ensures that everything stays extremely precise and reliable, in a movement that has been tested in a full five positions. Its open structure, and the impressive R808 skeleton movement give a lighter, airier note to the new DiaStar Original, a perfect design counterpoint inside the visual frame created by the Ceramos™ bezel.

The darker tone is further set off by select coloured elements inside the movement, or bicolour components such as the hands and indices, to add tremendous richness of contrast throughout, in an interesting composition that every watch-lover will appreciate. The floating indices, which add to the open nature of the design, and the hour and minute hands are treated with white Super-LumiNova®, for great readability even in low-light conditions. 

No detail was left untouched in the design phase, such as the clever shape of the seconds sweeper to the gorgeous front sapphire crystal, facetted on the external face with a totally eye-catching square motif reminiscent of an earlier model and treated with anti-reflective coating on the inside face. The bracelet is a very comfortable triple-row type in polished stainless steel, with an H-link design and attractive, alternating polished/brushed elements. It is fastened by a triple-fold stainless-steel buckle for reliable safety.
