Rado has announced the release of its new DiaMaster Diamonds watches.
The ‘Dia’ name comes from the original Rado term ‘DiaStar’, coined in 1962 when the Swiss brand first succeeded creating scratch resistant watch.
The new collection combines polished plasma high-tech ceramic on the case with diamonds displayed as a ring on the dial.
Two of the designs feature mother-of-pearl dials, one in white and one in black, and retail for $2,050 and $2,600 respectively while the blue dial with blue strap and brown dial with white strap combos retail for $2,000 and $2,600 each.
Each piece in the collection is powered by the ETA E63. 111 movement and features 8 jewels, 3 hands and shows the date at 6 o’clock.
The $2,600 styles feature 49 diamonds in comparison to 24 in the others.
This release comes just months after the company announced it was redesigning its 1962 divers watch.
