Rado presents the next chapter in the DiaStar story with a 60th anniversary edition in collaboration with Swiss designer Alfredo Häberli.
Framed by a radial-brushed Ceramos™ cap with polished angles and detailing set over a matching, monochrome stainless steel case, the watch also features a sapphire crystal with hexagonal facets to mark six decades since the original watch.
The case and dial are made in a monochromatic colour scheme, in contrast, the hands and hour markers are coloured with Super-LumiNova®. Inside, the Rado R764 automatic movement with 80 hours of power reserve ensures reliable and precise timekeeping. The watch has a diameter of 38 mm and is water resistant to 100m.
Alfredo Häberli is known for designs that are reduced and frequently inventive, his work is consistent and versatile, avoiding trends and exuding a solid and enduring quality that intertwines with material, technology and time itself. He has been praised continuously for his unique ability to embrace reality while employing fantasy, as well as for his constant search for originality and innovation.
This edition comes in a stylish grey pouch with a woven stainless-steel mesh ‘Milanese’ bracelet, as well as a mottled grey textile strap: the EasyClip system makes interchanging for a different look effortlessly quick.
